I want to report that updating to version 73.0 today - Feb. 11, 2020, caused Firefox to stop working entirely. I could not find answers in Support and ended up doing a system restore on my laptop in order to go back to Version 72.0. Now Firefox is working again. Never had this problem with previous updates. IF THIS UPDATE HAS BUGS can someone please try to fix them? Thank you!

I don't use any of that. I use AVG. Never had any problems with anything else until this one.

Similar problem but not exactly the same. Updated to Firefox Version 73.0 yesterday (Feb. 13, 2020) and today can't do a Google search. Am running Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. When I try to search for something I get the box about "Did Not Connect: Potential Security Issue" I have started a new thread about this.

I changed Firefox browsers to the Nightly version. Seems to be working fine so far.
