Firefox drag & drop crashes entire OS, what's happening?

Hi everyone, experiencing a problem with firefox on my Macbook. When I try and drag & drop an image from file to an online uploader, it crashes my entire OS.

The file shrinks down to thumbnail size when hovering over the drag & drop space (as normal) but then gets stuck at that point. Then, whenever I try to click on anything at all (start-up menu, a different program) the thumbnail just appears under my cursor, I cannot click away and the whole OS becomes unresponsive. My only out as far as I can see is a hard reset.

Has anyone else experienced this problem and how do I fix it? Thanks in advance for any input.

EDIT: the problem is also present when uploading conventionally. The file uploads but then my cursor is stuck in a form of "force select" - for example if I move it over another program it'll just then drag that program around with it and refuse to drop it, thus screwing up my entire OS. I even managed to CMD+Q quit out of Firefox this time, but once initiated the problem doesn't disappear.

My Helvetica Neue Linotype font is a conflict in my Firefox browser. I am on Mac OS 10.10.5 up to date with FF 59.0.2. I am trying to upload 3 .png images for you but it's stalling, the circle keeps going round and round. Not helpful. Would someone please contact me and address this problem. Helvetica Neue is one of the most common typefaces in the world. Your browser should always honor it. You can call me at 203-797-9497.

I am able to access linkedin.com with the Safari browser 10.1.2 but not the Firefox browser 57.0.4. I am able to access all other websites with Firefox AND some other areas of the LinkedIn site. I have been able to access LinkedIn via Firefox for many years and wish to continue to do so. I do not get an error message. The page will just not load. My only recent software change was updating my McAfee software to 4.1.3.0. Please tell me how to get Firefox to work with LinkedIn on my computer. Thanks.

What I have tried: Cleared cached pages, cleared cookies, cleared saved passwords for the site, cleared history for the site, checked settings to make sure site was not blocked. AND I contacted both McAfee and LinkedIn who said they could not help because it was a browser issue, suggesting I switch browsers.

Sometime in May, I don't remember exactly when, I began deleting files off my laptop to free up space on my hard drive. Ever since then, my tabs would crash unexpectedly. There were times where Firefox would crash when I would perform specific actions. For example, when checking Gmail I would be able to check my main inbox but suddenly Firefox would crash if I tried checking other inboxes. Firefox would go to sites like Youtube, Spotify, and Soundcloud but then crash after a few moments of being on them. For the most part Firefox would only remain running without crashing while searching on Google and utilizing Gmail. Up until this point my laptop has submitted around 170 crash reports. I’ve checked to see if Firefox still crashes in safe mode and it does. I’ve reinstalled Firefox twice and it stopped crashing for a short period of time. My software, Firefox, and plugins are up to date. I’m not really sure what else to do at this point and I can’t have this happen when I go back to school. The most recent Crash ID: bp-9de34816-2a5f-4b6a-ae98-217611170716.
