Turned my system on this morning - tried to fire up Mozilla Firefox. System says "another instance of Firefox is already running" - far as I know there ISN'T! Tried several restarts, as advised..nothing. I COULD uninstall and re-download, but then I will lose all my bookmarks, won't I? (No, of course I haven't backed them up lately, wouldn't you know it!) Whole system is poorly at present, likely, I think to Microsoft's **** Frameworks, which are causing other problems. Anyone help me,please? Kim
rdave, that is the point - there AREN'T any firefoxes running at all, unless the name has suddenly changed.
I have now reinstalled and uninstalled several times. Sometimes Firefox reinstalls and seems to be working okay, but as soon as i log off, same thing: "another instance of Firefox is running", when, according to Task Manager, it isn't.
Also tried earlier versions of FF: same thing. Think a new computer beckons...
do you have adblock plus add on like hillwood advised if so uninstall adblock before uninstalling firefox then try.apologies if you have tried this.on my dads pc he had a problem with spywareblaster also.
