    OK. looks like I fixed it. Started FF in safe mode, disabled all add-ons, reset FF (took 3 tries), set all options for history in safe mode and than re enabled all add-ons, now all works like it should.

    When I opened FF, I keep getting a damn box opening 'checking compatibility' - it was so annoying I binned the lot.

    I stopped using FF because every time I opened it I got a flash screen telling me it was checking compatibility - EVERY TIME. Surely in this day and age, it only needs to check this, if at all, when installed. Damn nuisance so don't touch. Compatibility should be checked before release.

    Maybe you should look at something external giving you trouble with FF and compatibility popup. I noticed that only when updating or installing FF, never later on. What about "Telemetry" and "Health report" ? "Always check if FF is default browser" ?
    I see that you have some problems with IE too, could be connected in some way.
