Things like comment boxes in articles, health insurance website won't load up, certain media streaming sites (not porn, youtube, netflix, etc.) I forgot what this thing is called. Java? I suspect it has something to do with some kind of ad filter or ublock. On Chrome it doesn't do this. I remember a while back Firefox warned of turning on java or I think it was something else cause of some vulnerable stuff. Just need to know what's the cause of this and how to fix it

Java?

It's JavaScript - Java is a separate thing. Do you have JavaScript disabled?

Alternatively, it can indeed be an addon that blocks certain parts of the page - uBlock might be the one but it won't really do it out of the box, unless you've played with the subscriptions.

Download java and enable it and if you have no script disable that for the website.

If it looks like that for you then you're using more than an ad-blocker.

The only extensions or customizations I have on my Firefox is AdNauseam and the videodownloader for youtube.

From my own experience, if it looks like that, it's because you're blocking the javascript that allows gamefaqs to substitute its own characters for stuff like the little down triangle that you click on to bring up information on that person, or the little icon that shows that it's a closed topic...

Specifically, I'm blocking websites from loading fonts from other websites as well as loading JavaScript from the (dozen(s)) of tracking/ad-services cross-site scripting.

The funny boxes are calls from GameSpot attempting to load icons from https://fontawesome.com/ because they are too edgy to use the standardized fonts included with browsers/operating systems. If GameSpot hosted their own fonts they would load for me.

Most, if not all of the slowdown on almost every website you'd ever visit comes from accessing data on other websites. GameSpot itself sometimes operates two to six times slower than it should be (or perhaps a dozen or more times slower on a phone with JavaScript enabled lol) because of the overwhelming number of connections to garbage ad-sites and trackers.
