Description

While using mozilla, I tried to switch from one open window to another; 
mozilla froze, system clock froze, cursor would move. Would not allow 
force quit. Upon restart, as soon as mozilla window opened, freezed 
occured again. Now I can't use Mozilla at all.
Build ID, Operating System, What website, Talkback ID(maybe not applicable in your
 case), Reproducibility?

Also, sounds like either corrupt mozilla (aggh) or corrupt profiles. Try a new one 
(using profile manager) and see what it does.

I was instructed to create a new profile. I did. It works. Now I can't delete 
the original profile - trying to causes a similar freeze.

Michael, please answer the questions in comment 1:

What Build ID are you reporting the problem against?

Were any TalkBack reports generated following the crashes? (Ensure you have it enabled)

this sounds like a file issue, but perhaps we can get hints from the profile
manager people

unreproducable. Also,
Mozilla CFM build is dead.
