For no reason that I can see, a pinterest "save" button has started to appear in the upper left hand corner of images in my Firefox browser. I have not loaded an extension or add-on, and I can find nothing to "disable" under Tools.

Any suggestions?

I just upgraded to to Mac OS Catalina and Firefox 75, and I've noticed two very strange and specific problems on certain websites.

-On Wikipedia the number 9 is displayed as an underscore _ So the year 1669 looks like 1__9, etc.

-On Blogger, in the compose mode, typing lowercase y makes nothing appear, and typing lowercase z produces quotation marks!

I tried using a different (brand new) keyboard, and the problem remained.

I tried those two websites in the Safari browser, and there were no problems.

Firefox keeps crashing, sometimes individual tabs, sometimes the whole thing. The constant "crash reason" given in the reports is: EXC_BAD_ACCESS / KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS.

I'm using a macbook, mid-2010 upgraded with SSD and 8GB RAM. (Which may be the problem right there.)

My only extensions are Facebook Container, OneTab, Reddit Enhancement Suite, and uBlock Origin. Only plugins are OpenH264 Video Codec, Shockwave Flash 32.0, and Widevine Content Decryption Module provided by Google Inc. (no idea about this last one).

Any ideas?

(My understanding of the inner-workings of computers does not run terribly deep...)
