Internet explorer wont run on dell laptop, blinks then nothing

Assuming you mean it starts to load, then crashes and disappers. First ensure machine has been restarted. Then if that makes no difference use system restore to go back to a time when it last definitely worked. Without giving your operating system, cant give you instructions how to use system restore, you'll need to look that up. Its very simple and only takes a few minutes and will almost certainly allow IE to load.

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...


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...

When trying to connect to internet it comes up with last firefox session closed unexpectedley - restore or start new session but i have tried both sessions and they dont do anything.

Please re-install the Firefox Browser again as your Firefox has been corrupted. Download the latest version of Firefox from here. You can use other browsers also like IE(Internet Explorer), Google Chrome, Opera, etc.
