When I click on write review the page goes to a ghosted white and no popup will display. I have tried safe mode with same results. How do I fix this problem with Firefox?

Try another browser. If it doesn't work then you will not have wasted this forum's time looking for a non-Firefox problem.

Did try another browser and finally figured out it is the custom tracking protection options as it is missing Social Media Tracking only option.

Figured out it's a bug with Firefox. In Standard the tracking is for Social Media Trackers only but when using custom you can't just select Social Media Trackers it is Social Media Trackers and Cross-Site Tracking. Guess that Google requires Cross-Site Tracking so this breaks their site. Since Standard only does Social Media Tracking the Custom should have a selection for Social Media Tracking only too.

Either way this problem is a problem with development. The problem exist in released version also. Custom tracking protection is a broken POS. No way to turn off stupid cross-site tracking using custom.

Custom tracking protection is a broken POS

More & more, I'm apt to agree.

(These days, Mozilla does so much crap - on its own, like changing your UA if you use Private Browsing, or its' "tracking protection" - with no clear, easy way to disable, bypass, override, it makes using the web far more difficult - when then web doesn't coincide with the masters rules.)
