Several days ago (approximately 12-3-20) my Internet Download Manager add-on stopped working. Removing it and reinstalling it by using a link provided by IDM does not work. It will work only if I open the webpage where I intend to download (e.g.--YouTube) BEFORE I reinstall the add-on and only for as long as that page remains open. Closing the page and then reopening it somehow deactivates IDM, as it will no longer link to the video I want to download. Have tried everything i can think of to solve this, including deactivating all other add-ons and by uninstalling and reinstalling the IDM program itself. I also unchecked the "block popup windows" management tool within Firefox itself. Anyone have any ideas what is happening? Initially, I also received the error message added below, but as far as i can tell, none of my other programs are set to block IDM. The error message no longer appears.

Hi guys,

I don't know when and how exactly this thing was added to my firefox behind my back, I don't like it, I don't like Baidu Pan either but I have to use it.

I checked the extensions and add-ons, nothing suspicious was found.

Can you please help me remove it?

Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

Hi,

Google Chrome have just dropped an update featuring Tab groups. Holy smokes it is good.

As somebody who frequently has over a thousand tabs open, this is such an awesome feature. Any chance of Firefox getting it?

PS Love Firefox, great browser!
