Firefox no longer launches in Windows 10. Double click on Firefox icon and nothing happens, no error messages appear. I have tried to research this problem in support articles but none of the suggestions seem to fix my problem. So I'm reaching out to the community for help.

Chosen solution

Some problems occur when your Internet security program was set to trust the previous version of Firefox, but no longer recognizes your updated version as trusted. Now how to fix the problem: To allow Firefox to connect to the Internet again;

  • Make sure your Internet security software is up-to-date (i.e. you are running the latest version).
  • Remove Firefox from your program's list of trusted or recognized programs. For detailed instructions, see

Configure firewalls so that Firefox can access the Internet. {web link}
