Switch to Palemoon or Qupzilla, firefox has "improved" itself to the 
point where it's just not a choice anymore, let alone a good one.  I've 
been using Palemoon and it's been a damn good choice for me... ymmv

Find something else that works for you, there are other choices.  It's 
gotten to the point where firefox is as bad as chrome or ie.  A shame, 
it used to be such a good choice.
