Each says Start (0).

I have no idea 1) how they landed 2) what they're for; and 3) how to get rid of them.

I've tried deleting the firefox profile folders and launching the application. Still get the same error message. I tried deleting all firefox files, restarted and reinstalled and still get the same error message. I had Sophos Home installed and removed that and it still did not fix the problem. Also when i try to launch the profile manager via terminal it still just gives me the profile error message. This is extremely annoying.

this morning, I get the above error message when attempting to open ff. I was able to open ff from the start menu(windows 7 enterprise), but all of my bookmarks have disappeared. I had the system administrator attempt to restore my computer, with no results, then reinstalling ff. upon reinstall, I was able to open ff, but bookmarks were still missing. then, a ff update "esr" was run, and now I get the error msg above trying to open ff from anywhere. I cannot open ff at all to restore defaults or run in safe mode to fix.

This should be an easy fix because all other browsers and Firefox used to do this. When Firefox is restarted the pages do not reload they just display history. I have to hit the reload current page button to get the new data. This has been driving me crazy for a few weeks. I thought I had if fixed a couple of times but only a couple of pages would reload and now it is all history again.

Up to before v.43, our emergency alert program would open Firefox at http://cad.chp.ca.gov. Now Firefox opens to https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/43.0.1/firstrun/learnmore/, and disappears within a few seconds. Accepting "Try the new private browsing" does not solve the problem.

What has changed so we can modify our code?

Thank you for help.

This just started yesterday. I have flash player plugin version 20.0.0.306 installed. When I set it to "Never Activate" in Tool\addons my homepage loads fine when I open Firefox. When i have it set to "Ask to activate" or "Always activate" my homepage will not load and i get a blank New Page. I reloaded firefox from scratch and reinstalled the flash player from the adobe update website. Kinda weird but I am wondering if this has been addressed or if anyone else it seeing this. i am running 64 bit version of FF on Windows 7 Pro. FF version is 44.0. Thank you !

Firefox will not load. I installed Kaspersky Internet Security and everything was working fine until it wasn't. I then uninstalled Kaspersky, but Firefox would still not load.

Since I love Firefox I restored my computer to a previous state and that fixed everything, so then I installed a different Kaspersky product and everything was perfect. Now the problem is back again.

I don't know if the problem is on Kaspersky side or Firefox, but I would prefer not to restore again and I have no more troubleshooting ideas.

Firefox starts in Windows safe mode. When I double click on the Firefox icon the mouse indicates FF is loading, but then it doesn't start. Chrome starts fine. Contacted Kaspersky, but their first troubleshooting tip did not work. Under Event viewer I can see crash details for Firefox, but I can't interpret them and I don't know if they are related to FF not loading.

I'm okay with unintelligible Firefox and then reinstalling, but I do not want to lose my bookmarks, themes, add-ons, etc.

Any ideas would be appreciated!

After hours of trying various methods and enlisting the aid of my son unsuccessfully, I cannot access Firefox from my start menu. Nothing happens at all though it appears to still exist. At the same time, my Edge browser works perfectly. I tried a number of trouble-shooting suggestions without effect and even if trying to upload an "updated version" a screen said Firefox was open and needed to be closed before I could proceed. However, I could see nothing. I am no computer expert by any means but I use Firefox for a specific purpose which is now unavailable and would greatly appreciate any assistance. Thank you.

I tried starting the Firefox browser multiple times by clicking both the shortcut icon and the file. After nothing happened, i opened the task manager and stopped the browser's process(What even causes this to happen?), but when i tried to start the browser again, it just did the same thing: it started a process on the task manager, but it didn't start. No matter how many times i stopped the process, the same thing would happen. I tried creating a new profile, and it worked, but i wanted to test it by closing it and opening it again, and it didn't work. Then i tried creating a third profile, but for some reason it didn't work that time, and even if it did, it'd be pretty annoying to have to create a new profile everytime i wanted to use the internet. I use Windows 10, if it makes any difference. Sorry for the long text and bad english.

Hi, I have a Mac 10.11.6 and for whatever reason I cannot get Firefox to open. I received a message at the bottom of my browser during the last use saying something to the effect of click restore/restart to improve speed. I did this and now Firefox will not open. I get a Mozilla crash reporter screen even when I try launching it in safe mode. I tried the refresh option (by holding shift + option on startup) and still get the crash report screen. I reinstalled it multiple times, tried deleting it and doing a clean install, deleted my profile and created a new one, and even deleted my anti virus program. Nothing seems to be working and I am very eager to get my preferred browser working again.

Thanks very much for your insight!
