I'm using firefox-esr on 11.2/amd64 and I don't have so many problems
(although it sometimes hangs and I've incurred in a couple of bugs).
What FreeBSD version are you using?
Did you read pkg message?
Other details on your system?

Now, that's a good point; so far my dislike of FireFox is constantly
growing, by I failed to find an alternative.
What I tried:
_ Chromium: while I just don't like it in general (and I don't like
FireFox more and more mimicking it), it's the OmniBar which make me
avoid it at all costs;
_ PaleMoon: more or less worked (altough some sites refuse it), but it's
now gone like SeaMonkey;
_ Falkon: seems quite light; unfortunately it hangs much more frequently
than FireFox (I'll try again after the upgrade to 11.3).
If someone comes up with other options I might be glad to try them :)
bye & Thanks
