I have two computers firefox on one and I want to install on the other but my computer keeps kicking me off even if I try to set defaults to mozilla.

My computer boots me off and states that it has recovered from a critical error and keeps re booting. I set program access and default to mozilla and it boots me off. It boots me off when I try to re download,when I click on mozilla shortcut it kicks me off .I have all my setting set the same as the computer that works but it will only work with internet explorer.

Does the other system also run XP?

Can you start Firefox in its Safe Mode? To do that, hold down the Shift key when starting Firefox. A small dialog should appear. Click "Start in Safe Mode" (not Refresh).

If that doesn't work, either, maybe it's a malware infection?
