Hello, after doing a Firefox update my browser has stopped working. Right now it is only displaying blank pages and I can not even display the "Options" page. I have tried restarting in safe mode and doing a uninstall/reinstall and the problem is still present. The only page I have been able to pull up is the trouble shooting page (which the text version is attached).

Some problems occur when your Internet security program was set to trust the previous version of Firefox, but no longer recognizes your updated version as trusted. Now how to fix the problem: To allow Firefox to connect to the Internet again;

  • Make sure your Internet security software is up-to-date (i.e. you are running the latest version).
  • Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see

Configure firewalls so that Firefox can access the Internet. {web link}

Thanks Fred, I am using Windows 10 Firewall. I went and removed Firefox from the firewall list and readded c:/program files/mozilla firefox/firefox.exe. Still no luck so I uninstalled again, then pulled down version 63 and installed that. That version works ok, then Firefox installed version 64 and then it did not work again. So I uninstalled 64, installed 63 and turned off automatic update. Any thoughts?
