This may be coincidence but I just added several Firefox tweaks listed at privacytools.io None of them seem like they could have any affect on this but ...

Now when I initialize FF it appears full height but only half the width of my screen.

So I pull it over to full width, close it, re-initialize, and it's still half width.

Rebooted, no change.

???

Recent update to Firefox 52.5.0 ESR caused multiple issues with my computer making it virtually unusable.

I am running an IBM ThinkPad 31P with Windows XP Pro. On 11/18/17 my computer updated Firefox automatically to 52.5.0 ESR even though I have it set to ask first. Within minutes of the update my CPU usage spiked to 100% with no programs open. Windows Task Manager showed svchost.exe to be at 98%. This same thing has happened with every major Firefox update and issue has not gone away until Firefox issued an update to resolve instability issues. This time I exchanged hard drives to my "back-up clone" and immediately started removing Firefox program. However, I neglected to disable my wireless card and almost immediately I got a "Firefox Updating" message on the screen. I immediately killed the computer, removed the wireless card, rebooted it but damage had already been done and CPU usage spiked to 100%. Using software removal tool gave message that Firefox had already been removed. However, I was able to locate the new program in my Temp Download file and manually remove it. This did not resolve the problem. svchost.exe CPU use spikes to 98% or higher by the time computer has booted up, with no programs open and internet access deactivated. Have attempted to use my "Autoruns" program to troubleshoot and determine the cause but am not proficient enough. Am at the point now of planning to reformat a 3rd hard drive with Acronis clone from my stand-alone backup hard drive, which has not been connected during any of this, then removing Firefox permanently and switching to Opera. Any thoughts on what might be causing this problem? Thanks!!!

After the last firefox update I have been getting popups and popups are disabled. I also am getting new windows opening up all the time. For instance clicking on log in this this page I got these 2 one at a time that opened after https://loadity.com/joinnow/step1.php?lp_tweak=general&aid=859325683544&a_bid=1ed55266&data1=8&data2=register&data3=https%3A%2F%2Fmozilla.org%2F&data4=CWAABox&a_aid=tVNce

Mostly MapsScout stuff but all the time.

I have ran multiple virus and spybot scans. I have cleared cache and all history and such also. Something is very wrong. And things changed after last update.

When I type in the address bar, I am used to

  • seeing my history show up as I type; and
  • pressing the Enter or Return key to navigate to the thing I typed.

Now the history doesn't show as I type, and Enter/return has no effect... Until I type one of the following things: backspace, space, / or # (there may be more). Then the history shows up and Enter works again!!

If I type any other character after any of those, then the history disappears and Enter stops working again.

What gives? Is this a bug? Or a setting somewhere?

It's super annoying.

Never seen this before. IT just upgraded my machine to Windows 10, removed my previous Firefox installation, and force-installed the ESR version of Firefox (60.5.2esr (32-bit)).
