When I click on items with a site/page opened within FireFox, I often get a new tab opening that is a spam tab. This isn't happening within my other browser (Safari), so it seems to be a bug within my FireFox. I tried trashing Firefox and reinstalling, but it still happens. This an example of what I get: https://search.yahoo.com/yhs/search?hspart=iba&hsimp=yhs-1&type=mnff_6017_FFW_US&p=YTIxMjE5NzUwNTVg1kvqCfeOKLB4AR33riaCrqNV3HoNN8IrME9ejIgE5cWrPljBMWcDLtIfKlHqXZKTmoi6GwJZq8mk8%2FWDbZc1tBQaOLw3Z5Y48V9C5d9lawYIYxKAqcqBiDunpejiM602XO7bNUP1yRpL3qe8s%2BkRgyebbgvSN%2F28aX5k19ZABSBu74syw7eZc44sndbnsM1bq1oZmFEyO%2FdVSY2A%2Bia0DQnaGV%2BJBsnzGeHQ4k7wrN96D5lqUpZJ99UkJ3XjRLDZLGblr2q6QJnod696kOWTvsZ8VaMyKzt4w99ZFjXx%2BStcn1Pr6pmw5IzM%2BiX1RLSRxGNDbuIj87%2F1QHJJt1cSTfv9%2BnbYz%2BolMFXC4IzARaA84h5rr1rlQS40XA%2FlKnhnxk8tZXpgchkPFXiAB%2BLCtfUvyRFuWmKH6Fl6hB8lpVZFXWjEkTc50XQchIXp%2BwsQ54UErLeEP%2BW6PlpmR72LWcCrmLArFSza5E7Y81R2x%2FbqEFX0Zx3UzwF6xkTgvnA8Xj0Zd5BDYw%3D%3D

Firefox 63.0 just installed and I see a tracker blocker is enabled by default. However, I will continue using Blur (by Abine) which provides tracker blocking. Will I improve performance by turning the Firefox tracker blocker off?

I also have AdBlock Plus installed with exceptions configured. Does the Firefox ad blocker offer anything that AdBlock Plus does not? It seems logical for me to turn the Firefox ad blocker off to avoid blocking sites where I wish to enable ads.

Lately (possibly since updating MacOS to Mojave, not sure), certain websites such as maps.google.com reliably cause a tab to hang indefinitely (with the grey rotating circle). This then causes other tabs to hang or not load properly until I restart Firefox, and I'm unable to quit Firefox normally, I have to force quit. I have no issues in Safe Mode, but I've tried refreshing Firefox, removing all add-ons and themes, disabling hardware acceleration, and the problem still occurs when not in safe mode. I'd really appreciate any help I can get with this, it's not only frustrating but is impairing my ability to do my job.

This is not a new phenomenon, neither is the thread. But I have not found in here a real solution. I mean they all suggest to delete all the "places" files from FF profile, restart in Safe mode etc. I have enough of this. I have done it in the past and I do it again and it doesn't solve the problem. That's why I am here with the same issue, actually **UNSOLVED**

I give you an example proving that the problem is idependent of "places":

1) I type 'ishow.gr' in the Address bar 2) I enter the site 3) I go back to the previous page 4) I start typing 'is..." 5) No autocomplete

It's as simple as that. And this did not happen in the past (before Firefox Quantum).

Hello,

I have been experiencing issues with the rendering of the navigation menu to the left of https://www.youtube.com/. This problem only occurs when I am signed into an account. I have not been able to replicate it when not signed into YouTube. Normally when I power on my computer and open YouTube, it renders just fine until I refresh the page or click a video then go back to the home page

So far I have tried to:

  • Refresh the page
  • Clear all cookies, cache and data
  • Disable all my extensions
  • Go into incognito and sign into either one of my accounts (problem occurred on both)
  • Relaunch Firefox and restart my computer
  • Check for updates on my computer and for Firefox (everything is up to date)
  • Try the beta of Firefox (uninstalled the beta once I found the same problem)

Unfortunately, non of these solutions have worked and I did test this in two different browsers (edge and chrome) where it successfully rendered it both times. I have included a screenshot that shows what I mean by not rendering.

Thank you for your time

I am a daily Firefox user and I never faced an issue like this before. I got my new laptop installed Firefox in the beginning it worked for weeks perfectly with the plug-ins I was using on my old PC as well. Everything was working very smoothly but nowadays I am facing issue where it takes too long to load any websites. Even it takes to load and complete the process to connect it to google.com around 10 seconds for sure. I refreshed it once then I tried same issue as before, reinstalled it again nothing worked out for me. I have pretty good internet setup on my home. Is there anyone who is facing the same problem these days or am I special? I want to overcome this problem quickly please help. Thanks.
