firefox will not start. Cannot end process in task manager

已張貼

As of this morning, I cannot get Firefox to work. I am using Windows 7. I click to start firefox and it looks like the program starts. It opens a Window with the minimize, maximize, and close buttons but the window contents are blank and the load icon appears. I can minimize and maximize the window but I cannot end the program. If I use CTRL-ALT-DEL, I can see that firefox.exe is running but I cannot end the task by selecting End Process. If I try to start another instance of Firefox, I get a warning box saying "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window."

Nothing I try will end the process.

I uninstalled and re-installed Firefox but the problem persists. I tried doing a fresh install with all previous add-ons and whatnot ignored but it still won't run. I've tried running it with the anti-virus disabled as well as with Windows in Safe Mode but it won't work.

Any ideas?

Just to be sure; You may have ad/mal-ware. Further information can be found in this article; https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-caused-malware?cache=no

Run most or all of the listed malware scanners. Each works differently. If one program misses something, another may pick it up.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?


Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

Can’t try to start Firefox in safe mode because it won’t start at all so I can’t select the option. I’ve already tried booting the PC in safe mode w/ network but I get the same error.

I called for more help.

Refreshing Firefox {web link} is a LAST RESORT ! !

Refreshing Firefox -- easily fix most problems

If you're having problems with Firefox, refreshing it can help. The refresh feature fixes many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information like bookmarks and open tabs. Everything else, like user settings and add-ons, are removed. Note: Refresh saves your old profile to the desktop in a folder called Old Firefox.

Did a system restore to a session prior to the last two Windows updates I completed and that's got it working again. I'm not sure which update was the one that caused it to stop.

Does your computer have the Symantec Endpoint Security program? This would usually only be installed in a business environment. Apparently if its rule against browsers downloading executable files is enabled, Firefox breaks in the way you mentioned (or so it sounds to me): https://support.mozilla.org/questions/1264492

Hey this might help, I installed Firefox 67.0.4 which was the previous version. This works fine with AVG. I have switched off auto updates for Firefox. This way I can use Firefox and AVG.

There seems to be a conflict with the new version of Firefox and AVG/Avast. I hope someone can shed some light on this! Can anyone help???

Thanks

Hi, it was already reported to avast forum (https://forum.avast.com/?topic=228355.0) but we are not able to induce it. Clean firefox 68 and avast 19.6 seems to work without conflict. May I ask you which extensions do you use ?
