Is this all of the time, sometimes . . . . .

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Every field in every website does the same thing. Opening in safe mode was a good suggestion, but didn't work. I have disabled all of the plugins and extensions, get the same problem. If I open word, type my response in word, I can copy and then paste into the Firefox opened dialog box with no problems. Problem does not occur with Chrome or Edge, neither of which I particularly like.

So the problem is only with Firefox, and Safe Mode does not help.

What's your computer system and Firefox version? Did you update Firefox to the latest version 66.0.1 March 22, 2019

Uninstalled Firefox, downloaded 66.0.1 and installed it. Same problem. I am running Win 10 home, rev 17763 on an IBuypower gaming computer.

I doubt this will help, but

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there? Starting Any Computer In Safe Mode; Free Online Encyclopedia
