I need some things to look at. Debian 11.4 Bullseye 16 CPU 72GB I just got the Mate desktop working. Thought I'd find a cool wallpaper. Site said it needed to load an extension. I tried to escape but now my firefox fails to load even in troubleshoot mode. It builds the window frame I can almost touch the menu and gone.

Checked .mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/ and it's empty checked .mozilla/extensions/ and it's emtpy Got an install time InstallTime20220718130424

as I click on Firefox Icon in menu the screen pops alert that says: "Firefox closed unexpectedly while starting....try to resolve the problem in troubleshooting in SafeMode."

tailing syslog: tail -f /var/log/syslog gives this clue: oom-kill:constraint=CONTRAINT_NONE, task=firefox-esr total-vm:672432kb Kernel Out Of Memory killed process pgtables:840kb oom-score_addj:0

I can add more detail if I know where to look. OOM with 72GB ?

Try downloading Firefox from Mozilla, run it from the folder and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

For the crashing, have you tried strace? Do you have the same issue with another user account?

Do you run Firefox in a virtual machine ?

Try to start Firefox via a terminal window to check for possible error messages.
