I use the following crossword site:

https://thenewdaily.com.au/puzzles/quiz-crossword/

When I open it with Firefox, including the latest version, the "Help" icons are replaced by mathematical symbols. If I use Microsoft Edge, the Help icons are there.

Any feedback will be appreciated.

Cheers, "Sunbury Bob"

Cut and paste no longer works with Google Translate on linux

This problem has been around since the latest version of the old version, and has carried across into the new version. Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V no longer work with Google Translate on linux. I have tested in other browsers and it they all work fine. Firefox on Windows also works fine, this problem seems specific to linux.

When you press any of the Ctrl combinations it simply deselects everything and moves the cursor to the end of the text. Mouse works, but it's not practical if you are cutting and pasting all day long.

Site: https://translate.google.com Firefox version: 89.0.2 (64-bit) OS: Ubuntu 20.04

Google Translation is critical to my work so my current solution is I no longer use Firefox. I hope that someone knows of a quick fix, or if it's a bug it's easy to fix as I'd hate to permanently move away from Firefox for something like this.

Thanks!

Google hotel destination search result malfunctions with Firefox update (even in Troubleshooting mode)

Dear Community,

Something I use every day for work is the Google search for "hotels near Brooklyn, NY" (for example or any address in different cities), which I then choose the first photo map result.

And almost always, even while in troubleshooting safe mode), the map will always load (and expand and contract), but unfortunately the hotel description results on the left will not populate (even though it begins to populate - and then disappears. When it doesn't, I constantly have to reload the page to make it work. I haven't seen this problem in 5 years, and Google Chrome (which I hate using, but used to test against Firefox) has no problems loading the page each and every time (regardless of the address or city name I use). This began occurring within seconds of updating to the latest Firefox version. I suggest experimenting a few times so you can see the problem develop. You can also scroll to the bottom of the page and select page 2, to also see this lack of population.

On 6-2-2021 the Firefox /browser was automatically updated (errgh!). Now, my tabs are all gone and the History is empty. They were not merely recreational or random. Please help. Thank you in advance!

I think this happens routinely. Can the Mozilla people prevent the problem in the first place? How can I tell the angst they cause their users? I see others begging for help with this problem.

Hi all, I have downloaded the new firefox 89. I have always had the Google search text box selected for display on my Firefox page. However, I can no longer enter text into it, all text I enter is re-directed to the firefox URL search box. So what is the point of being able to specify a search engine display on the homepage and how can I change the operation back to what is used to be - and indeed SHOULD be. When you select a text box for input by placing your curser in the box, text should ALWAYS be directed to that cursor position otherwise you have complete mayhem!

Dear Firefox friends, I am using the up-to-date version of Firefox. How can I prevent the search to occur on the URL bar? I want to use the URL bar only for typing the URL addresses but not for search or googling. It is annoying function and if I want to do so I will use Chrome. Thank you for your kind help and advice.

Hello.

I got a little problem with firefox starting with somewhat broken window layout on my Ubuntu 20.04 desktop with KDE desktop environment. Tried to google for it unsuccessfully, so here I am. Whenever I start firefox after cold boot or a full reboot, it runs like on a screenshot. The workaround for fixing that is to resize window and then make it maximized again. I am not quite sure, is it a problem of browser, video driver, or desktop environment, but it occurs for me only on firefox.

  • Appeared several versions ago, present on current version I use: 89.0.2 (64-bit)
  • Does not appear when i load windows 10 on this PC.
  • Video card: Nvidia 1660S driver ver.460

Does anyone heard of that problem? Would be glad to know any details to address this problem.
