Firefox 68 allows to set whether extensions run in Private Browsing mode or do not run. You can see this in "Add-ons -> Extensions". If it doesn't work in normal mode then one of the extensions might be causing this.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
  • do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Safe Mode start window
