Have you tried using a more recent version of Firefox? You mention that you are using Firefox 75, but we released version 116 last week.
See also, my reply to your earlier question:
If you suspect that you installed some malware, check Linux forums for suggestions on cleaning your system.
And by the way, this site does not accept replies by email, so please follow up in one of your two threads if you have more questions.

Firefox 75.0 is not new as it was released April 7, 2020 as you can see there has been many Firefox releases https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/releases/ since.
You need update or add to the package manager source links as the Linux distro you have is outdated with the Firefox 75.0 is comes with. Whether from Mozilla PPA repository or Ubuntu repository. ex: https://idroot.us/install-firefox-ubuntu-20-04/
Since you mentioned Ubuntu, I am guessing you have the old Ubuntu 20.04 LTS (released April 23, 2020) which comes with Firefox 75.0 if you do not do any updates after Linux install.
Btw, some Linux distros bundle in a lot of extras with their provided Firefox like say a lot of language packs and dictionaries and such.
Firefox for Linux from Mozilla https://www.mozilla.org/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release does not come with extra dictionaries and languages packs.
oh btw, typing in all Caps is the internet version of shouting in people's faces.
