Why does Firefox change ta URL when I click on it?

I have a page with a link like the following:

https://www.mydomain.com/myfile.php

When I click on it, Firefox tries to load something like

https://www.mydomain.com/~1897655/htdocs/mydomain/~1897655/htdocs/mydomain/~1897655/htdocs/mydomain/~1897655/htdocs/mydomain/~1897655/htdocs/mydomain/myfile.php

Of course, there is no such page, so I get a 404 error.

The original link mentioned above works fine in Chrome. When I mouse over it in Firefox, it is correct. It's only when I click on the link in Firefox that it changes the link to a much longer address.

I have already turned off enhanced tracking for the domain in question.

So why is Firefox trying to load a different page???

Firefox effectively crashes every time they roll out an update. This has been going on for years and every option in the UI that seems to affect this behavior actually does nothing. The only solution seems to be writing some kind of JSON policy file that prevents automatic updates entirely. Why has this massive defect been present so long and why isn't the company interested in fixing it?

Ok, so it might just be a coincidence or not. But after an update on my portable version of FF, when I go to youtube.com I get lots of blank bits. (See 1st picture)

Can't click on any of the elements.

I've cleared youtube cookies, signed out, signed back in. Still the same.

New Private window does the same.

I haven't found any other sites/pages behaving badly.

Chrome displays youtube fine (See 2nd pic), so it's not youtube.

Any help would be great. Thanks. j

DNS Bypassing website blocks don't work only in Firefox

For a while now I've been using the Cloudflare DNS (1.1.1.1 and 1.0.0.1) on my router settings, because it helps me access websites my country's government has blocked. It's been working fine on Firefox for quite a long time, but when I tried it again today for some reason it wouldn't work. I double checked my proxy settings, changed some of them and I tried switching to Google's DNS too but again, nothing. Using this DNS to bypass website bans works on my phone and on Windows using other browsers, so I was hoping there would be a way to fix this issue.

Trying to order from Etsy, the screen is not displaying the full page. The bottom right quarter of info is missing. This works fine in Chrome. I am attaching a couple of screenshots. I am on a Lenovo Ideacenter AIO, using Windows 10. I am not very technical and a lot of answers are beyond my ability. Is there a simple solution to this? Any help is appreciated.

Is there any tweak I can make on the about:config that would allow me to open visited sites from the history tab without actually closing it? If I go to history or manage history, once I open a visited site, the menu/tab minimizes. It's annoying.

When I open a tab and go to a website, Firefox returns me to the previous page, no matter how many times I try to go back to my chosen site.

For example: I open a tab and my default page appears. I type in a website or click on a bookmark, and Firefox will get me there. However, the site I'm on won't stay; it keeps returning to the default page.

I've refreshed Firefox and reinstalled it, but no change. I put Firefox into Troubleshooting mode, but I didn't know what to do after that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much!

Hi, I recently tried to update my video driver, and afterward I was unable to login to Forge of Empires. They said I needed to restart Firefox, which I did. Unfortunately, I accidentally clicked on it twice, opening two instances, and then closed one without allowing either one to finish loading first. The one I didn't close only had one tab, so I went to Recently Closed Tabs to see about restoring my previous session, but it was empty. I also found all of the tabs in my Simple Tab Groups extension were gone so I couldn't restore it from there. My bookmarks still remain. I followed instructions I found to use the .jsonlz4 files, but they also only had the one tab. As suggested in another support page, I also searched for index.dat files, but found none relating to Firefox. Should I have any hope of recovery, or do I need to start over from scratch? Please help. Thanks, Geoffrey
