Yeah, I heard about the big MS one. Didn't know about FF.
I guess it has been a couple years since I've done a full wipe.. boo. I hate resetting.
Unless you run backup software, fairly religiously, these kind of problems will keep happening.
It's not just Windows 10, although, with Win 10 it does seem to happen a bit more often. Possibly because MS has moved a large chuck of their QC, to the users of the Win 10 OS.
Backup software is the way to go. Do a clean install, get everything working perfectly, make a backup. Make a new backup say the beginning of every month (to protect against bad Windows Updates), and make a backup before doing any major changes to your setup. Even on a HDD, a backup only takes about 8 mins or so... same for the restore from backup.
Unlike System Restore (which only "merges" the older restore point with the current state of the OS. Backup software, completely removes the OS installation and replaces it with the backup.
It'll pretty much solve any problem in about 8 mins.
