Firefox Tracking Flags

(Not tracked)

User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 10.0; Win64; x64; rv:50.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/50.0
Build ID: 20160703030210

Steps to reproduce:

Open a link from a hot link.

Try https://stopforeignownershipinaustralia.com.au/category/fracking/
Then at the bottom of the page try other links

I've seen this in Facebook for about a week or more. This is the first time I've seen it happen on another page.

Actual results:

Firefox is thinking but nothing happens.
Place the cursor in the URL bar and hit enter and the link opens immediately.

Expected results:

Open URL

(I haven't tested in safe mode yet but will next.)

Can't prove much using safe mode and restarting Minefield and the issue is gone.

That said I've seen this over and over for weeks. Might be related to something going on when Minefield has been open and heavily used for many hours.

I can't reproduce this issue with the latest Nightly on Windows 10 x64bit - the links are properly loading when clicking on them (refresh is not needed).

Yani, could you please type about:support in the URL bar, click on the "Copy text to clipboard" button and paste the input here?

I noticed something on youTube today. And yesterday a doubling of the sound output. And to get youTube to open the share link box was a lot of poking at it, if I can put it that way.

Experimental Features

The fact the issue you are having is not reproducible in safe mode means that is not caused by an extension or theme, but the culprit here might be a plugin or a change in the Firefox preference settings (these are not disabled when starting Firefox in safe mode).

To go further and eliminate the other causes, could you please try to reproduce this issue on a clean profile? 

If the issue is not reproducible on a clean profile, I strongly recommend you a Firefox Refresh:

Please post here the results.
Closing this as incomplete due to lack of additional information from the reporter.

Yani, please feel free to reopen it if you still have the problem reproducible (on the latest release) and you can provide additional details that could help us reproduce or identify your issue.

The youTube issue I reported again on a different report.It was real and confirmed and was still a bug as of 2 days ago. The other issue I don't remember seeing repeated in the last few days.
Thanks for the update! 

Removing the need info flag.
