Have this problem with Mozilla firefox. Upfraded to latest version, Now I find that if I start it up when computer is booted it will open, However if I close it it won't restart untill I reboot the computer. While closing down the computer says mozilla is open? and I have to force close/restart.
If I try and reload mozilla after finding it won't start I'm told I have to close program?
It seems to be running in the background but in foreground?
I also have a problem with notification although I click notify by email any replies. I never get notified?

That was a known issue with a previous version of FF.

Some experienced the problem, myself included. Even though the FF window was closed the process continued to run. The process could be ended using Task manager.

Depending on how many times you have updated as opposed to doing a fresh install, the problem may be hanging on from a previous version.

Uninstalling any and all FF versions found in add\remove and reinstalling the latest, 3.6.10, should clear it up.

Do`t forget to back-up your bookmarks. Here is a handy little tool that will save all bookmarks, add-ons, plug-ins and custom settings so it is easy to return your new FF install to the way you have it now.

Actually, it's probably an addon that is causing the problem. I know the previous release of Ghostery did this.

@ keyboardNinja, has the right formula it's an addon thats causing your problem !
Right click on your desktop FF icon select FF Safe Mode run it like that then see if your problem disappears, if it does then it's an addon problem !

If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !
