I am having problems with Eset Antivirus Banking and Online Protection not working with Firefox. It works ok with Microsoft Explorer. Firefox seems to lock up.

You should contact Eset support.
I spent 4 hrs on a chat with Eset with no results. The tech tried to get me to switch to Microsoft Explorer
I called for more help. Have you tried disabling Eset on Firefox?
Thank you for the report. Does it prevent Firefox from starting, or prevent tabs from loading? What are the symptoms?
I think a number of "exploit protection" programs that hook into Firefox processes may need to be updated to work with Firefox 73. Meanwhile, the Firefox developers are writing and testing patches to address this issue, but I don't know when they might actually be ready for release.
Firefox will partially open, but when typing in the URL, Firefox won't do anything. It acts as if Firefox has froze. I worked with Eset for over 4 hours. Eset support basically gave up.
Thanks for your help, Brent
Does this work properly when you boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support ?
If you use extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) that can block content (Adblock Plus, NoScript, Disconnect, Ghostery, Privacy Badger, uBlock Origin) always make sure such extensions do not block content.
- make sure your extensions and filters are updated to the latest version
Firefox shows an highlighted shield icon at the left end of the location/address bar in case Tracking Protection is blocking content.
- click the shield icon for more details and possibly disable the protection
You can check in the Web Console what content is blocked.
- "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Web Developer
You can check in the Web Console for messages about blocked content.
I could never get Eset to run in Windows safemode. I tried running Eset banking protection with Firefox in safemode, but Firefox still has the same problem.

The purpose of Computer Safe Mode is to see if the problem goes away. That will tell us something.
Eset told this morning that their techs are working on the problem. Brent
Good to hear. Please keep us posted.
