It takes 2, 3, sometimes 4 times to click in an input text box to type. Restarted to safe mode didn't work. I tried in normal mode with all extensions and add-ons disabled or off. Changed theme to normal. Disabled hardware acceleration. Uninstalled/reinstalled FF. None were successful. It works in Chrome and IE. I look at my keyboard to type cos I'm retarded. So when I click once and the page animates like it wants to select but it doesn't, I usually have typed an invisible paragraph before I realize I have been duped. It is not a huge thing, just annoying.

Firefox hangs when moving a tab but only the first time I move once in a session.

Firefox always hangs for a few seconds after moving a tab or downloading something.

This only happens once per session and it's an either/or situation. Meaning, if I move a tab first, it will hang, but my 1st download will be fine. If I download something before moving a tab it will hang but then moving tabs will be fine.

After doing either one once, all subsequent downloads or tab moves are fine.

I would suspect it has something to do with the drawing of the interface because in both cases something new is happening at the top of the browser. This is just my uneducated guess based on similarities between the two issues.

Allow Location Access completely freezes up Firefox 65.0.2

Firefox completely freezes up whenever I visit a page that uses geolocation services and I Allow Location Access. An example URL is:

https://www.guitarcenter.com/Used/Fender/Vintage-Reissue-1959-Bassman-LTD-4x10-Tube-Guitar-Combo-Amp.gc

Another example is FedEx.com.

I've tried troubleshooting this by running Firefox in Safe Mode but that does not help. The only way I can get those pages to work again without freezing up Firefox is to clear out or disallow location permissions.

I noticed that version 65.0.2 supposedly fixed a bug related to geolocation services affecting Windows users. Well, for me at least, this bug fix has introduced a bug that I didn't have before.

How can I get this looked into and fixed?

I been having problems with Firefox ever since I refreshed 65.0.1 losing 6 years of bookmarks, addons and passwords, after 7 hours and I managed to get old files back and had to redo addons and passwords. It became unreliable with copying/paste not working, slowness etc and when I found that it was not updating to latest 65.0.2 I scrapped it and downloaded latest. But cannot get old version of profile back. Instead I have no files showing up in local directory, though root directory is showing *see screenshot. So I have to restart everything from scratch with important passwords and bookmarks etc. It still will not show but closing down firefox it does save and keep customised setup and session etc. Is this normal to vanish on this version?
