Whenever I go to open firefox from my task bar, sometimes it will open the way it should. Other times when I try to open it, it opens minimized. I cannot figure it out. And it get irritating when it does this cause I sit here waiting for it to show, and it's minimized. I think you get the idea.

Chosen solution

You may have a corrupt xulstore.json file.

Type about:support in the address bar and press enter.

Under the page logo on the left side, you will see Application Basics. Under this find Profile Folder. To its right press the button Show Folder. This will open your file browser to the current Firefox profile. Now Close Firefox.

Locate the xulstore.json file. Then rename or delete it. Restart Firefox.
