After updating to Firefox 70s, my Firefox can no longer load websites when the system is running in Windows 7 Normal Mode.
After initially opening Firefox: When trying to access a regular website such as mozilla.org, either by entering a url in the address bar, or clicking on one of the bookmarks, Firefox gives absolutely no response. When trying to click on the menu items such as Add-ons or Options that open a configuration page, or typing in the address bar about:(whatever), I get no response at all too. The only exception is when I click the Help->Troubleshooting Information item in the menu. This one alone loads the page in a new tab normally.
And in the same tab that the Troubleshooting Information loaded, I am able to load other configuration pages by typing about:(whatever) in the address bar. Opening a new tab to type in about:(whatever), however, will result in Firefox giving no response just like before. Also at this point, menu items like Add-ons and Options that before had been returning no response when clicked, will now open up new tabs that load the list of add-ons or the various configuration options like normal. When it comes to regular webpages, however, after I click on Help->Troubleshooting Information and enter a website url into the address bar of that same tab, Firefox will show the spinning wheel, but will never load the webpage.
In addition, when I exit Firefox, where before updating it only took seconds, now it will take minutes before the firefox.exe process closes.
All of the symptoms described above DO NOT occur when I boot into Windows 7 Safe Mode. Firefox will run normally and properly load all kinds of configuration tabs and webpages using my regular old profile.
I had tried many of the other suggestions on the support site, such as creating a new profile, refreshing Firefox, reinstalling Firefox, downgrading Firefox to 50s & 60s versions, reallowing Firefox on my firewall software, and even uninstalling my firewall/antivirus software, yet none of them had helped. I am still able to have Firefox properly run in Windows 7 Safe Mode but go haywire in Windows 7 Normal Mode.
If anybody has any idea what is going on, then any help is appreciated. Thank you.

I tried to set a secondary email for my new Firefox Support account. I did receive a confirmation link email in the secondary account. when I clicked the Verify link nothing happened. after a while I used the email's view-in-browser link, which opened Edge and displayed the original email. when I clicked that Verify link I got the following error on the subsequent page.
Followed directions several times. Firefox always installs as alias. Opening FF causes disk image to appear with dialog box warning about application from web
Each time I open FF it opens as if I've just installed it. It appears in the applications folder as an alias and the disk image opens.

When I have my computer plugged into an external monitor, I want new browser windows to open on the external monitor, but they always open on the computer's monitor. I have gone through the entire process at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-and-diagnose-firefox-problems (clearing cache etc., trying safe mode, creating a new profile, refreshing Firefox, reinstalling Firefox) and the problem persists. This happens if I manually select "New Tab," "New Window," or "New Private Window" from the File menu with no existing windows open. It also happens if I use the key commands for any of these menu items. It happens if I use the menu bar on the computer's monitor or the menu bar on the external monitor. Opening a window and dragging it from the computer's monitor to the external monitor does not change anything. I've also tried using Divvy (https://mizage.com/divvy/) to move the browser window between windows with a key command, but after moving it this way nothing changes—new windows continue to open on the computer's monitor. How do I set which monitor Firefox will use for displaying new windows and/or get it to remember my preference?

Windows 10 Pro, Version 10.0.18363 Build 18363, Firefox Browser 72.0.2 (64-bit)
I've been using Firfox Sync for a little while, not exactly sure how long, but have recently had a problem. Sync was set to sync everything.
I've recently added new bookmark folders and new bookmarks on my Laptop, and then the next day when I've gone to use them they've disappeared. Repeated the process and exactly the same happens. Tried investigating the cause with success.
Earlier this week I added the new bookmark folder and a new bookmark. Went to use it less than an hour later and it had disappeared again. Checked what had been running on my Laptop, to see what might have been doing this, and the ONLY thing I could find that had run in the interveing period was Firefox Sync.
Modified my Firefox Sync settings so that NOTHING now gets syned, and then re-added the bookmark folder and the new bookmark. 3 days later it's still there, so obviously Firefox Sync was the cause.
What is Firefix Sync doing that it's reverting bookmarks back to a previous version? How do I know which copy it is making the master, Ive looked and been unable to find anything that tells me this?

When I first load firefox I have been getting the error "Firefox has stopped working for a few years now. Close the program". I do not click the link to close the program I click the "X" at the top right of the popup window. That will initiate a reload of the page. But, the page loads with none of the graphics loading. If I click the refresh button myself my page will load just fine. The only reason I even did an upgrade was because it would not let me load ANY page and kept saying my flash player was out of date and had to be updated. I did update flash but Firefox would still not work. A couple months ago I tried to do an upgrade which crashed. I ended up doing an uninstall and installed the latest version. I lost everything including my profile. After much searching for answers using Google Chrome I finally found out how to retrieve a copy of my old profile and help on how to install it. I did an upgrade this week which I had to do from Google Chrome but at least it worked and I didn't have to lose anything. But, then it would not use flash so I had to again use Google Chrome to get flash to download and install the correct update. You know... all that NPAPI and NPAPI crap because Firefox uses a different version of flash player than Internet Explorer or Google Chrome. I am currently using version 72.0.2 of Firefox. I had installed an update for Flash player before updating Firefox. I had to reinstall the version of Flash that I had just installed. I am now running version 22.214.171.1241. Firefox still stops working and I still have to jump through the hoops of reloading it. I am NOT going to update my Windows 7 Home because I do not want Windows 10. If I try to update my graphics card MS will force me to upgrade Windows. They stopped supporting Windows 7. The only good thing is that now it does not open the library item on boot that even after following instructions to turn off kept loading anyway. All that installing and reinstalling eats up a lot of my metered data allowance so the next time I will probably just uninstall Firefox. I forgot to say that NO I DO NOT OWN A SMART PHONE AND DO NOT PLAN ON GETTING ONE. MY DESKTOP PC WORKS JUST FINE. I DO NOT NEED TO DOWNLOAD AN APP EVERY TIME I WANT TO DO ANYTHING. If using computers for the past 40 years has taught me anything it is all about putting money in someone's pocket and making it easier for thieves to destroy my life. I am sorry that the youth of today are stupid and want things to be easy and do not realize the expense to their very existence. I do not want you to fix anything. I apologize for my attitude. I just needed to vent.
