Have To Click Bookmark Twice Before Firefox Opens Page

I notice that since upgrading to version 79.0, I have to click a bookmark twice before Firefox will start navigating to the page.

This occurs for bookmarks, homepage Top Site shortcuts, or even if I type a URL into the address bar and press enter.

The first time I click or press enter, Firefox does nothing. I either have to click again or press enter again. After the second time, Firefox navigates to the page.

It's almost as if the first click is being ignored.

This seems to only occur after the browser is first opened. I can repeat the behavior by closing the browser and then re-opening it.

This was not a problem with the previous version. Only since 79.0.

I am trying to add DuckDuckGo as my default browser. It will not show up in the default list to choose. I have it added as an extension, but that doesn't seem to do anything. I am looking to replace the Google search bar in the Home page with DuckDuckGo. How do I go about accomplishing that? Thx in advance for all replies.

In recent months Firefox has updated several times on my laptop. The first time (6 months or so ago) I lost all my bookmarks and now can't bookmark anything. Annoying, but I just have to search for things. The most recent update (this past week) has disabled my search engine. I can't use my search bar at all at the top. When I try to designate what search engine I want, it won't allow anything. Again, I have to type in a search engine address directly, then use that search engine when I get on the page.

I also can't right click on a link and open another tab or page.

At this rate, I'm ready to simply delete Firefox and find a different browser to use.

I understand wanting to update Firefox with new bells and whistles...but it really needs to work across all platforms.

Help me out here....Jeff Pile

I want to dictate in the on-line version with MS Word. When I select the Microphone icon, I get a message that the Website can't access the Microphone. I have already scanned all articles about the topic, but I can't get the microphone to work. When I go to Options > Privacy & Security > Permissions > Microphone > Settings I can enter the URL, but the Enter button doesn't work. There is no microphone icon in the address bar neither. When I select the Lock icon, it tells me in the information pop-up that I have given no permission to anything. I have neither found something in the Windows 10 setting. I tried to dictate with the on-line version of MS Word with Chrome, and there it works. I would very much appreciate the help of someone who came across the same issue. Regards Bernhard

windows 10 64bit, latest firefox install. i see an issue with my keyboard typing the wrong characters in firefox, it seems to randomly replace the character i press on the keyboard with a different one. I can be typing something into a webpage, either ebay or facebook, or even an address on any ecomerce site, and i get ridiculous spelling issues. E.g i type "firefox issue" into this page, and i get "firefix issue" if i goto the the "O" btton on the keyboard, and hold it down, i get "iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiioiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiooiiiiiiii" or some other random pattern. I don't have any emoji extensions installed, and have zone alarm installed, and its up to date too. Any ideas??

I just got the Firestick, mainly because it allows you to use a web browser (as opposed to Roku). Apps display fine. But Firefox is so big that I only see the middle of the window. I can't even get to the "hamburger" section, nor the top bar to see if it's running in maximized. I'm assuming it's running as an app, though, because I do have the option to request a desktop site (same problem with that.)

Is there some setting that I'm missing? I've seen the stuff about holding down the menu key and hitting the rewind button, but that does nothing. And, when I hold down the menu key, I see the various options (such as installing tabs), but nothing about shrinking the screen size.

Any assistance would be very much appreciated.

Added Firefox Voice. Now what? How does it work? Honestly HATE these "ADD ON" products as there's no info on how to use them. While the concept is great for most of them... I can never figure out how to use them. Not upset with anyone it particular, just wish this was an easier process. Help.

Hello! I want to start using firefox instead of chrome, but there is a strange problem — i can't copy. Command+C doesn't work, I can do it only by right click or if I choose "copy" from "edit" in menu bar. But of course i used to command+C. Everything good with other shortcuts. What could be the problem?
