Firefox won't respond, I have tried all suggestions, lost history, favorites, Nvidia, and still no solutions from Firefox?
Since Windows 10 updates, Firefox is unusable, starts up but won't access anything. Says, not responding, I can only X out of it and use another browser. Cannot access saved favorites or history etc. I have uninstalled Nvidia as suggested, but it seems to have made my computer worse. This is a quite new laptop that I am using, and I only use it for business or browsing and it is causing considerable problems. Any suggestions for a very tech unsavvy person?

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 or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.
Remove all rules for Firefox and the plugin-container 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 the plugin-container process and the updater process.
Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen or hold down the Shift key) to see if that has effect.
