As the title indicates, copy/pasting does not work.

I'm on Windows 10, have installed Firefox about two days ago (I've recently switched to it) so the version of FF is up to date. I've looked up a few fixes before posting and they didn't work:

- Tried booting FF on safe mode and it didn't fix the issue - it clearly isn't caused by an add-on (and I've never had this issue in my previous browser with nearly the same add-ons installed). - other people seem to have had the exact same issue multiple times and it's lasted for years, so it's clearly a problem on FF's end.

Here is the issue described more specifically: Copying things from a tab from FF and into the online version of Word does not work - when I try to, the intended selection: - disappears a few seconds after I've pasted - or it does not appear at all - or when it does, it erases the entire sentence it was pasted next to it, which you can imagine is absolutely bothersome.

I've also tried to copy/paste statistics from a site called archiveofourown.org onto another FF tab. - What ended up being copied is only the last character of the entire content I was trying to paste, which I think suggests there's some issue with what's contained in the clipboard.

I'm mentioning these two websites because I'm guessing that something about them is probably conflicting with the copy/paste feature, however I'm hoping no one will have the gall to tell me it's those websites' faults and that I should just stop using them.

When pasting (while having hopefully copied the former selected content- and no, it wasn't the case), it always pastes the content which was last copied into the clipboard prior to that very attempt, which shows that the clipboard's content was not refreshed with the last selected copied one.

I'm surprised to see that FF has had such a glaring issue for years and for many other users, and updates have never given a fix for it. I'd like this issue to be fixed properly, because I'd hate to have to switch back to my previous browser. FF sports so many nice features that other browsers don't have, and it'd be a shame to ruin the experience with a bug so basic as the copy/paste feature being broken.

Trying to set up HTML5 peer-peer video conferencing. Its working on Chrome but not Firefox. I have looked at all the available solutions. I have reinstalled firefox; I have checked that media.windows.foundation is set to "true"; I have checked in "safe mode".

This challenge is an issue which occurs 90% of the time. I have yet to assess what conditions occur when html5 video is finally displayed. I can only say that display only occurrred once today and that was when I first inspected the site this morning.

This situation is occurring both in Firefox and the developer edition. Firefox is latest edition and there are no plugins

Any suggestions?

I asked a similar question on Reddit here and now I’m quite sure that the plugin is the Widevine plugin.

I tried everything I’ve been suggested but still I can’t solve this issue.

Does anyone have any other tips? Thanks

When I open Firefox then go to bookmarks and select a site, they open as expected. However, when I go to my emails bookmark and click on it, the screen refreshs but does not change. In order to open my emails I have to click on the bookmark a second time, then it opens as it should. The exception to this is that if I go to any other bookmarked site first then from that site, go to and click on the emails bookmark, it opens normally at the first click.

I've tried refreshing Firefox as per the instructions but that didn't fix the problem. This seems to have started after Firefox updated itself the last time. I have made no changes to my Firefox settings so I'm not sure as to why this glitch is suddenly surfaced.

Hi Forum Folke,

Trying to make a purchase from Steam; click, click, click, get to the payment page, where I select "PayPal" as the method of payment. Get another screen that confirms proceed with PayPal; I click on "OK," and nothing happens. What's *supposed* to happen is a little popup window should open up with the PayPal login, I log in, wade through the selections, and make the payment. What *actually* happens is nothing at all. Click on "OK," and there's this "blink" and that's it. No other change to the page I'm looking at, no PayPal, no nothing... and if I persist in trying, Steam gets all uppity and tells me I've been trying to make too many purchases, try again later. Chrome handles the above scenario without any problem whatever, so the problem is not with Steam, it's with FireFox. Where should I be looking or what should I be looking for that might be preventing FireFox from doing what it should be doing? Thanks... I'm not sure what system info you need to diagnose this issue; if you'll let me know I'll be happy to dig it up and provide it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I can rule out my anti-virus, as again, it lets Chrome do it without problem... just not Firefox. For what that's worth....
