  2. FireFox


    That's why I suggested this for starters, for the issue you report:How to get the old about:config page back in Firefox :)

    Firefox - Profile in Use

    Scroll down on that page to the "Solutions" section.
    The easiest way is to open the Windows Task Manager and to kill the Firefox process from there.
    If that does not work, then proceed to the next steps in that tutorial: remove the "profile lock" file, etc.

    Please let us know how that goes.

    Thanks,
    MM

    Please provide the following information with us to understand the issue better.


    • Is the issue occurs in Microsoft Edge?

      As the initial troubleshooting steps, I would suggest you to check all the available Windows Updates. Installation of recent Windows Updates should fix the issue.

      If the issue still persists, then try updating the Display driver and check. Here is the steps:
    • Press Windows Key + R on your desktop screen to go to run command box.
    • Type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter.
    • In Display Adapter, expand Display Adapter, right-click , and then click
      Update.
    If the issues persists ,only with firefox then i suggest you to contact firefox support.
