I'm running Firefox Quantum 69.0.3 on a new 2017 iMac Pro on which I've just upgraded from Mojave to to Mac OS 10.15 Catalina (not beta, the first "official" Catalina release). I'm running into a problem with Firefox that I've not encountered in many years of use, namely that after about 5 or 6 hours of uptime, any open Firefox tab that I refresh or any new one I create gets stuck showing the "TLS handshake" note in the lower left and then times out with a message that the server being contacted is not responding. Restarting Firefox does not fix the problem but rebooting the Mac does, in that Firefox reaches any site once again. But then after another 5-6 hours the problem crops up once more. All other software continues to run just fine during these TLS handshake problems, such as Outlook, Mail, Sonos, etc. I did not encounter this problem when running Firefox on this machine with Mojave. Because I'd rather not have to reboot every several hours I'm wondering if anyone has run into this and/or can suggest a fix for this. Is there a special setting to change or update in Catalina (the only variable I'm aware of that's changed since my upgrade) or in Firefox to work with Catalina's many new settings? Thank you.

The Google News website has been broken in Firefox for some time now. I have regularly used the "Firefox makes me sad" feedback feature but still nothing gets done.
There are three main issues: (1) Sometimes only the visible part of the page loads (it takes up to 20 seconds for scrollbars to appear) (2) When you middle-click on articles (to open in new tabs) and return to the Google News tab, it is blank with a progress load icon for 10-20 seconds (see image attached) (3) When you click on the down arrow, to show more articles for a story, the page freezes for up to 20 seconds with nothing on the page functioning (no links work, right-click doesn't work)
Before any suggests either (1) try a clean profile or (2) check your add-ins I already have done both, and I can replicate this issue on multiple different computers, even in Virtual Machines where Firefox has only just been installed.
So it's (1) either an issue with Firefox which finally needs to be addressed or (2) Google deliberately crippling this site for Firefox users, in which case Mozilla need to change the browser header when accessing this site to lie and report as being Chrome
Either-way can someone please finally fix this, it's becoming irritating having to load up Chrome or Edge to use this site
