Won't load pages on desktop

more options

For the last week or so, Firefox on my desktop has opened to a blank new tab screen, and won't load any other pages. It won't even load support.mozilla.org, I'm asking this on my phone! I've had to use Edge on the occasions that I CAN'T use my mobile for the task; printing shipping labels, downloading a better art program, that sort of thing. I'd really rather NOT use Edge at all, thanks.

You can check for issues caused by a corrupted or incomplete Visual C++ installation that is missing runtime components (Redistributable Packages) required by Firefox.

See "Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019":

@cor-el what do you mean by that. I'm not at all a programmer and am ABSOLUTELY a novice at any kind of code.
