First off=C2=A0 the system is:

FreeBSD fbsd11rd3 11.1-RELEASE-p9 FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE-p9 #0: Tue Apr=C2=A0=
16:59:16 UTC 2018=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0
amd64=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0 running UFS on partition 3 of 4 of a 1TB HD=
on an ASUS=C2=A0 intel i3 motherboard.

Two days ago=C2=A0 I upgraded Firefox from v54 to v59

In the process pkg also hosed up qt5, stripped many of my other apps
like telegram & quassel ( which is dependant on qt5), qtcreator, and
others=C2=A0 I havent tried yet. now Firefox will load many of the URL's =
it did before=C2=A0 but several=C2=A0 it among them being facebo=
ok and
the list of search engines in=C2=A0 the search bar:=C2=A0 Google, duck du=
ck go,
bing, amazon etc.=C2=A0 In all of these cases the error I get now is:

=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0=C2=A0 Error code: NS_ERROR_NET_INADEQUATE_=

Immediately after the update, firefox reported=C2=A0 that an SQLite lib h=
not installed correctly, so I reinstalled that.

The update also updated Seamonkey and it reports=C2=A0 the same error.

Among sites not similarly rejected are piratebay ( which I tried
out of curiosity), and several others. I cannot explain=C2=A0 t=
nor why even after re-installing, quassel, and telegram-desktop appear
to be starting but soon die.

=C2=A0This is not the first time such an update has wiped out other apps,=
happened while the system was 11.0 also, but that was months ago and,
fortunatly, I dont remember mucvh of the details.

I can see where this might appear as at least 2 independent problems,
but I dont believe it is.
