Firefox crashing when opening most Russian websites!

I am on Mac OS High Sierra Since about a week literally any Russian website I open just crashes Firefox immediately. I have tried to restart in Safe Mode and clear history - it didn't help. What is happening?! Using Chrome in the meantime (no crash there)

Do you have a gamepad connected to your Mac because the crash report mentions DarwinGamepadService ?

Jeezus holy shmoly - what was that?! it was a Footswitch pedal, that I use for my Windows OS , I am not using it on Mac - it wasn't even installed - it was just connected. Once I disconnected - everything works again! Thank you so much for spotting this!

But why ONLY Russian websites???!
