After Firefox has been open more than a few minutes, usually with at least two or three windows and/or tabs open, when I try to type accented characters (á, é, í, ó, ú Á É Í Ó Ú) they come out with an extra accent mark preceding the accented letter (´á ´é ´í ´ó ´ú). I usually have a WebWhatsApp window open.

This doesn't happen in other browsers or other programs that take text.

At the same time, the Ctrl+F (for find) function stops working. If I close all of the windows, and attempt to reopen Firefox, I get an error that says that Firefox is still running, and do I want to close it? I say yes, and it closes. And for a short or longer while, the problems go away. Then they come back.


Using Spanish (Mexico) language and Latin American keyboard, with Español (Mexico) language pack installed.

Lenovo Flex 3 -1570 laptop, Windows 10 Home v. 1803 . Updated Firefox Quantum 66.0.5. Had Firefox "optimized" a few times by my Lenovo tech support subscription service. No effect.

Hi,

I live in the Netherlands but I don't speak Dutch. I'm from Sweden and have both Swedish and English as preferred languages. Since I moved here, Firefox changed the language to Dutch. I understand that IP-related issues cannot be solved with firefox (searching for a brand on facebook in one of the languages I know but ending up on the Dutch page) but I really would like to be able to understand my browser. The solution is probably simple - but since everything is in Dutch I can't navigate my way to where I need to make the change. For the last two months I've been using Safari as a result, which I'm not particularly happy about either.

Please help me, and not by guiding me in English on where to go as it will be different in Dutch.

Thanks, Frida

Can Firefox HTTP basic authentication dialog handle non-english user name and password?

Firefox's HTTP basic authentication dialog is encoding non-english user name and passwords incorrectly. Everything works when I enter English user name and password. However, if I input valid user name and/or password with non-english character(s) in them, I cannot login. The authentication fails.

I turned to Fiddler and found that FireFox is sending incorrectly encoded Authorization header. Traces below. If I send correctly encoded Authorization header everything works. The test below uses Chinese characters.

Working scenario using English user name and password:


GET http://myhost:8080/notification/syndication HTTP/1.1 Accept-Language: en-US User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E) Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Connection: Keep-Alive Authorization: Basic dXNlcjE6cGFzc3dvcmQ= Host: myhost:8080


Non-working scenario using non-English character user name and password:


GET http://myhost:8080/notification/syndication HTTP/1.1 Accept-Language: en-US User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/7.0; SLCC2; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.5.30729; .NET CLR 3.0.30729; Media Center PC 6.0; .NET4.0C; .NET4.0E) Accept-Encoding: gzip, deflate Connection: Keep-Alive Authorization: Basic e1UNOnNwc3M= Host: myhost:8080

Note the incorrect Authorization header string product by Firefox code: Authorization: Basic e1UNOnNwc3M=

Correct base64 encoding would have yielded this authorization header instead: Authorization: Basic 55m75b2V5ZCNOnNwc3M=

Is this a bug in Firefox? Perhaps there is a configuration change that I need to make to input non-English user name and password in the basic authentication dialog? Chrome does not have this issue. Internet Explorer has the same problem.

Since FF updated to 60.0.1 (64bit) on linux Mint, the date formatting on some sites has changed from English US (mm/dd/yy) to English Europe (dd/mm/yy). The FF language preference is set to (1) English [en] and (2) English/united States [en-us] (I tried it with the order reversed as well). Going to the same sites on the same machine with Chrome displays US date format. Any ideas?

In English words have to be separated by spaces even if you use them together as composite concept. For example the concept "spelling check" is a composition of spelling and check. In Dutch those words should be spelled without space: "tekstcontrole" is correct, "tekst controle" isn't. The Firefox spell check is only recognizing the separate words (tekst and controle) and is underlining the contraction (tekstcontrole) as incorrect when in fact only the latter is correct. This is not an exception, in fact most sentences have such words, so using the Firefox spelling check in Dutch always results in lots of red lines.

Deleting written character needs one more meaningless deletion

Not like English, in Korean, one single letter is combined with 2 or more characters. Ex) 대 = ㄷ + ㅐ, 한 = ㅎ + ㅏ + ㄴ, 민 = ㅁ + ㅣ + ㄴ, 국 = ㄱ + ㅜ + ㄱ So when you type Korean,… (funda kabanzi)

Not like English, in Korean, one single letter is combined with 2 or more characters. Ex) 대 = ㄷ + ㅐ, 한 = ㅎ + ㅏ + ㄴ, 민 = ㅁ + ㅣ + ㄴ, 국 = ㄱ + ㅜ + ㄱ

So when you type Korean, there're 2 types of character status. 1) Completed letter 2) Uncompleted letter(where the focus of cursor at).

Case 1) has no problem. But in case 2), I need to push delete button one more time at the last remained character.

Ex) [Type ㅎ] : ㅎ [Type ㅏ] : 하 [Type ㄴ] : 한 [Delete]  : 하 (ㄴ removed) [Delete]  : ㅎ (ㅏ removed) [Delete]  : ㅎ (Here's a problem. Nothing changed and ㅎ is still there. [Delete]  : null (Then it's removed)


Seems nothing, but it's very uncomfortable to me.
