For some reason lately, Firefox(latest version) has been hanging up. After exiting the program, I attempt to reopen it. I get an error message that states that FF is already running. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance.

I sometimes got this message after and found out that I was trying to start it again too fast. Try and open "My Computer" or something first and give Firefox time to clear itself.

Firefox is known to hang for a bit after closing. Give it time to completely close down. Check task manager for firefox.exe, and when it is gone, try to reopen firefox.
