Firefox Nightly will freeze on opening in the first instance on Windows 11 about 75% of the time.

I have to open a new instance for it to load. Old instance stays frozen and eventually throws up an error

Please explain the problem in detail. What happens? What is/are the exact error message(s) ?

Unfortunately, I'm not getting anything useful in ways of an error message - just a generic Windows "Firefox Nightly is not responding". I've attached the screenshot.

Would love to know how I can help provide more information.

Will test safe mode now, but the issue doesn't replicate 100% of the time in non-safe, so we'll see if I can get it to replicate or not.

Hey Seburo!

Unfortunately Firefox is not logging any of these crashes. The app hangs before Firefox even opens.

The list is here:

We have been seeing many problems with this;

You can check for issues caused by a corrupted or incomplete Visual C++ installation that is missing runtime components (Redistributable Packages) required by Firefox, especially VCRUNTIME140_1.dll.

Install both 32-bit and 64-bit "Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019" downloads, (x86: vc_redist.x86.exe and x64: vc_redist.x64.exe) from https://support.microsoft.com/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

Early returns are good on this. It seemed to trigger when there was an update to install to Nightly, FWIW. Does this tend to replicate itself in that scenario?
