Firefox crashes after update to version 96

Hi.

I just updated my firefox to version 96. After starting it, none of the tabs is loading, regardless of the url. No problems with Chrome or other programs. After a few minutes I just get the error message telling me that firefox has crashed. I restarted Windows (10, 64 bit, updated yesterday) twice, checked my firewall, reinstalled firefox. None of it worked. :-(

It would be great, if you can offer me some help. Greetings Chris

From HN: What worked for me was disabling HTTP3 support with the 'network.http.http3.enabled' key in about:config and then restarting Firefox. Seems like it's stuck in the 'SocketThread', repeatedly doing this:
