FIREFOX opens itself when I close it, it pops up over top over other browsers open and often I have to click 2-4 times on things to get them to work. it is so bad I have uninstalled and reinstalled and now I am just to the point I cant use it and if I cant get it fixed I need to find an alternative browser. I am sending you this via chrome because I just cant deal with the firefox.

Recently encountering "beachball of death" on a mid 2010 iMAC running High Sierra after update to 10.13.6

Recently getting frequent "beachball of Death" on a "mid 2010" iMAC running High Sierra after updating to 10.13.6. [iMAC too old to use Mojave]. Happens both with Firefox 64.0 and its predecessor [I upgraded Firefox to see if this would cure the issue, but it did not]. "Refreshing Firefox", as suggested in Firefox Support may have helped in reducing the frequency. The key aspect is that it is hard to invoke Forced Quit to get out of this freeze. "Beachball" prevents access to Apple logo to invoke it, and sometime prevents right clicking on Firefox icon in the Dock. Command/Option/ESC most always invokes the Force Quit dialog box, and may or may not show Firefox as "unresponding". After finally quiting Firefox, can start it up again and it will work for minutes or hours before this starts again. Flash may be loaded, but is set to block its use. Using Adblock Plus No other extensions or add-ons Vanilla apps -- standard Apple apps, plus Google Earth, Garmin which were not in use or background at the time and no problem when running these by themselves. Trigger seems to be doing the update to 10.13.6 version of High Sierra -- Firefox problem in older iMacs ?? Thanks for your help. John Have not had problems when in Apple apps

Firefox was left open. Macbook Air went to sleep. When awakened Firefox was grayed out and not responsive. No dialog boxes or errors have appeared. I cannot quit, force quite or uninstall Firefox. I cannot restart my computer because Firefox cancels it. What do I do???
