If you are running Windows XP, Hit Ctrl + Alt + Del to bring up Windows Task Manager, click on the Processes tab, if you scroll through the processes you will see firefox.exe Select the firefox.exe process and click the End Process button.

Cant open internet options


How to Open Internet Options
Each browser has a way to customize it, and you do it using Internet Options. With Internet Options, you can specify your privacy settings, security and your home page with a few clicks of your mouse. Knowing how to open Internet options is essential to preventing hackers from accessing your computer or keeping people from viewing your Internet history. Opening the window in Firefox, Internet Explorer, or with your computer's control panel is not a difficult task.
Instructions
Firefox
1 Launch the Firefox browser.
2 Go to the toolbar at the top of the browser and select "Tools."
3 Move the mouse pointer down the tool menu until you get to "Options." Click on that word. Your Firefox Internet Options will immediately open.

Internet Explorer
1 Launch the Internet Explorer browser.
2 Click on the "Tools" menu located on the tool bar, at the top of the browser.
3 Move the mouse cursor down that menu until you get to "Internet Options." Left click on those words. Your Internet Options window will immediately open.

Computer Control Panel
1 Go to the Start Menu.
2 Click on the "Control Panel."
3 Click "Network Internet Options." Then, Click "Internet Options." You will be able to change Internet Explorer options, but not those of other browsers such as Firefox or Google Chrome

On by Aspire One with Linpus Linux Lite v1.0.15.E, I am connected to my network but cannot connect to the browser. I get a message: "Firefox is already running, but is not responding; To open a new...


This could happen after your netbook crashed or turned off while Firefox was still running. When Firefox is running, it puts a file called "parent.lock" in your Firefox profile directory. If you delete that file, Firefox should start properly again.

I'm not sure exacly where the profile directory is on your system (I currently don't use Linpus Lite anymore), but it should be somewhere in your home directory in .firefox or .mozilla. Maybe this page could help you find it.

My Acer Aspire One netbook won't open any browsers (firefox or explorer). I've tried multiple ways of opening a browser and nothing happens... no error message or anything. I'm running Linux.


have you downloaded any thing recent? this may be the cause ......... all I can suggest is restore the systems far back as the beginning of December last year.......(when everything was probably running smooth)


good luck

You need to download Adobe Flash player plugins form http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
and install them on your computer, it might prompt you to close your web browser like internet explorer or Mozilla Firefox. Close it and allow installation to complete.
After installation complete open your web browser and now try playing any video. It should work perfectly.

Can not login into yahoo.com computer all the time


I am sorry with your question, Did you mean you can't log in to you account or you can't open the www.mail.yahoo.com page?
If you can't open the yahoo site, then there are several reasons, might be your internet browser settings have blocked the yahoo site or like that.. it's also possible that you can't access the page coz of cache and cookies,in that case, you need to run a cleaning using a cleaner or with the built-in cleaner.
Well, first of all, please try opening the page on another web browser like firefox or googlechrome... you can download them here..;
Click here to download Mozilla Firefox
Click here to download Google Chrome
Do let me know after you try these.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system.but I have no Firefox window open what should i do?


HIt cntrl alt delete to open task manager (or right click on the taskbar) and look at the processes running. You will find Firefox is running although you dont currently have the browser window open. Click on Firefox in the task manager and close it out. Then close the task manager and you'll be able to open Firefox again. This is a common problem with Firefox. It happens in IE as well but for some reason, you can still open IE.
Hope this settles your problem. All the best!
