Firefox browser moves me off the page I am on to another

Skrevet

I am a new apple user. I have the Catalina OS. Most current version. I have talked to apple...they tell me to use safari. I like firefox. Now, my issue. When I am on a web pags (this occurs randomly) I am bounced from the web page I am on to a previous web site I was on. I do nothing nor click on anything to cause this. It just happens. When I am on facebook, this will happen and bounce me off facebook and put me on a web page i had been on during the same session. This was not happening until I just got the latest Catalina update a week ago. I do not know how to fix this issue. Are there settings needing to be changed in the apple IOS? If so what are they? Is there something I can change in my facebook account? Is there something I can change in my Firefox browser account? Or should I just sit tight, grin and bare it until firefox makes changes via an update and fixes this issue. I am beginning to think, I should have stuck with my windows 10 system instead of moving to apple. I am just frustrated that I can not fix this issue. Any ideas out there? Thanks, Jim

It could be the work of one of your add-ons, or it could be Hardware Acceleration. How to disable Hardware Acceleration {web link}

Type about:addons<enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; <Control> (Mac=<Command>) <Shift> A)

In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Disable a few add-ons, then Restart Firefox.

Some added toolbar and anti-virus add-ons are known to cause Firefox issues. Disable All Of them.

If the problem continues, disable some more (restarting FF). Continue until the problem is gone. After, you know what group is causing the issue. Re-enable the last group ONE AT A TIME (restarting FF) until the problem returns.

Once you think you found the problem, disable that and re-enable all the others, then restart again. Let us know who the suspect is, detective.

Is this with all websites/pages, some, a few?

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

This happens in facebook, as well as other web pages I am on. Just never know when...I am reading something and am bounced to another web page.
