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?!?!?!

I have Tweetdeck in a pinned tab. There are a lot of columns, which I navigate by swiping left/right on my Magic Mouse. When I swipe to the left, to return to the first column, it often swipes a little bit too far and Firefox interprets that as a request to "back arrow" to the previous page, which is my Firefox home screen.

Is there any way to disable this behavior, so that a long left swipe will move the screen all the way to the left edge and stop there, without going all the way back to the Firefox home screen?

I have Firefox sync on three computers, has worked flawlessly for years, yesterday had to reinstall Windows 10 Pro and all the software that I use, after installing Firefox on this machine by the way it installed the latest version which happened to be Firefox 79. I signed into sync as usual because this is not the first time I've had to do this over the last few years actually about two months ago I did the exact same thing to another computer with no issues on the same account. This time however sync did everything except for all my add ins after waiting, trying to find solutions online etc. etc. gave up, but gave it 24 hours more to try to figure out what was going on. Ran across a few articles that Firefox 79 change something with sync but don't understand exactly what they're talking about why this would affect this installation, so I then looked at the versions installed on each system, my main system is running Firefox 78 or I should say was running Firefox 78 I thought upgrading it to 79 would fix the issue so I did and that did not work. in the meantime I proceeded to uninstall Firefox 79 on the second machine that refuses to sync the add-ons and replace it with Firefox 78, during this process I removed all Firefox entries related to profiles installs updates etc. I tried to wipe every mention of Firefox on the machine as if it never have Firefox installed on it before. Installed 78 signed in to sink expecting everything to work as normal and still nothing it's been two hours since the install I have re-synced multiple times in hopes of getting it to work with no success it appears to sync everything but the add-ons, and yes I have add-ons on the sync list on all computers have double triple and quadruple checked that to make sure . I really don't want to have to manually run from computer to computer to figure out what add-ons I have and all the settings of each one to make it perfect because I have had issues in the past of installing an add-on on one machine and the settings being different on another causing issues between the add-ons would appreciate if somebody could tell me how why or what the hell I'm supposed to do here to make Firefox think actually work again the way it had worked for years I really need these computers identical in every way as i am disabled and have mobility issues such related to all be installing and uninstalling. Thanks for your help in this matter and I'll do my best to answer any questions to help you guys figure this out. Also I'm not even remotely familiar how to file bug reports or anything else so somebody wants to suggest that I would appreciated if they are able to do it on my behalf and I will give them all the information so it's done properly. Thanks againI just noticed that there's troubleshooting information able to be shared this information is being shared from the computer that works absolutely perfect and is the computer I want to sync from below if somebody wants to explain to me how I can get that data and add it to this post so you guys can compare and figure out what the heck the problem is I will do it.

Hello,

I'm expriencing this issue since a few days :

The images in the selected tab (the page I'm reading/scrolling into) don't preload anymore. A few days ago, when everything was fine, I was able to scroll through long pages and all the images were already displayed. Now, whenever I scroll down, the images appear with half a second delay. Once everything has been loaded/displayed once, I can scroll through the page with all the images displayed correctly so I guess this is a matter of Firefox not preloading what's not currently displayed even though it's in the currently read page.

Does anyone know how to fix this please?

Thank you a lot for reading.

Hi

Ok so it use to be when I would select a file like say a PDF to download I would get a pop up (Still do and set that way to ask what I desire to do with the file) and there were 2 choices

Open with (Select program to open with) Save to

But I noticed this tonight now I have a 3rd option on top that is

Open in Firefox

No matter what I try it always reverts back now to OPEN IN FIREFOX for each file where as before it use to remember the last option I had selected which is what I prefer as usually I want to save the file rather then open it.

Is there any way to force firefox to remember the last choice I made rather then reverting all the time to open in firefox like it is doing right now?

Posted comments on a blog (specifically Mail Online Peter Hitchen' Blog) frequently, but not always, fail to appear. Moderation can be excluded on the evidence that repeating the same comment later will sometimes succeed. Other people are clearly affected since there are sometimes complaints. I have the impression that comments made during 'office hours' are more likely to get through, but this by no means guarantees success. The problem seems to have got worse lately, though it was occassionaly evident from the beginning (3 or 4 months ago when I started to contribute).

 This could of course be entirely the fault of the blog side of the intercourse, but is there anything I can do on the hither side, as a user of Firefox, to mitigate or solve this problem?

After upgrading to firefox 79.0 for 32-bit debian linux (from firefox 78.0.2), I've noticed firefox now goes away when the PC is put to sleep and see this error message in logs (1 msg/tab):

   Exiting due to channel error.

Putting my PC to sleep means withdrawing the default route (so only devices on my local network are accessible) and running a screensaver.

Are there any suggestions for fixing this (minor) annoyance? It never happened with the previous firefox 78.0.2.

thanks!

I have just had latest update install for mozilla firefox. Now my screen is breaking up into black rectangles and is not rendering properly. I had this problem but last update seem to fix it. I can't tell you how utterlydepressing this is. I don't have any knowledge to fix it and if it goes back to how it was permanently then, much as I love firefox I'm dumping it. Unless there is a solution. It would be nice to roll back the update and also choose not to install any in future. god's teeth I'm on windows 10 if that makes a difference.

When using voice.google.com in Firefox the recipient can't hear me at all. This problem is intermittent. After I've restarted my Mac, things seem to work fine for a while. Then, after a while, the recipient can't hear me when I make a call.

I've given Firefox permission for google to use the internal microphone. The mic symbol flashes red. Another issue: the flashing red mic keeps flashing even after the phone call is ended.

I've tried clearing out cookies/cache, closing/reopening the page, closing/reopening the browser.

I've tried google voice in Chrome. I was not mute in that call. Thanks for any help.

So I'm using Firefox Browser Developer edition.

Ever since it updated to version 80.0b1 (64-bit), the dialog kind of pop-ups or tooltips or however they're called, are not showing properly, on sites like Facebook and other forums I use.

As you can see in the image, if you're typing on the text field, when you click the Emote / Emoji button, the pop-up window should be shown right below the text field, however ever since the update, they appear at the top of the page, making it impossible to use if the post I'm commenting on is deeper in the page.

It's really annoying, and that's just an example, but there are many other dialog kind of windows that are behaving similarly.

Deactivating add-ons didn't help.

This wasn't a problem before the update. Is this gonna get fixed? What is affecting its proper behavior? I'd appreciate any help.

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?
