Here comes (I think) a really tough one:

My prefix is interior,
My suffix is a neu found land.
My infix is in a problem,
I really am early

Can you solve this with $0$ hints?

    $\begingroup$ @riskymysteries Not necessarily true - there are plenty of Riley riddles in the more chronological prefix-infix-suffix format. It's just a matter of personal preference. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ "self-discovery", the minus sign is in problems, no idea about early $\endgroup$

The answer is

dawn

My prefix is interior,

daw -- DAW Interior – Interior Architecture Design Firm

My suffix is a neu found land,

wn -- neu should be new, giving a clue that there should be a w

My infix is in a problem.

aw -- A sound you make when facing a problem.

I really am early

dawn -- The first appearance of light in the sky before sunrise.

    $\begingroup$ I'd recommend adding this under your other answer rather than creating a whole new one as a 'second guess:' edit $\endgroup$ Jul 28 '20 at 19:19

    $\begingroup$ Generally not for riddles where the first answer has been confirmed to be wrong, but it's your choice!. Also on another note, I highly doubt any of these clues will give a company. It's very easy to find some random company called X that does Y, so unless they are a big firm I would imagine that this is wrong, and I also recommend for future to try and avoid using them (unless it fits perfectly) $\endgroup$ Jul 28 '20 at 19:23
  • $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil I assumed that the reason the title had really tough, because there are words that are uncommon. $\endgroup$ Jul 28 '20 at 19:24

    $\begingroup$ I think its more tough as the clues are vague. It will still probably contain reasonably common words $\endgroup$ Jul 28 '20 at 19:25
