Firefox has killed itself :/

I have done everything i can think of. Uninstalled, done a CC Cleaner sweep and restarted and nothing has worked. Every time i load Firefox it comes up with:

<window id="main-window"
^

This is even after the uninstall and reinstall. No idea why it has died or anything. From what i have found it seems that it MIGHT be related to an extension issue, though as i cant get Firefox tyo load to be able to get to extension there is nothing i can do, even if that is the reason :/

Anyone got any ideas???

There is still probably something in a hidden folder. Turn on hidden folders and look in local or appdata or something that should be in your user folder. Can't give you specifics since I use Linux but I know those directories exist.

This link explains how to find the appdata folder.

Yes, I recall it being in users/(name of profile, or possibly default)/appdata/roaming. I no longer have it installed, so also am not positive.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Your "profile" is probably broken. This is where addons and settings and history and bookmarks is saved. The profile won't get removed when you uninstall Firefox because it's saved somewhere in your user's directories and not in "C:\Program Files". When you then reinstall Firefox, you'll be back on your old profile.

There's a way to start Firefox in a "profile manager" mode, where you can create alternative profiles and switch what the default is. I don't remember how that works, so you'll have to google that.

I went from Firefox to Vivaldi about 3 weeks ago, have been very impressed. Don't think I will be going back actually. Give Vivaldi with ublock origin addon a try.

Consider re-installing firefox and using Iobit Uninstaller to uninstall it with its most aggressive settings. (Don't reboot mid process! Wait until IObit is finished!) After that, scan your registry with the Wise or TweakNow registry tools and wipe out anything FireFox.

Vivaldi is good on linux, too...

Eh what? Start FF in safe mode, or start FF with another profile so it doesn't use your possibly corrupted one, or delete your profiles, or delete everything related to FF and install it again: program, user profiles and any extensions, the whole thing.

You also do not state the issue clearly as to what happens after you launch FF, what opens or not, does it start but only show some odd webpage or it opens and closes immediately with no error, or it throws some error with a description and option to report it to Mozilla?
...

A reinstall of FF will not do you much good as it's unlikely FF is broken, it's your profile, as said before start FF in safe mode, or start FF with a new clean profile.

firefox.exe -P

hold shift when starting up


Vivaldi is nothing but a Chrome. There is only FF, Chrome and Edge as a main browser, everything else is a minority and some rename/reskin of Chrome or FF.
