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.

For example when I click on a video is see a flashing small line at the bottom left on youtube. Also for example if I press wherever on Mozilla there will a flashing line (like word or text editor) to the closest text box. I probably pressed a button that activated this. Does anybody know about it?

Drop-down lists or choice lists in boxes on web pages do not work on my latest release of Firefox. They worked before. I called the help desk of one web service I subscribe to and they said to use Internet Explorer -- that their site didn't work with the latest version of Firefox. That makes no sense to me. I set the Permissions to allow pop-up windows but that didn't help. Is there a setting in the new content blocker that is causing this? Help!

MSN is my home page. I right click on links that I am interested in, choose "Open Link in a new tab" and they used to pop open on my tab line. Suddenly, when I upgraded to Firefox 63.0.1 it fails. It fails to open in a new window also. It just disappears.

Other web pages work just fine. So I am perplexed.

I don't know which version of Firefox I have, but something has changed and I can no longer bookmark to a specific folder. The best that I can now do is click on the IIII, select "bookmark this page", and it places it into the "Library". No option to select a folder. My operating system is Linux ubuntu - is that a problem? It wasn't a problem with previous versions of Firefox.

I'm running 63.0.3 on OS X and just noticed that if I quit (either with command-Q or Firefox->Quit) it will just quit out automatically and not prompt a warning. I've double checked all "warn on close" settings through about:settings, tried toggling them, got the "Warn on close" setting to show up in the security preferences panel and toggled it there - nada. Multiple windows, same thing. Am I alone in this?

I also noticed recently that on Firefox across devices that my "restore previous session" setting was toggled off on upgrade, but at least that is fixed by reenabling it.
