    Firefox 68 up to date stop working on Fedora 29

    Hi there,

    After an update, Firefox 68 stop working on Fedora 29. It opens a white screen and stays
    there forever. Firefox freezes the screen and keyboard which requires resetting the
    computer.

    How do I fix this problem?

    thanks
    Luiz

    If you open a terminal then run Firefox from with it do you get any error messages? Are there any hints in /var/log/messages after the reboot? (I'd suggest journalctl but have to confess to not really knowing how to use it well).
    Change - the only constant.

    After an update, Firefox 68 stop working on Fedora 29. It opens a white screen and stays there forever.
    I am using Firefox 68.0.2 right now with Fedora 29. Which Firefox version, exact number, doesn't work on your machine ?

    Also what was updated ? Was it Firefox itself or other packages ?

    Firefox freezes the screen and keyboard which requires resetting the computer.
    Did you try switching to another virtual terminal with Ctrl+Alt+F2-F7 ? If this works you can log in and kill the Firefox process.

    I don't know how to debug the Firefox 68 failure but you could download the latest Firefox LTS version (called ESR) to use instead and install it in /opt. I used to do this.

    The current version for Linux 64-bit is 60.9.0esr for Extended Support Release.
