Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

Hi,

I love the Collections feature of Firefox for Android and it makes so much more sense then bookmarks. Why I can't sync it to Firefox for Desktop (Mac in my case)? Or why I can't use collections on Firefox for Desktop? Would be another feature which Chrome and Co. doesn't have but makes the life much more easier.

In the Find box, sometimes the search skips over my word of interest before I fully type in the word.

I would like to search the old fashioned way in the Find box. Let me completely type my search word and hit Enter before the search commences.


Is this possible?


I do not have the "Search as You Type" option turned on, which really does not apply to the Find box.

Please explain why my Yahoo Toolbar disappeared after the latest Firefox update-All I am told is "it is incompatible." This is not acceptable-I use Yahoo Toolbar to navigate the websites I check on everyday. I certainly do not want to go back to I.E. for my browsing needs but what choice do I have if I can't use Yahoo Toolbar w/ my Firefox browser?

When I downloaded version 5.0 I can no longer find how to get to my homepage of yahoo.com. Where did it go. Once had a little house icon, then when upgraded it become a "Y" icon. Now can't even find that. How do I get from my mail page to the home page? Very frustrating.

I have repeatedly tried VIEW to get my two most important toolbars to come back. My Bookmarks bar is gone and so is my URL bar, so I can't copy URLs or type in known addresses. Updating to Foxfire 5 didn't help.
