    OK, downloaded and installed 64-bit Firefox. Installation went OK and Firefox opened to my home page. Exited Firefox and it refused to start, again with the same error code.

    Going to uninstall MalwareBytes and reboot. Back shortly.

    One other thing, again, both browsers ran fine (open and close) until 4/27. Running Macrim to restore the C: drive even back to 4/16 I incur the same errors (restoring a backup to an earlier date where things ran fine should eliminate the problem, don't you think?) So, what's the common thread here?

    Is there a reason not to update or do a clean install with the latest Creator Update ?

    If you restore back to 4/16 then I would think it would work. So if not windows, what?

    When you restored using Macrium is your machine off the network. I ask since everything is basically set to auto update. You don't want that.

    If you boot in safe made with networking and start Firefox do you get same result? (or a clean boot)

    So if you look at what is common, just to rule things out, what is common between 4/27 machine and 4/16. There is overall hardware and BIOS, network (router, modem, NIC, Cable), your other storage drives and of course a Virus.

    Have you made any hardware mods in last week including BIOS changes. Did you reset modem / router (power down, wait, power on)?

    I would also shutdown machine, un-plug from wall, press power button 30 secs and restart.

    Have you uninstalled all AV's. Think you said you also had Norton.

    Now going the other way, might be an idea to get something like Hitman Pro, install and run it in Safe Mode. You said you downloaded and installed firefox 64, it worked okay, you shut it down and it wouldn't work.

    With all the things you maybe trying please ensure you have your data securely backed up, off device.

    Torre's idea could be the quickest. If you do I would clean install without storage connected and I would remove all existing partitions from C: making it a true Clean install.

    Would really be interested if Safe or Clean produce different results.

    OK, might want to upgrade to CU. Do not have that option in Update yet. How do I go about it without waiting for Update to get it automatically?

    Go to Microsoft's Media Creator Tool, download tool, run tool, create USB key. Insert, navigate to setup and double click.

    I would create a Image with a tool like Macrium Reflect so I had a firm way back. I also back up my data before OS updates.

    Basically you are following this tutorial.

    I think the problem is with MWB not playing nicely. I just recently reinstalled my OS because firefox kept crashing constantly (same with Chrome). Everything went fine and i was browsing with FF no problem. Then i go to install the latest MWB and BANG!!!! it constantly starts crashing. Uninstall MBW and the problem has gone. Hopefully a fix is around the corner. FYI my AV is SOPHOS

    my prob with FF was that it never shut down!! I would close it, do something else, then come back to look for something and would get a message telling FF was not shut down. I had to sign off sign on, to clear it. Now on Opera, currently it wont open sites but was fine 10 mins ago? Weird! But they open in IE?

    solved for me: this is set in opera:

    On startup

    Open the start page
    Continue where I left off
    Open a specific page or set of pages Set pages

    Loading of background tabs is delayed because Opera Turbo is enabled.

    I must have hit a button?
