I click on both the icon in the dock and in the apps folder. When I click on the icon in the dock it bounces a couple of times and then nothing, it doesn't open and no white dot appears like they do on open apps in the dock. I am running the latest Mac OS. After having this happen I updated my software and downloaded at new version of Firefox off the web but the same thing happens. I have not downloaded anything in the last week and have been using firefox up until today.

So, ...I have this problem, too, since today. Any solutions yet? Thanks, Regina

okay I threw away my profile for firefox in library/application support/firefox and now it opens, a corrupt file apparently. Sorry for my tardy reply, sounds like you may have solved it, but I figured this might help someone else.
