Have To Click Bookmark Twice Before Firefox Opens Page

I notice that since upgrading to version 79.0, I have to click a bookmark twice before Firefox will start navigating to the page.

This occurs for bookmarks, homepage Top Site shortcuts, or even if I type a URL into the address bar and press enter.

The first time I click or press enter, Firefox does nothing. I either have to click again or press enter again. After the second time, Firefox navigates to the page.

It's almost as if the first click is being ignored.

This seems to only occur after the browser is first opened. I can repeat the behavior by closing the browser and then re-opening it.

This was not a problem with the previous version. Only since 79.0.

Since the new update was released I have been unable to figure out how to have the 'Open with Firefox' option for PDFs display the URL for the website and not my computer's program files.

I link a number of PDFs for my work and currently need to switch to Chrome to obtain the correct link, which is unnecessary and time consuming, prompt help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi. I don't know what it is but for whatever reason from time to time (probably caused by updates) all but one of my added wikipedia search engines (searching different languages) get deleted. Is there a way to tell Firefox not to do this? Or, when there's none, could anybody please change this? Now? I've dealt with this for years and it annoyed me to no end and today's the day I'm gonna change something about it.

With many websites I am experiencing overwritten text on page to the point that often it is not possible to read what is there or click accordingly - see sample image below. Already reduced security level to 'basic', but that does not solve problem. Is it just a setting? On Chrome all these websites work fine but I still prefer to use Firefox.

Windows 10 x64

Help appreciated.

Firefox fails to open up a PayPal "popup" window-let when trying to make a purchase from Steam

Hi Forum Folke,

Trying to make a purchase from Steam; click, click, click, get to the payment page, where I select "PayPal" as the method of payment. Get another screen that confirms proceed with PayPal; I click on "OK," and nothing happens. What's *supposed* to happen is a little popup window should open up with the PayPal login, I log in, wade through the selections, and make the payment. What *actually* happens is nothing at all. Click on "OK," and there's this "blink" and that's it. No other change to the page I'm looking at, no PayPal, no nothing... and if I persist in trying, Steam gets all uppity and tells me I've been trying to make too many purchases, try again later. Chrome handles the above scenario without any problem whatever, so the problem is not with Steam, it's with FireFox. Where should I be looking or what should I be looking for that might be preventing FireFox from doing what it should be doing? Thanks... I'm not sure what system info you need to diagnose this issue; if you'll let me know I'll be happy to dig it up and provide it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I can rule out my anti-virus, as again, it lets Chrome do it without problem... just not Firefox. For what that's worth....

Hello,

Firefox is experiencing constant crashes and making my computer fan work hard.

I have a lot of windows and tabs open. My computer has a 2TB SSD and 64GB of memory.

I just got the Firestick, mainly because it allows you to use a web browser (as opposed to Roku). Apps display fine. But Firefox is so big that I only see the middle of the window. I can't even get to the "hamburger" section, nor the top bar to see if it's running in maximized. I'm assuming it's running as an app, though, because I do have the option to request a desktop site (same problem with that.)

Is there some setting that I'm missing? I've seen the stuff about holding down the menu key and hitting the rewind button, but that does nothing. And, when I hold down the menu key, I see the various options (such as installing tabs), but nothing about shrinking the screen size.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

Question, My security preferences says my settings are controlled by my organization. This is a personal win 10 installation. Also third party cookies are re-enabled every time I run firefox according to a spybot scan. My linux installations seem to give me full control without the controlled by organization message. I'm guessing it has something to do with microsoft. I have reinstalled firefox twice without syncing to my account with the same result. Just wondering if you have seen this before. Thank you!!
