    Firefox will not open WTF?

    We briefly lost power last evening, so I simply went to bed. As of this am, after turning on my PC, Mozilla Firefox refuses to open. I'm stuck using the Internet Explorer, and after trying all sorts of suggestions from various help pages, it still will not open.

    Yup, tried rebooting, losing the program, re-downloading it, still nada.
    Anyone?

    Wow! My suggestion would have been to reinstall but I guess my only advice now would be to move from Florida. j/k

    Have a look if it is listed in the taskmanager. Sometimes, if you don't exit a program properply (and it sounds like tht was the case with you) it is still running but you just can't see it. If that's the case you can't open it again, because Windows is figuring it's already running. So if it's still listed close that task, wait until it's not listed anymore and then try it again. If that's not where the problem is .... good luck to you!

    Try shutting down the PC completely, turn off the power for 30 seconds, then boot it back up. Give the memory a chance to clear out.

    Do what Tease said first look in taskmanager under processes and if you see firefox.exe running kill it. Then try to restrart it, if you have rebooted your PC this was already done when it was rebooted.

    I think this is what you will probably need to do:
    If you uninstall firefox it still leaves your profile settings. So maybe this is what got corrupted. If you did a default install this folder should be in
    C:\Documents and Settings\your username here\Application Data\Mozilla

    delete the Mozilla folder and reinstall Firefox, but beware when you delete this you will lose all your bookmarks and addons. Then reinstall FF you should be good to go.

    Totally unbelievable...

    First off, allow me to thank you folk for your kindness in the responses. Much, much appreciated.

    I literally wound up needing to start over from scratch, entailing re-installing the entire Windows package. I'm still unclear as to what happened, yet I'll need to re-download several programs, such as Full-tilt, ect.

    Thanks again to all of you folk. I truly feel honored and somewhat humbled by the input.

    All the best.

    Yeah, but just don't start singing or playing the bass, or we'll kick you off of the website!
