Firefox 86 is borderline unusable on my computer

This has been an issue of mine for the past few days and I can't find a fix. I've tried to troubleshoot it and I've repeatedly reinstalled Firefox several times. The application either:

a. Doesn't open at all after I click the icon b. Freezes, refuses to register inputs and/or crashes c. Works temporarily, eventually turns into part B

My OS is Windows 10 and I want Firefox to be my default browser but it's not running properly at all on my computer. I have sent multiple crash reports because of this. Does anyone know what the problem could be? This has never happened to me before.

same here. I sign into youtube and it won't display ANYTHING. all my drivers up to date, tried restarting, version 86 is epic fail. I don't know what firefox creators think they are doing but this is a downgrade not an update. it's unusable right now and they coincidentally 'aren't accepting feedback right now' Attached image below shows what I get now while trying to use youtube signed in. nothing is usable.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}
