Hi, I have a 5 year old Medion XP laptop. Every time i start it i click on Firefox and it asks me if i want to contnue my last browsing session, which i do. Today, when i click on Firefox nothing happens? No egg timer or anything.

Please can i ask has anyone any idea of what i can do to fix this?

As woodchip says: on your shortcut in Properties and that will tell you where the shortcut points to, 'find target' to open folder where Mozilla Firefox is installed.

In program files were you looking for Firefox or Mozilla Firefox?

When reinstalling FF I've always found that my history and bookmarks from the last version are reloaded.

Hi and thank you (as usual), OK, well being as I am a fool, I was looking for 'Firefox' but then I realised that I should have been looking for 'Mozilla Firefox'! Doh! Anyway, I found it and then tried to open it (before the postings on here) and it wouldn't open so i downloaded and installed a new version and although my preferedoption of 'restore last session' was not there, my history was, which is good enough for me. YES!! I'm really happy at that.

Thank you all (If I/you could have a pound for every time I've said that on here...)
