I recently installed AdBlocker, but then a site I visit daily closes after it loads.

I uninstalled AdBlocker and the site still closes after it loads.

I assume the problem was from AdBlocker, but not really sure why this happens.

Hi Running FF 99.0.1 on MacOS Big Sur (11.6.4) and my Lulu outbound network monitoring app (https://objective-see.com/products/lulu.html) is flagging an attempt by the FF MacOS plugin container trying to access a high risk site (93/100) according to https://www.ipqualityscore.com/free-ip-lookup-proxy-vpn-test/lookup/104.16.248.249.

=======The lulu popup notification shows: Message : plugin-container.app is trying to connect to 104.16.248.249 Process ID: 44441 Process args: -parentBuildID 20220411174855 -prefsLen 6210 -prefMapSize 255244 -sbStartup -sbAppPath /Applications/Firefox.app -appDir /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/Resources/browser -profile /Users/xxxxx/Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles/dps0ori7.default-release 44428 gecko-crash-server-pipe.44428 org.mozilla.machname.1552309677 socket Process Path: /Applications/Firefox.app/Contents/MacOS/plugin-container.app

IP address: 104.16.248.249 port & protocol: 443 (TCP) reverse DNS name: unknown

==

https://www.abuseipdb.com/whois/104.16.248.249 shows a hostname of aofeisheng.com.

Cannot really tell if this is a false positive or something I should block permanently. Not sure why my plugin container is reaching out when the browser was just updated.

Thanks

[report] [#1] [#2] [#3] [#4] [#5]

Firefox has been crashing constantly since Oct 6. Out of nowhere. Initially it would happen occasionally, but since Oct it's like seconds after I open it. Every time I have to force quit the application (colour wheel). Even though I am starting with a "refreshed" version (holding ALT + clicking on the icon and selecting refresh) it still happens.

Any help or tips are very much appreciated, FF is my default browser and because of this I have to shift my workflow to Chrome, which I am not fan.

Tabs I usually have open:

  • Gmail (pinned)
  • Whatsapp (pinned)
  • Google Keep (pinned)
  • Google Calendar
  • Google Spreadsheets
  • Reddit
  • Kotaku (sometimes)
  • The Verge (sometimes)

What I already did:

  • Update it (I had initially the previous version)
  • Open it holding alt → Refresh Firefox
  • Restarting the OS
  • Uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox
  • Disabled hardware acceleration
