This morning I launched Firefox on my PC by opening a link in discord, I was greeted with a blank page, the link showed up in the search-bar and the tab icon shows up, but there was no content whatsoever on the rest of the page. I tried restoring my last browsing session, and all tabs where similarly blank.
Attached an image of what I see on a new tab page as well as any other page.
The only settings menu I was able to open was "more troubleshooting info" page, by which i mean it is the only thing that actually loaded any content.
Things I have tried:
-Refreshing Firefox. It seem to go through the process, but when it is done the pages are similarly blank.
-Uninstalling, then reinstalling. I reset my computer after uninstalling and then re-downloaded Firefox, same results.
-Logging out of Firefox. I didn't really expect this to do anything but tried just in case.
-Refreshing the cashe. I used the shortcut to open the browser history clear, and cleared cookies and cashe.
-Opening Firefox in safe mode, has the same issue.
-Used my anti-malware Webroot Security to check my computer for malware, nothing turned up.
-Re-allowing Firefox through windows firewall. Did this by removing it from the list of allowed programs, then adding it again.
-Ensuring my compatibility preferences didn't have anything selected.
-Through the troubleshooting page I was able to access the about:config page (this page would not load if i opened a new tab and typed in about:config, ONLY if I changed the URL from about:support, the only page i could load, to about:config) and ensuring that browser.newtabpage.enabled was set to true.
Firefox is working perfectly fine on my laptop, and I was working last night on my PC, the only difference being that was a small windows update. It has never done this before.
