  1. Can No longer Open Firefox or iTunes - One or More Threads of xxx are


    This is a recent occurrence. Firefox sometimes starts after about 5 minutes but iTunes not at all.

    In the Task Manager, under Details, Analyze Wait Chain I'll see the message -

    One or More Threads of xxx are waiting to finish network I/O

    Firefox is at the latest version,and I've disabled all extensions and the startpage is set to google.com.

    I've uninstalled and reinstalled both. These are the only 2 apps affected. Chrome works just fine.

    Any thoughts? Thanks so much for your help!

    "One or more network protocols are missing"

    Thanks for the support, but we are in the same boat. The internet doesn't work any more. Also, I found out I cannot print anymore either. I didn't ask for these downloads, but they do it and my computer does't work right now. I haven't been able
    to call anyone to get it fixed either.

  6. Just tried starting FF in safe mode - still took about 5 minutes to start using the command

    firefox -safe-mode

    I should have mentioned that I've already disabled all of the extensions and hw acceleration. I've also performed a reset several times as well in the past.

    I renamed my profile and started FF - still see issue with thread waiting to finish network i/o.

    This is only happening with FF and iTunes.

    Thanks again for your help. I have 2 machines - both Win 10 and this is only happening on one of them.

    Next step is to create a new Firefox profile, as yours may be corrupt; renaming it will have no effect; Fx does not use the name you give a profile, which is there so that, if you have more than one profile, you will know which one is which.
