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.

Hello, My email web browser was "upgraded" recently. With the new version there is a problem when I'm writing new emails when on Firefox - if I hit the return key to start typing a new paragraph, no text comes up. I either have to a) hit return twice, start the new paragraph and then go back to delete the extra empty line or b) type the first letter of the new paragraph on the original line and then go back in front of the first character before hitting return to start the new line. Some other users have found the same thing, and we have found that it doesn't happen on Edge (perhaps others too) and we have been told that it is a problem with Firefox. Has anyone got a solution please? Thanks for your help.

So I rested my Windows 10 yesterday and I reinstalled Firefox which I was fine with because I had enabled Sync. It was fine except my history was not restored at all. All my bookmarks and passwords were fine and there was not a loss of data in those two. Now, I found my old Firefox profile (I'm guessing it is the old one) in the Windows.old folder and I have a new profile now (obviously). Is there a way to retrieve the history from the old profile? Also, does the Sync feature not sync the browser history?

Can you tell me how to permanently remove Search with Google or Search with Amazon from the suggestions. Thank you.

Hi, I am running the french FF 79.0 64 bit I just started to download the latest iso of debian 10.5 from the official Mirror and got the FF warning that it contains a virus. I am not sure if you have a team to check false positive as this is the official site and that it was released only yesterday https://cdimage.debian.org/debian-cd/current/amd64/iso-dvd/debian-10.5.0-amd64-DVD-1.iso and I am getting worried after I got this message.

This function worked until a week ago, and still works perfectly on my laptop. It also works fine in Edge and IE. My homepage, My.Yahoo.Com is personalized with several content boxes, one of which is "Today" (news). Firefox either won't load the content, or it won't work properly (scrolling, etc.). I can no longer preview the individual news headlines. However, if I remove the non working content box and then add the it back, it works fine. Once I leave the page and then return, the same problem returns. My system is a desktop with WIN10 Pro 64-bit, 16gb, all latest updates, and Firefox v79.0.

With the latest update to 77.0.1 the the little urlbar drop down is gone again. I use this all the time and there are usually 20 or sites I go to that it was nice to have quick access to those urls. How can I restore it with the latest version of Firefox, the previous fixes that were posted do not work any more.

Hello, I'd like to open url links clicked from any program in a private tab. Firefox is my default browser. Links open in new tab, which is okay. I browse in private mode all of the time, but clicking links opens in normal tab, then it cashes the content, cashes history etc. Most of the stuff (from for example discord) is a one time thing, silly and probably even useless stuff.

Is there a possible way to force windows10 to use "firefox.exe -private" as the default handler to open firefox ? I don't really mind if it opens a new window instead of new tab as long as it remains private.

Thank You for Your time.
