Firefox crashes constantly
Using Win 10. Firefox started crashing all of a sudden, giving error message. Uninstalled and reinstalled, worked for a short time, then started crashing again. Starts to open then shuts down. Was able to launch Firefox from the Start menu selecting a website from browser history under Firefox but that stopped working as well. Tried using Chrome and Edge to download a fresh version of Firefox, both having same issue.
Tried multiple troubleshooting steps from various websites, but nothing is helping. Everything else on the PC is working fine except for the browsers. Updating Win 10 now to see if that helps.
Data being submitted on another PC as still troubleshooting the PC with the crashing.

Maybe check the Windows Event Viewer logs to see if that gives more information.
Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support to see if that has effect.
