Firefox doesn't navigate when I first type in an address. It does if I try again.

Mac OS X, 10.15.7. Macbook Air 2012. Firefox version 81.

After starting Firefox, I'm taken to a blank page (my default new tab is about:home.) If I type in an address and hit Enter, nothing happens. When I hit enter again, it finally starts to browse. This happens every time I start Firefox fresh. If I hit CMD+Q then start Firefox again, and type in an address, and hit Enter, it does nothing. Not until I try again does it work.

I am using firefox to watch recorded lectures on Microsoft Streams. The video started out smoothly and increase to shutter every few seconds after a while (~5 mins) and pause itself without me touch any keys. I tried continue playing the video and this persist. I tried refresh the tab and the problem appears after a while again.

The only add on I have is Adblock.

I have 4 tabs on my home page. 2 of them open normally, 2 do not. If I click on the address bar of one of the tabs that does not load, a list of recent URLs drops down, with the URL of the tab on top. At the end of the URL, is the work "Visit". If I click on Visit, the URL loads. The other 2 tabs load normally. I am on Windows 8.1 and have the latest Firefox version. I believe this just started to happen after I upgraded. I have tried to use the troubleshoot Restart with add-ons disabled. Did not solve the problem.

Valued community members: Not looking for a fix or work around solution here. My goal is to better understand why this occurs. Each time I (frequently) update to the latest version of Firefox, I Iose extensions (in this case new tab - cursor to search bar). I know that users can go in and correct this, but I would prefer that settings, extension, addons, etc, be preserved. My question is, is that really challenging of a code writing task? I know next to nothing about programing, but based on my experience using other apps, I would think preservation would be a piece of cake. Can a Code Joe comment in terms I might understand?

Please help me return to being able to print webpages from Firefox to a pdf.

I installed my cd copy of Adobe Standard X when I bought my Windows 10 Thinkpad in December, 2019. It printed webpages to pdf just fine until 4 days ago.

I've attached 4 screenshots:

1) The Firefox error message I now get when I try to print a webpage.

2) This may not be relevant, but this is the page I got saying the screenshot couldn't be saved as a pdf or Word Doc.

3) The printer list in my Windows 10 settings, showing pdf is the default. I don't know if all along Firefox was printing from the version of Adobe I installed or something that came on the laptop.

4) The error message when I experimented to see if I could print to a pdf in Chrome.

Adobe quit supporting Adobe Standard X years ago, so I don't think that's the issue. Oddly, this happened right around the time Microsoft withdrew support from Office 2010, but I can't guess how that might be involved.

I cannot figure out how to authorize Blue Mountain Cards to send greeting cards to people through Facebook. At one time I was able to do that, and it is very frustrating to no longer be able to do so. I have spent hours this morning trying to figure out a way.
