Can you put one of those hourglass "wait" symbols to show on the next update because I never know if Firefox has booted or not and if you hit it again, it corrupts the next boot and wastes a bunch of time.

What indicates that the program has launched is the opening of its window. Obviously, something i causing the program trouble.

Was the problem still there when you opened Firefox using In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode?


Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

When it boots up, you get no indication it's loading. Unlike some that display an hourglass or wait message. I'd like indication. If you rekey(thinking it's not loading and it's loading it errors Firefox is running, close firefox or something. The restore session button won't work(can't restore) nor the new session. So you have to close it out and reboot. wastes a lot of time.

I tried to take off the hardware acceleration, per the troubleshoot and too forever to boot up. I did get the little blue wheel going around during the firefox boot. It's not worth it. But there should be something to indicate the program launched and not have to guess.
