        If you have  0 patch installed, when you update to Firefox 73 it will crash Firefox.  Uninstall 0patch until a fix is offered.

        FWIW, I purchased a license for 0Patch Pro for one of my Win 7 Pro x64 machines on 2020.02.11 (after running the free version for fourteen days); it appears to be working without any issues.

        Firefox ESR (x64), both the installed and portable versions, were updated to version 68.5.0 yesterday; both continue to work flawlessly (as do Slimjet, x32 & x64).

        I have had 0Patch installed since 11/18/19, updated the Microsoft January updates at the end of January (.NET,  Security and Quality, and Servicing Stack  – prior to that I had been Group B) and, since I had been a Firefox Beta user, had already run into the crashing issue earlier last month. I had reverted to the Firefox release version at that time and solved the problem.

        Today the problem recurred with Firefox’s update to 73 (64bit). I implemented the Command Prompt fix (linked below) that was given in the blog post on the 0Patch site (and was also sent to me as a paid user), which solved the problem while they work on a redesign so as not to conflict.

        As an added benefit, I was able to return to Firefox Beta and am now running 74.0b3 with no problem. I still notice several 0Patch micropatches being implemented as necessary so everything seems to be functioning as it should.

        For me uninstalling 0Patch was not necessary.
