The rendering of discussions on foxnews.com is often corrupted with gibberish characters overlaying discussion text (see attached image). I do not have this problem with Chrome or Edge. Is this a Firefox bug?

As the title implies, I am unable to open any local files on Firefox. The tab just keeps loading forever and using up all available memory until it crashes the tab. (the browser still remains operational, since the crashing process is a child process of the main browser)

I took a look at the process in GDB and it looks like it's hanging in `read () at /usr/lib/libpthread.so.0`, called from libxul.so. (possibly a spinlock, since it also grinds one of my cpu cores down) I've checked and this problem is not related to my profile, settings, or extensions.

I'm at a complete loss for what to do now to fix this, since I don't have the time or disk space to build a full debug build of Firefox and figure out what's going on.

Navigating on Ebay causes The page isn’t redirecting properly error on some pages.

For example I'm unable to navigate through categories but searching and clicking on a search result seems to work fine.

While viewing an item clicking on a subcategory under the search bar generates this error 100% of the time, everything seems to work great on other browsers though.

Sometimes I'm unable to even view an item when accessed from a google result or even an sponsored listing.

I have tried clearing cookies and cache, allowing ebay to set cookies, disabled ETP, run in safe mode, private mode, reinstalling firefox and finally windows but still the problem persists.

Firefox V82 - some users cannot load Foirefox after updating

I work in IT for Cisco (even though my account is using my own email). We have over 100 cases raised where users have updated to V82 and then cannot load Firefox.

We have 2 fixes currently:

1 Downgrade Firefox - but we don't want to do this. 2. Load a new profile.

Is there anything else we can check on. All our users are on Windows 10 Enterprise, there are several versions used from 1803 to the latest, we have a spread of Windows 10 versions where this issue is experienced.

Should there be a better way to resolve this or if there is a root cause that's been found I would be very grateful if this could be passed on.

Hyperlinks now broken for FF82.0 latest MacOS Catalina 10.15.7 on a new MacBook Pro (2020). Suddenly hyperlinks won't open - even after trying all the listed 'normal' solutions, e.g. safe mode, refresh, rebuild profile, link checking using Safari where they DO work, etc. Instead they suddenly open a new window with my homepage. You help is appreciated.
