Hello, I have the problem that when filling out "email" in a form on a website everytime I write the @-sign everything written in front of it get's deleted. I found out that when I press the "Alt-Gr"-key the word I wrote get's marked and of course then the @ deletes the marked word. How can I keep "Alt-Gr" from marking the active word? :-) Also the same word marking happens when pressing the "Alt"-key. The same happens in Thunderbird when trying to write a new email. I'm working with Ubuntu, but I doubt it has to do with Ubuntu, because when filling out a form in Opera it works just fine. Any help appreciated! Cheers! Formicula

In my last version of FF, my Mac was able to speak selected text in FF. Speaking text works in all other applications, but not in my updated FF 80.0.1. Although... if I select text on a FF page to speak, I can only hear the spoken FF text when I click over to another open application. When I click back to the FF page, speaking the text stops. If I click back to the other app like TextEdit... then my Apple Speech continues to read the text selected on the FF page. The only way to hear any selected text on a FF page, is to select the text, use my Apple speech command button and then click over to another open application, until the spoken text in FF is finished speaking. This is not convenient. This issue only started with FF 80.0.1.

How can this be fixed, so my Mac's speech commend will read selected text on a FF page? I use Apple Speech command to read back my longer posts I’m getting ready to post on a webpage to make sure it makes sense.

In short... I can no longer use Apple's speech command to read selected text on a FF 80.0.1 page. This only started happening in this new 80.0.1 Firefox.

Spell check has long been a problem for me. It sometimes works, but most of the time it is not working, or is delayed by several minutes. The option to do spell checking is on. And the fact that it sometimes works indicates that the dictionary is present. This problems has been present for several releases. I am currently on 80.0.1

I know that before computers were common, a typist really strove to be accurate. But now you go for speed, and not accuracy at all. So, my messages tend to have a lot of errors. I cringe when I think of how many messages I typed before I realized that spell check was only occasionally working.

My work-around is to type what I need into my word processor, and then copy/paste into the web site where I want the text.

Printing Problems with Firefox

I have a new HP printer and I am using Firefox from a Windows 10 PC. I am plagued with Paper Mismatch errors when printing emails from Firefox. After a lot of trouble shooting, I have found that this problem seems to be confined to Firefox, as it does not happen when using other browsers, e.g. MS Edge. I have tried resetting all Firefox printer settings and the problem still happens when opening Firefox in Safe Mode.

The print job stops with the error message Paper Size Mismatch after the 1st page, and printing will not continue or even move on to the next job until the error is cancelled from the printer's control panel. This means I have to be working next to the printer and cannot print remotely.

In the printing dialogue box under Printing Preferences, the paper size shows Letter, whereas I am using A4 in the printer, and this is the mismatch causing the problem. I can change the paper size in Printing Preferences from Letter to A4, but I have to do this for every job seperately as the paper size setting always reverts to Letter. This is totally impracticable.

Regretably, I will have to stop using Firefox unless there is a solution. Can anyone help me to change the paper size setting to always default to A4, please? Thanks in anticipation.

I was researching http://vip.com a Chinese Online Retailer. Being that the Website is designed for the Chinese shopper, I wanted it translated, I used both Google and IPVoid, both directed me to the attached Firefox page which makes sense but how do I override?


Firefox Can’t Open This Page To protect your security, www.vip.com will not allow Firefox to display the page if another site has embedded it. To see this page, you need to open it in a new window.

I re-installed Firefox to begin using it as my main Web Browser and the icon in the taskbar is a white sheet of paper and I'd like the Fox icon. It took me a while to configure Firefox with all my imported bookmarks, etc. so I'd like to find a fix without deleting and re-installing the software. Was thinking/hoping the icon could be copied/placed in the root directory of the software?

When I'm using FF on my Mac, Catalina OS, and click on telephone numbers in websites, they always open up Skype, which I don't want them to do.

Instead, I want them to take me to Facetime and dial the number there.

Is there some configuration in my Preferences or an add-on that is causing phone numbers to open Skype instead of Facetime?

What can I do to get it open Facetime and dial there instead of Skype?

When I use the Firefox v80.0.1 browser and enter a file: URL (i.e. "file:///X:/Path" ), the folder icons are missing from the sub-folders (subdirectories). All other icons appear to be present. The folder icons were present in past releases, so it appears to be this release. Is anyone else experiencing this?

I refreshed Firefox, now Lastpass and Ghostery don't show up in my toolbar or work anymore (Mac OS 10.9.5). I removed the Lastpass extension, then reinstalled to no avail. Oddly, Adblock Plus is in my toolbar and works fine. Attached photo shows Adblock, but no Lastpass or Ghostery icons in my toolbar.

I have a laser printer set as default on a Windows 10 laptop. In Mozilla, when I select print, that laser printer has the green default check, but Mozilla defaults to Microsoft Print to PDF instead. How can I get Mozilla to accept the default printer without deleting Print to PDF which I do sometimes use but don't want as default? Image attached--it auto-checks PDF but you can see the laser listed above it is the default.

Starting this morning I'm getting a weird error message when I try to share articles from things like Daily KOS from my email. This is the message: "App Not Setup: This app is still in development mode, and you don't have access to it. Switch to a registered test user or ask an app admin for permissions."

  I have no idea what that means and I don't see any references to it in the community answers. Suggestions?

Thanks.

Take a look at the attachment, and you'll see a ? charactrer in the place of an " character. I see this happening with many different websites, but only in Firefox for some reason. Often times, firefox shows an entire block of text replaced with question marks, and then it snaps back with maybe just a few showing. I run Apple 10.15.6 Catalina. This may be a system issue on my end, but I was wondering if anyone has any clue as to why it does this, and how to correct it. Don't have this issue with any other browsers, and my firefoz is up to date, running 81.0 I think. Says it is up to date.
