Firefox doesn't always open when I click the icon

I am running Windows 7, and was running Firefox 6. I just upgraded to 8. Regardless of the version of Firefox, however, there are times when I click the Firefox icon to start it (or try to open from a program list), yet a window doesn't open.

Judging by the task manager, it's actually running - there is just no visible window. Sometimes I can get it to start by "opening" it and ending the process in the task manager a few times, but sometimes I have to completely restart my computer to get Firefox to actually open.
