Through the years (been using FF since its first months) on various computers, various OS and FF versions, I've kept a bunch of bookmarks in my toolbar for frequently used links that I can QUICKLY "right-click, copy link, paste" (3 steps) into social media posts.

Tonight I opened up my bookmark contextual menu, hit copy, pasted it into my Twitter, and it pasted the title instead of the link!!

How useless is that! A title is easy to type out, a long complex url isn't, having a "copy" (title) instead of the "copy link" is entirely useless!

Now to accomplish same, I have go choose "edit" instead of "copy link" and then "click drag" the url then "copy" then "paste" then close the window. 5+ steps instead of 3. Who on Earth thought changing that function was a good idea?! More steps is NEVER a good direction.

IOS: 12.6.3 Firefox 102.9.0esr macbook rebooted cached cleared

Clarification coming from possible answers: Firefox's "Paste" function is working fine, since the url correctly pastes to Mac PAGES and Facebook. It's the paste to Twitter that does "Title" instead of "url". So obviously a Firefox-Twitter problem.

Variation of problem: I tried "Copy" from Firefox Bookmark Subemnu, then went over to Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" to Twitter on Chrome also results in a paste of Title instead of url. I tried "Copy" from Chrome Bookmark Submenu, then paste into Twitter on Chrome, and the "Paste" correctly pastes the url. This points to a mis-programming of the Firefox "Copy" function in the bookmark submenu.

I'm wondering if disabling the automatic updates for Extensions/Add-ons we get any notification when an update is available, without going in the Settings where the Add-ons are listed.

Will I get any notification or indication while browsing that an Extension/Add-on has a new update, if I disable the automatic updates?

I am trying to setup my firefox so that all the cookies and cache are deleted when I close my browser, except for cookies and cache for a select few sites [so I do not have to keep logging into my email account]. However, despite the fact that i have created an exception for my email provider with the status of `allow`, I still have to keep logging into my email account whenever I open firefox on my mac.

Prior to installing the most recent update (today), when I clicked on "file" at the top of my screen, I was given the option to open a new window (or private window). I can no longer do that. Instead, I have to open a new tap within the window I have open (generally, my email). How can I restore this? Thank you.
