Firefox desktop browser stuck on endless launch loop

To start, I am using Windows 10 and Firefox 75.0. I have recently reinstalled Firefox and have run into a problem that makes the program unusable. When launching the browser after installation, it will never open and instead get stuck endlessly closing and opening a process in task manager. It is also not possible to terminate the process without either restarting my computer or uninstalling, as it will give an error saying the process does not exist anymore. This also seems to open and close consent.exe in the system32 files endlessly. I've tried multiple previous versions of Firefox in order to try and mitigate this problem, but all of them encounter the same result. I've uninstalled, deleted all of my profiles, cleared all files in appdata, and even tried deleting registry files related to the browser, but the problem persists. A similar problem seems to have been encountered by another user, but their problem seemed to fix itself (https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1589424). Firefox also doesn't seem to produce any errors with this issue, so I am unsure of what to do.

EDIT: As of this writing I figured out the problem. It turns out my user account control panel had been disabled and was trying to launch itself to verify permissions. My user account did not have full control over the application, hence UAC trying to activate. Changing my account permissions solved this problem.

Bing and Google and facebook are not welcome. They have this huge bluster of entitlement. If i wanted them I would invite. It is like if I sell you a product at your door and instead of thanking you and leaving I barge in and insist you buy something again and again. To top it off I refuse to leave and apparently the law is on my side. I dig in and sell and push and crush even any attempt for you to just ignore me. I am a one percenter (1%) and I am fully entitled to take and take because life owes me a living. Sorry 4 the soapbox.

What I want is a Firefox browsing experience minus the above. Will I need to learn code to mold my own UI?

I greatly appreciate any consideration.

I installed Firefox just recently and when viewing my favorites it did not import all of them from IE8. I tried to manually import them and it goes through the motions as if it is importing but it never brings over all my favorites list.

If I dont get an answer in two days, I will simply delete firefox and go back to IE.

After the crash I reinstalled my applications including Firefox 18. I restored my data files from backup, and I think all my bookmarks got placed in my Favorites folder. I also think Norton 360 backed up my saved passwords. Can anyone tell me how to get my bookmarks to where they will get recognized by Firefox and how to restore the passwords? I'm pretty sure I was using Firefox 17 at the time.

Thanks!
