I can't access a (poor) site, Ff states: Warning: Unresponsive script and so on... I guess I have to overstep Adobe Flash Player. Can you help?

Hello Techies, First meet my system... Linux 32bits (Lubuntu), provided with: Lightspark, an SWF player, and all what Linux comes with.
Firefox ESR 52.4.0 (very old machine, its CPU doesn't have the SSE2 extension) provided with: HTTPS Everywhere, Ubuntu Modifications, YesScript OpenH264 Video Codec, Shockwave Flash, Widevine content Decryption module
I try to connect to a site, a radio station one, and Ff tells me a web page is slowing down the load process. Wait? Stop? Waiting is useless because the page never loads. Stopping leads to the site (simple http, without "s") but many parts of it do not respond. In other parts of the site Adobe Flash Player is mandatory to access the content. As you can imagine my system is not provided with Adobe and I guess this is why Ff warns me and can't access the site. I'm not installing Adobe, I don't even know if it is possible, and safe! How can I fix this? To me I should overstep Adobe, installing to the system something similar that the site can "like". Any suggestion? If you need it I can give the exact URL of the site. Many thanks for your educated answer!

I have a problem that is not a Firefox problem per se, but which is somehow related. I have used Firefox as my browser (Mac OS) for at least ten years. A few weeks ago I started encountering some odd things. On certain websites some things would not function. Examples: on a newspaper site I click the "search' button to open that field, but nothing happens; on various news sites that offer a slideshow, if I click on one it opens, but no images load and there is no way to advance forwards or backwards—it is just a black window that indicates it is loading, but it never does; another is a puzzle site I visit, but the daily puzzle no longer loads. But in all cases, if I try Safari all of those things work just fine. Even more baffling is the ESPN site, where certain banner information (scores and links to specific sport pages) do not appear at all even though the rest of the content shows and the links that do appear work fine. And even MORE baffling is that these problems, which only recently and suddenly occurred for no discernible reason, only afflict my MacBook. My iMac, which runs the same versions of the OS and of Firefox (both always current), does not experience these problems. Only my laptop. I have attached screen shots of a section of the ESPN website to show the problem, made on both my iMac, where everything appears correctly, and on my MacBook, where information and links are missing. Can anyone steer me to what the cause might be that is affecting my laptop? After ten years or so of never using Safari, I now find myself using it every day. I would appreciate any help. Thank you! [P.S. I don't know if this is related, but the first screen shot I selected to upload, which is only 115K in size, still hasn't uploaded after at least ten minutes, though the window shows it as uploading, with the circular icon moving around, much like those slide shows I mentioned. I am posting this without images. I think you get the idea. Frustrating.]

I can get the 'facebook login' screen, I enter my information in the required fields, but I cannot log in. I get a popup window reminding me not to use my facebook login information on 'non-facebook' websites (well, DUH), and below that are some of the email addresses that i have used in the past. Clicking 'log in' only re-loads the login page. How can i go back to the previous edition of Firefox until all the bugs are worked out of the latest version (Quantum)?? Thus far, facebook is the only website that Quantum has an issue with.
I just upgraded to Firefox Quantum 57.0 I am now getting "The page isn't redirecting properly." messages from several sites that were all working fine before
