Will not load anything. It will start up in a new tab, cannot open about:config, cannot open settings, bookmarks, nothing. It will not go anywhere, do anything or show anything at all.

Did what it said on backwards compatibility to 8 and sure enough, closed it and reopened it and it works. And yes, I am using Webroot also!

Could this be relevant? A couple of other users identified Webroot (security software) as blocking 64-bit Firefox 97 -- released today -- from running properly: If you are still running an earlier release of Firefox, this would not be your issue.
