I've been trying to copy an email address someone emailed me. (I use Microsoft Outlook.)

However, when I try to select the email address, Outlook seems to know I've selected it and performs some action, taking me to a different page. VERY ANNOYING!

Sites shouldn't be able to know when you're selecting text - that has nothing to do with them! How do I disable this?

I have a premium Pocket account. I have pocket set to display suggested articles on the Firefox 'home page'. Out of the blue several weeks ago I clicked on 'more' to save an article to pocket and the pocket choices did not include 'save to pocket.' The choices given are: bookmark, open in a new window, open in a new private window, dismiss. Also when I move the cursor to 'more' a pinterest 'save' appears beside 'more'. I used to have the pinterest 'save' extension but I deleted it.

How do I get rid of the pinterest save and how can I get the correct 'more' choices, i.e. save to pocket back?

I've done everything I know to do and nothing has worked. At present I am right clicking on the articles I would have saved to pocket (each article to a new tab) and then I use the One Tab extension to save them in a group. I have attached a screenshot.

Thank you in advance for any help you can give me.

Can't use Firefox to access make an appointment page: https://myappt.sdil.net/#/ Had to use Chrome (ugh!). Uploaded the Chrome page, but can't even upload the screenshot of the Firefox page (it's totally black) because the upload just spins when I try to upload it here!

Firefox creates almost 200 processes on exit, 100% CPU

Hello,

When I close Firefox after the last update (current installed version: 112.0 x64 Windows 10), Firefox creates almost 200 processes (in the latest case 177), each using from 17 MB to 65 MB RAM (except one that is using over 200 MB - I guess the main one) using 100% CPU for about half a minute, and in that my PC is unusable - everything hangs. It takes a bit more time to close all of them.

Any ideas what could be wrong and how to fix it?

Thank you.

I am using the latest version of Firefox (112.02 32-bit) with Windows 10 but am being blocked from certain websites by the Cloudflare security app because it says that my browser is out-of-date. This was particularly embarassing when I was trying to buy tickets for a concert recently and was unable to access the venue's online payment system.

It may be that Cloudflare is confused because I occasionly use an older version of Firefox (52.9.0 32-bit) with an earlier version of Windows. How can this issue be resolved so that Cloudflare does not block legimate access to websites when I am using the most up-to-date version of Firefox?

Before Update: I have two different YouTube workflows on two different systems. Although I use ONE Mozilla account, I was able to get automatic sign on for TWO different systems. This meant that I was not automatically logged into the other account as long as I was on the appropriate device.

After Update: Auto-login is only working on my main system's Firefox (without new update). I now have to re-log into my production YT account manually. The reason I can identify this was after the update is because I now have an "old Firefox data" folder on my desktop, aswell as all my extensions being re-installed.

Considerations/Clarifications - I do not mean auto-fill passwords. I mean that my account is already ready to go when I access the YT site. - I use a few security extensions. I understand that these may have an impact on my browser's ability to save passwords. However, for the past 7 years, this has never been a problem given similar extensions.

    - Extension List: Privacy Badger, Adblock, Adblock plus, Adblock for YT, DuckDuckGo privacy essentials,  Facebook container, and Decentraleyes.

Any help is appreciated.

I'm using Firefox 112 on Windows 10. The toolbar contains icons for several extensions that I don't want to see. I click on the >> menu and then Customize Toolbar. That opens the Overflow Menu. It says, "Drag and drop items here to keep them within reach but out of your toolbar." I try to drag one of those extension icons onto the Overflow Menu. It won't go. The dragged icon picks up a circle with a line through it, indicating that this is not allowed or not working.

How can I use the Overflow Menu as advertised, to remove unwanted extension icons from the toolbar? Or is there a good workaround?

I've had Firefox issues for months now. It started after the update three updates ago. Firefox would take 10-15 minutes to load, I often couldn't load websites even after it had loaded....except for a couple of nights recently I've been able to use it flawlessly. Like right now. It's almost 11pm and it's working. I've been through the clear the cache, check if the extensions are slowing it down etc. routine. So why is it working now? It probably won't work in the morning, it didn't work last night, but it worked a few nights ago and again tonight. I'm sorry this sounds so strange but I don't know what to do. I've had to use a different browser for a while but would love to come back to Firefox again.

I can't get Firefox to use some custom cursors. Firefox is only recognizing the cursors that came installed with Ubuntu. Any of the cursors I installed will default to DMZ-White, but Firefox is using those cursors that came installed with Ubuntu. I tried defining the default cursor in /usr/share/icons/default/index.theme but did nothing as well. Also I tried with the cursor in /usr/share/icons and in /home/name/.icons and firefox cannot get in any of those.

I don't know if it's something wrong with my cursors or it's some inner thing with Firefox, any one has a guess? Incompatibility or something missing from the cursor?

Opening the Pocket website on Firefox to view saved articles has text that overlaps.

Opening the Pocket website to view the very same saved articles on other web browsers like Microsoft Edge or Brave don't have such a problem. Attached screenshots of how the Pocket website presents on Firefox vs Edge.

When I search directly from the address bar, the search always defaults to google.com/....whatever I am searching for. But even though my region is set to United Kingdom, my search results are definitely not the same as if I were to navigate to www.google.co.uk and then search for the same string. Is there any way for the default google search to use google.co.uk rather than google.com Thanks?
