I am having the exact same problem listed here:

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1224880

But none of the solutions there work.

Of course since I did not already have an account here, I was forced to create this duplicate question.

I was using Firefox fine all day, then suddenly Copy/Paste stopped working. Inside Firefox, the option for Copy still appears and can be selected, but when you Paste within Firefox or anywhere else on the system, things copied in Firefox are not available. Copying outside of Firefox works just fine. Using Firefox 62.0 (64-bit) on macOS 10.12.6

Update: And as soon as I posted this, now Copy/Paste is working, but only within Firefox; Firefox is now acting as if it has its own independent clipboard, accessible only within Firefox. This is happening everywhere within Firefox, regardless of website.

I went to download YTD Downloader @ https://www.ytddownloader.com/ , which I've done a dozen times before and the screen looks like a dark tinted car window. What's with that? Here's a screen print copy. Can somebody help?? ( AND attaching the image has taken 5 minutes thus far. I may have to try & submit it without. Failing that, I'd leave the page - un-submitted. And I don't see a mb size limit or a cancel in order to use a smaller copy - FYI)

When I click on items with a site/page opened within FireFox, I often get a new tab opening that is a spam tab. This isn't happening within my other browser (Safari), so it seems to be a bug within my FireFox. I tried trashing Firefox and reinstalling, but it still happens.

There is a web page on my visited log I can not get rid of. Deleting the history causes the web page to be access again, dismissing it also brings it right back. I can verify with wireshark that the access is being triggered by deleting the history (clicking "Delete History" for that web page causes a flurry of internet activity on the ipaddress of the page in question).

I tried to uninstall and do a fresh reinstall (check mark for removing old plugins and such checked), but the old web pages still show up on the fresh reinstall.

Short of reformatting my hard drive and starting from scratch, or giving up and going to Chrome, how can I get a clean install?

Thanks, bt

Login for Gmail long-in NEXT button no longer responsive after installing latest Firefox 62. I usually have gmail account set to always be logged in. I signed out then attempted to sign back in. I typed in my username and click NEXT but this button is NOT responding anymore. So now I can't log into gmail with Firefox 62 on iMac.

I tried to open a “private” window in Firefox (first time using this) and the NEXT button in Gmail works and allows me to log in (I can see the indicator scroll and everything functions) , but in standard browser this button is unresponsive. I tried changing tracking, pop ups, added exceptions to gmail …. nothing fixes the issue. I cleared all my cookies, clear cache (now I have to re-authorize or re-validate my computer for all my banking & credit card access for payments, and everything, etc … big pain in the ass … thanks Firefox) . Why does NEXT button (or these controls) only work in private window but not in standard ?????? I also noticed recently that some other sites have had dome buttons that aren’t recognized after clicking.

iMac with Sierra 10.12.6 32gb ram, worked perfectly until I logged out and needed to log back in.
