Why can a stupid failing script on a web-page, or even intentionally so programmed script disable the copy (and sometimes paste) functionality?

How can this be disabled/fixed?

One highlights a text (any text) on some web sites, Edit menu allows Copy, context menu allows Copy, one hits Copy, nothing happens. It's not even a page where someone wanted to "copy protect" some information.

Copy and Paste should work just as advertised since those were invented, how hard can it be to get that right? Even stupid Notepad never fails at it. And no, I don't care what the idiot who programmed a page though would be/should be best for me, I want Copy to be copy, Paste to be paste. This used to work in "original" Firefoxes even when page developers wanted to make it not work.

And yes, while on a given page Copy fails miserably, at the same time in other pages it works.

Hello Mozilla community!

yesterday I installed a program which installed adware (I overlooked a little checkbox). It also changed a couple of settings in my standard browser (Firefox) like the search engine etc. It also changed the homepage. I always had the homepage pointing to my YouTube feed. I changed it back to it using the about:preferences#home method. Under "Homepage and new windows" I set the homepage to my custom URL and the home button works perfectly fine. Yet when I open a new window (with ctrl+n, not a new tab!) it also displays my home page (YouTube). It has never done that before and I cannot find anything in the settings to change that. I tried looking in about:config with browser.newtab but didn't find anything that seemed related to my problem. A couple of weeks ago I tried Firefox Nightly and I started it up and the homepage worked fine AND it didn't display it in a new window. It only did this after it synchronized the data with my Firefox account. Now my question is: How can I remove the the Homepage from a new window (and replace it with an empty page or the Firefox Home)? Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Kindly Jay

p.s. I attached the Troubleshooting Information and I'm using Linux

System : Linux Mint 20.2 FireFox : 91.0.1 (64-bit)

Plugins/extensions "Hoxx VPN" and "SetupVPN" seems not to work anymore This is since FireFox 91.0.1 It takes a long time (about 30sec) connecting to the VPN, with no result. (no connection)

Both say something like : Result

<country> (SERVERS) 3.11.4 In some cases VPN extensions are not enough to bypass the firewall in your network. Extensions have only limited permissions on your computer and have limited capabilities.

We highly recommend to download our desktop client. It uses a very sophisticated VPN software and can bypass most of the firewalls.

Currently, I have configured my Privacy & Security settings in which all third-party cookies are blocked. This causes certain websites to break and become nonfunctional.

How do I configure my settings to which all third-party cookies are blocked by default, but for specific websites I choose they are not blocked?

I do not want to change my settings in which cookies are blocked only from websites I have not visited; because there are some websites I frequent that I still wish to block third-party cookies.

Thank you

Firefox no longer asks whether to open or save files.

Until about a month ago, every time I clicked on a download link to save a file, Firefox asked whether I want to save the file to my downloads folder, or to just open it, which would save it to a folder in my temp folder that would be deleted when I close Firefox.

Now, out of nowhere, it doesn't ask the question anymore, it automatically assumes I want to save it to a folder (instead of "opening" it).

Before anyone tells me to go to Settings -> General -> Applications, and set the file types to "Always ask", I have tried, and there are two problems with it:

  • There are only a few file types in that list. While I can set Firefox to ask when downloading those types of files, anything else (like text files or MP3 files) is saved to the downloads folder without asking. I want it to ask what to do with any file, not just the specific file types in that list.
  • Even for the file types that are available in the list, if I choose to open a file instead of downloading, it is still saved to my downloads folder instead of the temp folder, and is not deleted after I close Firefox.

Also, I'm using Manjaro Linux with KDE, and I also have the Plasma Integration extension installed on Firefox.

    Hi, how do we set Firefox 97 to use the os/system print dialog?

    Before Firefox 97 we could change these settings in about:config:

    print.tab_modal.enabled = false widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal = true

    But they are both gone now.

    There is now widget.use-xdg-desktop-portal.print, which is an integer (2 by default).

    But no matter what integer it is set to, we still don't get the os/system print dialog.

    We are using Arch Linux, but we don't expect that to be of any importance -- after all, it worked before Firefox 97.

    Thanks for your time :o)

    Error NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY on every page

    Hi, I've been having issues with Firefox for some time now. Every page I got to throws a NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY error. I cannot fix it by setting network.http.spdy.enabled.http2 to false is because Firefox then starts crashing. In the past I've gone around the error by turning http2 off, but recently, first the developer edition, then after today's update to 91.0-0.1 of stable version Firefox crashes if I turn the feature off.

    The developer Edition started throwing NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_SECURITY sometime in spring, then started crashing in June I think. The stable version followed soon as described above.

    I am submitting this ticket from a beta version, which for some reason does not have this issue.

    I thought it may be the Linux version of Eset, but removing it did not help. I cannot think of any other reason why am I getting those errors, but it seems I am alone because my colleagues don't seem to have this issue neither on macOS, nor Windows.

    Hello, i have at this moment TWO versions off ff in use. my standard install wont open any file on the LOCAL drive AND severall BUTTONS are not working so now i use the 'standalone' version that just opdated to 87, nice but the OLD version 78ers is now broken or hacked

    i tried to look up profile.js etc but perhaps on debian those migth have a different name ? i noticed that with other progs and configs aswell. is it the permisions.ini file ?

    the general.config.obscure_value is NOW 0, but WAS 13

    i hope there is a simple solution. if i continue with 87 and delete 78 , what will happen? after RE-install off 87esr al still is blocked. C

    Is there an easier way to view two tabs on the screen at the same time - "split screen" fashion? One can open one tab in a second window and adjust to have one window on the top half of the display and the other on the bottom. But this is a awkward.

    See screenshot of this. It shows downtown Minneapolis in Google maps at two different scales. (Note that the I35W crossing of the Mississippi in the upper right corner is the one that collapsed in 2011).

    One can switch back and forth between two tabs (maybe after moving the two tabs to be adjacent). But this is still suboptimal.

    I use splitscreen in my text editor all the time (vertically or horizontally) and find it very useful. I wish there were an easy way to switch to/from split screen in Firefox.

    BTW I searched the Firefox "Find help..." for: "split screen" tabs and got 1640 hits! I looked at the first 10 pages and saw nothing relevant.
