After updating to Firefox 70s, my Firefox can no longer load websites when the system is running in Windows 7 Normal Mode.
After initially opening Firefox: When trying to access a regular website such as mozilla.org, either by entering a url in the address bar, or clicking on one of the bookmarks, Firefox gives absolutely no response. When trying to click on the menu items such as Add-ons or Options that open a configuration page, or typing in the address bar about:(whatever), I get no response at all too. The only exception is when I click the Help->Troubleshooting Information item in the menu. This one alone loads the page in a new tab normally.
And in the same tab that the Troubleshooting Information loaded, I am able to load other configuration pages by typing about:(whatever) in the address bar. Opening a new tab to type in about:(whatever), however, will result in Firefox giving no response just like before. Also at this point, menu items like Add-ons and Options that before had been returning no response when clicked, will now open up new tabs that load the list of add-ons or the various configuration options like normal. When it comes to regular webpages, however, after I click on Help->Troubleshooting Information and enter a website url into the address bar of that same tab, Firefox will show the spinning wheel, but will never load the webpage.
In addition, when I exit Firefox, where before updating it only took seconds, now it will take minutes before the firefox.exe process closes.
All of the symptoms described above DO NOT occur when I boot into Windows 7 Safe Mode. Firefox will run normally and properly load all kinds of configuration tabs and webpages using my regular old profile.
I had tried many of the other suggestions on the support site, such as creating a new profile, refreshing Firefox, reinstalling Firefox, downgrading Firefox to 50s & 60s versions, reallowing Firefox on my firewall software, and even uninstalling my firewall/antivirus software, yet none of them had helped. I am still able to have Firefox properly run in Windows 7 Safe Mode but go haywire in Windows 7 Normal Mode.
If anybody has any idea what is going on, then any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Since updating to 72.0.2 on a Mac, CSS mask-size no longer works. Any element with the mask-image no longer displays, removing the mask-size from the CSS, everything displays again, but obviously without the mask element.
