Why can't Firefox copy text to the clipboard anymore? It won't copy text from a web page, from a URL, or even from about:support "Copy text to clipboard"!!! I'm using version 1.22 64 bit on windows 11. I've reinstalled Firefox but it doesn't make a difference. I've tried "Troubleshoot Mode" and it's still broken!!!

I can paste into Firefox but something has broken copy!

How can I set tabs to automatically preload when I open the browser? I'm just trying to switch from Chrome to Firefox and I can't find such a setting here, although it is a very convenient functionality. I mean that when I open the browser, I can click on any of the tabs and it will be (partially or completely) immediately ready to work without additional loading.

Any news on this?

Firefox is my default browser, but it does not allow me to log in to specific websites. For example, ihg.com, when I click the sign in button nothing happens, I just have a little note at the bottom left "javascript:void(0);" Another example, dutchcrafters.com , when I click Log in with Gmail, nothing happens.

I have tried removing all the content blocking extensions (privacy badgers, ublock origin, etc.), did not fix it. I have tried a firefox refresh, did not fix it. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling firefox with several device restarts, did not fix it.

I know this must be a firefox specific problem because microsoft edge work perfectly for both of these examples. Any other suggestions to fix this firefox issue?

Hi,

I wish to provide a co worker with access to some websites (and provide the site passwords), this will involve - from what I can see setting up a separate FF profile (that we both sync to - by using a Firefox Account) on my PC, somehow copying the bookmarks and passwords from my general profile into a new 'co worker' profile, the co worker (via sync) would then see the bookmark, and then hopefully also have the password available.

I can see how to export/import all my bookmarks, or have her sync to my 'general' FF account quite easily, but I only want to give her access to work related bookmarks and PWds.

Any thoughts appreciated.

I have Firefox as my default browser instead of Microsoft Edge on my HP laptop. I've tried everything under the sun to make Google my default search engine over Microsoft Bing, and no matter what it won't stop rerouting me to Bing. I can go to www.google.com and type directly in the search bar and it STILL reroutes me to Bing, even when my settings list Google as my default search engine of the search bar. Can I block Bing as a website altogether? HP support only offered to connect me with a specialized team that costs money. Please help.

So I've been doing this for years now, as a Youtuber I take an image file from File Explorer (Windows 10) and drag it over to upload the thumbnail to Youtube. But for some reason the last few days I can't drop the file, it just stays there with the mouse when I let go of the button. On a random page it should let me drop the file and show the image but it doesn't, and it also won't drop if I try a google image search.

I have tried this on Edge and Chrome and the problem only seems to exist on Firefox.

[My screenshot button hides the mouse in pictures but it's attached to that blue semi-transparent square, trying to drop a file but can't.]

I wish you would stop carrying articles from sources that do not allow pocket subscribers to read them without an individual subscription to the article source. One notable example is the New York Times. it is not possible to read an article from them because when someone clicks on the article of interest, it is not visible unless that person signs up for a subscription to the NYT. So, for all of your readers who like to peruse interesting and thought provoking articles, but do not wish to sign up for multiple subscriptions, why even carry articles from sources that cannot be read to start with? this is VERY annoying! Thanks.

PDFs are shown as empty pages after suspend/resume on linux

Hello, I'm using a document management system (SeedDMS for those who know) through Firefox 122.0.1 (64-bit, canonical 1.0, downloaded from packages.ubuntu.com for focal, … (funda kabanzi)

Hello, I'm using a document management system (SeedDMS for those who know) through Firefox 122.0.1 (64-bit, canonical 1.0, downloaded from packages.ubuntu.com for focal, running on Debian Bookworm, kernel 6.1.0-17-amd64/Debian 6.1.69-1 x86_64, X.Org X Server 1.21.1.7, KDE Plasma 5.27.5, KDE Framework 5.103.0, QT 5.15.8, i7-5820K, GeForce GTX 1070).

Within this document management system pdf.js (v4.0.379) is being used to preview/view PDF Documents. After starting Firefox the PDF view inside the DMS works fine until I suspend (to memory) and resume my machine. Regular HTML-content looks fine but the resumed DMS session shows only blank (all white) Pages inside the PDF view. Changing to a different PDF file doesn't help. The number and size of these pages is presented correctly. I can even select and copy (invisible) text from these blank PDF pages. The problem applies to all PDFs, whether they're single or multi paged, have images inside them (like with PDFs from a scanner) or not, etc. Reloading the page/closing reopening the affected browser window doesn't help, i.e. the problem persists.

I recently found out, that this also applies to PDF files directly opened inside Firefox (which also seems to use pdf.js as a PDF viewer), that is, this is not related to a specific site like my DMS.

The problem always persists until I kill Firefox and start it over.

Pdf.js seems to use a canvas inside a div (see screenshots attached) to draw the visual PDF content and another div to make the text layer selectable/searchable etc. I don't know what's happening to canvases on a system suspend/resume cycle in Firefox on Linux, but I suspect that's where the problem originates from.

This problem already affected older versions of Firefox and pdf.js.

Please let me know, if you need further information from my side to investigate that issue.

Thanks a lot!
