Why does Firefox freeze and a rectangular white box come up on the screen of my Mac after the computer goes into sleep mode?

Why do I find Firefox forzen and a rectangular white box on the screen of my MacPro after the computer goes into into screen saver mode and I come back to type again? I have to Force-Quit Firefox and restart my tabs from scratch.

It got so annoying that I switched to Chrome for a while, but Chrome is a power grabber that would not let me upload to Amazon the cover images for print books I write. I want to switch back to Firefox, but the only way to keep it from dying on me is to keep the screen saver and the eco-saver sleep modes completely off. This only started happening after I installed the new Yosemite OS, so maybe there's an incompatibility of some sort.

Here is a screen shot of how the white box looks on the frozen Firefox screen. Well, hmm. Looks like this image won't upload either! Oh well!

Anybody know what's wrong or how to fix it?

Firefox was slow so it suggested 'renewing' and getting rid of add-ins. What I didn't realise is that is has eliminated my certificate to identify myself to secure government institution websites (in Spain). I am right in the middle of tax returns and I am now totally screwed. Is there some way back?

When I open a new tab, it is totally blank. Recently I was exploring all the Firefox features & realized that a new tab should be showing sights I visit often. if I close all my tabs, I do get a page a with my favorite tabs. Should I not be getting this page when I open a new tab? I've checked my about:config and browser.newtab.url is set to about:newtab.

What can I do to get this page to load when open a new tab?

Not even sure what started this in the first place, but out of nowhere, Yahoo has become my default browser for when I type search items in the address bar AND in the small search bar to the side. I do not want this at all. I prefer Google and always have. I've changed both of them back to Google repeatedly (by going into about:config and all that), yet every time I restart my computer (or even put it to sleep), it defaults back to Yahoo. Not sure what's going on here, but if anyone has had a similar problem and knows what's going on and how it may be fixed, any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I manage a website (melissachappell.com), which has pdf articles in an iframe on the html page. After the latest update (on 07/08/2015) PDF's are now downloading to my downloads folder instead of opening on the page as intended. I don't like this because 1) it clogs up my downloads folder and 2) the page looks weird now because the iframe is blank. Is there any way to change this to have the PDF open on the page instead (as it did before)?

Suddenly this afternoon I get horrible video ads on my Firefox screen. I reloaded AdBlock and they're still there. Also and equally out of the blue, Ask has become my default search engine and remains so, no matter how many times I have selected Google and deleted Ask. I have been a loyal Firefox user for many years but I do not want ads and I do not want Ask!

Hi,

Some websites will open pop-up windows, even though I have a pop-up blocker enabled.

The problem with these pop-up windows is that they don't have have the close option like other Firefox windows for Mac.

This results in the pop-up staying open and the only way I can get rid of it is to quit Firefox completely.

Any assistance will be appreciated.
