Hi,

From two to three weeks ago, every time I open windows, my firefox browser reboots twice. It does not give any error message and when it reboots it goes back to home page. I removed all extensions, then I updated the browser and the Graphic Card, in vain!

Any help please

Update: it happened again, even though I did not restart my PC. I just put it in sleep mode. About 10 or 20 mints after putting it On again, it restarts by itself

Hi again,

I finally find the problem. Everyday I desactivate 1 program from starting automatically with Windows, till I desactivate FeedDemon. Bingo, FeedDemon is the source of the problem and Firefox did not restart byitself from 3 days now.

It is possible that some software tries to open a page in the default browser.

Does this still happen if you set another browser as the default browser ?

As one of the users in Microsoft forum suggested, I have just uninstall firefox, restart my PC then I downloaded it and installed it again. So simple, I don't know why I forget to do that in the first place.
