As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

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 was cleaning out my hard drive and deleting old installs of Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable packages, and I almost certainly deleted the one that Firefox relies on.

I then attempted to start Firefox, getting the error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

I uninstalled, following the clean install directions, and deleting the "Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/" directory.

Then, I ran the Firefox Installer, newly downloaded, and when running it, it gives the same error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." Selecting "Restore Defaults" has no effect either way. The installer then appears to complete in the background, and the Firefox directory is created, along with the executable.

When I run Firefox.exe, it seems to load the program, but any address I type in fails to begin loading. This includes websites (www.google.com) and help/utility pages (about:config). I'm therefore unable to change any settings within Firefox.

I then tried re-installing the "Visual C++ 2008" and "Visual C++ 2015-2019" packages in an attempt to restore that DLL, but that had no effect after repeating the same steps above (clean uninstall, re-install). Which VC++ Redist Package should I be re-installing? Ideally, I should be able to just get a copy of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll and place it where Firefox is looking for it.

My system is Firefox 79, Windows 10. Lazy loading is supported in Firefox since version 75: https://caniuse.com/#feat=loading-lazy-attr

I found that this works on Firefox for lazy loading of images. However, YouTube embedding in an iframe, it doesn't work. I ensured that the video is long way below the fold. Even then, the iframe is loaded upfront. This is the HTML for the iframe:

<iframe loading="lazy" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/iQBat7e0MQs" allowfullscreen="" width="480" height="270"></iframe>

On Chrome, lazy loading works as expected for the same web page (on my localhost).

I have recently been encountering issues with Twitch.tv that were not present even two and a half weeks ago. I keep getting a blacked out screen with an "error #3000" message. The only known website that seems to deal with the issue comes at the problem from the idea that people are trying to access the site via Chrome. The few options they suggested that I can apply to my machine— clearing the cache and cookies or else using CCleaner offered no help.

This is not consistent however, as some other twitch channels I go to work perfectly fine. It's worth noting that I was not encountering this issues with Firefox version 78.0.2, while I am currently on version 79.0, and this is the version that has brought this issue up. Should I try downgrading to the previous version and see if that helps, or what?

Does anyone else get this error message, and if you do, what did you do to fix it? The few things I could try, I already have, save for turning off the hardware acceleration, which I don't think is the problem, as if it were, I would have seen it weeks ago when this wasn't an issue.

I am including a screenshot of what I'm seeing.

I think this site is relatively safe. It hosts replays of company earnings conference calls with analysts.

http://public.viavid.com/player/index.php?id=140568

The page loads. Some form fields can be filled in, but not the one for email. The insecure connection icon appears.

Is the connection is insecure, why does the page load even partially?

Or is this page an example of mixed content blocking (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/mixed-content-blocking-firefox)? If so, why is there is no option to bypass the blocked connection?

Or is something else happening here?

Many thanks
