This has been going on for some time on this one iPad I have.

When I click on a link, I get a new tab, but it’s about:blank

In order to get a new tab with the page that I wanted, I have to long-press, select “Open in new tab”

Also, Youtube links used to open in the Youtube app, but now they open to a Youtube page, where Youtube says “We’ll stop supporting this browser soon. For best experience, please update your browser”

Running version 24.1

Reinstalling Firefox didn’t work.
