How to disable language-aware word selection when double-clicking on text for certain language?

I want to disable the "language-aware word selection when double-clicking on text" feature that shipped in 122.0 (https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/122.0/releasenotes/)

This new feature is cool, but it has actually slowed down the speed at which I select text. Originally, I could double-click to select an entire sentence, but now a double-click only selects a single word.

It would be great if there was a way to disable this feature for a specific language.

Thank you.

I am using Firefox with the uBlock Origin and Cookie AutoDelete extensions enabled. When I try and load Gmail or any other Google site, I get a blank page and nothing loads at all. This only occurs when my VPN is on (I use Private Internet Access). However, even with the VPN on, Chrome will still load those sites. Disabling the VPN means that the sites load normally.

My guess is it might be some sort of privacy setting in Firefox, but I don't understand what it could be. The only thing that breaks/fixes the sites is connecting and disconnecting the VPN, irrespective of which country I try and connect from.

Hello,

I work for Microsoft, and one of our sites offers users a way to opt out of personalized advertising on some Microsoft domains by setting a cookie. The site: https://account.microsoft.com/privacy/ad-settings/signedout

When the user clicks the toggle to Off, we cycle through four domains via an iframe and write a TOptOut cookie on each one. If everything is working properly, the user should then be able to go to www.bing.com and see a TOptOut cookie on Bing that will prevent personalized advertising on that domain.

The problem is, this stopped working in Firefox. We have verified that it still works* in 115.7.0, but in 122.0.1 and 123.0, the cookie is written and then deleted on refresh. If the user doesn't already have Bing open in another tab, they'll never see the cookie at all. I have verified this behavior in Bing several times, on my work machine (Firefox 122.0.1 on Windows 10) and my personal machine (Firefox 122.0 snap on Xubuntu 23.10).

  • It still works on our corporate VPN in 115.7.0, but not on my coworker's non-VPN machine. Same version. I'm really not sure what's up with that one.

This is a large concern for us. Because the cookies can still be written, it doesn't trip our test for third-party cookies being disabled. Because the cookie for microsoft.com is written, the toggle will show up as Off even after a refresh. This is misleading to our users.

I have gone over the Firefox docs on Enhanced Tracking Protection and Total Cookie Protection, but neither seem to handle this case. Firefox does not block any trackers on account.microsoft.com or on www.bing.com. It's fine if the cookies are in separate jars, we just want them to be written to the proper domains and not deleted. Can anyone tell me what changed in Firefox recently? Is this expected behavior, or a bug? If it's expected behavior, what can we do to allow users to opt out of personalized advertising?

Everytime I look up something and it has a map attached to it and I click on the map, I get Google Map or MapQuest and the map is there for 3 seconds and then it looks like the attached picture. So I open up maps in its own tab and type in the address and I get same results. But if I use either of them in edge, I have no problems. I only have Mate Translate on in add ons. So I have no idea what is going on. I reset cache as I had read that from a post (though their issue was similar but not the same) I would appreciate any and all help you can give me. TYIA

I use Firefox 122.0.1 on Windows 11.

When I try to print a .pdf (mainly from gmail), the option for Portrait/Landscape will pop up for a split second, then disappear. I can only print Landscape.

- I've tried changing printers, but still get the same result (no portait option) - When I load gmail on Microsoft Edge, I get the portrait/landscape option as normal. - I changed the layout.css.page-size.enabled option to False, and still get the same result (no portrait option).

This started happening a few months ago, previous to this, everything worked normal.

Does anyone have a fix for this ? thanks

In what scenario would anyone ever want a website to track what they are copying? Why would a browser allow a website to see what you're copying anyway?

Not only that, it takes up precious real-estate in an often already-crowded contextual menu. Why not make it the default action when selecting the normal "Copy Link" contextual menu item?

Hello all,

I've had some recent issues with my Firefox browser. All the Google services (Youtube, search, Gmail, Drive, GMeet) sometimes randomly do not load. The GET request is sent, but there is no answer. All the other websites work perfectly, and when I make the same Google related request via a private window, it (usually) works. So it does not seem to be a connection issue.

This was due to an update to Firefox I did recently. I already encountered that problem after an update end of 2022, and I reverted to an older version to remove the issue (106.0.3). Unfortunately some services don't work with it anymore, so I updated to the most current version (122.0.1 64 bits) thinking that the issue would be fixed. Unlucky for me, the problem came back.

I tried quite a lot of the basic things:

  • Remove all the plugins
  • Remove cache and cookies
  • Uninstall Firefox
  • Restart the computer (Windows 10 by the way)

I saw on a lot of forums pages that what worked for most people was to to set security.tls.enable_0rtt_data = false on the about:config, which I did, but the problem persists. I also noticed that when I reset Firefox, some visuals from Google services will have trouble to load the first few times I go on the page (as shown on the image attached). Not sure if it is relevant though.

Would you have any idea what I could try? My job is primarely focused around the Google Suite, so that is becoming a significantly painful problem to deal with...

Thanks in advance for any help!

I want to use the Ome.tv web site to video chat but it keeps giving me this message:

I've tried everything to get them to work but to no avail. I've also tried editing the settings for my camera and microphone in the Permissions section and that doesn't work, either. Firefox will NOT allow me to add website exceptions to the Settings window when I specify a website. WHY? This is crap. Firefox used to be such a good browser, but it has become so user-unfriendly. This issue should be easy to fix but Firefox won't allow me to make any changes.

Hi there. I use mailjet for sending email newsletters and campaigns. The images that i was uploading into the mailjet templates where displaying fine both on mailjet and when sent to mozilla firefox users.

The problem is that for 10 days now; when i upload images in mailjet and sending newsletters; the images are not displaying in mozilla. In contrast, when i use chrome everything displays fine, both mailjet and email accounts.

I had a long chat history with mailjet support and they requested to follow these instructions to fix this issue first: https://documentation.mailjet.com/hc/en-us/articles/360058211453-Why-are-my-images-not-displayed-missing-in-the-Email-Editor I did this but i had no success so they requested me to use chrome instead of mozilla. But that is not the solution of the problem because this must address all different browser users.

Can you please help me on this?
