Having errors with downloads

Hello, I recently updated my Firefox, & ever since then when I would try to access windows explorer -mostly by opening the download folder- through Firefox I would get an error saying that the action wasn't supported or something, so i just went there manually. Recently, it won't even show that error when trying to access downloads (it simply does nothing), & I have been having problems with windows explorer not opening when double clicking on the icon every so often; requiring a reset to fix it.

I was wondering if these are somehow related, & whether Firefox or something else was the problem. I've ran all the system scans that Windows recommended, but found no problems. Can you verify if this is a Firefox problem or other issue?

Also, I blocked my username for security purposes, hope that's not a problem
