After update today, firefox will only do the "wait circle" for 10 seconds or so and then nothing else. Facebook is my home page, so I suspect that the problem is here. Tried the firewall reset with no result. If Facebook won't work, I'll have to leave firefox behind. Please fix. Thanks!

Thanks for asking. I think this https://goo.gl/9iH8U1 should help.

Try to start Firefox in Safe Mode to see if that works.

  • Windows: hold down the Shift key while starting Firefox
  • Mac: hold down the Options key while starting Firefox

It is possible that your firewall or other security software blocks or restricts Firefox without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program. Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full, unrestricted, access to install for Firefox and other Firefox processes and the updater process.

See:

Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software is causing problems.
