Firefox 89.0 crashes instantly when opening: https://globe.adsbexchange.com/
For a long time, Firefox has been crashing when I try to open the ADS-B website for tracking aircraft.
This problem is intermittent.
ADS-B is a huge aviation safety improvement.
Because tracking of military aircraft is often prevented, I attributed the crashing to a crash signal from military aircraft departing the nearby airport.
There are privacy concerns that have led to a new system for ADS-B.
There is also an unrelated FAA-offered blocking feature for radar tracking which allows aircraft owners to block radar data from being viewed by the general public.
Today I learned that it is impossible to paste anything to the Mozzila Crash Reporter block.
I haven't found a way to see any relevant crash report info in the Activity Monitor feature.
I haven't updated Firefox to the newest yet because the last time I upgraded I found that the appearance of the tab bar had been changed, and it took too long for me to return to the desired previous appearance.
It is often not easy to go back to a previous Firefox edition.
I understand the need to solve problems via upgrades, especially security problems, but now our late 2013 Macbook Pro Retina is stopped at OS 13.6, and perhaps also stopped at Firefox 99.0.1?
Perhaps security fixes will soon be impossible.
Thanks for your consideration.

I haven't updated Firefox to the newest yet because . . .
I understand how you feel. I didn’t like where Firefox Quantum was going. So, I stopped updating at v54. So far, no real issues. And I still have my Legacy add-ons.
I have noticed, however, that some websites don't work properly.
I have several versions of Firefox, including the current (99.0.1), and had no problem.
I had the webpage open in the current Firefox (99.0.1) for some time without issues.
Can you describe in detail how the crash happens?
Could be a problem with WebGL.
Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions ("3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Extensions) or if hardware acceleration or userChrome.css is causing the problem.
- switch to the DEFAULT theme: "3-bar" menu button or Tools -> Add-ons -> Themes
- do NOT click the "Refresh Firefox" button on the Troubleshoot Mode start window
You can create a new profile as a quick test to see if your current profile is causing the problem.
See "Creating a profile":
If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.
