    Yes Bo. The home page is blank when MP is disabled. Not so when MP is enabled. Also now when MP is disabled when I click to open NoScript, that screen is blank also, with a "little ghost" icon beside the Option icon on the NoScript menu bar. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Wolfrun. Appreciate you helping me solve this mystery (that is solved now) that had me scratching my head for the past 2 months.
    Now, what you wrote in this part of your post I dont know what you are talking about. Can you explain, perhaps post some screens. On my end, when I had the Firefox version that generated the issues (with MP being disabled), I did not see anything wrong with SBIE. As far as I could tell, Sandboxie doesn't have anything to do with this. I think this is purely a case of Mozilla making things difficult for users who disable MP.

    @bo No, NoScript has nothing to do with any of the above. When MP is disabled NoScript has a problem. MP is enabled, NoScript is ok regarding the option menu. By the way I am using FF 64bit version. Right now I am back on MP enabled and NoScript runs normal with no problems.
    EDIT. My Bad. "As far as I could tell, Sandboxie doesn't have anything to do with this". Yes you are right, a typo on my part. The "icon ghost" was on the NoScript menu bar beside options, Not Sandboxie when MP was disabled, has nothing to do with Sandboxie.

    Probably because some people prefer to run FF that way. Personally I have MP enabled.

    I'm getting very upset with Firefox!
    It's getting more and more difficult to adjust it to my very simple - SECURITY, SAFETY, and PRIVACY - needs.
    Firefox is mutating into that "open privacy, but SOOOO COMFORTABLE to use" versions.
    As a SERIOUS FIREFOX user for YEARS, I've have not used Firefox for WEEKS now, just for updating purposes.
    SAD, very sad.
    And some comic relief.

    While using Vivaldi, I've read an article telling how EASY to switch to the "DNS over HTTPS" mode for FIREFOX.
    OK.
    After that switch, I've decided to check for any leaks with ipleak.org (my favorite site out of numerous ones).
    I did not turn on my Windows VPN apps, just a IVACY (paid) proxy with Firefox.
    Guess what, my SECURE, SAFE, PRIVATE Firefox PERFECTLY showed my PRIVATE IP.
    Yes, I have WebRTC installed, plus the following add-ons, but my PRIVATE IP was LEAKING!

    Leak.PNG

    Now.
    It got my interest.
    I've started Brave without any WebRTC add-on, just with the same IVACY add-on for Brave.
    NO LEAKS.
    I've started Vivaldi without any WebRTC add-on, just with the same IVACY proxy.
    NO LEAKS.

    And FIREFOX used to be such a good Browser.
