Workaround for Firefox crash on start-up with the add-on Ghostery enabled
Hi guys,

today, I and some of my friends run into trouble when we wanted to start #Firefox. I hope this article is helpful for others, who encountered the same problem.

__Problem__

Firefox was frozen and crashed after a few seconds. There were no recent updates visible. It will happen only in version 65.02 with Win7 or 10 | 64bit. After some investigation I found out that there was a new version from #Ghostery which leads to the problem. After disabled the add-on, all works fine.

__Workaround__
Disable add-on Ghostery solve the problem.

__Feedback from Ghostery__

> 
> We are working with the Firefox team to fix this issue. It appears to be localized to Ghostery 8.3.1 users on Firefox 65.02 > |  Windows 7 & 10 | 64 bit. Ghostery 8.3.1 has been in production for over a month, so as users are updated to the new >Firefox version, this glitch became apparent.
