Should I uninstall the Java application and related plug ins or go back to Ver 16 in which this problem did not occur?

Chosen solution

To avoid confusion:

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance).

  • Do not click the Reset button on the Safe mode start window or otherwise make changes.

Thank you for leading me to the detailed method of checking extensions. The Social Fixer Extension needed to be updated. Mission accomplished.
