Hi, I'm having a problem with Mozilla Firefox. When I try to load the browser I get an error message saying "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system." I do not see any processes that say Firefox and I have tried uninstalling and re-downloading but it didn't work. Also, my computer is detecting my wireless network with a strong signal strength but I receive a "Failed to open page" message when I try to open Internet Explorer. I thought these might be malware issues but Rorshach112 said he thought they were tech related and sent me over here. Any help will be gladly appreciated. Thanks.

Try to solve the problem in one browser first, otherwise the situation will become more confusing. Also, try to enter into a very common internet sites like google or msn. Don't try any other sites at the moment.

1: Uninstall Firefox and reboot.

2: Disable your firewall temporarily (please report what firewall you are using). Any improvement? If not:

3: Open Internet Explorer > tools > internet options. Open the following tabs and set to default: Security (each of the four options), Privacy, Advanced.

4: If still no good Go to this site and run reset tcp/ip .

Thanks for the response. Resetting my IP fixed the wireless problem. I uninstalled Firefox and redownloaded and installed it, but I still receive the error message.
