How can I close Firefox windows before launching new download when I have previously uninstalled the Firefox I had before

Posted

Firefox suddenly would not open. Finally decided to uninstall Firefox from pc (I did) and tried to reinstall. Installation nearly complete and it says that Firefox is running and to close Firefox windows before launching new installation. I had to go to Chrome which I do not like, to do any of this. The only possible Firefox running is the download site. If I close that everything, download and all go away. What can I do?
