I had to reinstall firefox, now it launches twice every time I start a computer, I do not have FF on my list if I go to Startup folder nor the Autostart folder. I somehow went around it before to make it autostart, as well as thunderbird and it worked great - untill I reinstalled FF :( please help.

Hi, ya can be a pain. Have you checked the Start Button and the Start-up folder there ?

Also can check Settings --> Apps__>Default Apps and see if Firefox is set to open something there.

Note : Firefox 62.0 release tomorrow. Can do a clean reinstall if so wish : uninstall Firefox. Then Delete the Mozilla Firefox Folders in C:\Program Files , C:\Program Files(x86) & C:\ProgramData Then restart system. Then run Windows Disk Cleanup. (Note: This should be Pinned and run Weekly, If never done below expect 10's of gig's) Then run it again and click the button that says Cleanup System Files. Note: your Firefox Profile is saved. But you should make a back up before you do :

Reinstall with Current Release Firefox 62.0.0 with a Full Version Installer
