1. When I go into multiple tabs (maybe 3 or 4 at a time) it all of a sudden freezes and I cannot get into any of the tabs anymore nor close/X them out. I end up having to force quit and close out all tabs I was using.

2. It is also giving me a page that I use everyday not upload all the way which has never happened to me before. I attached a photo of what that page looks like.

Many site issues can be caused by corrupt cookies or cache.

Warning ! ! This will log you out of sites you're logged in to. You may also lose any settings for that website.

If there is still a problem,

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

While you are in Troubleshoot(Safe) mode;

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.
