I can only access firefox by running as administrator.
Ever since upgrading to Windows 10 from 7, I have been unable to just run FF. If I try all I get is the error message "Firefox is already running but is not responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window. "
Instead, I must now right click and select run as administrator in order to open FF.
I have tried different fixes as suggested here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1075120 and here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/firefox-already-running-not-responding However the problem still persists.
Hooray, fixed!!!! Finally able to find the profile in the 'appdata' and unchecked the 'readonly' box.Diese Antwort im Kontext lesen 👍 0

Use one of these to close Firefox if you are currently doing that by clicking the close X on the Firefox title bar.
- "3-bar" menu button > Exit (Power button)
- Windows: File > Exit
- Mac: Firefox > Quit Firefox
- Linux: File > Quit
Make sure that you have read/write permissions for all the files in the profile folder.
Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problem.
See "Creating a profile":
If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.

I keep trying to get this resolved but the problem continues.
I am running Windows 10 - I have uninstalled FF and re-installed - gone through the steps that cor-el suggested but have not found the 'profile folder' - I have even used MozBackup and attempted to restore the profile but to no avail.
I will continue to get this figured out, until then any more suggestions are welcomed.
