Hi Since I guess Firefox 99 - not sure ... and now in Firefox 100.0.2 CTRL + Z and CTRL + Y not working when editing in Word Press ...

It is so annoying and make you loose data and waste a lot of time.

I cannot keep saving data all the time - yes I know Word Press has its own data saving etc.

I am talking about a 'normal' operation as CTRL + Z and Y !

I am a keyboard user since the 90s (!) and use loads of shortcuts fast and makes me waste hours sometime.

Any tips, maybe in the About:config settings?

Thank you M

Chosen solution

I discovered I was using Tiny MCE and 'that' is the problem - at present.

I quite like the old way, rather than the new Block.

But I can set the block to show the classic top controls and CTRL + Z and Y both work fine now, apasrt from the fact CTRL + Z still goes undo the whole lot!

Sorry for bothering any one!

Please note: I mean within the 'Editing' in Word Press on any computer.

Addition: if it undoes, it does undo the whole lot!

Example I type:

trees

'then'

Trees 2

'then' threes 3

CTRL + Z doe not undo in step but deletes the whole 'whatever' I typed it and done in steps as abobe, instead of doing it one step at the time.

Not finished.

CTRL + Y does not work at all in Word Press Editing
