I don't know what's going on with Firefox Mac 68, but now, when I visit my favorite Irish newspaper ( https//:www.independent.ie ), I can neither log in, nor sign in , nor create a new account, nor view any videos??? *None* of these problems occur with the "other three" (Chrome, Safari or Opera). What in teh world is going on with FIrefox? (my favorite!)

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem, 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). Did this help?

While you are in safe mode;

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

Newest Firefox version for Mac (68.0.2) is also blocking comments on Inside Higher Education site and interfering with campaign donations on Act Blue sites. Safari and Chrome work fine.

Make sure you are not blocking content.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

One issue that seems more common lately is Firefox's Content Blocking. When it is blocking content in a page, a shield icon will appear at the left end of the address bar next to the padlock icon. This article has more info on managing this feature:
