Site keeps detecting ad blocker after all blocker extensions removed and Enhanced Protection turned off

I am using Firefox 81.0.

Specifically, I am trying to "Enable earning" on the Southwest Airlines Rapid Rewards shopping site -- https://rapidrewardsshopping.southwest.com/. I have uninstalled all ad blockers and trackers (AdBlocker Plus, Ghostery, Duck Duck Go, etc.) and turned off Firefox Enhanced Tracking Protection for the site. And still I get this warning at the top of the page:

"AdBlock, uBlock, AdBlockPlus or another ad blocker or Firefox Tracking Protection may be preventing you from earning points on your shopping. "

Does anyone know what is going on?

I am running Kaspersky Total Security. Could that be the culprit? What troubleshooting can I do to find the root cause of the Southwest site detecting an "ad blocker of Firefox Tracking Protection"?

When I open all my bookmarks (I have over 200 tabs), the articles from getpocket tend to fail.

In previous versions of Firefox, when I opened a huge number of tabs, the CPU would max out even after waiting several hours.

I installed Peter Simonyi's addon which opens tabs slowly and it works, but this addon is not actively monitored by Firefox.

When the latest version of Firefox came out, I was really happy because the 100% CPU problem went away, but to my dismay most of the getpocket articles failed to load.

I have Bing set up as my default search engine and it has worked fine for years. Now all of the sudden, any search I request, whether in the address bar or search window is completed by Yahoo. I have tried everything I know to try to fix this but to no avail. Also, when I click the Add-ons button to check for add -ons that I perhaps placed in error, a new blank tab opens up. I'm wondering if I should just delete Firefox and then re-install it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My bookmarks and history are gone. There is a red banner across the top, which reads, "The bookmarks and history system will not be functional because one of Firefox's files is in use by another application. Some security software can cause this problem." No matter what I do, I can't seem to get either fixed.

Somehow, I appear to have installed a plugin called the Lhite Network Extension. It creates hotlinks to advertising sites from plain text "keywords" in web pages. The originator of the plugin is something called Advertising (gear symbol) Support, Inc. and their web site is www.advertisingsupport.com. The removal instructions on that site are generic and do not provide the specific name of the plugin for Lhite Network Extension.

Neither Lhite Network Extension or anything from Advertsinig(gear)Support are enumerated in Firefox's lists of plugins and extensions, nor is anything shown in the Windows 8.1 add/remove program utility. Registry searches are negative as well. Running Firefox in "safe mode" prevents the add on from loading, but I still don't know which one it is.

Any suggestions about how to rid myself of this would be appreciated.

In Firefox 24.0 -> Tools -> Options -> Applications, I cannot choose a program (hh.exe) to read .chm files. When I choose to open a *.chm file I have only the option of saving it, not to open it. Other browsers like Explorer, chrome, even old netscape 7.2 allow me to open it and the program finds I presume the hh.exe file and away you go. I cannot find a way to get Firefox (my favorite browser) to read chm files.

I am trying to play a video (the website supports .webm, .ogv, mp4) but neither autoplay nor the start button seem to work. However, if I slide the control button to the right (+/- 40 sec) the video does play.

I have tried many of the solutions suggested in other threads (deactivating potential conflicting plugins, resetting Firefox, etc.) but none of them work.

What am I missing?
