Something is blocking my Firefox from launching at irregular intervals. I tried a lot of things and finally got it working. But I don't think it will last. Any tips on what to do next.

Save your profile/s and bookmarks and reinstall would be my suggestion. If you only have issues with Ff. If all browsers have this quirk you may consider malware scans.

I'm sure others may have suggestions as well.

It's other browsers as well, so it's a malware problem. Best way to track down this trojan?

Following the directions here: How do I get help? Who is helping me? is your best bet at this point.
