Nevertheless, Firefox will not open on my computer account, but on others.

I had installed the new firefox 28, after which everything seemed good. But when later I turned on my computer, firefox does not open despite the number of times I clicked on it. I tried 'security mode' as well. Or open anything and does not appear in the Task Manager. However, the options of firefox opens. But there is nothing useful there.
Firefox works on other computer accounts, just not mine.
I rebooted the computer several times and I tried to uninstall and install. Nothing.
And nothing came on an AVG scan.
Help would be appreciated, thanks.

Do a clean reinstall and delete the program folder before Firefox to (re) install a new copy of the current version of Firefox.

Download a new copy of Firefox and save the file to the desktop.

If possible to uninstall your current version of Firefox to clean the Windows registry and settings in the security software.

  • Do NOT remove the "personal data" when you uninstall your current version of Firefox, because this will remove all profile folders and you lose personal data such as bookmarks and passwords including data profiles created by other versions of Firefox.

Delete the program folder Firefox before installing newly downloaded copy of the Firefox installer.

  • (32-bit Windows) "C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\"
  • (Windows 64 bit) "C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla.

Your bookmarks and other personal data are stored in the Firefox profile folder and will not be affected by a uninstall and (re) install, but make sure that 'delete personal data' is NOT selected when you uninstall Firefox.

If you keep problems also create a new profile.

    Some Firefox problems can be solved by performing a clean reinstall. This means that you remove Firefox program files, and then reinstall Firefox. Please follow these steps:

    Note: You can print these steps or consult them in another browser.

    1. Download the latest version of Firefox from http://www.mozilla.org office and save the installer to your computer.
    2. Once the download is complete, close all Firefox Windows (click on quit in the file menu or Firefox).
    3. Remove the Firefox installation folder, which is located in one of these locations, by default:
      • Windows:

        • C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
        • C:\Program Files (x 86) \Mozilla Firefox
      • Mac: Delete Firefox in the Applications folder.
      • Linux: If you have installed Firefox with the distribution-based package manager, you must use the same way to uninstall: see Install Firefox on Linux. If you have downloaded and installed the binary package from the Firefox download page, simply remove the folder firefox in your home directory.
    4. Now, go ahead and reinstall Firefox:
      1. Double-click on the downloaded Setup file and go through the steps in the installation wizard.
      2. Once the wizard is completed, click to open Firefox directly after clicking the Finish button.

    It undertakes to repair your version 3 and you will be operational with your old favorites, etc.

    I got calls from a dozen people with this problem, and it's the solution.

  • Firefox does not open using a different account on the same computer

    Firefox does not continue opening to a user account. I have four users using computer and firefox works fine with all 3. It just indicates that the loading is stopped.

    As it is only a problem for a user, it is likely to be a problem with the profile for that user folder. The profile folder is where user data is stored.

    Try to create a new profile for that user, for details on how to do it see http://kb.mozillazine.org/Creating_a_new_Firefox_profile_on_Windows

    If the new profile works, you can selectively copy user data such as bookmarks and passwords to the new profile. For more details of the files to copy, see https://support.mozilla.com/kb/Recovering+important+data+from+an+old+profile

  • Since this morning, shortcut desktop Firefox will not open unless Firefox was already open...

    Aaaaahhhhh - yesterday, everything was fine. Nothing seemed to be a problem. This morning I'm on my laptop to read my emails as usual, a shortcut icon on the desktop for Yahoo, and it does not open. Then I tried several other shortcuts office linking to Firefox and none of them is open. The only shortcut that works is the Firefox that brings me to my home page. Once it is open, then my shortcuts all work. What? I must say that I have others linking to Google Chrome desktop shortcuts, and they all work very well. What is the problem with Firefox that I now already have it open to allow my shortcuts to open? It is so annoying not being able to just to open things directly from the desktop. I tried to delete all shortcuts and reapply them. It does not help. Anyone got any ideas? Thank you

    Just checked the other shortcuts and they have now all seems to be a new behavior - I guess I had a fleeting event on my hands!

  • 14 Firefox will not open!

    I tried to update, on 14 FF, twice, and whenever I do, FF does not open. I'm under return 13 without any problem, but as soon as I upgrade to 14, I need to uninstall FF and reinstall 13 and not up to date. But I need to update, most of my modules are not compatible with 13, they say, and I won't be vulnerable to security issues.

    It cannot be my profile because it works very well with 13. I turned off my security systems and it will not always be open.

    Any help?

  • registered shortcuts on the desktop does not open on a user account, but will be on the other account

    If you right click and save the web page at the top of the office it will open and operate very well on a user account, but not on the other account they are all two administor account

    What is the solution

    Hello! :) I think that if you try to go to the Web page that you saved to the original account and save this page on the desktop on that account, it should work. I think they are two separate, accounts and so maybe that's why we couldn't see the shortcut on the other account. I really hope this helps. :)

  • Firefox will not save my Yahoo mail passwords, but will be exploring.

    Firefox allows to save passwords of yahoo Mail, but lately, doesn't seem to work. I have 2 email accounts and password with Yahoo. I read through and clicked on all the things on which allows passwords to be saved, but nothing works. I don't have this problem with Solution Explorer. If it's just something that Yahoo has been close Firefox then so let it be, but if there is something that can be done I would appreciate the help.

    I read through the other Q & A on this point, it looks like a big problem everywhere, but many solutions say on bookmarks, etc I do not understand what to do. Many say "resolved", but I don't see any solution.

    remmed on my first temporary comment

    Hello, Web sites can specify whether browsers should be able to save the name of user and password (through the AutoComplete = "off" attribute in the login form in the HTML source)-this is also the case with yahoo.

    You can either install an addon or use a bookmarklet to work around this restriction.
