Double-clicking a word or click and drag to select is removed by Firefox in Gmail on the first attempt. Subsequent attempts are successful.

Action: Open email in Gmail tab in Firefox. Double-click or click and drag a selection.

Result: Selection is highlighted for a couple seconds and then is unhighlighted (deselected). Cannot copy the original selection.

Expected result: Selection remains highlighted and can be copied by keyboard command or right-click context menu "Copy".

Attempted correction: A second attempt to highlight is successful as normal. Selection remains highlighted and available for copy function.

This is ONLY in Firefox. Chrome acts as expected first time, every time.

I'm trying to send some password protected files - 8mb in total. I have dragged and dropped them and when I select say, 2 downloads, 7 days and insert a password, I am then asked for my account info and password (again!). Having done all this, I am then presented with a screen that advises "Something went wrong!" I seem to be going round in circles and getting nowhere. I've restarted the PC, (Windows 10 Pro) opened Firefox v75 64 bit. What else should I do? This is most frustrating not to say disappointing.

ES6 local (file://) javascript modules and scripts behave inconsistently

I have been developing a relatively simple utility in html and javascript that I am simply running locally. The primary reason for running it in a browser at all is that I can design an interface fairly quickly in html and css. I don't intend to run this on a webserver (though it would of course be possible to do so). Now initially everything would simply fit in the html, but later I moved the javascript portion into separate files. This all worked well, until I wanted to switch to using ecmascript 6 modules. Simply adding the type="module" attribute breaks everything since my sourced script tags trigger the error described in https://developer.mozilla.org/nl/docs/Web/HTTP/CORS/Errors/CORSRequestNotHttp.

Now I understand the reasoning behind that change, but I do believe the behaviour in this context is very strange and definitely inconsistent. I believe the underlying cause may be related to the fact that javascript modules are loaded asynchronously while scripts are loaded synchronously.

I could (and probably will) change my configuration to allow the loading of resources from the same directory again (I am aware of the risks), but how is loading a static resource asynchronously any more dangerous than loading said static resource synchronously?

Hello.

I wish to set a default language for the address bar to be different from the current system language I use within the browser. I often switch between Hebrew and English languages withing my browser in different websites, but I wish the address should always default to English. It should not be affected from my language change. It's rare to use other languages than English in the address bar. And it will be great if there was a clear indication of what language is on near the address bar instead of typing and being "surprised/annoyed" and switching back to English.

I've been looking for a new job, and I like to print out the job descriptions to pdf to save for later reference. However, I've noticed that Firefox does not always print out the full web page. It will often cut off text, or only print the first page. It's more noticeable when the website uses frames.

I've tried using "print selection", but it still seems to cut off the text, or still tries to print the full site/page and not my selection.

When I print in Chrome, I do not have any issues.

Anyone else notice this and maybe have a resolution?

Thanks.

Recently updated to Firefox 75 and noticed that my URL Bar no longer behaves the way I expect it to. My issues in order:

Autocomplete failure: When typing in a single letter of a website, say "R", I expect the bar to autocomplete to Reddit.com. It currently does not do this at all. I have checked my about:config and urlbar.autocomplete is set to true. Likewise my options for searching and address bar are all set to fill from history. It does autocomplete from bookmarks, but never from history.

Did you mean to go to: If I enter anywhere from a single letter to a single word, it brings me to the google page with that string as the search string, but also offers a small popup bar near my url bar that says "Did you mean to go to {string}?" and the options Yes please, No thank you, and an X button for the popup bar. I did some searching and it seems to be either a DNS issue or an addon problem. I have since set my PC to use Google's DNS servers, I've started firefox in safe mode, and I fully Refreshed Firefox, and none of them fix the issue.

At this point I'm about to throw in the towel and switch to Chrome, but I really don't want to have to. Please help.

Hi all!

New Firefox user and I'm in love. Sorry it took me this long to find you guys! :) Anyway, I've been utilizing Google Meet more due to work & Covid-19.

When it comes to the video conferencing, that works well! There are issues I'm facing though.

When trying to screenshare (with all permissions already granted), I get this error message.

"Can't share you screen. Sorry, an error has occurred when screensharing"

When it comes to camera resolution, it's locked on SD 360p

Trying it on Safari and Chrome, I'm able to both screenshare and bring up the camera resolution to 720p

I'm on a Macbook Air (Catalina)

Please help :) Thanks all!!

Hi guys,

I have a legacy product being used in production and realized that one of the core components is Struts 1 out of the vendor`s support for more than 10 years already. Migration to Struts 2 is not a simple task and requires significant product re-write. Our product team is concerned if FF suddenly stops supporting Struts 1. Can someone from the FF team provide feedback on that?
