When I try to open google maps from toolbar with add-ons enabled. While my locale is right most of the time, the screen freezes (crashes?) and I get the following notification regarding the tab: https://firstname.lastname@example.org,-81.5394721,17z Nothing seems to have helped now for 5 days. Thanks for any help offered
Hi jkelley611, the way your question is phrased, it leads me to think:
(1) When you test Google Maps normally, either the tab stops loading/becomes unresponsive, or you get an error message in the tab like "Gah, the tab crashed". Can you clarify which one?
(2) When you test in Firefox's Safe Mode by using Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled, then it works normally. Is that correct?
I get the following notification regarding the tab: https://email@example.com,-81.5394721,17z
Where do you get the notification?

Yes, that's exactly the problem. Any ideas?
Firefox's Safe Mode disables all extensions, but also blocks Firefox from using hardware acceleration.
Could you try disabling Firefox from using hardware acceleration? This is a potential workaround for incompatibilities between Firefox and your graphics card/chipset driver software. This article describes where to make that change: Firefox's performance settings. This will take effect the next time you exit Firefox and start it up again. Any difference?
Since hardware acceleration improves the appearance of fonts and animations, you may want to check whether graphics card/chipset driver updates are available for your system. This article suggests safe ways to do that: Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL.
The performance setting reset did not solve the problem. The mac book pro is running High Sierra: 10.13.6. Not sure if it didn't start after I updated to 80.0.1. I can use google maps with the Brave browser.
So most likely there is a conflict with one of your extensions. It seems you have (at least) 5 ad blockers running simultaneously. Could you try only running one at a time by disabling the others on the Add-ons page. Either:
- Command+Shift+a (Windows: Ctrl+Shift+a)
- "3-bar" menu button (or Tools menu) > Add-ons
- type or paste about:addons in the address bar and press Enter/Return
In the left column of the Add-ons page, click Extensions. On the right side, find the "Manage Your Extensions" heading.
To disable an extension, click its blue slider switch. After a moment, it will move from the Enabled list to the Disabled list.
Used slider to disable all ad blockers and it still crashes.
Closed all extensions with slider and google maps still crashes.
Used Help to restart with all add-ons disabled and google maps worked.
I can't think of what else it might be.
jscher2000 thanks for your time.
FredMcD, yes. Still crashes.
