I have been unsuccessful in finding a solution in searches, so posting here. On one website I use, a machining forum, when I want to reply to a post, I have no text edit options ie bold, italic, emojis, etc. They are there, but grayed. They have worked previously for me. I don't know what changed like a setting on my part or an upgrade. I currently run Firefox version 99.01. I asked on the forum and other users have the same version and no problems. I can access the page with Chrome and on my phone (Android) and no problem so it is not my account. And on other forums, I ie different websites, I can use those functions. I have removed history cache and cookies, restarted Firefox and restarted the laptop.

Any suggestions?

My problem is this:

If I click on the open new tab button, and then I keep my cursor there, such that I get the little tooltip "Open a new tab (Ctrl+T)..." , Firefox will stop the address bar from updating---it won't show my keyboard inputs, not will it search, or do anything else. This will resolve itself after I move my cursor away from the open new tab button and the tooltip stops showing, even my inputs will appear there.

This quite annoying, especially when opening a tab to search for something quickly...

When I go to download a ZIP file, it will always attempt to download the file directly rather than letting me open it with WinRAR. When I go into the browser settings I see that some other file types have options to choose how they're handled, but there's no entry for ZIP files. I've tried refreshing my Firefox install and yet the issue still persists.

I used to have this option before I reinstalled Windows a while back (where I kept my files but not programs). I don't know for sure that that's what caused this to start, but the timing would line up.

I have at least one extension that has had a later version than what I have for days and firefox is not updating it even though everything is set to auto-update. i hate to have to uninstall/reinstall it since I will lose all the settings I have in place. Any ideas?

The developer says firefox is just waaay behind on extension updates and it isn't their fault.

When I start to type a reply to a Facebook post, the page scrolls down so that the line I am typing disappears one line below the bottom of the screen. I have to scroll down to see what I'm typing. Also, it jumps down the same way whenever I hit the backspace key to edit what I'm typing.

I discovered a previous (archived) post on this forum that suggested using "about.config" and making sure that the value setting for browser.backspace_action is equal to 2. But that didn't change the annoying behavior. Is there any other value I should try? It's not clear what the number means.

Nor did setting browser.backspace to true (or to false) seem to help with the unwanted jumping upon use of the backspace key.

This only seems to happen with Facebook, but it's quite annoying.

This bug occurs very randomly, but it seems there have few things in common.

- Occurring on domain level, one domain at once. For example, if Youtube.com stuck, any sub address including each video page is not loaded. Other website and whole browser works fine. - Other program on same PC is not affected, too. - Which page is stop loading is completely random. It might be happen only on a popular, feature-rich site like amazon, google, but not sure. - The timing is also random. Maybe after waking PC up from sleep, but not sure. Frequency of occurrence is once every 1~5 days. - The workaround without restarting browser is 1.)switching to other container tabs(strangely), 2.)opening website on private window. Disabling all the addon manually didn't help.

Since it's randomness, I didn't have any logs about this issue.

When playing music on music.youtube.com, if I navigate away from the tab, by either moving to a different tab or opening a different application the music pauses. This happens consistently with two different Firefox profiles.

I admittedly have a quite a few plugins installed, so I tested this in a private window and this issue does not occur.

I attempted disabling the obvious plugins UBlock, 'I don't care about cookies', and Tampermonkey without any success. I also tried using a different user-agent without any success.

edit: removed erroneous error information
