Hi! Recently, in my laptop, Firefox started freezing at every single startup; after force shutdown and restart, though, it works flawlessly each time, and for the whole duration of the session at the computer. Can anyone please suggest a solution?

My laptop set-up is practically identical to that of my PC, but the latter doesn't exhibit the same malfunction. I've tried anything I could, including reinstalling the b… (read more)

My laptop set-up is practically identical to that of my PC, but the latter doesn't exhibit the same malfunction.

I've tried anything I could, including reinstalling the browser, removing all of my bookmarks (about 10,000) and addressing extensions (Decentraleyes, Default Bookmark Folder, Disable Tab Detach, Flagfox, I don't care about cookies, Keepa, Notifier for Gmail, Privacy Badger, To Google Translate, uBlock Origin, Undo Close Tab, Video DownloadHelper and Youtube's Annotations No More), but not even safe mode improved the situation in the least. Windows Defender also hasn't detected any malware and my web surfing habits are as safe as it gets.

The only deeper data I could gather is that the problem manifests with a progressive, rapid surge in CPU and RAM usage; the former, for example, is saturated to its total 16 GB in a matter of about 20 seconds.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 7586 with Windows 11 64 bit; Firefox version is the latest, 100.0, and, by the way, none of the recent updates has improved the situation.

Thanks to anyone who might come up with an educated guess!

On www.kindpng.com the code for "submit" a form doesn't show. A page comes up with "false" written in the upper left corner.

It is the same after going through the pic-a-picture verification on other parts of the website to submit contact or form.

Can you please help?

Is this a Firefox problem or a computer problem?

In Firefox, but not in Edge or Chrome, the shaded boxes enclosing text or delineating the page (on any web page, or in a PDF viewed in the browser) are missing.

In Gmail, for example, all the navigation elements above the list of emails are invisible, e.g. the little box and caption for selecting all the emails on the page, or for refreshing the page; and further, if all the emails are selected, the boxes for: Archive, Report Spam, Delete, Mark As Read, Snooze, Add To Tasks, Move to Inbox, More ... are invisible.

At WashingtonPost.com, for example, the banner ads that automatically display at the top of the home page, and at intervals throughout the page, and the shading around headlines on other pages, do not appear.
