I can't figure out how to get a word count of a web page. The problem: an academic website offers a tremendously long work in five parts--so lengthy I can't copy&paste into Word without getting error messages. The only extension FF has for getting a word (or character) count is Count Me Up, but you have to paste text into a little box. Shouldn't word count be a FF tool? BTW Chrome too doesn't seem to know about any word count extensions.

A standard behavior of any application on Ubuntu is when you mouse middle button click on any open window top title bar that application window gets lowered to underneath all other open windows ... This has worked fine on ff nightly until a few days ago ... this is even when ff setting -> Customize -> Toolbars -> Menu Bar it enabled

ff nightly 82.0a1 (2020-09-08) (64-bit)

on Ubuntu 20.04

As a long time ff user on nightly while on various releases of Ubuntu over the years this typically works OK however about once a year it stops working then somehow starts working OK

On same Ubuntu 20.04 machine all other applications are OK with this behavior

Why was 'Close tabs to the right' moved into a submenu?

Earlier, you could quickly close all tabs that I was done using by keyboard shortcuts 'Right Click' on Tab > 'i' > Enter This was a quick and very often used shortcut to close tabs to the right. Likewise for the 'Close other tabs' option.

But it's now moved inside a 'Close Multiple Tabs' menu. And this menu does not have a unique keyboard shortcut. It has M, which is also the shortcut for mute tab. So now when one needs to close tabs, it becomes 'Right Click' on Tab > 'm' > 'm' > Enter > Enter

Could this be changed so that either the keyboard shortcut for Close Multiple Tabs is not 'm', or that the close tabs options appear in the main menu on right click?

I noticed for some reason I can use left shift for the shortcut to open private windows, but the right shift works fine. I also noticed left shift doesn't work to open Windows Task Manager. It's know the key being broken, because it works with other shortcuts. Has anyone else had a problem like this who can help me?

I have a website which makes ajax requests to some endpoints which can take more than a minute (depending on how busy the server might be). In the recent version of firefox (81), it seems like after about a minute, the request appears to time out without an error message. I checked against other browsers and none seem to have the same issue.

Was this behavior expected out of version 81? I don't see anything in the release notes about this kind of change.

Hi. Since the last update of Firefox, the Languages item on the right-click menu has disappeared and I don't know how to swap between languages for spell checking any more (the explanation on page https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-use-firefox-spell-checker doesn't correspond to what I see new: isn't it outdated?). I find where to change the display language of menus and commands in the Options, but not where to switch between spell-check dictionaries. So I have menus in Portuguese and spell-check fixed on English... Can you help, please? Thanks.

I cannot find a way to permanently increase the size of the fonts in the bookmarks toolbar. the fonts are so small I cannot read them. Why has firefox never addressed this issue? There has to be a reasonable way to do this and if not, why not?

And how about being able to change font size throughout the application?

When I select Help > Firefox Help from the menu, I come here, to the support forum. What I want to do first, though, is look up my question in the documentation, or what are usually called help files in most applications. This would save me, and the FF support forum, a lot of time. How can I do this, please?
