Tonight I noticed something really weird when I tried to reply to a comment on Youtube. Initially, I tried to reply from the bell button in the notifications and soon I realized that the Spacebar was not working. I thought it might be stuck, but it was not, since it was working fine in both the address bar and the search bar. Asynchronous keys function was disabled. Then, I went to the video and tried to reply from there. Guess what! The video was being resized using the shortcuts depending on what I was typing! For example "t" changes between normal and theater mode and "i" makes it picture-in-picture. What is going on? I am sure no key is locked, i even restarted my pc and the same thing kept happening. Then, I turned it off and on and the problem was persisting. Everything works fine on other applications, just YT seems broken for some reason. I tried to type on YouTube on two other browsers and everything worked fine. I don't think it has anything to do with the windows update, since it only happens on firefox, which I don't intend to change. Is there any setting to lock/toggle the Youtube shortcuts on and off? Sorry for the length of my description and thanks a lot in advance!

System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)

Hello, I was wondering what could be wrong there as when I put my mouse over the url there's no highlight, so it's really difficult to see what url I'm clicking on. It's doing this even on a fresh install of Firefox without any addons installed. Any ideas what could be doing this and/or what could be done to force a highlight again?

I'm currently using Firefox version 63 on Windows 10 OS & removed some of the extensions that I had added. Then, at a later time I tried adding the same extensions that I removed but they're not appearing at the top upper right of the browser as they used to be. I can't figure out how to get them back so that I can see & manage them i.e. Ghostery - Privacy Ad Blocker & Cookie AutoDelete. I am going to upload a couple screenshots so that you may know what I'm talking about & possibly help me out. Thank you.

Recently, whenever I try to save any downloaded file via SaveAs, the keyboard generates random characters when pressing the keys.

For example, I can press the "a" key ten times in a row and the filename could end up "a4vhg67hu1".

I have tried fully uninstalling and reinstalling the latest Firefox and NOT copying my profile back over. So, on a fresh install it still has the same filename issue with the keyboard.

Nowhere else on my system does this nonsense happen, only on Firefox.

I have Win 10 64-bit v1903

Thank you,

Bill

This is actually happening on other browsers as well. I've reinstalled, uninstalled & tried An older versions. Nothing seems to work, any suggestions?

Since the first Win10 update about a week ago (there have been two in quick succession), pages are sometimes missing individual portions of text or in the case of the Mozilla Help home page and others, almost all of the text.

Links appear to be there but are not visible (the cursor turns to an active cursor when passed over some parts of a page).

Win10 is now at 1903 for Win 64 Firefox is now at 68.0 for 64-bit

I had to use my phone to post this because I cannot post in the Community Support portion of Help.

I have been using a very old version of firefox on my desktop. Now I want to update it, but to somehow keep an installation of a pre-webextension version. IIRC two different installations can't live within the same Windows, so I'm looking for a portable installation of the old version. (Running a second instance of the same installation is no help).

The problem is that I already have an updated portable app on my usb stick. I am wondering, if I save an old, portable firefox (on a separate folder) on the same usb stick that already has a portable firefox installation, will it cause any trouble to either?

Hi - I wonder if anyone can shed some light on this issue I've been having with Android Firefox?

Whenever I press the 'menu' key on my phone while running FF (tried with 16 and beta/17), the application crashes immediately. I briefly see my Android homescreen, then the FF page asking me to submit a crash report to Mozilla. I've done this, of course, and one of the links is attached.

I'm a bit surprised that I have not been able to find any mention on the interwebs about this issue. Perhaps someone can let me know what's going on?
