Firefox fails to open up a PayPal "popup" window-let when trying to make a purchase from Steam

Hi Forum Folke,

Trying to make a purchase from Steam; click, click, click, get to the payment page, where I select "PayPal" as the method of payment. Get another screen that confirms proceed with PayPal; I click on "OK," and nothing happens. What's *supposed* to happen is a little popup window should open up with the PayPal login, I log in, wade through the selections, and make the payment. What *actually* happens is nothing at all. Click on "OK," and there's this "blink" and that's it. No other change to the page I'm looking at, no PayPal, no nothing... and if I persist in trying, Steam gets all uppity and tells me I've been trying to make too many purchases, try again later. Chrome handles the above scenario without any problem whatever, so the problem is not with Steam, it's with FireFox. Where should I be looking or what should I be looking for that might be preventing FireFox from doing what it should be doing? Thanks... I'm not sure what system info you need to diagnose this issue; if you'll let me know I'll be happy to dig it up and provide it.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure I can rule out my anti-virus, as again, it lets Chrome do it without problem... just not Firefox. For what that's worth....

I've been using Firefox for many (many) years, but the latest version is driving me mad. We are limited to high latency satellite internet, which I fully understand, but the current version of Firefox is painfully slow to respond after hitting "return".....

If I type in the URL box, or something in the search box (being old fashioned I still use the search box in the middle of the screen, I don't like typing in the URL box no matter how much "they" highlight it) when I hit return NOTHING HAPPENS (at least for a while!). Initially I thought I had a faulty keyboard, or that I was hitting shift by mistake, but when I started being more careful and taking note I realised that the slowness is Firefox. It can take several seconds of zero apparent activity before the two dots start flashing in the tab header.

The machine is high spec, not under load, and no other applications seem to be suffering. I do accept that the high latency means that transactions take some time, but the delay appears to be before Firefox starts doing anything - the screen does not change, no alternating dots in the tab header, nothing happening in the tab footer etc. I've repeatedly found myself pressing return again, thinking I missed!!

Is this a "new feature"? Is there anything I can do about it? Thanks in advance for any thoughts!

With many websites I am experiencing overwritten text on page to the point that often it is not possible to read what is there or click accordingly - see sample image below. Already reduced security level to 'basic', but that does not solve problem. Is it just a setting? On Chrome all these websites work fine but I still prefer to use Firefox.

Windows 10 x64

Help appreciated.

Basically since about 15-30 days ago my firefox has been constantly crashing when I open new tab or even simply a link to a website... the more 'power consuming' process is the more likely it will crash. Simply browsing stuff has nearly 0 likelihood of crashing. The frequency varies - something like youtube or steam game browsing will crash with extremely high frequency and will work fine after reopened. Some text based websites will barely ever crash the firefox.

What happens is either instant crash(most frequently) or infinite 'not responding' with the solution being task manager end process.

Either way it happens - reopening browser reopens all tabs that were open.

What I tried: 1) Cleared cache 2) Disabled all extensions. 3) Tried checking about:crashes - 0 reports there in last 30 days... meaning whenever I crash no actual crash report comes in.

I am using chrome at the same time and it has 0 crashing issues under similar circumstances.

Since upgrading to Firefox 79 many Web pages are noticeably, irritatingly slower: Slow to load, and especially for interactive pages (Javascript, etc), slow to respond. Some are teeth-grindingly, give-up-on-Firefox slow.

I've downgraded twice to Firefox 77 and the slowness went away, but that isn't a choice anymore on my work computer.

Please get rid of whatever "improvements" have ruined version 79 and restore the performance of my preferred browser.

I am just wondering why FireFox occasionally becomes slow to load web pages. On these occasions, restarting Firefox fixes the problem immediately.

Example, I was just loading the same page repeatedly because of some work I am doing. After about 15 minutes of slow response times, I restarted FireFox and immediately, the page loaded very quickly as usual.

You can see the page where this was occurring at this url: https://legacy-systems.biz/demo/demo.html

Any information etc. would be appreciated immensely.
