System: Windows 10 32-bit laptop

Problem: non-responsive UI on one laptop only. This includes inability to configure local options. nothing works. Menus drop down, but no matter what is selected, the selection does not highlight, menu hides normally but no action is taken by the browser

If I manually type in the url it sits there. no spinning cursor, nothing.

Browser does NOT crash... It simply sits there doing nothing. All other browsers work fine.

What I have done Restart the laptop Double check Firewall permissions Ran a scan before and after installation (0 threats found) Logged in as administrator as well as user account Ran performance monitor nothing alarming noted Uninstall and Reinstall. (Problem still exists)

If I remember, there was a McAfee Web Advisor icon on the top right of the Firefox browser, just to the left of the "hamburger" icon. But it's not there, it disappeared. Yes, it is enabled, and it is showing in Chrome. So where did it go and how do I get it back?

Thanks.

Prior to formatting pc, I had McAfee Site Advisor installed, was recognized by Firefox, showing on top right of browser. After formatting pc, McAfee Site Advisor installation now not recognized by Firefox, i.e., not showing up on top right of browser, not even showing up in add-ons. Is it blocked now by FF, and if so, any good suggestions? I like the idea of something next to a site showing level of safety. Thanks so much :)

Since just yesterday Firefox wants a master password every time I open a site that wants a log in. I updated just now and it didn't help. It seems like it started just after I installed McAfee Total Protection. I don't really want to wipe all my passwords out of Firefox to reset. I did'nt set a master password so i don't know why it thinks I have one.
