Paypal Homepage Crashes Windows - OK when FFOX restarted with disabled Add-ons...BUT.....

I've had a problem whereby when I access www.paypal.com using Firefox [v78.0.1 32 or 64 bit on 64 bit Win10 Home System], there is a 'video error' of some sort and Windows will often blue screen. Extra Info: I discovered from another PC that the Paypal Homepage dislays an MP4 video.

It does not happen with Chrome based browesers or 'legacy' Edge. It does not happen on a Windows 10 PRO system that is set up in a similar manner the one that crashes. It seems not to happen when I 'Restart with Add-ons disabled' [via the Help 'drop-down'].

It does happen with Add-ons enabled and ALSO with Add-ons MANUALLY disabled.

I thought that I may have a video driver software/firmware error or video card hardware error but as it 'seems' not to happen when I 'Restart with Add-ons disabled' [via the Help 'drop-down'],

                                                                                                              (I tried a good number of times)

I assume it's not a video card driver or H/W error (?)

My initial question is: 'Is there a difference between:

  1.  'Restart with Add-ons disabled' [via the Help 'drop-down']

and

  2. Manually disabling all Add-ons [not plugins]

If anyone has any ideas, I would be grateful [thanks in advance].

I use 2 pair of earbuds with my PC. When one pair has to charge, I shut it off or just plug it in (same as shutting it off) and connect the 2nd pair.

When the 1st pair is shut off, Firefox drops out of the Volume Mixer. When the 2nd pair connects, Firefox does not reload in the Volume Mixer. No sound on any webpage. Reloading a tab doesn't help. I always have multiple tabs open so having to restart Firefox every time it drops out of the Volume Mixer is beyond annoying. Isn't there an easier way? (don't have this problem with other browsers)

After upgrading to Firefox 68.6.0esr, when we open a Japanese file with [File]->[Open], it becomes garbled and unreadable. Before upgrading, we could read the Japanese file. This file is a plain text file and the character code is ISO-2022-JP. The character code is not specified in the file. I tried to change the character code with Text Encoding menu of Firefox, but the menu is grayed out and we cannot select it. It seems that files with character codes UTF and EUC can be displayed without problems. Is there a way to correctly display a Japanese file in which no character code is specified?

Regards,

I recently reinstalled firefox and now my search suggestions won't work properly. They only seem to work when i check the box "Top sites" in the adress bar section of privacy and security. The suggested sites doesn't change when i check other boxes. It either shows a set selection of sites when i have "Top sites" checked or nothing when it isn't checked. The set of sites it shows when it's checked contains some popular sites and some sites from my browsing history. The list doesn't update and just stays the same.

I want to have "Top sites" turned off and have it so that my most visited sites are suggested first.

Please help, i really want that setting back!
