81.0.2 exhibiting strange behavior.

In the latest version 81.0.2 I am experiencing strange issues.

1. On both of my computers I cannot get to load properly. It works fine in Chrome, but every time I try to log in with Firefox I just get a spinning circle and some weird code characters at the upper right by the location search box.

2. I have had several "tab crashes". These sites also work fine in Chrome, but crash in Firefox.

I have tried "refresh" and also completely removing and reinstalling Firefox on both computers. After uninstall I scanned and cleaned the registry with two different "cleaners" before reinstalling, but still having issues.

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
