I use a current version of Win 10 and Firefox. After the last Firefox update when I perform a search using the search box Firefox does not show all the various websites for search results. When I perform a search for "movies sioux falls" the result lists one web site instead of the many that should be listed. Also I am a Pinterest user. When I use Firefox to load Pinterest Boards the board don't load all I see is a spinning wheel icon. Many times when I try to save a pin all I get is a blank screen. I have had to use Chrome until these issues with my Firefox browser are resolved. Thank you for your prompt attention to my issue and I look forward to your reply.

With two different problems, you may need two fixes.

What are you using as your search engine?

Let's start with this; Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link} by holding down the <Shift> (Mac=Options) key, and then starting Firefox.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

My search engine is Google Safe mode didn't help. My issues started after my last Firefox update. For example, I perform a daily search for TV listings because I have made this search in the past the results only list the one site I selected form a prior search not all the various web sites. This issue is intermittent. Sometimes the search will return all web sites not only one. Thank you for your help with this problem and I look forward to your reply.

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.
