After upgrade to 55.0.2 the browser window is unresponsive

Posted

The browser window opens my usual home page. When I click on the box to type in a new address, the window image shifts up about 1/8th inch almost cutting off the red yellow and green dots on the upper left. I can't click them. I can't click and get the cursor to work. I had 4 add ons, but I removed them, which took about 30 seconds each - but they are gone. I restarted twice and the the browser window is still unusable. Nothing changed. Half the time when I click in the box to go to a site it loads youTube, which works fine, but I can't leave youTube. Very strange.

I am using an early 2009 Mac Pro with 2 x 2.26GHz Quad Core Intel Xeon processor OS 10.11.6 I never had any problem before until the 55.0.2 upgrade. Can I get the earlier version to find out if that is the problem? I am writing this using Safari which is having no problems.

If you still want to downgrade, look under; I still want to downgrade. Click the Directory of other versions and languages link. Look for the directory of the version that you want. But, remember that old versions may have security issues.
