Firefox on a Windows 10 (Build 19042.1052) that

It starts and seems to run without hanging or crashing. I can enter an url, but it doesn't do anything. The Viewport just stays white. Also nothing happens if clicking on a bookmark. Or the settings. I was able to open the about:support page via the menu, but not by entering it into the adress bar.

Here are the things that I already tried to no avail: - updated to the latest version - Incognito mode - Troubleshoot mode - graphics card driver is up to date - reinstallation - Cleaning Firefox - delete firefox profile - clearing the start cache - downgrade to version 88.0.1

It is weird, that the about:support page works when opened from the menu but not when entered into the adress bar, right? This means that content can be displayed, but you cannot navigate to it via the address list. But then why don't bookmarks work either?

By the way: It is not a network Issue. Chrome and Edge work, and also the problem persists across multiple different networks.

Thanks for your answer @Seburo Have you read my Post closely? I cannot enter anything into the adressbar. I haven't tried "about:crashes" specifically, but anything else like "about:config", "about:support", "about:addons" and so on. Is there a way to get to that page via the menu, or from outside the browser?

@TyDraniu Yes!! Your Solution worked! Do you have any background information why that happens and why running vc_redist.exe helps?

You can read through these bug reports for the background on why installing or uninstalling other software can cause this problem and why installing vc_redist fixes it:
