Development: Very specific problem with getting the caret position in a contenteditable div

Hello, I'm a web developer. I'm using the Firefox Developer Edition and currently working on a project that requires caret manipulation. I have this function right here that fetches the caret's client rect: ``` function getCaretRect(): DOMRect | null {

 const sel = window.getSelection()
 if (!sel || sel.rangeCount === 0) return null
 const range = sel.getRangeAt(0)
 const rects = range.getClientRects()
 if (rects.length === 0) return null
 return rects[0]

} ``` Here is where the issue arises. Suppose I have a contenteditable div with two line breaks (no new lines), and the second line is smaller than the first one. If the caret is positioned somewhere that is further than the end of the second line, and I press the down arrow key, then left, for some reason the caret rect I get has all values set to zero, like this: `{ x: 0, y: 0, width: 0, height: 0, top: 0, right: 0, bottom: 0, left: 0 }` I will add an image to explain further.

I don't have this issue on Chromium based browsers, but cross browser support is important for me.

There is one more issue to do with caret manipulation which is how contenteditable divs are handled. On a Chromium based browser, if I have a parent div that's contenteditable, then another div that's not contenteditable (contenteditable="false" explicitly), then two children divs which are both contenteditable (or more), I can navigate through the divs freely using the arrow keys and focus is managed better alongside event handlers. This is not present on Firefox, however.

If this is not the right place to ask for help then please guide me where is more suitable.

Lately YouTube playing videos have been playing super fast or skipping straight to the end. I mean, they are horribly fast.

Things to know:

  • I am posting here because I can't determine whether browsers may have settings unique to them that I need to change. This also happens in Chrome, but not Edge.
  • I was recently forced to upgrade to Windows 11 - I can't say this issue happened exactly at that time, but fairly recently after the upgrade. I am running Windows 11 Pro.
  • This does NOT happen when playing in a private browser window, either Firefox or Chrome.
  • Having the Mozilla VPN on or off has no effect.
  • I am sure the playback speed is set to normal. I have tried changing the playback speed to anything but normal and then back to normal and the current video runs correctly UNTIL I play the next video.
  • This does not happen with Vimeo.
  • It does not happen in FF for Android.

Any questions, thoughts, or advice would be appreciated.

Hello Mozilla community,

I'm encountering a perplexing issue with Mozilla Firefox that I hope someone here can shed some light on. Whenever I set Mozilla Firefox as my default browser, I experience difficulties accessing my website. The site continuously buffers but never fully loads, leaving me unable to view its content.

However, when I switch to a different browser as my default, such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge, the website loads without any issues moreover my website is related to Picoworker which runs smoothly on other browsers (Screenshot is also attached). This leads me to believe that the problem might be specific to Mozilla Firefox.

I've tried troubleshooting by clearing the browser cache, disabling extensions, and even reinstalling Firefox, but the problem persists. I've also checked for any errors in the browser console, but nothing seems out of the ordinary.

Could there be any compatibility issues between my website and Mozilla Firefox that are causing this problem? Or is there something else I should investigate to resolve this issue?

Any insights or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for your assistance!

I'm a long-time Firefox user (I probably came here straight from Netscape!) but lately, I'm starting to see tons of issues, often after every update.

Things that might help: 1. I'm mostly a Windows user, although I have a Mac. I have a LOT of Windows boxes (don't ask) - a couple of work laptops, some private laptops, a couple of micro-desktops that are connected to TVs and so on. This might be relevant, because they're all synced.

2. My profile is pretty old - over 10 years.

3. I've entirely disabled any ad-blockers or add-ons.

So issues happening on multiple machines in the last 24 hours: eBay. Over the last few days, when logging into eBay, if I do a search, I can't change any of the filters along the top Condition, Location, Sort: Best Match etc. I can click on them, but nothing happens.

GoFundMe. I tried to donate tonight and when it toddled off to Paypal, it came up with some kind of Localhost error after I clicked on Submit. Did it on Chrome, and it worked perfectly. Fortunately, the money didn't come out multiple times.

Oracle E-business. I'm sure many of you use this at work. I genuinely can't login to this using Firefox unless I use a private window. I've cleared my ENTIRE cache. Even went into the Folder and manually cleared it all out. If I try and login without being in a private window, I get "Your session is no longer valid or your logon information could not be reestablished from your session."

This is all since the last update to 127.0

Hi,

am running firefox 127.0.1 on a windows 11 desktop. Numerous sites that use a captcha to login fail. In other words, the captcha never loads and I cannot login to those sites. Such sites include teamfaderpro, Coursera, and bandcamp. All logins fail as the captcha is required to be passed prior to logging in, but the captcha never appears and so when I try to log in, nothing happens and I cannot login.

I have tried the above same sites on the Edge browser and have no such issue, the captcha shows and I can login.

Just FYI, the agent switcher setting change recommended by others previously is not suitable. When I tried that fix I was unable to access a considerable percentage of the internet due to some cloudflare issue, so the agent switcher setting is not an option. So far, I have tried all recommended settings to fix this issue and nothing has worked.

I am surprised no one else is having this issue.

Any help is appreciated, or at least inform google/mozilla about this issue as it has been ongoing (on and off) for me for many months. And yes, this problem is persistent for me at the moment, it remains despite rebooting windows, despite clearing cookies and cache (which I have set to automatically delete when exiting firefox).

I am using Firefox version 126.0.1 (64-bit) on MacOS Ventura 13.0. I cannot interact with any Nature journal webpages (https://www.nature.com/ , https://www.nature.com/neuro/ , etc). I can only scroll, no clicking on links, highlighting or anything else you might expect. Not sure if this is specific to my computer/browser/extensions or if others are experiencing this and what steps I might take to resolve?

To whom it may concern, Hi, I haven't been able to access this website for a couple of weeks and have never had any problems opening it in the past. Have contacted the bus company and they do not have any issues at their end. This is the error message I still continue to receive and don't know how to correct:

Unable to connect An error occurred during a connection to www.premierillawarra.com.au. • The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. • If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer’s network connection. • If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the web.

Hope to hear from you soon

I using an ASIS Latop model X756U running the Windows 10 Operating System. Firefox is my default browser.

I installed the Opt-Out Google Analytics Extension on 9 June 2024. The intent was identify which of my applications are using Google Analytics by testing them and seeing which ones were broken.

Having done that I removed the Opt-Out Google Analytics Extension from the Firefox Extension list.

Unfortunately the extension remains active and continues to disrupt my browsing experience.

How do I remove this extension permanently?
