I am not able to start firefox after the latest upgrade

Posted

I tried starting firefox 57 in safe mode and while there is some activity, the browser does not open as it normally should. I have attached a screenshot of what I see - where do I go from here. This is in safe mode.

Windows 10 . Firefox 57.

I was able to make some progress by doing a "reset" firefox option when you start FF in Safe mode. I able to access the internet. After I minimize the window - leave it minimized for 2-3 mins - I am not able to restore the window. The same window as what I have attached earlier.

Did you try Firefox in Safe mode?

Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Safe websites. Is the problem still there?

Let me try to restate the problem that I am facing :

1. Firefox starts in normal mode - I am able to get to my regular webpages. Not a problem. 2. When I minimize the window and certain amount of time has lapsed - the minimized window no longer restores to normal state. It just sits there. Screen share attached in the first post. 3. I have tried safe mode, reset and fresh install of firefox etc. no of it seems to help. 4. This problem started after the new 57 upgrade. I am running Windows 10. Let me know if you need additional information.

Switching to a 32-bit version seems to have solved the problem. That;s fine by me. Appreciate your help ! Thanks.
