I've XP SP3 on my Dell desktop. I use FF 3.5.7 It's odd activity is that on first launch in the morning, it loads. I close it for other business: on returning to that d/top icon, clicking on it produces nothing. It won't boot. Looking in Task Mgr it is there, active. By the same measure, if I click on an html file with FF as the opener, it just goes grey but will not open.

It is set as my default browser. Any ideas please?

It looks like previous session didn't terminate correctly.
Try to kill the process in Task Manager and see if FF will open now.

As for the reason....usually some add-on(s). Toolbars are notorious for causing those issues.
To test it...
Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode). Same thing?
