i am unable to download full web pages such as login pages to web sites. for example, I can download the home screen for online banking but the screen comes up completely blank or missing the usename/password boxes. This condition occured without any changes on my part. The same websites still operate normally on other computers at home. Most website downloads just end up with a blank page and the mouse pointer circling around forever. This is a relatively new PC with no other issues till now.

Hi, hold down the Shift key when you start Firefox to start in Safe Mode. More - Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode.

If it works in Safe Mode, disable any theme or extensions you have - 3-bar menu > Add-ons > Themes/Extensions, then restart Firefox; now if it's still OK, re-enable them one by one until you find the culprit. You may need to restart Firefox after enabling some extensions.

Note: If you use userChrome.css - you don't have it if you don't know what it is, this is also disabled in Safe Mode, so should be regarded as an additional - if unlikely suspect, and can be disabled to test by placing /* before, and */ after the file in the chrome folder, then restarting Firefox.

(Your extension 'JavaScript Toggle On and Off' would be my first suspect.)
