Firefox will only open in the background of my computer no matter how many times I try to open it. I have reinstalled Firefox and deleted and reinstalled its files many times. When I try to open Firefox, my mouse shows that it loads and then it only opens in the background. I have tried safe mode and editing my profiles too.
