First of all, let me just say that I love Firefox and refuse to use any other browsers

In my profession, I need to use Adobe products - somehow, the new Adobe Express (beta) will not run on Firefox browser, it run with no problems on Microsoft Edge and Chrome.

Do you have any idea what might have cause this issue? I understand that Adobe Express (beta) will go live soon, and it will be terrible that I couldn't continue on Firefox browser, I wonder if you can have Firefox developers take a look and maybe figure out with Adobe?

Thanks for listening and hope that you'll find a solution

I see this issue posted in other questions but none of the solutions given works. For one, the click on items you talk about don't exist, like the "Firefox Options and/or Preference" is no where to be found, top left click on Firefox Icon or top right bars. The right click button does not work in your browser at all. I don't have this issue on my work computer or my work laptop and they are running the same version, 1140.1. I am use to: Right clicking Firefox icon in tool bar and a menu coming up that allows for several choices. Right clicking in the top bar with page tabs and being able to put the bookmark menu bar up permanently (the main reason I use Firefox, ease of accessing bookmarks which Chrome and IE make ridiculously difficult}. How do I get functionality of my right click back?

About 2 or 3 updates ago...after the update I can not clear all my web browsing history. I have my homepage set to Firefox's " about:preferences#privacy " I usually clear all the ' stored cookies, site data ' through the " Clear Data' button. Have it set to clear ALL data. Also clear " History " data and too ALL data.

Then I use " CCleaner " to clear any data that might have been left on my PC. 
It/CCleaner too has settings to clean Firefox's Cache, history, cookies, download history, session and more which use to work very well on clearing all data of web browsing.   That doesn't do it anymore. 
 After all the effort I go through after closing Firefox to delete/eliminate all my browsing history... through the manual tic-buttons IN Firefox... AND with the settings to clear cookies, site data and history upon closing.  PLUS using CCleaner.  
I ALSO close down/disable my 'Wireless Network' modem EVERY TIME I close Firefox  because I've had programs... AV program... that had stupid-non-disabling auto update that would connect... on it's own... to the net and not only check for it's update but downloads updates on every program update-able.
 But with all the work and precautions....
NOW when I click on Firefox to start a whole new session... remember all the moves I take AFTER the last session... It/Firefox asks if I want to continue with my last session and shows the sites I was at the last time.
If there is anyway to get... MY PRIVACY BACK!!! ... I would LOVE to hear about it.
I would LOVE to have my "Firefox 2.0. " back where/when there were no problems.

I'm not sure about any of the following.

Is there a way to turn off the UI animations? I'm using Firefox for Ubuntu 114.0.1 (64-bit). I did a web search and some page said to open about:config and set toolkit.cosmeticAnimations.enabled to false, but when I try it it's not there. Maybe some people like these animations but I have autistic spectrum sensory sensitivities and the dots jiggling back and forth when a page is loading and the swoosh on the tab when it loads, among other things, are making me dizzy.

An issue I am running into is with the paste option on Microsoft Word. I am clicking on keep source formatting in Word when I paste text, but the format doesn't carry over from the website I am copying it from. This is a Firefox issue because the format carries over when I paste a website's text using Microsoft Edge. Hopefully someone can solve this issue for me. Thank you.

Hello, I have two websites that I've designed with cursive fonts in some headers. Whereas they display in other browsers, they do not display in Firefox. I asked this question years ago, and to date, no one has provided an answer.

Not only do the headers not display the cursive font: savoye let and allura, what they show are enlarged and bold letters that completely destroy the design. Surely, there is a reason for this.

Here is one of the sites (the other is still in design mode): https://summitlighthousephoenix.org

Right-Clicking a youtube video thumbnail displays different (page) menu options instead of Tab opening options

When I browse youtube I normally open videos in a new tab by right clicking on the thumbnail and selecting open in new tab - Menu is displayed with options specific to the LINK i just right-clicked on. i.e. "open link in new tab" , "open in new window" , "bookmark link", etc.

Now, when I right click on a youtube video thumbnail, a different menu appears, with options relating to the PAGE (itself)- i.e. "save page as..." , "save page to pocket", arrows to go to previous/next page, etc.

I tried to troubleshoot in safe mode but it's the same problem. This is on both my PC and Mac. What could the problem be? Appreciate your help!
