Ever since I got my new machine, running Monterey 12.0.1 Firefox will not copy images to the clipboard. Doesn't matter whether I use the trackpad, the menu, what webite etc, it simply will not copy an image. Copying images still works in Chrome, Safari, and all my other software. It's only Firefox (running version 95.0.2 (64-bit)).

Having trouble with Firefox being slow when first starting

Ever since version 88 or 89 Firefox has started being slow to load. I have tried everything. Uninstalled it, reinstalled it. Started it in safe mode. Started it without the 4 addons I use. Refreshed it. Started it as a new installation with nothing on it without signing in. People have tried to direct me to troubleshooting and basically threw up their hands and chalked it up to user error. All why Chrome and Brave with all the same settings and addons open immediately and run smoothly with no issues. So I know it’s not user error. There have been a few updates for Firefox but none of them fixed anything. No one has been able to help me fix the issue. I don’t know what it is and have never had this issue before with any browser. It’s slow loading the first time I open it and then works fine afterwards, albeit more slowly than Chrome or Brave. Also, Firefox is installed on my SSD drive in my gaming laptop running more than enough memory and with a Nvidia 1060 with updated drivers.

version 94.0.2 (64-bit) message: "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." I can not see any of my bookmarks and I can not bookmark any page. I have: Shut down Firefox and restarted: no help uninstalled, deleted folders, and reinstalled: no help Import bookmarks from another browser: no help. That doesn't work either

What "security software" is the message talking about?

Hope you can help, because I don't want to go to another browser.

Hello, My school uses Google workspace. The logo of my schools appears as a broken image in Gmail/Google drive etc. when I use Mozilla Firefox (Ver 93.0) to login into my account. The problem does not happen if I use other browsers like Chrome or Microsoft edge. Could you please look into this problem. I am attaching a screenshot.

When I close Firefox at night & open it next day. Every tab is lost, so I have no record of the sites I was using. This has happened several times. I am now seriously looking at dumping Firefox due to its very unstable & unreliable performance. Fire fox does not offer any means of reopening all the tabs that it closed, it actually deletes all tracking. Firefox is unstable, unreliable & totally user unfriendly. I am dumping Firefox for a more professional browser, as Firefox is rude & makes it impossible to contact & seek advice. I think Firefox sucks.

I chose lavender as the background color, but I hate it. It has changed all my links to lavender and I want to go back to the default settings before I added the lavender. I want the default settings before the Colorways options were made available.

Even though I have figured out how to change the themes, the lavender color is still present in certain words. I want it to go. I want what I had before I added the lavender theme.

I have looked at the articles, but I cannot find an option that says "go back to what you had before" or "undo" or "restore default settings". I'm possibly missing a step. Don't know. I'm frustrated that I can add something so easily, but not get rid of it so easily.

Please help me restore my back ground colors to pre-Colorways add-on lavender. I have a Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.6.
