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.

For the past few days, Firefox has been extremely slow to load pages at startup. The browser itself launches pretty much instantly, but it's taking over six minutes after that just to look up domains. At some point it gets past whatever hiccup is holding things up and browsing works for the rest of the session -- noticeably slower than usual, but usable.

It happens with add-ons disabled, after multiple refreshes, and even after a full reinstall (with new profile). I've played with all the common suspects -- disabling accessibility options, hardware acceleration, IPv6, etc. I closed my pinned tabs and disabled auto-restoring the previous session. I even disabled Avast and MalwareBytes. Nothing has helped so far (which is seriously disappointing, considering the 6-minute restart between each change!)

The odd thing is that there are a few seconds, immediately after startup, where things seem to work normally. If I'm quick, I can sometimes get most of one webpage to load before the problem begins.

I've been a Firefox power user since version 0.6.2 and never encountered anything like this. I'm very comfortable with changing settings, configuration files, etc., and am willing to try just about anything to get things cranking again. But right now I'm simply out of other ideas to try.

Using 61.0.2, 64-bit version on fully-patched Windows 10 on a very fast fiber connection. <edit> I also tried the 32-bit version; no joy. </edit>

My laptop has limited RAM - about 2GB. Of the browsers I've tried (Chrome, Safari, Firefox), Firefox uses the least RAM, but it still uses around 1GB of RAM to display about 10 tabs (gmail, facebook, reader, and assorted other websites) - this seems insanely high.

Thinking back, this didn't seem to be a problem "back in the day", so to speak, so I tried installing Firefox 3.6 again.

Lo and behold, with the same addons and the same tabs open, Firefox 3.6 is using 300MB of RAM where Firefox 21 used 980MB of RAM. In addition, navigation is noticeably snappier in Firefox 3.6 - probably because it doesn't have to page to disk as often (which would often lock up my computer using Firefox 21).

I thought that newer versions were supposed to improve memory performance, not triple the required memory...

I'm running Firefox 59.0.2 64-bit on my PC. I have extensions for AdBlock, Honey, and LastPass. In addition to the two plug-ins provided by Mozilla in this version of Firefox, I have added Flash Player (re-installed several times).

I can't see ANY videos at all. No YouTube, no types of video at all.

I've refreshed my Firefox totally (and don't want to do that again any time soon!).

I've looked at "solutions" provided online, and nothing has worked.

Will someone give me the exact setup that should allow me to watch videos? Right now, when they come up, I get a spinning circle until finally some type of error message appears. The error message differs depending on where I'm watching the video. For example, If I'm trying to watch a YouTube video, I see the still picture that accompanies the video. When I click on the "play" arrow, I get: "An error occurred. Please try again later. Playback ID: pcGJXEDjuz-BRuBz" If I try to watch something on, say, the Weather Channel site, I first see the still picture. When I click to "play", I see a black screen with a small blue square in the center with the Weather Channel logo.

I did have a big Microsoft update a few nights ago, but I have no idea what changed there.

Bottom line: I have no idea what has happened to my video. What has changed since Firefox 58?

How to stop Firefox from redirecting me to https on my internal webserver

So, this is different than all the other redirecting issues that I've read about so far.

The scenario:

I am an admin who has an internal, LAN-only webserver. It is serving up half a dozen web servers running on various ports for various reasons. E.g., Ticketing system on port 8080, an Apache-based Wiki on port 80, Nginx-based GitLab on 443 (the only https site!), etc. etc.

If I open the wiki and browse around, everything works great. If I open a new tab and go to Gitlab on 443, everything works great. However, as soon as I go back to the wiki and click a link (or just hit refresh), it takes me to the Gitlab error page, because it stuck an 's' on the http://webserver/wiki.php URL, and now Gitlab is trying to serve up an invalid URL at https://webserver/wiki.php.

Even though Gitlab is an internal webserver with a self-signed cert, the CA cert has been imported into Firefox so I get the green lock icon.

Troubleshooting / What doesn't work:

- The intranet page doesn't end in .dev or .foo, so it's not trying to load Google's website at that TLD. - Changing any settings in about:config doesn't help (at least none of the settings that can be found in the first few pages of a Google search). - Deleting my entire Firefox profile doesn't change anything - Running in Private Browsing / Purple screen doesn't change anything (when loading both websites in the same "mode" - see below). - I have checked the wiki webserver for any extraneous .htaccess files with URL redirects. - I have checked the wiki httpd.conf file(s) for any https redirects - There are no addons installed - Currently running version 60.2.2 ESR. I will try to upgrade to 60.4.0 ESR ASAP. This behavior does NOT happen with 52.x ESR.

What DOES work, albeit temporarily:

If I go into Preferences -> Clear History -> select the 'Site Preferences' setting, then the wiki will load and I can click around. However, the moment I go back to Gitlab and click on a link or refresh, the next URL I click on in the wiki will attempt to load a https version, Gitlab's webservice at port 443 takes over, and I get a 404. Go back to Preferences and delete the site preferences, and the cycle repeats.

This behavior also exists in Private Browsing mode with both sites either in two tabs or separate Private Browsing windows.

What works "permanently":

If I open the wiki in Regular Browsing mode and Gitlab in Private Browsing mode (or vice versa), I can access each website simultaneously in their respective windows. No https redirect occurs.

My conclusion:

As soon as I go to Gitlab, some Site Preferences setting gets saved that insists on redirecting all URLs at that domain to https. This site setting gets re-added at every web page invocation/reload, as demonstrated by deleting the Site Preferences and watching the behavior start up again on a refresh.

Site Preferences are shared among tabs in both Regular Browsing and Private Browsing, but they aren't shared BETWEEN Regular and Private browsing. This is immaterial to the issue at hand, just an interesting observation.

This problem started between versions 52 and 60.

I don't know how site preferences are saved. This could be a GitLab problem (generating these site preferences), but then why does v52 work fine...
