When I click on the foxfire icon, the sound of the disk is heard. This soon stops. The hourglass appears for a short time and then disappears. There are no other signs that the program is running as a process other than using Windows TaskManager and looking in the process list. When this happen, I delete foxfire as a process and then restart it as I normally do. This usually works in getting it started.

I had several tabs open in Firefox. They were closed and not saved by another person who was using my computer, who inadvertently closed the program. Is there any way to retrieve all the tabs I had open? (Some of them had been open for days, or even weeks, rather than recently opened.)
