More and more websites are alerting me that they are not fully compatible with Firefox and that I should instead use Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge. Recent examples are Allstate Insurance and Hewlett-Packard, not exactly insignificant players in the business world.

Here's what Allstate had across their page when I was attempting to log in:

"You may not be able to use certain My Account features on your current browser. For the best experience, consider using the latest versions of Chrome, Safari or Microsoft Edge."

There have been other websites with similar messaging about Firefox. The issue seems to be growing. Is there a fix coming from Firefox or are we going to continue to lose compatibility?

In a new version of Firefox (new within a couple of weeks) behavior has changed. If I click on a html-file in my pathfinder, then it always opens in a new window. Very unpractical. Earlier it opended in a new tab - in case of several browser-windows open it opened as a new tab in the window last touched. I suggest you set that back in a coming version. Can I - meanwhile - change it myself?

All the info on your support page shows there are solutions, but access to those solutions are not possible. Solutions online are years old and of no help.

I am looking for a way to enable Firefox to copy and paste PNG images with transparency. Right now, copy/pasting a transparent image replaces the transparent areas with solid black. This feature works as expected in all other mainstream browsers (it's something I use a lot in my workflow as a graphic designer for a website).

This bug has existed for a while, I'm hoping by now there is at least one extension that fixes it, or some kind of workaround. Thanks to anyone who can help.
