Firefox does not load on first or second try then displays white screen when I try to search or go to a site
The only thing that happened yesterday was there was a Windows update (Windows 10). Now today when I try to start Firefox, it takes 4 - 5 clicks before it will even open (actually now I can't get it to open) ... but I did just change the setting to run it in compatibility mode with Windows 8 and things seem to be working correctly. Before I did this, when Firefox would open, I could not search - even in Firefox for add-ons, help, etc. All I would get is a white screen. I tried clearing my cache and even uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox but had the same issue. It seems to be "fixed" right now in compatibility mode, but it also seems like future issues may arise. Thank you for any insight!

A big issue of late is;
Could this be relevant? A couple of other users identified Webroot (security software) as blocking 64-bit Firefox 97 -- released today -- from running properly:
After consulting with WebRoot, they advised this was a known issue. The fix was to remove and reinstalled the WebRoot application.
That is most likely the issue. I am running webroot and I will take a look at your links.
Thank you so much!
