When I start Firefox on my Vista machine, the busy icon displays for a few seconds, then goes away, but the firefox window never appears. The task manager indicates that it is running, but there is no firefox window. Restarting sometimes works.

A possible cause is security software (firewall) that blocks or restricts Firefox or the plugin-container process without informing you, possibly after detecting changes (update) to the Firefox program.

Remove all rules for Firefox from the permissions list in the firewall and let your firewall ask again for permission to get full unrestricted access to internet for Firefox and the plugin-container process.

Thanks for the quick reply. I've submitted a help ticket to our IT department with your suggestion. I'll let you know if that worked.
