    I'm not having problems here.

    My current login to yahoo expires on Friday. I guess I will find out then whether I am affected.

    Web page loads and shortly after crashes. Disabling all addons doesn't stop it.

    Both of those pages seem perfectly stable here.

    This is Leap 15, firefox 60.3.0esr, with no addons beyond the ones that I automatically get (with flash installed, but set to only activate on request).

    I'm running it under Plasma 5 (or KDE).

    Check your repos. What's the output from
    Code:
    zypper lr -d
    (and use code tags for your output).

    No issues for me using Firefox 60.3 ESR (Leap 15) with these websites.

    Those repos look okay.

    I was concerned about the possibility of mismatched libraries.

    Can you now give us the output from (as root)
    Code:
    zypper dup --from packman --dry-run --allow-vendor-change
    The command itself won't make any changes, because it will just be a dry run. But it will tell us whether you have switched all appropriate libraries to the packman repo. Even if you did switch them all in the past, there have been a few new libraries added that might need switching.

    This is just a check for possibilities.

    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    Computing distribution upgrade...
    
    Nothing to do.

    Okay. Thanks for checking.

    But that leaves a puzzle as to why "firefox" is crashing for you. Your firefox should be the same as mine, and it is not crashing here.

    Maybe it is something in your firefox profile. Can you try creating a new profile:

    From a terminal (konsole) command line:
    Code:
    firefox -P
    That should get you to the firefox profile manager, where you can create a new profile. Remember how to do that, because you will also need the profile manager to switch between profiles.

    The idea is to check whether it still crashes on those sites with the new profile.

    This sounds like a RAM issue
    How much RAM do you have I've noticed similar behavior on resource intensive sites but I only have 4 gigs of RAM
    there are a few things to try to free up some RAM if you're using an nvidia chip install the propitiatory driver and use hardware acceleration
    use a less flashy desktop environment like lxqt disable effects in plasma 5 ...
    you could try and install an ad blocker as some of them (not all ABP increases RAM usage) reduce RAM load for Firefox
