This question relates to:
French lesson "Le plus and le moins = the most and the least (superlative of adverbs)"

Bonjour Diana ! Actually, I can't think of an example where "fortement" would be used with the superlative form in French. I guess it's because "fortement" is used only in specific context (-> Je vous conseille fortement = I recommend strongly) which don't really work with superlative. "Fort" being used to say "loudly" or "hard", it's more likely to be used in the superlative: Je serre fort. Je serre le plus fort. I squeeze tight, I squeeze the tightest. I hope that's helpful!
