Hello all,

I just recently installed Fedora 35 on my PC.

Firefox does not launch at all after clicking on the icon. There's a spinning circle that appears briefly then disappears. Curiously though, there are any running firefox processes in the backgroud, just not a browser. Here is the output:

phansinh 14012 3521 15 18:30 ? 00:00:01 /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox phansinh 14019 1603 0 18:30 ? 00:00:00 /usr/libexec/cgroupify app-gnome-firefox-14012.scope phansinh 14120 14012 0 18:30 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox -contentproc -parentBuildID 20211101141339 -prefsLen 1 -prefMapSize 235228 -appdir /usr/lib64/firefox/browser 14012 true socket phansinh 14147 14012 1 18:30 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox -contentproc -childID 1 -isForBrowser -prefsLen 102 -prefMapSize 235228 -jsInit 278680 -parentBuildID 20211101141339 -appdir /usr/lib64/firefox/browser 14012 true tab phansinh 14182 14012 2 18:30 ? 00:00:00 /usr/lib64/firefox/firefox -contentproc -childID 2 -isForBrowser -prefsLen 265 -prefMapSize 235228 -jsInit 278680 -parentBuildID 20211101141339 -appdir /usr/lib64/firefox/browser 14012 true tab phansinh 14204 8362 0 18:30 pts/0 00:00:00 grep --color=auto firefox

I should mention that it also behaves the same way when I try to open it in safe mode.

I also have tried to delete the current profile and create a new one. Still without any luck here.

I am fairly new to Linux but I am pretty sure I got a good hang of the basics. Much appreciate if anyone could guide me through troubleshooting this issue.

Fedora 33, Firefox all The web page wants permission to know my location and popups a yes/no box. I click on Yes expecting the box to do it's thing and go away. It doesn't, it remains and covers everything below it and locks the page.

And the problem is getting old ...
