Temporary fix for firefox browser not starting

Lately Firefox every so often will not start after I start my computer. It could be a windows vista compatibility issue or maybe something to do with the browser itself. I try to end firefox.exe process so I can resart firefox, but that does not work either.

Here is what you do if you have microsoft vista:

1- Go to control panel

2- Click on programs and features

3- Right click on firefox and press un-install

4- A pop-up box will ask if you would like to close firefox to continue

5- Press yes (even though it never started in the first place)

6- After several seconds it will tell you to close firefox process (which you can't) so press cancel.

7- For some reason firefox will now work after this lazy crazy process.

Tip: Just restart your computer instead. Also wait until vista has fully restarted before trying to open firefox, less chance of it not starting.
