Which settings in about:config can I tweak to fix this?

I have created an HTML file in notepad to run a clickable calendar for our library website. This is an html table with the background set as an image of our calendar with anchors in the cells linking to our events placed across the table. When you click on an event, it links to the webpage on our site that corresponds to that event. This works flawlessly on Chrome and Edge, but will not work on Firefox. The image loads, but when you hover over the calendar, none of the links are detected (the pointer does not change, the link does not appear in the bottom left corner, it just appears like a static image) and when you click on the titles of the events, nothing happens. However, when I inspect element and hover over my code, It shows the buttons are there (see images.) Any idea what is happening?

I'm creating a print stylesheet, and trying to use break-after: avoid to keep headings on the same page as the following paragraph, but it doesn't seem to work.

To investigate, I created a simple page with an

in between a number of paragraphs to that the <h2> printed as the last item on the page. I then added the following styles. @media print { h2 { break-after: avoid; } } I expected the heading to move to the next page, but nothing happened. So then I added the following: CSS: @supports (break-after: avoid) { .message { display: block; } } HTML:

break-after: avoid is supported.

When I refreshed the page, the message appeared. So is break-after supported or not, or is it not supported for paged media? Or if it is supported, what am I doing wrong? MDN suggests it's been supported since Firefox 65, but maybe I'm misunderstanding the compatibility table.

Thanks in anticipation. If this is the wrong forum to ask this question, perhaps somebody could direct me to the correct one.

Why is it that Mozilla and Firefox are now promoting censorship? It seems to go against all that Mozilla Firefox (used to) stand for. Freedom is how we grow. Censorship promotes false vision of the world and cripples discernment, cognition, critical thinking and healthy growth. Censorship us thought control, which should be up to each individual. You know, the ideals of the internet?

 Mozilla/Firefox is now pressuring Facebook to censor more, not less. Mozilla is now pressuring YouTube to censor more, not less. What happened? How can I fix it? Was Mozilla hacked?
 Mozilla used to be a coordination of volunteers around the world helping each other. What happened!?!?!?
Is Mozilla getting funding from a big foundation now or something?  (Who writes the checks makes the rules)

With Firefox 81 on Mac, the browser window only displays one-fourth of the screen when running a Flash-based web application. This did not happen with previous versions of Firefox.

When reverting back to the Extended Support Version of Firefox, this issue is not happening:

https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/enterprise/#download

So there is a workaround but we're supporting hundreds of clients that are using Firefox 81 on a Mac, so we need to figure out a solution without needing a workaround. Can anybody provide any insight into a solution?

Thank you in advance!

My Firefox account has only one email address. I want to change it. When I access the "Change Primnary Email Address on Firefox Accounts" I'm advised I need to have a secondary email address. I don't have one. The process then says I have to add one. When I go to add an address it directs me to the Firefox Icon in upper right where I'm supposed to get a drop down menu that will do the addition. When I access the icon, I get a SYNC option and nothing else. Would someone be able to help me out please.
