Citra not starting up, white screen

Issue:
After updating both versions of Citra that I have (Nightly and Canary) via the maintenance tool, it refuses to start up. It’s simply a white screen, with Windows eventually giving me “citra-qt.exe is not responding”.

I can’t boot up a game.

Ok I had a friend help me fix it, updating both the Nvidia graphics drivers AND AMD cpu drivers fixed the problem.

Hello friend, I have the same problem, the citra doesn’t open and it says it doesn’t respond, how did you fix it?

Like I said, just updating both my graphics drivers and cpu drivers did the job. After that it booted up fine.

Updating drivers has fixed the issue. Thank you.
I still believe this is something the Citra developers should look into, but that is not a discussion for this place.
