Pasting in FireFox and screenshots not working - FireFox developer 88.0b2 (64bit) on Win10 Pro x64

Recently, I think it was yesterday when I updated FireFox developer to 88.0b2 (64bit) on my OS Windows 10 Pro (x64) 22H2 19042.870.

Firstly I noticed "take screenshot" option dissapeared from "3 dots" on the URL bar. Secondly, the "paste" (right click or CTRL + V) stopped working.

I cannot paste text neither from my Notepad or some Text Editor as usuall to some input field or textarea on some Website.

I can copy text from some input field of an Website, but cannot paste the text inside it from a Windows Explorer or whatever.

What is that wrong with FireFox stable/unstable versions?

I've had problems on "normal" FireFox, now I got them either on "developer". I really like this browser, but more and more it seems I would need to switch to some other just because.

I've been using Spanish (Mexico) dictionary for a few years as my default spell checking dictionary. However, it lacks a lot of common words and local idioms that I use everyday.

How can I create a new dictionary for Spanish (Colombia), or contribute to the Mexican one? I can't find a Github repo with the project.

Is it possible for Mozilla Firefox to develop a feature that can delete downloaded files directly within the browser, like Edge does?

First of all, thank you for browsing and answering! Whenever I download a file by mistake, I have to go to File Explorer to delete it, even though Firefox can locate the downloaded file directly, but this still wastes some time. So to save time, can Firefox also introduce an option to delete a file after right-clicking on the downloaded file, just like Edge?

(New to the Firefox community, so please don't overly accuse me if I'm wrong)

Following the deprecation of the FTP protocol in Firefox I have, as a workaround, set Excel to open all ftp links in Firefox for me. However, ideally, I would like a custom PowerShell script to handle all ftp links for me in Firefox. But to do so you would have to pass arguments to an application (in this case PowerShell) in handlers.json file. I guess that is not possible, or am I wrong here?

Until I updated to 88.0 64 bit, when I right clicked on a page there was a link to View Page Info right next to the View Page Source link. Now it is gone. I can get the info page back by right clicking the padlock icon, clicking the arrow, then clicking more info but that is a real PITA. How do I get the link back on page right click. I am 100% sure that this was not done intentionally. That would be very silly and absurd to do.

I would like to be able to choose where Sync stores my information. Because it might contain sensitive personal information, people should want to have control over where exactly the data is stored. Right now it seems to be stored in some magical cloud service somewhere in the universe.

So for example, I might want to store it as a file on my GDrive, or as a digest in my Github account, or upload a file to my own server somehow.

For personal information storage, it is absolutely vital that it doesn't go to place where I don't want it to be, and a place that I have a reasonable level of control over.

So, million dollar question: how can I set this up?

Hi,

Even though I live in Czech Republic, I set up Firefox to use English. After reading some help here I had to reinstall it using different (EN) installer. That's a bit odd but OK, it worked them.

But when Firefox installed an update, it was again in CZ. :/

Thanks for fixing that.

I found out that menu with image items appeared not only on selected images but on web site's background image. I believe that in previous version of Firefox this menu did not appeared on background images. Moreover I saved a web page and opened it. Link to this background image could find on style.css file only. I checked list of files for saved web page and these images are not exist. Therefore if this web site will be shutdown I would not be able to open saved page properly. It is interested that when I click on saved web page items of this menu appeared. When I select background image to try to open in next Tab I get a message that this file is not exists off-line. Yes, file is not exists but but Firefox saved link to background image not an image itself.

Hi all,

I've been having this issue for a few days now, I've tried to uninstall, re-scan, reboot my pc and reinstall Firefox but they still PERSIST!! Every time I open firefox for the first time after turning on my pc, Avast pops up with the malware warnings. I've used Avast, Malwarebytes and AdwCleaner but nothing seems to be working. I've disabled and uninstalled the ad-ons as well.

I'm not sure how else to remove the malwares because it seems to be running from "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe".

Please help.
