I am going crazy as I have somehow lost the ability to copy and paste anything from a Firefox window or address bar into another document ie... email, word, text edit, atom—nothing.

I have tried the About:config solution to no avail. Sometimes the copy and paste will work for a minute or so when opening Firefox, but it quickly degrades.

I have looked into settings for the browser as well and I can't find anything that would affect copy and paste. This change seemed to have happen a few weeks ago with an update that was released.

What is happening?!?!?!

This one thing makes we simply switch to a different browser. Firefox, downloads and installs updates in the background. OK. It needs a browser restart to be able to setup the update. Not great but OK. But suddenly it would completely disable the user from not using the browser until an update is performed (See Image). But why? Not OK!

I am totally fine with the browser needing a restart to finish update. But why wouldn't Firefox not let me decide when I want that. Until I am ready let me use the browser. I really wish they don't freeze the browser like that.

Is there someone looking to address this issue in a future version? Is this only happening to me?

When I open a new window (private or not) from taskbar right-click menu on firefox icon it opens but the window is inactive (when I try to write text or press a hotkey it just doesn't work until I click on the newly opened window and do it again). For me it looks like the active window is "taskbar" but I'm pretty sure it's a problem with firefox because I've never seen this happening to other apps. Maybe there is a hidden option or something that I have to enable?

I deleted a Firefox profile while troubleshooting a selenium/geckodriver issue. Doing so deleted many unrelated folders and files, but long story short my Python folder was obliterated but for a single file called vcruntime140_1.dll. It also rendered Firefox unusable.

I reinstalled Firefox with no success. I tried the refresh option from the installer instead — no success. I deleted everything I could find in regedit and my C: drive (no clue why several folders are left behind after uninstalling...). Re-install still failed: during all attempts I could open a Firefox window but I couldn't do anything within.

On a hunch I went into my recycling bin and restored the vcruntime140_1.dll that I had deleted, and Firefox started working again. I moved it from my Python folder (cause surely it doesn't belong there, apparently it's a Microsoft file) and Firefox stopped working...

I want to know where this .dll actually belongs, and if possible I would like to know a way to obliterate Firefox from my PC. Uninstalling should accomplish that, but sadly does not. Any other advice/commentary is welcome.

A couple of years ago I posted a query regarding not being able to open pages saved in maff format (of which I have literally hundreds saved). I solved the problem by installing an extended release version of Firefox, 52.7.4, which still supported the maff extension. Et voilà, all my maff files now open.

I have held onto my old XP machine because I have a boatload of legacy graphic programs which I do not want to spend the hundreds of dollars to upgrade to Windows 7 or 10 versions. Recently someone gave me an XP machine which is newer and has a much better processor than my own.

So I figured if I just install Firefox_ESR_52.7.4 I would easily be able to open those maff files I wish to store on the (new) XP machine.

Curious thing, the only version I could find to download Firefox_ESR_52.7.4 came in a zip file with no installer. I mention this because I'm wondering whether it may not be the cause of the fact that I cannot get this version of Firefox to open files with the maff extension. I right-click the file to "Open With" and select Firefox from the list, but it then simply goes into an infinite loop of showing me the Open With dialog box. I even put Firefox.exe into the Send To folder, and the exact same thing happens.

When I downloaded Firefox_ESR_52.7.4 for my Windows 7 machine, it did come with an installer, but I cannot use it for the XP machine because it is the 64-bit version. And for the life of me I cannot find anywhere to download ESR_52.7.4 with an installer.

Anybody out there who could shed some light on this problem?

Thanks,

Dandelion

P.S.: I tried to post this question using Firefox (my extended release version) but after signing in, the page just hangs... and hangs. I suppose this is because I'm using a version of Firefox which Mozilla deems unacceptably outdated. But my argument has been and always will be that there are extensions I cannot live without, so as long as the newer versions of Firefox do not support those extensions, tant pis. I use Chrome 95% of the time.

Hi,

I have come across this answer as to why youtube page gets randomly updated: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1246764#question-reply

After checking all my settings, I couldn't find any add on or extension containing "high-definition" words in it. My only extention in firefox is ublock origin.

Any idea why the updates continue to take place? Can ublock origin cause it? Or has there been a browser update that could cause it?

Many thanks in advance,

I realize this may be trivial, but I like it when things work the way they're supposed to. The Google calendar favicon has a number in it that is supposed to be today's date. It is never correct. The calendar itself is correct, but not the favicon. See attached screenshot. Today is the 28th, which the calendar correctly says, but the favicon says '14.' I tried it in Chrome, and it works correctly. So, there may be something FF (78) or one of my add-ons that is blocking that information. How do I track it down and correct it?

I am using Outlook.com (aka Outlook webmail, Hotmail) and the spell-check option no longer works. I write in multiple languages and have always had the option to access the drop-down menu to choose the language from the dictionaries that I have downloaded and/or chose the correct spelling of the word. This drop-down menu no longer appears.

I have reset Firefox to default settings. I then reinstalled the dictionaries that I used. I have also used Fred McD's suggestion:

Type about:config<enter> in the address bar. If a warning screen comes up, press the I Accept the Risk button. At the top of the screen is a search bar.

Type: layout.spellcheckDefault Its values are; 0 Spell Checker Off 1 Check Only Multi-Line Input Boxes. 2 Check Multi And Single Line Input Boxes.

Nothing worked.

I went to send feedback from the Outlook.com feedback icon to the right of the e-mail page and spell-check was working there. It does not work, though, within the body of the e-mail. I spent two hours with Microsoft tech support by chat and they were not able to fix this problem.

The red squiggly line appears here now as I type (and most everywhere else except Outlook.com) and I am able to access the drop-down spelling menu.

It seems like there needs to be a technical resolution between Microsoft and Mozilla Firefox.

Thanks for any help.
