Hi! More than a month ago, I realised that my firefox nightly version is few months old. It couldn't update itself, everytime I tried to use update function, after restarting browser it didn't udpate and it didn't even restart, just close itself. So I downloaded latest version from mozilla site to update. But now I remembered that moment and checked what version I have. Guess what, it's that version I downloaded back then. And I can't update it still. I don't know what the error is, but I know what it's connected to it. Every time I open firefox I have to open it double. First opening does literally nothing, and I have to open it 2nd time to open it.

The former versions of Reader View looked pretty much like normal documents - without all the superfluous clutter that an original webpage article might contain. So, it could easily be printed OR copy/pasted into a new Word document, and then printed. However, in the new Reader View (v. 87 - 88), most of the photographs are retained. In fact, they are often duplicated, i.e., instead of having one head shot of the subject of an article, there will be TWO identical ones - along with many of the other original photos (also duplicated). So, we now have a Reader View that contains twice the number of photos than the original webpage article did!!

The consequence? I have to "copy" blocks of text; paste them into a document; return to the webpage; dodge the photo(s); and go to the text for another copy/paste cycle. Spin, Repeat, etc. This is SO tedious, especially when the previous Reader View retained, at most, only one photo at the beginning, followed by nothing else but text. This allowed for fast and easy printing or saving. Alas, this is no longer possible (and I have expanded/modified Print Preview as much as possible and followed every other "temporary" tweak suggested in the Support Community!)

Lastly, on v. 88, I still cannot see the former "Simplify Page" (which, if memory serves, did not do as thorough a job of minimizing a webpage.) For what it's worth, is there any way the previous version of Reader View can be resurrected, preferably with NO photos, on a permanent basis?? Thanks very much.

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?

When I pushed the right button of the mouse to choose the shortcut of "copy link", its shortcut changed from"A" to "L". I do not know why and when this change happened. It was "A" 3 hours ago.

As I use the left hand to push the keyboard and the right hand to move the mouse, it is very inconvenient. I appreciate it if you tell me how to change the setting.

Problem was fixed upon fresh start /or resetting cookies and cache but both are annoying each time as I have to relog into everything each time this error happens.

Hello, I use 2 monitors if one of them has a live stream from Facebook then there are such flashes on the primary monitor while browsing. But only if Firefox is open on the primary monitor. Here is a video of the flickering: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AOsjhbInuQQ I had a system reinstall due to an SSD replacement, but the error persists. This error has occurred since the Windows 10 Pro 20H2 update. I have an RTX2070 card with the latest gpu driver.

Thanks for the help!

I found when pressing Alt+Enter in the address bar, the link will open in a new tab, which is nice. But if I press Alt+click a link in the page, the link does not open in a new tab (while Shift+click can open in a new window as expected). I'm not sure if it's a problem, but I hope Firefox can have this feature so that opening a link in a new tab can be more convenient.

Besides, in some browsers, drag a link to a nearby place will open in a new tab. However, in Firefox, this manner does not work, unless I drag a link to the tabs bar.
