In the upper left hand corner is the word File; when I click on it and instead of opening my files it goes back to the screen saver where I have to click Mozilla to start all over again. This is a recent problem.

It sounds as though "something" has become corrupted. This can be the result of an add-on, or it might be that reinstalling Firefox will help. Here are some diagnostic suggestions:

First, make a backup of your computer for safekeeping. To back up Firefox, see Backing up your information.

Next, try starting Firefox in Firefox Safe Mode. Be careful not to "reset" anything permanently if you didn't back up.

Does that fix it? If not, try creating a new (blank) profile: Managing profiles.

If the new profile works, then you either can work to track down the problem with your old profile, or move key settings like bookmarks from your damaged profile to the new profile, see: Recovering important data from an old profile.

Hope this helps.
