How to Prevent Google Search from Going Blank in Firefox

Are you using a newer version of Firefox that makes your Google search results page go blank when you hit the back button to return to it?  Of course, you can just hit the refresh button to bring them up again, but why go though that hassles.  Here's a permanent fix:

The issue centers around zoomed in (i.e., enlarged) Google search results and how Firefox handles that.  You'll need to change Firefox's setting for this.  To do so, go to about:config in Firefox by typing that in your browser's address bar.  Accept the warning saying you're working under the hood and could damage the settings.  Then type:

browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers

You should see that it's set to -1.  Change that to 0, so that it looks like this after your edit:

browser.sessionhistory.max_total_viewers = 0


That should solve the issue.  If you're reluctant to make any changes to Firefox's settings, just zoom down (i.e., reduce the size) of Google's search results.  That should also resolve the issue.
