Reddit comments textbox shows duplicate text after pasteing When creating a comment (new or reply), the input textbox shows duplicate text. So what ever is pasted, it appears twice. If I post the comment anyway, only one copy of the text appears in the posted comment. It only seems to happen if I paste more than one line of text so maybe the CRLF at the end of line one has something to do with it. See attached image.

I tried the same operation with Chrome, and it does not have this duplicate text problem. So I'm guessing it some problem with the input textbox implementation in firefox.

Is this a known problem? Anyone else seeing this?

I realise that Firefox uses up a lot of Memory (particularly as it tries to run each Tab separately). However, my Firefox seems to keep increasing its usage!

I can start with a number of Tabs open & (after refreshing each Tab - to ensure it is "lice" & "active") I will get (according to Windows Task Manager) about 1,300MB in use.

Without opening up any more Tabs & without trying to run any Web-Based Videos, over a period of a few hours it will increase & increase & increase - perhaps getting up to 4,000MB!

I've cross checked with "about:performance" (to open FF's own Task Manager), to show the individual Tab usage, & that NEVER totals up to anywhere near the figures shown by the Windows Task Manager!!

Obviously, my FF is fully up to date!

Any comments!

This is the first time I've needed to do this in years but, at one time, installing a root (or, for that matter, third-level) CA certificate in Firefox was straightforward. Unless I'm missing something --and I've been poking around these files for over an hour-- it is now, at best, quite obscure. Is there a way for me to install a CA certificate for a CA you have chosen to not recognize and include with the system? If so, a clear explanation of how to do it would be appreciated. And, yes, I understand the implications of doing this.

Thanks.

I hate the "This time, search with" in the URL bar. When I want to search, I use the Search bar for that. I don't need extra icons that I'm not going to use taking up space in the URL bar. I've seen it suggested that they can be removed in the Search options page. But when I've tried that, it also removes them from the Search bar.

Here's what I want: for the URL bar to only have space for a URL, no "This time, search with" nonsense, but the Search bar left completely intact, with all the search engines I use.

I recently tried to tidy up my browser bookmarks using 'manage bookmarks' and reordered them and removed several duplicates. The tree structure in the library looks kind-of weird too, as some directories such as 'bookmarks toolbar' appear 3 or 4 times, sometimes nested within itself.

After I had finished reorganising I exited and went to one of the directories on the bookmarks toolbar, but it is still showing all the old and duplicated bookmarks and none of the more recent ones.

What is happening, and is there anything I can do to fix it?

I'm using FF88.0.1 on macOS 10.14.6

I'm a regular participant in the Microsoft Answers Community. When replying to messages there today a space appears when I press the space bar but as soon as I type the next character the space closes & the text runs together. E.g. instead of This is a sentence the text appears as Thisisasentence. If I then go back & re-insert the spaces they are retained but that is a royal pain.

This is a new behavior as of today. I have confirmed that this does not occur when using Safari nor does it occur when replying in the Apple support community.

I'd appreciate any insight on this.

Error code: SSL_ERROR_ACCESS_DENIED_ALERT The page you are trying to view cannot be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.

But other browsers are okay with this trustworthy site. How can I change settings in FF to be able to connect to zeist.raadsinformatie.nl?

For several weeks now, my ability to access my Gmail accounts on Firefox has been spotty. Sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn't. It'll go from working just fine, to saying it's offline and telling me it's "Unable to connect." No other sites — even other Google sites, like Drive or Sheets — do this, just Gmail. And I'm able to access it just fine in Safari and Chrome. Help?

Hello

My computer crashed two days ago. Luckily, I phoned HP help, had the computer refreshed, and miraculously everything reappeared and nothing was lost. Even, the other two browsers on my computer are back and running well. The only one exception was my Mozilla Firefox browser, which happens to be the one I use over 90% of the time, and most importantly , the only one that has my bookmarks. I have read the Mozilla help messages, and although it seems they suggest refreshing the Firefox browser, it seems to me the instructions are applicable only if I have access to it -- which I do not understand, since the point is that I have no access whatsoever to it when I click the icon on my desktop. I was thinking of downloading Firefox anew, but fear I may loose my bookmarks. I am not that consumer savvy and do not quite understand the details of what is suggested in the Mozilla Support page. The computer I use is a desktop HP Envy 700, 7 years old, and I have Windows 8.1. Can you help. Thank you.
