    Suggestion only.......
    Make sure the browser you are using is set as your default browser.

    Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Default Programs\Set Associations
    Check there and see what programs are set as default for the various web extensions (htm, html, shtml, url, webm, xht, xhtml, etc., etc.,

    I suggest that you continue to search for a permanent solution.
    You are now foregoing hibernation to avoid the issue. That is a work-around.
    There is a problem still brewing in the background.
