I'm working to complete a book using Bookify on blurb.com. For previous volumes, and half of this one, I logged on using FFox and cut and pasted text from word into the book layout. Now nothing will paste except the word "null". Cut and paste is working on blank Word pages and in new emails. Blurb help desk suggests it is a problem with FFox. Am using v 63.0.1 on a Macbook. Wondering if anything in the latest update might have changed? Would appreciate any ideas. Many thanks.

I am creating a 3D floorplan and find that Firefox Quantum (latest version) will not display it at all and provides a couple of error messages relating to resources and WebGL, however, when i visit the same url in Firefox Developer Edition the page works brilliantly.. the url works in Chrome, but Firefox Dev Edition is far superior with smooth and high quality rendering.

I have tried to disable all the Add-ons in the Quantum/default Firefox etc etc but nothing works.. so I wondered if there was a SIMPLE way to configure Quantum like Dev Edition that I can advise my clients.. so we can keep Firefox in the loop.

The problem mainly happening for last 7-10 days. While using facebook or youtube, the tab suddenly stops responding and then becomes full white and then restores to the previous section without refreshing. I check my Task Manager if the problem happened because of lack of Memory or Disk. But no, both are totally in a good condition. I don't know why it's happening. Note that, I usually use 2 tabs at a time.

Here's what I did. Hopefully, you can help me reverse this process.

I searched for a project name using the Windows 7 search bar. Email messages and other files appeared from various locations. I selected ALL the files and dragged them to a folder I made on the desktop. Now I can't read the email files. They won't open even if I right click on them and select "open". I tried dragging/dropping them back into Thunderbird, which does not work. I am not sure if these are copies or if I've moved the messages

I've obviously made a mistake. Is there a way to un-do it? Or, is there a way to read these emails? Thanks

When I try to read a newspaper I cannot open the individual articles, this happened a while ago and I read on the help line how to reset firefox which got most of the sites working since then it has slowly gone back to how it was I can opn about 50% now and do not want to reset firefox as it causes problems in other areas. If I use google I can open all the sites no problem, the other problem I have is if I try to submit a comment to the daily mail is says I have submited but it never appears on the page or in my profile. I am not a complete techy but generally can find my way around with a bit of help.

How to restore tabs of Developer Tools' Inspector pane after they mysteriously disappear?

I initially thought this was a UX issue, but it appears it may be a straight up bug; I wanted to ask here first before I report and assess if others are observing it. Regardless, its a pretty horrible problem either way making web development with Firefox an incredibly frustrating experience, to say the least.

Essentially, the problem is this: sometimes, seemingly at random, when I click a tab in the Developer Tools "Inspector" pane (Rules, Layout, etc) the entire inspector pane (aside from the DOM) will just vanish. I have repro'd it with the dark theme and with the pane docked to the right, but its been difficult to get it to repro in other conditions (clean profile, light theme, etc) since there is no obvious consistency in whether it occurs or not; sometimes it won't happen at all for a while, and sometimes it happens every other time I click a tab.

When it does happen, I've tried everything I can think of but I can find no way to restore the tabs, even by reloading the page, closing the developer tools, switching between panes, switching between DOM elements, trying every option I can think of, etc. except by closing the entire browser tab and opening another. Its infuriating. to say the least, and significant hit to my productivity in Firefox. Any ideas?

The "upload images" feature of this page appears broken, as it gets endlessly stuck on "Uploading..." (not to mention primitive—you can't just copy and paste them directly into post like any modern site), and there isn't any obvious support for Markdown (maybe there is, but it isn't exposed anywhere), so I'll just do things the archaic way and post links to screenshots of the problem on imgur:

This is in the chatango PM or private message section. I believe this history is actually locally saved to my PC, but I don't believe its an open text file. As the question states upgrading past V63.0.3 prevents the storing so I can't read any previous messages. https://www.chatango.com/ < This is where the individual chat groups are created.

I always turn off all kinds of url suggestion except bookmark. After updating to Firefox 63.0b14, one extra entry (with "Visit" in the righthand side) appears in the suggestion list. Unfortunately it can't be turned off via preference setting. I managed to turn it off by setting browser.urlbar.autofill to false.

It's suspicious that where the url autofilled comes from, I NEVER save any browsing history, I NEVER use firefox account to sync anything. I don't have time to read the source code but I doubt Firefox does preserve history secretly.

In Firefox 63, when the Most Recently Used tab switching is selected, and when using it by Ctrl-Tab, there is an overlay and I need to press Enter to apply.

Is it possible to remove the preview? (There no such thing like browser.ctrlTab.previews in about:config) Or why I need to press Enter?
