Firefox stopped working on two different macOS systems

I have Firefox on an old MacBook which hasn't had its macOS updated for a couple of years, and a new Mac running up-to-date Monterey. In both, Firefox has just developed the same problems at the same time: pages won't load, and the program won't shut down normally -- I have to use force quit. Safari works fine and I've tried all the usual solutions, bar deleting and reloading the app. I don't want to do that yet since the problem is the same on two different computers and an old and a new macOS. Since Firefox has recently updated, has that caused the problem?


edited iOS to macOS as iOS is a mobile OS for iPhones and moved thread to (desktop) Firefox section.

Replying to my question above -- Firefox started working again after I switched off and switched back on firewall.

Thanks, Fred. Can't see a 'solved' bitton, only three dots, which don't yield anything useful. So added a solved tag. Apologies for being button blind.
