Please continue here: [/questions/1391580]
Hi, The spacebar does not produce a space between words, when typing text. I'm using an iMac on macOS Monterey (V 12.6), and a Mac Magic Keyboard. Tapping the spacebar also causes the entire window I'm writing in to expand and contract in size. This happens when typing emails also. What do you recommend?

Here is how to completely remove the latest, unasked for forced on us utter crap in this pathetic Firefox-view.

In a new tab click about:config

Accept the risks

In the serch bar type firefox-view

Double click where itsays firefox-view true to change it to false

Close

There you go the lataest crap from Firefox is now completely removed from your browser.

Here utter clowns at Firefox if I want to jnow what tabs I have just closed I will just click on "history"!

Everytime you add a new feature to Firefox I have removed it. Pockets removed. Full page capture removed (I will stick to useing snipping tool) now this removed.

Why can't you just leave things well enough alone. You have the best browser going but you seem hell bent on utterly destroying it. It is no wonder more people use Chrome it is so they do not have to put up with the crap you force on us.

Please continue here: [/questions/1395545]
The directions show a picture that shows the Done button having a split section with a drop down menu. I don't have that. It does go to a pop up with options, but when I try to hit print, it asks me to sign in. What am I signing in to? I think I am already signed in to firefox, so why doesn't it know that. But it's suggesting gmail, and others, and saying it's for a free trial. I thought ff was providing this through their browser, why is it talking about a free trial? What is it a free trial of? Why am I going to google?

How does Firefox and AWS S3 initiate an upload after a form post to S3

I'm trying to understand how AWS pulls a file from a client device after I post an upload request to AWS S3. HTML is asynchronous and I can't figure out how, after I post the file name and such, an upload is started.

I’m uploading images from a user’s device to a S3 bucket using a HTML form. Everything is working fine but I don’t understand how the S3 server can initiate an upload from a client browser after the form data (file name, signature, policy, etc.) has been posted to its URL. The image data is in a file on the client device and is not contained in the form, only the file name is there. Where in the process is the upload started and how does the S3 server tell the client browser to upload the image data?

Perhaps there’s more communication between the web server and browser during a post/response that I’m not aware of. Perhaps AWS and Firefox have a WebSocket open to perform the file upload?

Any insight would be appreciated.

I have a Bookmarklet that draws a red border on all elements in the web page.

` (function(){

   var e = document.querySelectorAll('*');
   var el = e.length;
   for (let i = 0; i < el; i++) {
           setTimeout(() => {
               e[i].style.border="1px solid red";
           }, 100);
   }

})(); `

This works fine on Chromium-based browser, but when I run this in Firefox it starts drawing borders and then all of the sudden a number gets written on the page. Everything is gone and a number appears.

I don't know why this happens, every other Bookmarklet works fine. It might be the script I wrote but I doubt it because it works completely okay on Chrome.

Running this snippet directly inside the console works fine.

Several months ago, I was not able to access my contacts or calendar. In other words, no response when trying to click on any of those icons. However, I tried a different browser such as Edge and everything worked fine. So.....am I going to have to change my default browser. It kinda looks like I will use Edge from now on. Any thoughts........ Use Yahoo mail.

When I opened Firefox I received a "news message" that makes no sense to me. How can I revert Firefox to its former usefulness? There is something about the former installation of Firefox being undisturbed, but I cannot find that installation. Apparently this has something to do with sync-ing my desktop Firefox with other installations -- I've less than zero interest in sync-ing.

What happened to the bookmarks I had stored in the bookmark bar? How do I get those back?
