Firefox crashing and unable to open start menu

Hi there,

Firefox suddenly crashed on my laptop earlier today, I sent an error report and tried to reopen Firefox but it crashed again straight away. When I try to open the Start menu it does not respond, same with when I try to open Microsoft Edge. If I try to open Settings the box will open but then immediately crash. I can open Documents, File Explorer, Word and Acrobat, they seem to be unaffected. I have tried turning off and on and restarting with no success. I can open Firefox in safe mode but if I then try to open a new page it crashes. I've run a Norton check and no viruses were detected.

I followed the instructions for finding submitted Crash Reports and the Crash ID is bp-a4997142-2eba-4cbd-ba43-b64f80200907.

I was just using the laptop for work using sites I commonly use. I did download a new version of iTunes and iCloud this morning, not sure if this would have affected it.

I'd be grateful if anyone can help me or provide any advice.

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
