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.

The ability to edit and customize the headers and footers for printing was one of my main reasons for switching from Chrome to Firefox. Now I can't find where to do this. I don't know if it was a recent update or what but I am using Windows 10 Home. Please help so I don't have to find a new browser.

My default pdf application is Kofax Power PDF 3.1. Windows 10 Pro. I have used a particular fillable form online for years and downloaded and printed to pdf all day with no problems.

When I download the form after completing it online, certain text fields (month name, county, etc.) are changed to numerals during download. For example, the form requires a date that is entered as ______ (day of the month) ______ (month name spelled out, selected from drop down menu), ____ (year), etc.. The form online shows "February" in the month field, but after the form is downloaded, it shows up as "02".

When I print to pdf, the application crashes w no error message when I attempt to open the pdf.

Sowas kompliziertes wie Firefox support habe ich in meinem leben noch nie gesehen. Es wird zeit sich von Firefox zu trennen. Ich musste mich jetzt anmelden um überhaupt hier etwas zu schreiben. Ob ich eine Antwort bekomme steht auf ein anderes blatt papier. IHR SEID SCHEIßE!!!!! Wenn mein gesamter PC noch mal wegen FirefoxUpdate runterfährt, schmeiß ich alle Mozilla produkte von meinem PC runter und nutze Microsoft Edge oder Chrome. Jetzt reichts. Euer SCHEIß Update könnt ihr euch selber verpassen. Jedes mal gehen meine ARbeiten verloren, weil Firefox sich oberste Prioritäten setzt den PC runter zu fahren. Das kann's nicht sein. Und um kontakt aufzunehmen mußte ich 30 klicks machen. Ich werde euch nicht mehr weiter empfehlen. Ich habe 8 PC's in meinem Haushalt und alle das selbe problem.

In MacOS Big Sur 11.1 on my MacBook, I have set MacOS to automatically switch between Light Mode and Dark Mode. But I notice that Firefox does not handle this well. When I have used my MacBook Dark Mode and switch back to Light Mode, Firefox still hangs in Dark Mode. The only way to solve this is to choose Light Mode in System Preferences instead of automatic.

This is less of a question than it is negative feedback.

The new print experience allows me to enter a page scale, but it removed the previous ability to pick a page scale from a drop-down. It also closes as soon as the print is compete, retaining the manually entered scale.

Here's my old process: Load the page that needs 70% scale. Set the scale from drop-down. Print. Return the scale to 100% from drop-down. Close. The next page does not require any special attention, it will print from a single button push.

New process: Load the page that needs 70% scale. Open "more settings." Remove hands from mouse to type in 70. Print. Next page now requires undoing the first. Open page that needs 100% scale, open "more settings", remove hands from mouse to type in 100. Print.

The old process took 3 extra clicks. The new process takes 6 extra clicks plus moving hands to the keyboard. Talk about a "first world problem!" Nevertheless, there was no need to take something that was working well and make it less functional.

My laptop location in Firefox is using my former home location. But when I do the same Weather Google Search or Google Map website in Chrome, the location is my current location in North Carolina. This true whether I'm logged into my Google account or not Signed in to my Google account.

In Firefox I've checked Tools/Options/Privacy & Security/Permissions/Location/Settings. It lists 3 sites that have asked for access to my Locations: google, home depot and BedBathBeyond. Yet when I use Google to search "weather", it gives me Wayne NJ. This section will not let me add Google Maps.

In Security I changed Block Pop-ups to continue to have a checkmark but added google.com and maps.google.com as exceptions and restarted Firefox. Google Maps still shows Wayne NJ and weather sometimes shows North Carolina but mostly shows Wayne NJ

Are there any other settings in Firefox I need to update? Or are there settings in Windows I need to update.? I'm using Windows 10 and Firefox 85.0

My firefox browser was running slow, kicked to firefox refresh and when it came back all my saved Onetab bookmarks were gone, including the ones I saved before doing the refresh. Tried integrating the "old firefox data" folder back into the browser info, which seemed to be the way to go based on previous forum answers. That said the fix is unclear and doesn't seem to be working based on previously listed answers. Also, I'm on a Mac (Big Sur 11.2 - just updated OS), the other answers were Windows.. Need some help here please, cause it's kinda insane to have saved all the tabs then firefox just deletes them! Thanks!

Good day,

Everytime, since a few weeks, when I start a new session I have to accept cookies again with many websites. e.g. Google or De Telegraaf. Normally with the Telegraaf I have to log in just once, but since a few weeks I have to log in every time. In firefox settings I have "remember history" on.
