Hello.

I'm experiencing some strangeness with the spellcheck on Firefox and would like to know if anyone can help.

I often seem to mistype "don't" as "don;t." Same with "won't." Firefox does not mark these as incorrect. But if I type "shouldn;t" or "couldn;t" I get a red underline.

Is there something I can edit to get those words with a semicolon to be marked as misspelled?

I'm using FF 91 on Win 7. But it's been this way for a long time, many different versions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

So for the most part I rather like update 89. It looks snappy. One annoying issue I'm currently having is that Firefox will no longer open maximized on start up. I click the shortcut and it opens in a little window on the left side of my screen. I click the maximize button and instead of maximizing to full screen it moves the little window onto the right side of my screen. Clicking maximize a second time finally gets the browser to open full size. Why is it doing this and how do I make it stop? Never did this before 89, now all of a sudden it does it. I'd like for the browser to open fill size instead of clicking multiple times before it finally decides to do so. Thanks.

Yes, you read it right. I want to submit a feedback about the Firefox browser and it looks like it is not possible.

When I go to the menu Help -> Submit Feedback option, it redirects me ti this site https://mozilla.crowdicity.com/ where you cannot submit any feedback, you can only submit ideas.

What the hell?

Why is there now a message at the top of the page saying that my browser is now managed by my organization? I am the organization, so to speak. I am a one woman show and have no idea where that information came from. I have put on weight during the pandemic but still don't think I can be mistaken for an organization!

I would appreciate your help.

Thank you, Carol

Why do you fix things that ain't broke. You want to change things advise those that want change of necessary ACTIONS TO ACCEPT CHANGE. I've had to waste precious time getting to this screen to enter message. Screen real estate is a premium. Why blow it up with white space. Come on! Please return to previous screen formats.

It's been quite awhile since you've made unnecessary display format changes. Please return it to the way it was.

Suddenly my mouse cursor is erratic when I am using Google Maps through Firefox. The cursor is invisible and shows up erratically on the screen. Very hard to select anything on a map. This problem seems to have started out of the blue yesterday (September 10, 2021). I made no changes to anything that I am aware of. This problem does not happen on any other browser page, or any other application on my PC. Just Google maps through Firefox. I tried Google Chrome and the cursor worked fine.
