Additional info: Doesn't work in safe mode too. But everythings seems to work fine in a new private window...

I'm investigating the issue and I'll send more information soon. reports "Investigating... If this doesn't go away, things are unexpectedly broken." because even LocalStorage database for that site seems to be corrupted and script.js doesn't handle that currently.
For now, you can can fallback to the old LocalStorage implementation by changing "" preference to "false".

Thank you very much, does it as a workaround. But of course program update shouldn't corrput LocalStorage database... Discovered same effect on two other computers too.

I'm sorry, but this new implementation was heavily tested during 3 beta cycles (68, 69, 70) and we didn't get bug reports like this IIRC.
BTW, do you have Kaspersky Anti-Virus installed?

No, Sophos running as AV

I cannot seem to reproduce this issue, nor have I seen it before, so I can't confirm it, but I am setting its component as (Toolkit) Storage. Jan Varga, is this a correct component?
I would like to reproduce when more information on how to do it is provided. NI me if further testing is needed.

Component: Untriaged → Storage
Flags: needinfo?(jvarga)
Product: Firefox → Toolkit
Component: Storage → DOM: Web Storage
Product: Toolkit → Core

This should be fixed by disabling new LocalStorage implementation in 70.0.1
