I was asked to update to the latest Firefox . Now It no longer allows me to access the internet ( My other browsers allowed me access to internet) and all I get is a blank white page. Did a reset but no use so I uninstalled and re installed Firefox. Now at the end of the installation process all I get is error code Oxc 0000005. I have then removed my anti virus in case that was not allowing Firefox to work and then uninstalled and re installed Firefox but I still get the same error code Oxc0000005. Windows 10 is up to date and Suggestions please

hi, we had a few users describing similar symptoms on windows 10 when they had firefox run in compatibility mode for win7 - can you check if this is the case for you and if so disable any compatibility settings? https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/15523-change-compatibility-mode-settings-apps-windows-10-a.html
