Firefox v 3.6.3 running Win 7 Home premium. About every 6th or 7th time I go to open Firefox from my desktop I receive the same msg as the original poster receives. I must restart to clear up the problem. When I select restart it states a forced shutdown is required and asks if I want to proceed. I click yes, the computer restarts and problem is fixed until the next occurrence.

My thanks for any assistance that may be available.

If you require a screenshot let me know, please include instructions on how to do this though.

Update on my problem. I run AVG for a virus program so have no issues with it. Going to Task Manager shows no programs open until I go to the Processes Folder. It shows Firefox.exe as running so I selected "end process" and was then able to open it. FYI, closing Firefox with File, Exit commands makes no difference, the problem will persist. This doesn't appear to be a hang up because Firefox looks to be closed but won't re-open so there is no freezing or lock up so to speak.

Thanks for your response though cor-el
