Mac OS X Option-Shift-Arrow keyboard combo not working on Firefox 60.0

I'm using Firefox Quantum 60.0 on Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.3. I frequently use the Option - Shift - Left/Right Arrow keyboard combo to select words of text. This combo worked in Firefox up until this latest update. I checked my keyboard preferences in OS X, and everything looks fine there. I disabled all Firefox Add-Ons and also restarted the browser in safe mode, and this unfortunately did not help. Note that I can still use this keyboard combo in Chrome and all other applications. I then looked at key bindings in about:config, but I haven't customized anything there, and the values all look to be their defaults. What further steps should I take to restore this shortcut functionality?

Thanks! PristineSabine

I prefer using Firefox as my default browser.

Now, about 2 days ago, something happened and I cannot move the tabs inside the browser anymore. This is a really important feature (to arrange the tabs in certain order). I've noticed I'm trying to use the other browser now instead. I've tried searching the web for an answer, but the safe mode -> check add on.s didn't resolve this problem for me.

I also re-installed the firefox, but nothing seems to help. Is this some kind of a new feature (tabs are static) or is there some kind of a setting I can use to be able to do this (moving the tabs inside Firefox)?

Hello.

I just upgraded my OS. The upgrade included Firefox v60.0 which replaces the window manager, which I find unacceptable. Not only is this highly irritating because I use the 'Close' button on the left (and Firefox has it on the right) it also messes up the appearance (colours, transparency, icons, etc.) but also removes some of the window manager's functionality (shade, focus model, keyboard shortcuts, etc.).

How do I disable this "feature" so that I can use my system the way I want to instead of being dictated by Mozilla how I should use it?

Thank you kindly.

My options are set to open 2 pages as tabs upon launch. The first tab starts off with "New Tab" as its label then after a couple of seconds changes to "Google" as the tab label. This is the correct first homepage. It's a little issue but somewhat annoying not to have the correct label show immediately. This does not occur in Internet Explorer. Why an interim label before the correct one shows? Does anyone else notice this?

Every time I try to import my bookmarks from either the .json or the .html file, the process ends up with Firefox not responding, and then I have to close the program. I do have a lot of bookmarks, but I've also given it up to ten minutes to import everything before I try clicking away, and no dice. Is there a fix to make sure it doesn't hang or crash? I really need my bookmarks back.

including today's update, my computer shows 10 versions of Mozilla from 54 to 60. When I attempt to uninstall any versions (didn't try version 60), I get the Error message "kernel32::GetLongPathNameW(w, w ,R7, i 1024)i ,R6\uninstall\helper.exe" "This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please installan app or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Settings page."

What is the procedure to remove the excess versions? Do I need to use something like REVO to force removal, or do I need to just get rid of Mozilla completely?

I saw many discussion forums: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1212834, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1211433 . But none of them, helped me. They said that it needs an add-on. But the question arises - Why Mozilla is not adding this feature?. I have got some api(s) too (If it helps any Firefox Developer to build the feature in Firefox and give it in future releases. See this api: https://pdfcrowd.com/doc/api/ . There is an open source too : https://wkhtmltopdf.org/ . Please add them I beg your pardon !

Since this last update new new tabs page with most used links and such doesn't automatically open on new tabs. I got it to open only when I open a new browser. Otherwise I need to click the homepage button left of the address bar. I like when it automatically opened before but I cant seem to get it to work like it used to. I didn't change anything after the last update it just changed it for me.

1. sometimes I need Opera-like "click to load this image"

2. sometimes I only need to load images in the "first fold" (this is especially true when loading 100 photos in forums and in gmail when I need only first 5-20

In other words, users need more options instead of "on" and "off"

Some inspiration:

3. for questions about current tabs

3.2. https://www.w3.org/TR/page-visibility/

4. for questions about current element?..

5. Firefox must plan for new HTTP header about image size (when images are "off" we can download only image resolution and use it in layout)
