Ever since the end of February Firefox has had a habit of crashing on me at random, usually just a tab or so but there's been times where the whole browser just ups and crashes. I am using Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Professional computer.

1. This mainly occurs when viewing a video (mostly Youtube), scrolling down on pages, or opening or switching to a new tab.

2. Beforehand if there were issues it would take a few seconds to load the tab, now it just instantly crashes.

3. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, clearing everything, turning off add-ons, and changing options and nothing has worked. At best, I've stopped it from crashing on launch and disabling add-ons.

4. This issue does not happen on other browsers, nor has my computer shown any unusual behavior.

5. It did not start immediately with the new update, which I got the 20th. It started occurring a week or so after.

How to hide all tabs in one or more containers

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/containers seems to suggests that it's possible to hide all tabs in certain containers, but does not explain how to do that.

"Hide and Show: Assume you use your browser for both Work and Personal tasks. When you come home at the end of the day, you don’t want to be thinking about “Work” anymore, but your browser is full of Work tabs. You can “Hide” your Work tabs and proceed with your Personal tasks. Then the next day, when you are back at work, you can “Hide” your Personal tabs and “Show” your Work tabs."

On an aside, I'm also getting pretty confused between collections (mobile), containers (desktop), sessions, tab groups, etc... they all seem to have overlapping but different functionality.

I've had no problems for years when using PayPal to pay for Ebay items, but suddenly 14/02/2020 the PayPal pop-up window just sits there with the spinning circle. Paying by credit/debit card works fine, but I want the payment to come straight out from my bank account. Followed the simple instructions like disabling AdBlocker and checking Pop-ups are allowed, as given in other answers. Still stuck for a solution, saw elsewhere a reference to user_pref file but that just confused me as I'm not that technically minded. Any help would be gratefully received.

When attempting to access https://signup.gmx.com I get the following error;

The requested URL was rejected. Please consult with your administrator. Your support ID is: < 3522328377538005653>

I contacted GMX and they have been unable to tell me why I can't access their signup page. I had my brother do a test from his home. He's on a different ISP. He is using a VPN, but this worked off VPN too. He is using the same ESR version of Firefox that I am, and he's on the same Windows 10 version I am. Also, he's using the same router I am with the same firmware. He can access the page without issue.

What I've tried;

I do not get this error for any other site. I've been trying to access this page on and off for about 6 months. It doesn't appear to be a temporary error.

Any ideas what might be causing this? thanks

My wife & I have separate accounts in a fund, the web site is the same but the ID and passwords are different, I can make and save these in password manager but when I click on either one it only goes to the web site and doesn't fill in the data fields, associated with this, is also the issue of being able to ID which of the two logins in the list of available logins, belongs to which person ie how do I distinguish the web site data for a or b so as to make the job easier than manually logging in please? It'd be nice to be able to label these two logins in some way or use coloured text or similar?
