Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

Once again my account is locked on one of my computers. It says the email was returned but there was no email sent to the address. Oddly, the account is locked on one machine, the one that has been logged on the longest, but my other three machines have no trouble connecting and syncing. This seems to have happened after firefox updated itself (even though I had it set not to. It also removed all the settings I had spent a considerable amount of time customizing)

I am on a Raspberry Pi 4 (4GB) running Ubuntu MATE. I am trying to play Spotify via the web player, but I don't have Widevine installed. However, I can't find a setting anywhere to enable it or download it. Could someone point me in the right direction as to where I can install it properly and get it up and running? Thanks!

Hi, how do we set Firefox 97 to use the os/system print dialog?

Before Firefox 97 we could change these settings in about:config:

print.tab_modal.enabled = false widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal = true

But they are both gone now.

There is now widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.print, which is an integer (2 by default).

But no matter what integer it is set to, we still don't get the os/system print dialog.

We are using Arch Linux, but we don't expect that to be of any importance -- after all, it worked before Firefox 97.

Thanks for your time :o)

In the past I used to be able to turn encrypted sni on I did a firefox reset yesterday then I reinstalled my add ons

and I re-enabled encrypted sni by setting: about:config network.security.esni.enabled = true

but when I test it on https://www.cloudflare.com/ssl/encrypted-sni/ the test takes a lot longer and also everything is green except esni: "Your browser did not encrypt the SNI when visiting this page."

So something is clearly wrong, but I don't know what it is.

how do I fix this?

Is there an easier way to view two tabs on the screen at the same time - "split screen" fashion? One can open one tab in a second window and adjust to have one window on the top half of the display and the other on the bottom. But this is a awkward.

See screenshot of this. It shows downtown Minneapolis in Google maps at two different scales. (Note that the I35W crossing of the Mississippi in the upper right corner is the one that collapsed in 2011).

One can switch back and forth between two tabs (maybe after moving the two tabs to be adjacent). But this is still suboptimal.

I use splitscreen in my text editor all the time (vertically or horizontally) and find it very useful. I wish there were an easy way to switch to/from split screen in Firefox.

BTW I searched the Firefox "Find help..." for: "split screen" tabs and got 1640 hits! I looked at the first 10 pages and saw nothing relevant.
