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.

My Firefox can't play any video on any websites. Youtube video keeps on buffering forever and I can't click on the play button. But preview images still shows up when I hover the mouse over video bar. This happened after I updated to latest FF version

I've tried every solutions provided by Mozilla Support: clear caches, disable extensions, uncheck hardware acceleration,.... you name it I've tried it all. Other browsers are just fine, but since FF is my main browser for work I don't want to switch to another one just for music or video.

Thank you for your support.

Hi,

The electric cut out while my Firefox browser was open. Now I get a crash every time I try to open Firefox. I can't send a crash report and windows will not fix the problem. How do I fix this? I need Firefox to work as it has all my passwords and bookmarks saved. Why can't I simply move over to the developer edition? I did try but the morons at Morzilla didn't add any options for moving bookmarks and passwords from Firefox to the developer edition. Thanks a lot Morzilla, you really fucked up my day.

Firefox 64 bit beta closing w/o error message or crash report, including in troubleshooting mode.

Firefox 90b8 (64 bit). Note: I had previously been using 32-bit and it would crash once or more per day WITH crash files, many of which were (I think) submitted to you. My PC may be a factor: It's a "new old stock" (vintage 2016 or so) Pipo X9S. This model has 4 GB RAM and a 64 GB EMMC "disk." All disk operations are pathetically slow and I suspect this a factor in the poor performance.

I'd been hoping to see if the 64-bit build works better or could provide crash files. Clearly there's still something broken, but why no crash message/file?

The PC itself has been checked as well as I can. Latest win10 with all updates. Chkdsk /F finds no errors. I even downloaded and ran MEMTEST86 -- no problems there.

Firefox's "Use" is typically streaming music (SoundCloud) but many crashes happen when also doing normal web browsing in a 2nd tab.

Can someone help me to set up crash messages and reporting? Thank you.

In the Find box, sometimes the search skips over my word of interest before I fully type in the word.

I would like to search the old fashioned way in the Find box. Let me completely type my search word and hit Enter before the search commences.


Is this possible?


I do not have the "Search as You Type" option turned on, which really does not apply to the Find box.

Please explain why my Yahoo Toolbar disappeared after the latest Firefox update-All I am told is "it is incompatible." This is not acceptable-I use Yahoo Toolbar to navigate the websites I check on everyday. I certainly do not want to go back to I.E. for my browsing needs but what choice do I have if I can't use Yahoo Toolbar w/ my Firefox browser?
