I had an unresponsive firefox window with a dozen or more tabs. The last time this happened I closed it with the mouse via GUI but session restore didnt work. This time I decided to kill firefox via the terminal using the process ID. I was able to restore this session after restarting firefox but things such boomarking, etc didn't work. I restarted firefox again and bookmarks are working now but I can't log into my email using Microsoft outlook and other websites like reddit, stackoverflow etc. Not all websites are like this, some are working.

What I tried:

I tried deleting the cookies.sqlite and cookies.sqlite.bak in my firefox directory but it didn't work. I tried restarting firefox in safe mode without extensions but this also didn't work. Finally I tried logging into my email using firefox private mode but that also didnt work.

I have included a screenshot of a strange error I got when trying to login to my email

Hi, fyi : version 60.0.1 is current version. Suggest update and or install to get there to see if fixes the issue.

No screenshot made it.
