Reddit comments textbox shows duplicate text after pasteing When creating a comment (new or reply), the input textbox shows duplicate text. So what ever is pasted, it appears twice. If I post the comment anyway, only one copy of the text appears in the posted comment. It only seems to happen if I paste more than one line of text so maybe the CRLF at the end of line one has something to do with it. See attached image.

I tried the same operation with Chrome, and it does not have this duplicate text problem. So I'm guessing it some problem with the input textbox implementation in firefox.

Is this a known problem? Anyone else seeing this?

How do you have the Touch Bar show word and emoji suggestions when typing?

Expected

When typing text while using Firefox browser, the Touch Bar is expected to provide suggestions, i.e. words and emojis.

e.g. Chrome enables this feature

Actual

The Touch Bar does not provide word or emoji suggestions when using Firefox browser. This seems potentially related to the "Keyboard" setting "Touch Bar typing suggestions" that is not showing for Firefox.

Configuration

  • macOS: 11.3.1
  • Firefox: 88.0.1

I got started using Firefox a few years ago. Once I got adjusted to the different controls, I really like using it, BUT...

I have updated it three times now (the last time was on accident after ignoring the notice for a long time). Every update breaks the browser for me. I start getting Windows that don't load - the dot just bounces but the window stays blank for hours. The browser fails to load anything. On restart I get message that Firefox failed to close properly. New windows take up to 6 or 7 tries to load a link, and the same for loading into a tab.

The first couple times I updated, I followed the guidance to save favorites, dump the browser and restart from scratch, then load everything back in. While it worked, it's a PITA for a browser that updates pretty frequently, and I think routine updates should be able to load without having to spend hours troubleshooting and reloading. I'm not stupid or computer illiterate - I manage a Linux server cluster at work, but I can't manage my Firefox at home through a routine update.

Can anyone help get Firefox to load and run properly such that it works even after an update? I hate Edge, and Internet Explorer, while easy to learn is full of security holes and often DOA at most websites these days. I refuse to go Google, and I'd prefer to not learn another browser. I like Firefox, but the post-update problems are killing me.

I have noticed that my Firefox browser has become so slow that it is nearly unusable.

I have noticed that Mozilla has been offering their VPN for $5/month. Has the company slowed down the browser to sell this feature?

Or is there something in the Microsoft updates that have slowed down the browser.

I really like Firefox but I have reverted Chrome simply to get my work done without waiting for Firefox to load. I really am not a big fan of Google and I really find Microsoft to be, well, Microsoft.

I'm using FF88.0.1 on macOS 10.14.6

I'm a regular participant in the Microsoft Answers Community. When replying to messages there today a space appears when I press the space bar but as soon as I type the next character the space closes & the text runs together. E.g. instead of This is a sentence the text appears as Thisisasentence. If I then go back & re-insert the spaces they are retained but that is a royal pain.

This is a new behavior as of today. I have confirmed that this does not occur when using Safari nor does it occur when replying in the Apple support community.

I'd appreciate any insight on this.

Since 88.0.1 all Amazon Prime Video content displays this message: "Your browser does not support High-Definition playback due to content restrictions. Please update your browser for the best Prime Video experience".

I've tried turning off vpn, adblocker, and set tracking protection back to 'standard', nothing helps.

I'm on W10 1909 Home which is technically not supported by MS as from this week so I did consider that as a possible (but unlikely) reason for it. However, the content plays fine in MS Edge. The content also plays fine from a laptop running Chrome on 1909 Enterprise (similar build to mine albeit not out of support yet).

I see widevine was updated in 88.0.1 - could this be the issue?

Thanks

Hello

My computer crashed two days ago. Luckily, I phoned HP help, had the computer refreshed, and miraculously everything reappeared and nothing was lost. Even, the other two browsers on my computer are back and running well. The only one exception was my Mozilla Firefox browser, which happens to be the one I use over 90% of the time, and most importantly , the only one that has my bookmarks. I have read the Mozilla help messages, and although it seems they suggest refreshing the Firefox browser, it seems to me the instructions are applicable only if I have access to it -- which I do not understand, since the point is that I have no access whatsoever to it when I click the icon on my desktop. I was thinking of downloading Firefox anew, but fear I may loose my bookmarks. I am not that consumer savvy and do not quite understand the details of what is suggested in the Mozilla Support page. The computer I use is a desktop HP Envy 700, 7 years old, and I have Windows 8.1. Can you help. Thank you.
