all versions of firefox freeze up about 1 hour after use. I have to hard reset to get my win 10 to reload. I am afraid to use firefox because this has happened dozens of times in the last month. no other browser does this.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web Link} by holding down the <Shift>
key, and then starting Firefox. Is the problem still there?

I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck. Have you tried Firefox Safe Mode?

more options

Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen or hold down the Shift key) to see if that has effect.

Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.

Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.
