I have searched, but have not seen a solution to what is happening. I can no longer log into eBay (button is grayed out), photos on imgur do not display, captchas do not display on logon screens etc. All of this used to work fine. And all of these work on chrome.

I have deleted cookies and history, updated to the latest version, disabled all add-ons etc.

Can anyone please help me??


Firefox 69.0.2
Mac OSX 10.11.6

Any change if you restart in Safe Mode?

As a test, create a new, clean Profile.
Does that work?

Are you using Private Browsing?
Do you have images set as blocked on imgur?

Not that I am aware of.

I was looking at this earlier. Is java controlled by an add-on? I could not find anything, so I added an add-on for java - with no change..

FYI, JavaScript is not the same as Java.

Where do I find this? I am looking in preferences and do not see it.

Sorry; I don't know. I was just pointing out that JavaScript and Java are not the same -- it's an often misunderstood distinction.

You don't find JavaScript anywhere in preferences.

JavaScript isn't the problem if the sites don't work in safe mode .

Do they work in a new profile?

(If you manually disable JavaScript [in about:config], starting FF in Safe Mode does not re-enable it.)
