I cannot copy and paste from one Google doc into another Google doc in Firefox. But I can in Google Chrome.

I don't know the reason for this. Is it because Google (Chrome & Drive) does not want competition? Is it because this inter-doc copy-and-paste requires code that Mozilla doesn't want to bake into Firefox?

Doing this on windows Firefox running the latest version as of yesterday (Aug 10 2022).

Win 10laptop had Firefox installed and working. Suddenly stopped after some windows updates. I have Uninstalled several times, both vanilla and using IOBIT program. Deleted the program file folder, and the local apps profile. Won't start in safe mode either. I don't even see anything in task manager when clicking. No error messages.

However.....tried installing developer version and it works fine!

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

I need to access an essential security device that has an address similar to my modem, with numbers and periods only. But Firefox consistently adds either "HTTP" or "HTTPS" to the address, so Firefox says, “Unable to connect.” I am able to access my modem page without Firefox adding anything to the address. The instructions I found (at Support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/https-only-prefs) say to disable or insert exceptions in the “HTTPS only" option on the “Privacy and Security” section of Firefox Preferences. However, there is NO "HTTPS only" selection in my Preferences (Version 78.150esr). The other suggestion, to “Click the Lock icon in the address bar,” will not work because there is no Lock icon in the address bar with this address. I have "Use the address bar for search. . ." unchecked in the "Search" section of Firefox Preferences. I also tried unchecking “Provide search suggestions,” disabling all of my Firefox extensions, and using “non-private browsing” mode. Safari browser will not connect to this URL either. Help!

I would like to create what I call custom popups. If I go to a page, a popup will show my own notes. This may be a reminder about my personal history. It would have to be on my computer only and be triggered when I go to the site. I realize that the real url may be obscured by an app, and I don't know if that can be overcome.

I'm imagining when I go to a particular web page, I will see a reminder, or popup or note with my own comments.

This may already be available, but perhaps I don't know the right questions to ask.

I assume this would only be available on one browser on one computer.

Looking at a product on Amazon (that I've purchased before), it may tell me: "Works like a charm" or "Piece of *"

On a dating site it might remind me when I see one person: "Danger, Will Robinson" or "Try again after Christmas"

A business site might show a note: "Remind owner you met at Halloween bash" or "Express sympathy about loss of pet"

On the App Store it might remind me that an app: "Doesn't work for me" or "This is the one Janet recommends"

Perhaps on a saved document: "Sent on Aug 7 by Robert" or "Still doesn't have the right tone....look again in a week"

And when I am deciding which app to use on my computer: "Great graphic app when rushed, but not powerful" (I would never think that an app named "Moosepow" was for graphics.)

I may even be asking the wrong question. I want reminders that are automatic.

Hello,

How do I get Firefox Developer Edition to stop reporting Dangerous Site ahead and redirecting me to another site entirely different on the basis of localhost security certificate issued by unknown issuer.

I am running xampp on windows10.

Firefox works just great (not developer edition).

I look forward to a quick answer please.

Every time I launch Firefox a message appears on the top right corner asking to update with the following text: "Update available Download the latest version of Firefox"

I have never followed this message for I've suspected fake, but it keeps appearing, and every time more and more often along the day (at the beginning it was only once per launch). This keeps occurring in spite of updating to the latest Firefox update (103.0.2) through the "About Firefox" top left menu on my Mac.

Please advise how to get rid of this annoying message. Is this a potential hack or virus attack?

My bookmarks do not seem to be syncing between my computers. I have updated versions of Firefox on both computers, sync is turned on, the same account is logged in, and the bookmarks option is selected on both computers. But when I force sync, there is a bookmark missing on one of the tabs. The most recent bookmark I've added. This has happened in the past and I had to manually add the bookmark.

Any suggestions?

Ganz egal, was in '/etc/apparmor.d/usr.bin.firefox' respektive in '/etc/apparmor.d/local/usr.bin.firefox' spezifiziert wird, das Zugriffsrecht für '/usr' ist immer 'read'.

Wie kann man auf die Dateien unter '/usr/share' zugreifen?
