Hi Guys and Girls,

For the love of all that is keeping me alive at the moment please help solving the issue of spell checker not working.

I have a new MacBook Pro and setup Firfox by installing it and siging in to sync.

The spell checker does not underline the words as I type here or in Google or WhatsApp Web.

Also when I right click no language opion appears.

I does work in Gmail for some weird reason.

After follwing a suggestion of installing an add-on dictionary and resarting Firefox, no change came about.

See attached for more...

Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't even know where to begin, or how to describe what is happening in Firefox - I tried updating just now, didn't help.

Please take a look at the screenshots - I am trying to work in Google Analytics, but it's awkward and difficult because the system keeps inserting these random, overlapping text fields...

Thanks for the help.

I click control+F but this function does not work on all sites and can't find matches even though I'm sure that word is on the site, so I have to switch over to Google chrome to use this function instead. Am I doing something wrong? It works sporadically. I took a screenshot of it working and not working. I try the exact same website in chrome and it allows me to search.

I'm not normally a Firefox user, but need to use it for a particular resource. I'm used to having at least 2 windows open, one for reading documents/emails and another for pasting articles, etc. into an email. I found the Firefox icons for copying & pasting, but when I copy material from one window -- in this case, a PDF document--, I'm unable to paste it into an email in another window. What do I do?

So, right now, I am using another web browser and that is because when I use Firefox, it checks for updates way too often. Every five or ten minutes it checks for updates and SLOWS my internet down. Is there a way to change this frequency? I do not want it to stop or anything, but why every 5 or 10 minutes does it have to check for updates? The older versions of Firefox, you could change the frequency and such of this. This made the web browser usable for me because I am on a slower connection.

As I read my local Newspaper, the text jumps up and down as adds change, making it impossible to read. It doesn't happen with Chrome. Several sites say that Firefox now offers "Scroll Anchoring" to fix this, but Firefox Help doesn't list any such feature.

I am upgrading my PC from W7 Home Premium to W10 soon. I understand this will result in a complete reimage of the PC and all existing files will have to be restored. I currently use a Seagate external hard drive as a system backup. Can the W7 "backup" Firefox file on the Seagate be used to restore my existing bookmarks to the new W10 Firefox download? If so, how do I do this?

Hi,

I have been using Firefox as my default browser for a long time now. But recently I am facing issues with the browser. The browsers keeps om crashing in every 10-15 min. At first, individual tabs were crashing but suddenly after that the browser started crashing which in turn resulted in my system shut down. I have checked both the browser and windows, they are updated to the recent version.
