I have seen reports that the next update will turn on DNS over HTTPS and Trusted Recursive Resolver via Cloudfair by default. I want to be sure I know how to turn this off before I will install any further updates to Firefox, I trust MY DNS more than Cloudfair.

The about:config trick doesn't work on Drudge. Chrome has an add-on that blocks autorefresh, but it doesn't work on Drudge, either. Apparently Drudge is hell-bent on autorefreshing his page every thirty seconds whether you like it or not. Has anyone figured out how to make Drudge stop autorefreshing? I used to use NoScript, but since Quantum, NoScript has been transformed into a monstrosity I can't make head or tail of.

Well, as written above. I'm using these shortcuts quite often to select words when typing and editing. Suddenly it stopped working. I'm on FF 61.0.2.

In some cases it works, in some not. Right here it works, for example. On Github doesn't.

Just for the record FF Developer Edition 62.0b20 works fine.

Thanks

There is a video embedded in this webpage http://slippedisc.com/2018/08/what-moscows-new-concert-hall-sounds-like/#comment-475204 that doesn't display in Firefox but does display in MS Edge.

NOTE: This is just one example of the problem. It is most notable on the slippedisc.com website.

A similar problem happens on this website https://www.diynetwork.com/ultimate-retreat/sweepstakes?nl=R-DIY:UR2018_2018-08-24_Enter-DIY&bid=14256743&c32=ee510e44c646c5d1116f9d8f9c6fefac5560bd00&ssid=2016_HGTV_Dream_Home_2016_Wildfire&sni_by=1946&sni_gn=Male

There is a Radio Button that says "ENTER", Clicking on it does nothing. It works in MS Edge.
