Fire fox wont' come up at all today. I'm having to use a different search engine.

Posted

I've been trying to bring up Firefox off and on for over an hour now, and it won't come up. I was forced to use a different search engine in fact just to post this problem. I recently upgraded to Windows 10, but that has been about 2 weeks or so ago. I even tried installing and reinstalling the program and allowed an upgrade just now. Still no luck. I'm not a "computer person" so I don't know any computer jargon. Can any one help me, or is it a FF problem?
