You can kill it by using task manager brought up by CTL+ALT+DEL. You can reinstall FireFox to fix some issues with its files, settings and updates.

Firefox is crashing


Firefox crashes can be caused by incompatible extensions or themes, issues with hardware acceleration and the drivers on your system, problems with your Firefox settings and other issues. If Mozilla Firefox is crashing every time you reopen it, you can troubleshoot Firefox with its safe mode, update the software on your system or create a new Firefox profile.

Safe Mode b> Mozilla Firefox includes a safe mode startup option. Firefox doesn't use extensions, themes, hardware acceleration or your custom settings when you start in safe mode. You can start Firefox in safe mode by pressing and holding the "Shift" key while clicking the "Firefox" shortcut. Click "Continue in Safe Mode" when the dialogue box appears. If Firefox doesn't crash when you start in safe mode, the problem is with your Firefox configuration. b> Reset Firefox b> If Firefox starts without crashing in safe mode, you can make some of the safe mode changes permanent. Close Firefox and restart it in safe mode again. Use the dialogue box that appears to select one of the options such as "Disable All Add-ons" or "Reset All User Preferences to Firefox Defaults" and click "Make Changes and Restart" to restart Firefox in normal mode with the changes. After restarting, you can re-enable extensions and themes one by one and install updated extensions that may fix the problem. Update b> If Firefox crashes safe mode, updating Firefox and other software on the system may fix the problem. You can download and install a new version of Firefox from Mozilla.com if it won't start. You should also update Windows from Windows Update, update any browser plug-ins such as Adobe Flash and update for your antivirus, firewall and other security programs. The crash may be fixed with newer versions of the software. b> Profiles b> Firefox stores your settings in a profile directory. It normally creates only one profile directory, but you can create an additional profile and start Firefox with that profile instead of using safe mode. Close Firefox if it's open, click "Start," type "Firefox.exe -ProfileManager" into the search box in the Start menu and press "Enter" to access the profile manager window. Click "Create Profile" to create a new profile, provide a name for the new profile and click "Start Firefox." Firefox opens with a fresh profile; you can start your old profile from the profile manager window.

When i launch browser a tab appears with a firefox icon saying do you want to restore last session or start new session, Click on either one of these and then it says it cant connect because firefox is...


hi,

Its because the browser that you are you using is not your default browser, I believe that your default browser is Firefox, You can try to restart the computer then open up the other browser that you have which is not Firefox, there will be a message there if you want to make that as your default browser, just click on yes, in that way, it will stopped Firefox to appear everytime you open up a tab.

Note: If nothing happens and still the same, you can uninstall firefox by going to the Control Panel then click on Uninstall a Program ( Windows Vista/ Windows 7 ) Add and Remove Programs ( windows XP ) then look for Mozilla Firefox and then uninstall it.


hope this will help... your response is very much appreciated...

I have been told that by browser needs to be upgraded. what do i do now.


1) Open Firefox
2) Click on Help
3) Click on Check for Updates
4) In the dialogue box, click 'Get the new version'
5) Wait patiently for about a minute
6) All done! Firefox will need to restart before the update can take effect, so don't upgrade while you're in the middle of something else on the internet (like trying to snipe an Ebay auction!).

Hope that helps. Good luck!

There have been known issues with your problem with Firefox, but first, try running the Disk Cleanup found in System Tools
You can access System Tools by clicking "Start", "Programs" then "System Tools"
After running and finishing Disk Cleanup, if you have any anti-virus that has expired, uninstall then restart.
IF YOU'RE USING OUTLOOK EXPRESS:
