Ah ok, somehow I thought firefox hangs or fails to start for you. That's 
probably an effect of enabling WebRender by default for XFCE/KDE with 
Intel/AMD GPU so likely for you. Try disabling webrender in about:config 
(|gfx.webrender.force-disabled=true). Which GPU? If Intel are you using 
modesetting driver?
