uTorrent does not start from Firefox

Does anyone have experience with this phenomenon:

When you click on a torrent link on a page opened in Firefox 83 (and above), the first window pops up, but the second one (in which uTorrent would come) is no longer. Nothing happens. Specifically, the entry is C: \ ProgramData \ Microsoft \ Windows \ WER \ ReportArchive \ AppCrash_uTorrent.exe....

If I revert to Firefox 82 or 78.6esr, the error will not occur.

If I choose not to download uTorrent but to download the torrent file, it works fine with all versions of Firefox.

This is super annoying. Apologies in advance. Brand New computer. Do not have access to old desktop presently. Did not export. Not an ideal situation. Downloaded & signed into my FireFox account & can not find my former computers' Bookmarks. Anywhere. Everything else (add-ons) loaded fine & am able to continue but for some reason FF erased everything. I've spent 4 hours reading through countless suggestions to no avail. Why a major company like this doesn't have 24 hour support is beyond me. Ha.

If anyone can help me locate yesterdays (literally) Bookmarks & everything else I'm missing from my FF profile, I would be grateful. Sounds like this is an ongoing issue. Been running FF since 2016. They have to exist somewhere.

After migration my user directory to a different partition, I've lost all the items in my history menu and my places.sqlite file is no longer updating. However I can see in my address bar that all my regular suggestions and recommendations are still there, still auto-completing as they did before and when I visit a site, its visit count is properly bloated. I'm not sure if this is due to account sync but I've disconnected it now. How can I reconcile my files and repopulate my history menu so I can properly search it?

I was using the beta update channel, but with the recent release, I downloaded and installed 85.0 instead of upgrading to the 86 beta. This seems to have worked fine, but About Firefox is still showing me as being on the beta update channel and asking me to upgrade to the 86 beta. How can I get on the release update channel so I can turn on automatic updates again?

I work with a MacBookPro, system macOSCatalina 10.15.7 and the current Firefox browser 84.0.2.

I am currently having problems downloading documents.

Since yesterday I can no longer call up and download the online edition of a newspaper that I have subscribed to.

This is still possible without any problems using the Safari browser.

I updated the Firefox browser on January 7th, 2021 (to 84.0.2).

I haven't changed anything to the Firefox settings since January 7th, 2021.

What should I do?

1. I had firefox in a 64bit win7 proff with relatively high specs desktop forever. Last week it started showing update notification every time i restart firefox and I choose to "remind me later" or something like that (I made the settings so that it won't auto install).

2. During that week i did restart firefox and the computer and everything was normal untill yesterday when I did something normal but I rarely do, that is i turned of the computer for more than a minute and then turned it back on. Then firefox started having trouble loading certain webpages. Things like youtube, google maps, google search, bing home page, were flawless, while things like some businesses (i remember craigslist and goodwill) and some famous podcast webpages and my wifi controlled devices struggle (take too long, then message that they were taking too long, but never show up)

3. I first "refreshed" my firefox, then reinstalled it, then when it wasn't fixed deleted the whole thing and tried installing a fresh downloaded version (I think it was 83). The downloaded installer tells me that i already had firefox and if i wish to reinstall it and after that it takes a long time to throw a message at me that starts with ("hmmmm" for "some" reason unknown reason, the installation failed to work) or very similar wording.

4. The only browser left in the computer is the microsoft one that comes with the computer and it does open the modzilla website but refuses to download the installed (obviously) so i have to download it from a windows tablet and transfer it to this computer.

any advice/insight is very much welcome

Every time I install an update my Amazon password no longer works. And, I mean every time. This has been going on for the last 6-12 updates and I am forced to go into my Amazon account from another browser and change my password. I know the password being used in FF is correct because I use LastPass. This doesn't happen with any other browser. I've loved FF for years but this is totally unacceptable and I'm starting to like Edge. Any suggestions.
