Firefox frozen on opening, even with all extensions etc. disabled via safe mode

Firefox won't open correctly: my pinned tabs are there, the new tab is there, but it's unusable. The close, minimize and maximize buttons don't show up, I can't interact with the menu except for "Firefox" (not file, edit, view, ...). Safe mode works, in which I disabled my extensions, hardware acceleration, etc. but it doesn't help. I've also deleted and reinstalled Firefox.

I'm on a MacBook pro, running High Sierra 10.13.6

Well, I've been using it in safe mode for about an hour, did nothing more than what I stated before and it's working again now.

One more mystery to my checklist.
