“If a hacker knows every number generated by the windows random number generator, will HTTPS be compromised?”

Write a research paper based on the question below:
“If a hacker knows every number generated by the windows random number generator, will HTTPS be compromised?”
So for this research, I have to answer this question with evidence from resources. Some background about the topic is first, during the TLS handshake, the browser uses random numbers to generate cryptographic keys to encrypt the HTTPS session. Furthermore, we want to find the random number generator function that is being called in the browser code and see if we can retrieve that number and use it to decrypt the HTTPS traffic. These random numbers are derived from the operating system itself, so there must be a function in the browser code that calls the Windows random number generator function.
Additional requirement
I need a bi weekly update on the status of the writing as this is a requirement from the lecturer.
