Ever since I uninstalled some stuff from my computer thinking it would help speed up my computer my Firefox browser doesnt pop up but it says firefox isrunning.
Certain Firefox problems can be solved by performing a Clean reinstall. This means you remove Firefox program files and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:
Note: You might want to print these steps or view them in another browser.

Does it show a message like, "Firefox is running, but it isn't responding. You have to close the existing Firefox process or restart your system"? Right click the taskbar and select Start task manager. In the task manager window click on the processes tab. It will show a list of processes, and select Firefox.exe *32 or Firefox.exe. Then click the End process button, and click OK in the dialog. Finally restart Firefox, and it should be fixed.
When I did go to task manager I did click on the Firefox and ended the process. And still nothing. But under user name it says owner. Does that affect anything
Could you try starting Firefox in its Safe Mode.
Hold down the Shift key when starting Firefox. Then, a small dialog should appear.
Note: if you get the error that Firefox is already running, you'll have to "kill" it in the Task Manager again.
In the dialog, click "Start in Safe Mode" (not Reset)
Will Firefox start in Safe Mode?
Did you remove the Firefox profile folder?
You can use the Profile Manager to create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems or is missing.
See "Creating a profile":
If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over the problem.
