You most likely have one of the CTRL+letter shortcuts set to open Firefox. To fix this:

  1. Right click on the Firefox icon where the shortcut is set. (Most likely on the Desktop or in the Start Menu)
  2. Choose Properties
  3. Click in the shortcut key blank and press backspace. This will erase the shortcut
  4. Click OK
  5. Repeat these steps for any more shortcuts that you accidentally set.
