during a search, at the moment when the display of the found pages is done, I see the display of the maps, the photos during 1 second, then they disappear and only the listings of the sites remain. Can you help me. Thank you in advance.

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

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}
by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh).

While you are in safe mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

Thank you very much Fred Mc D for your help. In fact, it is not on websites that the problem occurs, but when the search page is displayed. If I type for example google trad in my search bar, I will have a multitude of pages that will be displayed with a listing of the different sites on which I will be able to go. At the same time, the translator window in which you enter the text appears for 1 second and then disappears. Same for a search on a city, the google map associated with it appears for 1 second and then disappears. It's the same thing with photos, if I search for the works of an artist, they appear 1 second and disappear. I tried unsuccessfully to reinstall Firefox without uninstalling the existing program and it didn't work.

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.

Firefox shows a blueish highlighted shield icon at the left end of the location/address bar in case Tracking Protection is blocking content. You can click shield icon for more detail and possibly disable the protection. You can check in the Web Console what content is blocked.

Thank you very much for your response. It seems that everything is in order with the extensions. On the other hand, I can find the images if I use the private browsing window function. Have you a clearer idea of the problem?

Some extensions may not be enabled in Private Browsing mode. so that might be an explanation.
