1. I power on my PC with Win 10 and Win 10 starts. Chrome, Live mail etc works OK. 2. When I start Firefox for the first time after power on the PC becomes unresponsive. I can move the mouse cursor but I can't start anything, not even the Windows activity monitor or look at the screen setup by right click. If I start the activity monitor before Firefox, it freezes when I start Firefox. 3. After about 1 - 2 minutes Firefox starts and everything works OK for the rest of the day. I can start and stop Firefox without any problems. 4. There are no entries in the Win logs that seems related to Firefox. 5. I have tried most of the tips like refresh, reinstall, etc. Please note that the problem occurs only once,at the first start of Firefox after PC power on. Firefox is ver 70.0.1 and Windows is Win 10 pro ver 1809. 6. By the end of the day I shut down the PC and the next day I have the same problem.
