Large PAC file doesn't seem to work properly

I have three PAC files.

First, https://vindicar.name/proxy.pac (under 1KB)

Second, https://vindicar.name/proxy2.pac (1.9MB)

Third, https://vindicar.name/proxy3.pac (519KB)

They are almost identical in structure, performing a search through a list of IPs to determine is a proxy needs to be used. The only difference is that first has a tiny list of ips. the second has actual list of IPs, and the third has a significantly reduced list. The largest one was generated by a script, so I don't expect any sneaky syntax errors in there.

Smaller PAC files work just fine, directing requests through a private proxy. I tested it by adding whatismyipaddress.com to blacklisted domains and comparing its output to another "get my ip" site. The largest PAC file seems to have no effect whatsoever, with Firefox falling back to direct connection.

Is there any size and/or execution time restriction on PAC files?

Appendix 1: General structure of PAC files above:

 function FindProxyForURL(url, host) {
   var ipblacklist = [
   // List of IPs goes here, in decimal notation:
   // "127.0.0.1",
   // "192.168.0.1",
   // and so on
   ];
   var domainblacklist = [
   'privoxy.org',
   'whatismyipaddress.com',
   ];
 
   function endsWith(str, suffix) {
     return str.indexOf(suffix, str.length - suffix.length) !== -1;
   }
   var blocked = false;
   for (var i=0; !blocked && (i<domainblacklist.length); i++)
     blocked = blocked || ((host == domainblacklist[i]) || endsWith(host, '.'+domainblacklist[i]));
   if (blocked || (ipblacklist.indexOf(dnsResolve(host)) != -1))
     // That proxy is accessible via my VPN, you will have to substitute your own for testing
     return "PROXY 10.42.0.1:8118; SOCKS5 10.42.0.1:8118";
   else
     return "DIRECT";
 }

When I used to select a bookmark to retrieve from the 'Show all bookmarks' list and then return to this list after finishing with the bookmark it would automatically highlight the name of the bookmark on the list that I just finished with. Now when I do the same thing the name of the top bookmark on the 'Show all bookmarks' list is highlighted instead. I don't know why this procedure changed but it makes it a lot more inconvenient when working with numerous sequential bookmarks.

Every time I try to open a new tab, it's just a blank page with nothing in the URL bar. I want it to display about:home. I'm not sure where to start looking to see what's causing this weird override, especially since I can't find any setting for what New Tabs open in the main Options page, but I do know that whatever the setting is, it got carried over when I synced my Firefox account.

What should I try troubleshooting first? Thanks.

I was trying to open and view a saved PDF file just from my desktop and it always opens with Chrome. I want to be able to view my saved PDFs within Firefox! I went to investigate within Windows Control Panel and I find that when I try to set the default app for opening PDF files, Firefox is not even in the list of possible apps. Thinking I can get around this, I decided to see if I can go into "set defaults by app" and again I am met with disappointment as I see that PDF doesn't show in there. What is a fix for this?

When I type 't' on the address bar, 'ranslate.google.com/' is automatically showed next to 't'. So I can go to 'translate.google.com/' with just enter key. But, I don't like it. I usually go to 'translate.google.com/#auto/en/' not 'translate.google.com/'. Therefore, I need to type down key and then enter key to go to 'translate.google.com/#auto/en/'. I just want to change the automatically completed url to most visited url not main url. Is there any way to do this?

The site is from a major bank in the UK, so the idea that it is duff is rather far-fetched. It worked fine until I installed Firefox ESR 60.0.2. It has a valid certificate "Verified by: Digicert Inc.". What really irks me is that I DO KNOW BETTER than the blocking software, and some arrogant idiot has set up code that is preventing me from posting it as an exception until you get the Firefox problem fixed. And NO, it is not anything to do with antivirus or malware, as I have not changed any of these things, and have run checks often.

Try testing that website BEFORE you give any kiss-off answer!

And especially, DON'T BLOCK stuff unconditionally: the user should always be allowed to override that.

Recently I emptied my Browser Cache in Firefox 60.0.2 (Quantum, 64Bit). When I tried to sign in to gmail / googlemail, Firefox suddenly did the following:

- Redirected me to a different random site or page I visited before. (for example: gmail SignIn ---> some tumblr webpage) - When only one Tab was opened, it simply closed the tab (and itself). (This would classify as a crash?)

I tried closing and restarting Firefox with the same results. Emptying the cache again did not bring any improvement.

I am currently using Rel 60.0.2 but my old PC uses an Intel Pentium Dual CPU at 2.00 GHz with 4GBit of memory and W10 Pro Build 1803. The recent and current FireFox releases show either 4 or 5 threads running in memory and performance is very, very poor. I would like to consider reverting to a Release which does not require multi-core function. Is this R48? Where can i get it? is it supported? Does anyone have any other suggestion? Or will I have to consider another product/supplier?

In the “Exceptions - Cookies and Site Data” dialog (Options > Privacy & Security > Cookies and Site Data > Exceptions), entering a domain as “foo.example.com” creates an entry for “http://foo.example.com”. Explicitly entering “https://foo.example.com” creates an entry for “https://foo.example.com”.

I don't really know how cookies work with HTTP/S. Is it useful to have an entry for each protocol? Or does the “http://...” entry cover both already? If both are necessary, is there a way to add and remove them together, automatically? It seems like a pretty unlikely case to want different rules per protocol.

I've lately been having issues with Firefox having these "scrolling hiccups" when on sites, especially on YouTube and Facebook. From the forums, the issue seems to be with an add-on called Last Past and to fix it, the check box for "click icons in field" needs to be unchecked -- the only problem is I don't have this thing as an add-on, so I have no idea how to fix this. I always clear my browsing, history, cache and such routinely due to me constantly searching things as a writer but that doesn't seem to help. I also can't seem to find the "Advanced" options on my Firefox settings, which is something a moderator directed someone else to, so I can't follow that advice as fully. Everything is up to date. Nothing appears to be wrong. Does anyone have any advice on how to fix this? It's really obnoxious and happens virtually every time I scroll.
