[SOLVED] Firefox won't open after restart..Until I updated everything

When I start my computer or reboot Firefox won't open unless I keep clicking the icon. I have it pinned to the task bar and it's set as default. when I click the icon it glows orange but then fades back to clear. sometimes as many as 15 - 20 times before it starts. I clean the temporary files every day with CCleaner. I'm not that computer smart but I haven't changed any settings and it was working perfectly until a few days ago. Once it opens I have o problems opening it and closing it UPDATE: I disabled the Facebook video call plug in updated all my Firefox stuff and it opened first try

P.S. In case it helps, here is Facebook's page on its Video Calling feature. It includes a Feedback link to report a bug:

If you want to uninstall the Facebook Video Calling Plugin (which I see listed in your "More system details" list of plugins), see: http://www.facebook.com/help/?faq=247662461917444#How-do-I-uninstall-the-video-calling-plugin-from-m...

Re: [SOLVED] Firefox won't open after restart..Until I updated everything

Thank you Alice It took me two years to get Firefox looking exactly how I wanted it. I'm not very good with computers. I thought I would have to start over. The strange thing is there was no indication of a problem. It just wouldn't open. Skype kept crashing my computer so I followed their instructions on removing everything in the registry. I remembered something about Facebook video chat being through Skype so it just made sense to disable it. I didn't even know I had it until I updated the rest of the stuff. I don't know if that was it but Firefox is working and that's what matters.
