Hi,

1# Firefox often loads a blank "New Tab" in staid of my set homepage, about 50/50 chance. homepage = https://google.com/ncr

Things i tried: - fresh install (including appdata removal) - with and without addons - waited asking till an update to see if it would help

2# Sometimes when scrolling via mousewheelclick/middlemouse at about reading speed, the page turns blank till i scroll back up a bit and continue.

thanks in advance, Aapjuh

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

This is a bug in Firefox 67 and can occur with specific settings in "Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security".

Are you possibly using "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed" and also "Clear history when Firefox closes"?

  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security:
    Cookies and Site Data:
    [ ] "Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"
  • Options/Preferences -> Privacy & Security:
    Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history":
    [X] "Clear history when Firefox closes" -> Settings

If you do then try to disable at least one of these.
