Windows Does Not Launce firefox.exe

1) As of Sept 9, Windows will not launch firefox.exe, either by clicking on the filename or clicking on a shortcut to it. It says there's no protocol - see attached image. However, if I rename firefox.exe to something different (firefo.exe), it will launch from clicking on the filename and clicking on a shortcut link.

2) In addition, In Windows settings, Firefox is set as default for file types http & https and for browser. Clicking on any http or https file or link ends up with the same result (see attached image).

3) In Firefox settings, Firefox doesn't recognize that it is my default browser. Each time Firefox is launched I receive the message that it isn't, I select to make it, and it remains as if it is not my default browser (see attached image).

Ran admin command scannow /sfc. Errors found and fixed, without resolving the above problems.

Uninstalled Firefox, reinstalled without resolving the above problems.

HOWEVER, if I select Edge as my default browser, Edge allows itself to recognize that is my default browser and will launch any http & https link, as well as open itself when I click on the Edge executable file.

Any ideas how to correct this behavior in Windows 10?

IDK. szfst4oz.default-1631708567255 is the file that is returning errors I think. szfst4oz.default-1631708567255 is returning and causing an error...

I don't know how this has happened.

I've noticed that Firefox becomes less and less comptatible to websites as time goes by. My last example : https://www.registreentreprises.gouv.qc.ca/

At first, I thought it had to do with the privacy features and all, and still think it does somehow. Some features just won't work, websites don't show some parts, etc. My first reflex until a few months ago was to try accessing later, maybe something is wrong with the website now and will work later... Later I end-up using Edge. Now my reflex is: let's check if it works in Edge... and it does! This is becoming worse; reaching the wanna drop Firefox all together point.

Websites are working perfectly in Edge or Chrome, but not Firefox. Firefox is no longer showing up as "approved" on most websites. Why is that?

As a long time user of Firefox, and monthly donator, I'm starting to get feed-up with this increasing problem. I don't have time and should not have to debug Firefox as a user. I just want to browse the internet, nor make a statement to the world that I believe Firefox is the purest. Browsers should just work 100%, that's it.

Please fix this.

How to Advise Mozilla that Capricious Changes to FireFox Interface are Unwelcome!

Perhaps some like change for its own sake. Many just want to use a browser to get work done.

I am Reticent to Upgrade FireFox because I now expect something To Change, To Break, I don't want the look and feel to change when I want to get work done! I want security fixes but broken features and a rearranged interface hinders the use of a browser.

Continuity is key to smooth use of a Browser. Moving menus, changing tabs, rearranging features, dumbing down menu titles is most unwelcome.

I particularly don't want browser interface changes intended for a tablet or pad for use on a desktop or laptop computer.

Changes to the Appearance should be OPT IN not OPT OUT.

Lately I've been having trouble with Firefox freezing up, forcing me to close it, when I reopen it it won't reload the tabs from my previous session (despite that box being ticked in my settings), this is getting very annoying, I would ideally like to tell someone at Mozilla about this directly but they don't appear to have provided a means of doing that.

Firefox 92 (64 bt) Taking Very Long Time to Load - Windows 10

For the last 6 months, or more, Firefox is slow to launch and load content (until "X" icon becomes "refresh").

I've been working more diligently on this in the last few days. The first thing I did was to run full antivirus and malware scans. NOTHING was discovered. I then found some articles about the problem, the highlights of which presented 3 major points:

  • That a dense cache could be influential,
   >> I've always made it a point of clearing cache every week or 2 anyway. That
  • Add-ons could slow things down,
   >> I uninstalled mt LastPass and AdBlock Plus add-ons (the only 2 I've ever used). And finally, that
  • Security software often instigates scans on browser-related files when FF is launched.
   >> When I got started this morning, I reset my Malwarebytes Antimalware NOT to start with Windows.

I launched Firefox again after restarting the machine, and there was little improvement. It takes 45 to 60 seconds, now, from the FF icon click until the window comes up and the home page (Yahoo, for me) fully loads. Meaning that the 'stop loading "X" ' becomes the 'refresh "left-loop". That's down from 2 minutes a few days ago, but it still seems to me that that's still much longer than it should take.

Please be so kind as to share any thoughts you might have for speeding Firefox up for me.

Thank you!

Using two websites and now they do not load properly. They show as if they are word documents. I have to use Opera to get the original look. One site, I click on the links and nothing happens. Everthing was fine before the current update. These constant updates are getting really annoying and there is no consideration on how they affect users or the display of sites

When I am on a web page, I have to click the mouse right button and select open link on new tab or windows to be able to visit the link from the same page. For example when I am on ollusa.edu, if I click academic and select schools and collages, the page will not open. I have to right click on the mouse and select open link on new tab or windows. I cleared my cache and cookies and still have the issue.

My Firefox Web Browser automatically, and unstoppably removes / before the word "wright" in URLs, leaving me unable to access any sites where the URL contains "/wright" or "/~wright". Is there any obvious reason why it is doing this? Can I work around this somehow? The site I am trying to access is http://www.astro.ucla.edu/~wright/CosmoCalc.html .
