Each time I reboot my computer, Firefox 18 will be working in the background after I double click the icon. It does not show up in the task manager. If I double click the icon several times some minutes later, it will finally open up all the windows. The first window will say that an update was unsuccessfully loaded, and it will try again. When that fails, then I close that window and I am good until I reboot again.
I have already tried resetting to default. I also completely uninstalled it with all my personal settings and then reinstalled it. The trouble remains.

Hey i have this problem on my laptop. Its a very annoying but usually these solution fixes it http://mzl.la/Mqh7m3.
Thanks, That is not the first time I had to do that. I had just forgotten the process. I need to write these things down. Every time there is an update I have do go through these procedures.
Nope the trouble is back again.

What version of windows are you using? Also Check if you have full permission and check this:
Software that can cause updates to fail Other installed applications can disrupt the update process and cause the Software Update Failed error. See this forum topic for other causes and solutions.
Logitech QuickCam Spybot S&D TeaTimer
Other running programs that may interfere with the update process include:
Virus scanners, including Comodo Antivirus NOD32 AntiVirus and AVG AntiVirus Anti-spyware programs, including SpySweeper and Spyware Blaster Aqua Dock Gadwin Printscreen Azureus Vuze
I am running XP and I do have Norton Antivirus running. I have found a temporary fix for now. I just selected the "do not check for updates" box. Even checking the "ask me before updates" does it.
I will wait for FF19 to go mainstream and then manually load it and give it a shot then. I have spent too much of my life fixing a "new and better" version. :)
