    Found a potentially good security tweak. Setting network.http.sendrefererheader stops websites from tracking your browser activity. I have no way to test it though. Also, FF just had an update, and I didnt get any pop-up messages this time other than a window showing the update progress.

    I've found that for a few sites not sending referrer prevents downloads from those sites but it's no big deal to re-enable.

    Do you have any good security tweaks similar to the one I found?

    After update to 59.0.2, everything has become normal for me.

    Well FF got so sluggish that it stopped responding when i clicked on a button on various websites, so i made a fresh profile and started all over again. Will see how it goes.

    Seems like creating new profiles gets rid of the sluggishness temporarely, but the problem with videos freezing occasionally has come back again.
