Possibly you have security software interfering with this.

For tips and troubleshooting information please read the article


Take care do not use any options from Windows or Firefox that say delete personal information, that will destroy bookmarks and passwords. It may be asensible precation to back up your profile and bookmarks before proceeding any further.

Let's try this:

Open www.getfirefox.com in Internet Explorer. click the green "Download Now" button. Instead of clicking "Run", click "save". save it to an easy to find place on your computer (I suggest Desktop). After the download, restart your computer, then double-click the file you just downloaded. Run through the whole install process. You should be all good to go after that!

Since you're upgrading Firefox, here are a few other things you can do to make sure you get the best experience possible:

Run all Windows Updates, install all needed service packs, etc.

Update your graphics driver (Firefox uses your graphics card for some rendering, and an out of date graphics card driver can cause problems. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/how-do-i-upgrade-my-graphics-drivers.

Update all your plugins (Flash, Java, etc.): http://www.mozilla.org/plugincheck/.

Download and Install MalwareBytes Anti-Malware, run a full Scan. http://www.malwarebytes.org/. This helps check that there are no viruses on your computer causing issues. You can uninstall this program after you clean off any infections.
