When stopping down the Start button with Firefox running, screen freezes, not full stop and I must manually close. How to fix?

Win 7; 32 bit OS
Firefox 23.0

Close Firefox first of all see if it works. When you close Firefox close Firefox button option and not by using the task, closing the window manager or otherwise kill the program. Allow Firefox to stop correctly in an orderly manner.

Try this initially just close Firefox, but NOT the Windows operating system. Just try a couple of cycles of opening and closing of Firefox to make sure he's waiting. (I suggest you give it a few minutes or more between the fence and try to reopen)

(Firefox session restore files could have been stripped and need to sort)

  • ElliteBook 8460p will not be running when you press the Start button

    Hi Ant classmates.

    I am facing a problem with my 8460p ElliteBook. When I press the Start button it won't start and I need to apply some mechanical vibrarions so he reacts to the button. I guess that there is a problem with a connection inside. The thing is that he does not always fail, but it happens more often. I'm afraid to send it to HP support and resume with a message like "the problem didn't see the - up." I'm close to the date limit of warranty, but I need my laptop for 3 more weeks for professional issues. What should I do?

    Thank you

  • When I press the Start button, the OS logo flashes very quickly, then windows flashes very quickly

    Original title: Startup problem

    When I press the Start button, flashes very quickly, and the logo of the operating system and then flashes windows very quickly, then connect to flashes of password and then the screen goes dark (the monitor is turned on) and nothing more.  Before if I turned off the computer, the sequence starts returning to normal and I could log on.  Now, I only get that quick flashes and then nothing, what can I do to log on the computer?


    I had a somewhat similar to this problem and that's what I tried.

    He temporarily stabilized my problem but I have a serious type of divorce

    the solution.

    This is the procedure:

    (1) power on your PC or laptop

    (2) when he started, start pressing and releasing the F8 key till you get the windows

    Fix the Page (I don't remember the exact name, but it's a screen with many options).

    (3) among the options is "Last known good Configuration", click it. See if that fixes the problem.

    (4) If this does not work, then you need to try other options, namely:

    (A) the Startup Repair

    (B) the system restore

    (C) verification of memory

    (D) command prompt:

    (The last option would have been a godsend, but it does not work in the console command prompt.)

    I'll tell you about it...)

    If all the above methods fail, try this method (it worked for me temporarily). This method is an option only when you

    are able to access the above page and when you have administrator privileges. Then, when you're on the screen above, you will see these options:

    Safe mode

    Safe mode with network

    Choose the second option. If all goes well, you will be at the level of the office. On the desktop, right click the command prompt icon. If you don't have a shortcut cmd, no problem. Press start and type cmd or command. Right click on cmd and then click "Run as Administrator".

    * Now in the command console, type chkdsk/f/r (the space after the chkdsk command is optional). You may get a message that you can schedule chkdsk at the next restart, treatment is (Yes).

    Then, in the same type of console sfc/scannow. If all goes well, it will rectify errors of all the files on your system.

    Note: If you please ensure that your battery is 100 pc loaded before you try it. or better yet, let him charge while you do this.

    Keep me posted.

    The computer probably has a hardware problem and you should contact a real computer store
    (who makes his own internal service and no leeks and displays a Best Buy or any other)
    Department stores) or system manufacturer support. You cannot fix the hardware with the software.

  • When I try to shut down my computer with Firefox running it hangs and stops the shutdown process.

    When I try to shut down my computer with Firefox running, it does not close properly during the closing. Instead, it crashes (as described in this article) and will continue to do so until I have stop the shutdown process and close it manually, where it will still not respond. There is the substantive issue. Here is the list of the relevant data to identify more precisely:

    On the list of programs is still active during the closure, the window of Firefox starts only appearing once as it should be, but a few seconds after starting to hang, it begins to appear a second time on the bottom of the list, with the specific name of the page is a duplicate of whatever it is on the original.

    This problem does not occur in safe mode, but it is not caused by one of my addons either, as I figured out after disabling all my addons with tools > Modules rather than the safe mode and still the problem.

    He is listed as that passes several times a week, but that is simply because that's how many times I forgot to close Firefox before pressing 'closed' and leaves the room without bothering to check it works. It happens whenever I try to turn off the computer with Firefox is running well.

    See this article--> occurs not in Safe Mode

  • PowerEdge T410 won't do anything when you press the power button / stop.

    My work has recently retired this t410 server. It worked without any problems when he was arrested. I had to remove and destroy the hard drives from the system. After that, I was allowed to bring home for my own use. I installed a new sata drive and plugged into the power supply and a free sata port on the motherboard. I get nothing when I tried to boot the system. This version has the unique power. Power light only lights up when you press the test button. System fan is going at full speed, but stops when you release the power button. Also on the control panel lights 1,2 and 4 and HDD power on and turn until the test button is released. There is a single green light lit on the motherboard, while it is plugged. Apart from that, I have no response when you press the main power button. Can anyone tell how to try to get it up and running again.


    I have not received the answers more so I think that this issue is ignored. So I'll let everyone know what finally happened. I solved my problem after a lot of electrical testing. I found a diagram of the arrangement of the power dell power supply pins and I made myself the best possible meter test. After several rounds of tests, I found several pins that did not have the right voltage. I bought a new power supply. I installed and replace everything. I plugged into the system and it auto fed on itself. I loaded from an OS and it works perfectly.
