White screen whenever I open Firefox.
Whenever I start Firefox, a white screen shows up. I saw a similar question to this, but the solution doesn’t help me. The problem started when I downloaded an installer. I tried to start Firefox, but it gives an error, so I tried uninstalling and restalling, and now it shows new tab on top, and nothing else. Whenever I tried to go on a website, nothing happens. Please help, and thank you in advance.

If you want to reinstall Firefox, follow the instructions below. If you just want to remove it, disregard the install instructions.
Let’s do a full clean re-install;
Note: Firefox comes in three or more folders on all computers. They are;
Maintenance: (Programs Folder) <Windows Only> Firefox itself: (Programs Folder) And two folders in the profile of each user on the computer for each Firefox profile for that user.
If you remove the Firefox folder, the user profiles would not be affected.
Save the file. Then Close Firefox.
Using your file browser, open the Programs Folder on your computer.
Windows: C:\Program Files C:\Program Files (x86) Note: Check Both Folders
Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-download-and-install-firefox-mac
Linux: Check your user manual. If you installed Firefox with the distro-based package manager, you should use the same way to uninstall it. See Install Firefox on Linux; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/install-firefox-linux
If you downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder Firefox in your home directory. http://www.mozilla.org/firefox#desktop ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Look for, and remove any Mozilla or Firefox program folders. Do not remove the Mozilla Thunderbird folder if there is one.
Do Not remove any profile folders.
After rebooting the computer, run a registry scanner if you have one. Then run the installer. +++++++++++++++++++++++++++ If there is a problem, start your Computer in safe mode and try again.

Just one more question, where do you find the Profile Folders? I am not the techiest guy so I’m sorry if this sound stupid.
Type about:profiles<enter> in the address bar.
