I need help getting my Firefox running again. Today it crashed (due to lack of available RAM), I had to shut it down in the task manager. When I restarted the browser, it couldn't load any content anymore. That means the upper control bars of the browser window work as usual, the lower part of the window stays completely blank.
I can't load any websites, local servers or routers, no local content such as images, or offline htmls, nor internal pages such as about:config.
What I tried so far:
- disabeling hardware acceleration
- disabeling proxy settings
- starting firefox in safe mode
- refreshing firefox
- reinstalling firefox (73.0)
- reinstall with profile reset
- reinstall with manual deleting Program Files\Mozilla Firefox and AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox
...maybe even more.
Interestingly, even firefox portable shows the same behavior now, though at least one page was able to load after 15 minutes or so.
I also noticed that the firefox.exe is still active in the taskmanager after I close the browser (under user tab, not under processes) - I have no idea if this has to do with the problem.
I would really appreciate any help!
