As a Windows veteran of nearly three decades, I’ve seen some terrible sights, things that would chill the blood of a lesser man. The terrible Blue Screen of Death is an old friend, for instance. That was pretty much the favorite mode of my last laptop.
But I had never before seen what is pictured above. That’s what greeted me when I opened my laptop this morning.
Apparently, it’s a thing. A bad thing.
I don’t know what caused it, but I strongly suspect a Firefox update. Ever since I recovered from the Pink Screen, I’ve been unable to use Firefox at all. A home screen of sorts comes up — a different one from what I’ve seen in the past, which is what tells me there must have been an update — but not the home screens I had programmed into the settings.
And anyway, I can’t call up ANY websites on the browser. But if I try the very same URL on Chrome, it works fine.
Oh, and turning it off and back on again didn’t fix the Mozilla problem. I guess my next step is uninstalling and reinstalling.
Any thoughts, guidance, advice…?
