Firefox 42 does NOT observe "Keep Me logged in" for **some** websites

Since upgrading to Firefox 42 (Mac), browser does NOT keep me logged in to Verizon webmail account even though I repeatedly click to keep me logged in. It logs me out BOTH if I quit that Firefox session and restart later --AND-- if that Firefox is left running and the webmail browser window/tab is "inactive" for a period of time then I go back to it. This behavior did NOT occur in previous version of FF. This behavior also does NOT occur under these circumstances when using Safari browser. ... I have read posts & replies by others experiencing this same or similar problem behaviors. I DID try :

 - clearing cache, 
 - deleting all Verizon cookies for possible corruptions,  
 - checking Privacy Settings,  being sure to use "Custom Settings"  &  NOT using Private Browsing (see screen shot)
 - writing exception for cookies to verizon.com &  webmail.verizon.com

... Don't know what else to do. Curious that this does NOT seem affect *most* other sites (that I've noted)

  AND that it did NOT occur with earlier version of Firefox  nor with other browsers.

I have had a hard time editing bookmarks.

When I select "edit this bookmark," from the menu, I get a flashing pain-light on my screen, but no way to edit the bookmark.

When I hit command-D, from the keyboard, I get a mini-menu but it is hard to put the bookmark in the right folder.

When I open the bookmarks folder, it opens in its own window, instead of another tab in the same window, and it's hard to navigate between the two windows, and I can search for the bookmarks, but I can't search for the right folders to put them in.

The plug-ins checker shows Reader 15.008.20082 to be out-of-date, but Adobe's plug-in checker shows that I am up-to-date. I have erased the pluginreg.dat file and it did not solve the problem. Any other suggestions or is this the plug-ins checker not taking my Firefox Mac version into account? Is Windows still the only Reader version that has actually updated?

I've started getting a 400/Bad Request errors on various sites. I'm running FF 41.0. I cleared my cache/cookies, and it helped a little but still having issues. Some sites that don't work will work if you type the site differently. Some examples:

Doesn't work: www.youtube.com/ Works: https://www.youtube.com/

Doesn't work: Searching for anything in Amazon and this link http://www.amazon.com/Walking-God-through-Pain-Suffering/dp/0525952454/ref=tmm_hrd_title_0?ie=UTF8&qid=1418587605&sr=1-1 Works: This link for some reason and some others http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1594483493/ref=gno_cart_title_0?ie=UTF8&psc=1&smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER
