Settings Page Off-Click Attrition Pet Peeve

When I am in about:preferences#general, the Find in Settings box has it's active field set up right when access to this page is provided, when I off-click to the side of that box, it does nothing about the control field which is active, highlighting stuff can make that blinking stop and hold in a static state but only clicking other control areas can I get that active field to stop blinking in the Settings box, that forced active field is a pet peeve for me on account of it starting active when the page goes up but also because it has an invisible hitbox outside the visible one, and cannot be offclicked in a casual way, I want that not to be active when that page opens and I want the hitbox reduced to the visible one and I want an offclick in the rest of the white field to deactivate the active field in the Settings box.

I don't have the Use the address bar for search and navigation checked, though I do have the Add a search bar to toolbar enabled, when I am on the Firefox Homepage I have the Web Search turned on, when I try to type something in the homepage search, it automatically redirects the text to the address bar area which is where I want the address bar stuff, not the omnibus search that everyone explodes all over their pants over, so the search area is rendered useless.

Firefox 100 Overrides Disable of "Open previous windows and tabs"

I recently installed Firefox 100 on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (a major leap from previously installed Firefox 56).

No major squawks initially, everything was more or less as expected, but then I started to notice anomalies in the designation of visited vs. unvisited links, and possibly with clearing of history in general (see my previous question at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1376052, still unresolved).

I'm now convinced something is definitely wrong with history clearing and/or session restores. One glaring example: Firefox 100 is overriding my choice to uncheck the "Open previous windows and tabs" box in Settings/General. The box will reset to checked after I close/relaunch Firefox, and indeed I've seen it become reset to checked in the same session, without even closing the program!

Moreover, after clearing the history prior to exiting Firefox (Shift-Ctrl-Delete, all history and data boxes checked) and then restarting Firefox, the most recently visited website will often (but not always) be restored. Remarkably, when this happens and I go to Menu/History, it shows (or claims) that history is empty!

I have tried opening About:config and setting browser.sessionstore.resume_from_crash to false, it has no effect.

This is very peculiar and disturbing, thanks for any feedback/suggestions.

The included pic shows the red screen that comes up when I hold shift down when the mail composer is up, this is one of several like errors like a hover over text one and auto save one which crash the page nearly and require reloading of the page, another error is that the close, minimize and maximize buttons are missing when protonmail site tab is both active and maximized, not when minimized, then it is the same as the rest, support and I were not able to resolve this, I picked up some Java replacement extensions and whatnot and that did not work either.

I got mad at a website that wouldn't let me right click menu to save pictures, so I stubbornly saved them via less efficient means, in the process I picked up the Long Screenshot extension and this had an error shortly before or after I had an issue with Lightshot not appearing, other extensions did not appear either when I added them during this time period, but now these all appear with the exception of Lightshot, which gets deleted and reinstalled only to not appear, that of course being the problem, though I will also say that a right click menu not being there is like reaching onto my computer and pulling my finger away, sites that do that should be given the cold shoulder somehow, at least.

It appears web sites can track my activity on their site. How do I make it so a given web site can't track me? Does Firefox have a setting that makes it more difficult to track me on a given web site? I've seen where a VPN, not sure what that is, can be of big help. How do I initiate a VPN and are there free VPN's? When I visit this particular site it states, "from your site login activity" and goes on from there what they want to do. How do I make it more difficult for a web site to be able to track my log in activity? Will a VPN solve this problem? Or, does Firefox have various accessories that can do the same thing? I know deleting cookies with this particular site does not solve the issue for me. Can someone help? Thank you.

Just installed Firefox 100 on Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, upgrading from Firefox 56(!). The new version properly imported my previous color settings for visited/unvisited links, and visited links do change to the correct color, but for some reason, they do not reset to the unvisited color after clearing all browsing history and reloading the page. The only way I can get them to reset to the unvisited color is to close/re-start Firefox. Any idea what's going on? Thanks for any info!

For a long time, I often see that the apostrophe is not displayed but the code "\u2019" is there instead. It happens enough that I almost read past it as if it was correct english.

For example, a quoted Tweet on this site is shown as: "You clearly didn\u2019t bother to read her reply to him lol! " https://www.comicsands.com/aoc-clapback-musk-zuckerberg-twitter-2657252397.html

Seems to only be apostrophes. Ellipses, colons, quotations, brackets, dashes all appear fine.

I saw an article regarding Thunderbird that seemed very similar but didn't see much to help me. (questions/1312056). I saw a post about FF not using the Symbols font but that didn't help and I can't see how this should be a font issue (especially Symbol v. apostrophe).

Is there a way to fix it? The issue maybe due to the way the website is publishing quotes--I checked and found apostrophes appearing correctly on that page in the article headline and body text. The error is only inside the posted quotes.

Also, I don't see the pics of the quoted Tweets, just the text and I have to click on the date of the post to go to Twitter to see any graphic. Maybe that will help figure out what the apostrophe error is or maybe it is a second error/issue?

I run NoScript and uBlock Origin but I don' see any setting that would cause an issue. (uBlock is not blocking remote fonts. Twitter.com is not blocked by NoScript).

I'm no computer programmer or web designer but I find it hard to believe that an apostrophe should cause such a silly error.

Thank you.
