can't turn off tracking protection
After many many years, I'm adding my voice to those who say that Firefox is simply becoming unbearable. I recently upgraded to 70.0.1 and as fate would have it I happened to power down everything last night. So that was a pretty clean start this morning. A twitter feed is being blocked on one site and I've toggled enhanced tracking protection off, but it's still blocked. I've cleaned out my history and cookies etc. I've tried messing with every other setting I could find. With "manage permissions" I get a gray window with no option to add a site. And now for the first time ever, I cannot get to the about:config page. Firefox keeps diverting over to my internet provider's search page. I've disabled all add-ons (even lastpass for heaven's sake().
What is going on? Why can't I shut off all interference and view this page as I wish?
