Since a few months, I have noticed a nasty issue with pasting on some websites.

For example, when I try to paste text in the body with CTRL/CMD+V on the web interface of my email provider (mailbox.org), the cursor is moved to the end of the message but no text is copied. Right-click > paste does work, and no issue for the recipient and subject fields. The issue is only when writing emails in HTML; plain text works fine. Another example, when editing a protocol on protocols.io, hitting CTRL/CMD+V leads to a blank page, which needs to be refreshed (but the text has not been pasted). There is no option to do it via right-click > paste there. Same issue when submitting a manuscript on PCI Paleontology.

All these examples are specific to Firefox (I have the latest version installed); it is reproducible both on macOS 10.15 and Win10. It doesn't seem to be due to add-ons (I tried to deactivate them one by one and nothing changed). There is no problem with Chrome-based browsers (e.g. Iridium) or Safari.

Is it maybe some configuration or something? Any idea?

How can I get my xxx@free.fr address (zimbra mail) instead. Help from mozilla doesn't help me! Years ago the same problem was solved with a button on the first opening of the mail box.

Since some weeks, I cannot load any URL, event about:config etc. does not work, even Developper Tools do not open.

I deinstalled complety firefox and reinstalled - same issue. I restartet with add-ons disabled, no chance. I even cannot open settings, to deaktivate hardware acceleration. I cleared all folders and settings in ubuntu /.mozilla and /.cache/mozilla - no way.

The only thing workes is "customize toolbar".

Now I'm on chrome, but I dont like it, I wanna have my firefox back!

Any Ideas?

I truly hope somebody can give me some help. I am struggling to understand why my website page containers go nuts on Firefox. I tried so much, I payed a good developer who told me the issue was over, but it is still there. I'm trying everything but my project is being a failure due to very nasty WP Theme issues, like this one. I had to spend my time fixing the Theme and my project completely past its deadline. Maybe I'm going to be fired, without fox.

I clearly cannot add site credentials for anybody, but maybe some developer knows what could be of help.

It seems that the issue has something to do with page Container and Flex attribute. The website is a Wordpress site and the page is built with WPBakery Visual Editor. All updated, no customizations, pages should work easy... As you can see the page title is ok, but then inside the main page container, the Visual Editor rows (which have display = flex) behave as if they had no width. Despite that, changing the flex attribute to display = block targeting FF specifically through Css, it doesn't seem to work either. It's not something simple just as a Row option inside the Visual Editor.

Please see attachments. Many pages behave like that. My questions: - is there a possibility to speak with Firefox assistance and get a clue? - did any developer from community, experience something similar before? How did you manage to solve it? - Firefox, why are you behaving like that with an old supporter?

Thank you to anybody spending his time to help.

Upgraded from 60.9ESR to 78.8ESR Tons of empty white space being wasted in my address bar drop down, and the preferences+addons pages now only occupy half the screen so I have to scroll more to see all my options, click to fully read text boxes and open sub-menus?!

How can I make these things more compact? The Customize options don't affect them, though I've changed the "blow-up" address bar behaviour using policies.json.

Hope someone can hlep with this, it has been going on for weeks now. I am a member of a survey site, and for the past few weeks, when I log onto this site to do a survey, I always get a message saying there was an error in the survey, and I am returned to the homepage. I've sent a huge amount of emails to the survey site help centre, and to my isp, and I keep getting told there is nothing wrong with me account for the survey site, or my internet connection to this site. My ISP has asked my to do all sorts of tests etc., and all come back as normal, and yet the survey site cannot find or fix the issue. I am asked to use a different browser, so I have tried all three that I might use, Firefox, Edge, and Chrome, all the latest updated ones etc., and with the non Firefox browsers I get a message saying my account is suspended (survey site account), so now I am confused and annoyed.

Can anyone help sort this out please as I am now thinking it might be an issue with Firefox? Who knows...but it is very odd that I can access all other survey sites, no issues, and yet this one site will not allow me to do any surveys.

I use Simplify.com to track some financial data but I cannot log in from the Firefox browser. I can get to the login screen but when I click login there is a spinning circle which never stops. I think I have found ways to put this in the exceptions but nothing works. I have a similar issue with Zinio.com. I can get to the website but cannot login. For both of these sites I have to use Google Chrome to get in.

I really like my new window URL, but I only need to see it once a day. The blank page new tab is great for someone like me whose attention gets hijacked by interesting Pocket articles.

I have a link on my toolbar to a text scratchpad URL: data:text/html, <html contenteditable>

It's great for grocery lists, YouTube comments, etc. and if I really need to save the text it's no problem.

Is there a way to turn that URL into the default new tab URL?
