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.

I am building a website and, for the last couple of days, when I make changes to the CSS file they are no longer being picked up by the browser by which I mean they aren't displayed in the web page nor in the developer tools inspector.

They are visible in Chromium browser and dev tools.

I have cleared the cache and refreshed the page to no avail. It is only when I restart the browser that the new style rules take effect in the browser and show up in the dev tools.

I was cleaning out my hard drive and deleting old installs of Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable packages, and I almost certainly deleted the one that Firefox relies on.

I then attempted to start Firefox, getting the error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem."

I uninstalled, following the clean install directions, and deleting the "Program Files/Mozilla Firefox/" directory.

Then, I ran the Firefox Installer, newly downloaded, and when running it, it gives the same error, "The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem." Selecting "Restore Defaults" has no effect either way. The installer then appears to complete in the background, and the Firefox directory is created, along with the executable.

When I run Firefox.exe, it seems to load the program, but any address I type in fails to begin loading. This includes websites (www.google.com) and help/utility pages (about:config). I'm therefore unable to change any settings within Firefox.

I then tried re-installing the "Visual C++ 2008" and "Visual C++ 2015-2019" packages in an attempt to restore that DLL, but that had no effect after repeating the same steps above (clean uninstall, re-install). Which VC++ Redist Package should I be re-installing? Ideally, I should be able to just get a copy of VCRUNTIME140_1.dll and place it where Firefox is looking for it.

I am trying to emulate the expected behavior I have from Chromium based browsers. I want my two email accounts to open on startup but then when I open a new window, for just the blank tab to open (Firefox home). There doesn't seem to be a way to do that. I can make them my "home" pages so that they load on startup, but then when I open a new window, it opens both of my home pages as tabs in that new window. Any help? See attached screenshot, is there something I'm missing or is this behavior just not possible in Firefox?

EVERY TIME I open Firefox I immediately get an ad asking me to download MS Edge. This occurs even when Edge is not open. 1.

I have turned off all the suggested fixes in the “Settings/Options” for both Firefox and Edge but without success. Is there any way to block these irritating pop-ups?

Hello and thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

For many years, I have had trouble with the rendering of https://www.chase.com/ in my Win10 Firefox install (see attached). This does NOT happen in my wife's install. I have been a user for a long, long time and this has persisted even through the update to 79.0 today. On the same machine, it renders fine in Chrome (see other attached).

As I said, the problem does not happen on my wife's computer and since it works in Chrome on the same computer I know this must be something wrong with my Firefox install. I have tried running with --safe-mode and the problem persists. I have repeatedly cleared site data/cookies and even the entire Firefox cache. The problem persists.

While I suspect there is still something hanging around in my profile that is causing this, I don't know what it is and I am loathe to erase my entire profile and start anew.

Any suggestions on how to get to the bottom of this mystery?

Thanks

I take my privacy very seriously and have disabled a large number of Firefox features which erode my privacy, including geo.enabled, dom.event.clipboardevents.enabled, dom.battery.enabled, and many more.

Today I've just found a setting I've never noticed before which makes me really nervous: geo.provider.ms-windows-location

Can anyone please tell me what this does? Is it new? Why doesn't Mozilla have a page/resource explaining what all the preferences do and how to use them?

This cussed thing pops up every time I fire up my desktop PC which runs Windows 10. It gives me two choices. 1. To click on sentence that says something like, "Continue without supporting ads" or 2. To go through a long process to shut down Ad Block so they can fill up my CNBC pages with ads about crap that I will never buy online.

Help! I want to get rid of that pop up permanently!

I am running with firefox 79.0 and am using ubuntu 18.04

I have been using google hangouts for some time with no problems but, now, it will no longer work. It tells me that I have a problem with my camera/video and to check my network. My network is dandy. The only thing I could think of is that its a firefox problem. To check that I brought up google chrome and tried hangouts there and it worked just fine.

I have searched for a solution and found none although there has been an ongoing problem with hangouts for some time.. I suspect that some of the stuff that has been added to firefox to be the culprit but am not sure - hence this.

If anybody has a clue please let me know - thank you!
