I am using FF 72.0.2 (64-bit) on an iMac running: macOS High Sierra (10.13.6). My iMac is a mid 2011 machine w 20GB of RAM with an internal 1TB SSD.

CNET runs with the Disqus commenting engine I believe. But the menus and such don't load properly, I cannot run searches, or login, and when I press the comments button at the end of an article, I never get the window panel on the right hand side of the page. I tried clearing my cache, removing all downloaded files, and no change in behavior.

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?

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.
