Firefox 75 (and Chrome) is crashing immediately on startup

Starting on Wednesday Firefox and Chrome on Windows 10 both started crashing immediately on startup. They would flash up a blank window for a split second and then close again. There is no trace of it being open in Task Manager. Microsoft Edge works fine. This has happened on 2 separate computers running Windows 10, but not on a third. Perhaps conincidentally, this happened after a Windows Update, but only on 2 of the updated computers and not on the third. There is also a fourth computer that was not updated that this did not happen on. I tried rolling back the update on one of the computers, but that didn't help. I tried reinstalling Firefox.

There is no error/crash code.

I cannot even open Firefox in Safe Mode (hold shift while opening).

As it will not open, there is nothing that I can try that involves going into Firefox's settings.

One final interesting note...while it wasn't working on Wednesday, it suddenly started working on Thursday. But today (Friday) it is, again, not working (but on only one of the computers).
