Mozilla decides to disable addons that work perfectly well because they think that we need to be protected from ourselves and because we don't have the brains to pick and choose what works best for us.

Another problem is that Firefox no longer works on all web sites. On some the page never finishes loading, on others the links to navigate the site no longer work. On these I go to Chrome and all works just fine. Edge and old Internet Explorer still seem to work as well. Except for these two points I prefer Firefox over other browsers and that is why I continue to use it.

Why Mozilla thinks that all web sites have to conform their site to work the way Mozilla wants is beyond me.

If someone wants to berate me for being ignorant and behind the times and that your installation works perfectly everywhere, go right ahead. I will ignore you.

No one said you are ignorant, we just want to know what sites are not working correctly.

Both links work for me (including walmart left hand links) with 52.5.3 ESR. Both config settings mentioned are enabled.

And the links on the left hand column no longer work:

The Walmart links require session storage: -> true

In addition to session storage the Vanguard one also requires a Referer Header: network.http.sendRefererHeader -> 2

The Walmart one is particularly annoying because at first glance they look like normal links but there is in fact a javascript click event attached to those links.

I routinely manipulate these preferences (using add-ons) but you do need to be alert to when this causes problems.

Thanks for the info. That got both of those sites working for me
