Steps to reproduce:

I'm trying to scroll down miltiple pages on ebay (each page set to show 192 items)

Actual results:

Beyond the second page, scrolling up and down becomes very slow and erratic often freezing FF. 
I have tried this even with FF in Safe mode and it's the same.

Expected results:

Pages should scroll smoothly

Just tried FF 55 beta to see if the ebay scrolling issue was still there, and it is.

I have the same issue on (not the Ebay forums) with FF 54 and 55 on Windows 7, 8, and 10. There are many other problems using Firefox on Ebay, it's so bad that Ebay is not usable at all on Ebay. Chrome works fine on Ebay.

Agreed.. It's been like this for months for me.. Since first FF 54 version I believe. Even with ad blockers and extensions turned off, and even in Safe Mode eBay is still the same in that it it unusable.

Should someone make one big "master bug" which points to all the Ebay issues? This seems like a big issue, a major commerce website is not usable via Firefox 54 and 55. Ebay forums work, but not User should follow these steps to reproduce: 

1. Go to using Firefox 54 or 55. Preferably 55 as this is the latest non-dev release as I type this. User needs to sign in with a valid Ebay account.
2. Do not use a VPN, so that won't be a variable. 
2. Do a search for a product, like "led light". 
3. Hold CTL and click on a result link. A new tab should open up. This tab will likely either keep the throbber spinning and partially load, or just show a blank page and never load at all, with the throbber going continuously. 
4. If that doesn't reproduce the bug, just click different menu items until the bug is reproduced.
