The combination of Avast Free 19.3.2369, Firefox, and Win7 prevents CHKDSK from running properly on boot.

Is there a 'fix' that could be made to the FF engine to address this problem?

I believe that Avast is trying to address the incompatibility.

The post is near the end of a long thread.

As I put in the link there is a problem with the https scanner of Avast Free 19.3.2369 in firefox only under windows 7.

In tests with VirtualBox the https scanner worked well under Windows 10 Pro 64bits (at least in that version of 2015).

On the other hand it did not act (nor repairing the installation) on Windows 7 Ultimate of 64bits. Firefox here allows you to download:

Thing that under windows 10 with the same firefox avast blocked it.

VirtualBox 6.0 with Windows 10 Pro 64bits (year 2015) https scanner from Avast Free 19.3.2369 in Firefox 66.0.2 works.
https://secure.eicar.org/eicar.com (link blocked in the tests of Windows 10 Pro 64bits (year 2015) with Avast Free 19.3.2369 in Firefox 66.0.2)

VirtualBox 6.0 with Windows 7 Pro 64bits https scanner from Avast Free 19.3.2369 in Firefox 66.0.2 does not work, (allows download)
https://secure.eicar.org/eicar.com (link not blocked in Windows 7 Ultimate 64bits tests with Avast Free 19.3.2369 in Firefox 66.0.2)

The question of the million would be If the https scanner works in Windows 10, because it does not in Windows 7 if it uses the same version free of avast and firefox? It is a very strange thing.
