BIOS warning at start up may be a CMOS 'coin' battery on the motherboard needs replacing.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Phoenix is the BIOS (Basic Input/Output System). It's like a mini operating system that configures the motherboard to interact with the rest of the system hardware. If it's popping up on startup, there's probably been some sort of hardware failure. Is it asking to press a key?

Or maybe you refer to the original version of the browser (from the early 2000's) that became Mozilla Firefox?

Though it's unlikely you'd see it on startup. As riider mentions, something is likely going on with your machine hardware-wise.

What does the message say? That will give you a clue as to why your BIOS screen is coming up during POST.

A screen with the name of the BIOS manufacturer, the manufacturer's
logo, and the BIOS version number was always the first thing to come
up on all of my IBM-type computers before the HP laptop I'm using now,
which is running Windows 10. On this one the only thing that comes up
before the HP logo is a very short line of text in the bottom-left corner of
the screen that goes away before I can read it (maybe 1/8 second), but
I presume it says to press the escape key for startup functions.

So is it now standard to not show a BIOS screen? That must be set by
the computer manufacturer, or in the BIOS. It isn't set in Windows.

Now issue resolved. I opened BIOS setup and reset to defaults then legacy support in boot then restarted . Now issue resolved.

BIOS defaults are almost never the best performance settings.
