When I open any context menu (Menu, bookmarks, history), the browser hangs, as a result, I just have to kill the process, through the task manager. I tried to reinstall the browser, completely clear my PC from the browser, connect to a new account. In general, I did everything that the tips on your portal should remove performance problems. Operating system Windows 10 x64, The latest current version of the browser. On other PCs during authorization and synchronization, with the same account, it works normally.

Yes will not need to touch the OS. Microsoft will be releasing the Spring Creators Update in a few weeks anyways.

This is the best way to uninstall and save and backup uninstall Firefox. Then Delete the Mozilla Firefox Folders in C:\Program Files , C:\Program Files(x86) & C:\ProgramData Then restart system. Then run Windows Disk Cleanup. (Note: This should be Pinned and run Weekly, If never done below expect 10's of gig's) Then run it again and click the button that says Cleanup System Files. Note: your Firefox Profile is saved. But you should make a back up before you do :

Reinstall with Current Release Firefox 59.0.1 with a Full Version Installer

Hello. It's not solved the problem. I tried reinstall FF to the last version, but the problem still is.
