I reinstalled Mozilla Fox and I checked the box Launch Mozilla Fox. The window won't open. Therefore, I manually opened Mozilla Fox and no luck D:


Are you getting any kind of error message at all or is it just not opening?


not opening

Now rshaffer61 is much more knowledgeable then me so be sure to take his advice over mine however I noticed a reference in one dump to Ready Boost and in another to memory management error. In my windows 7 machine ready boost allowed me to attach a USB flash drive for extra memory, is that something you have been doing? If yes then I'm wondering if the fault could be there.
Note: to rshffer61 if I'm more of a hinderence then a help just tell me, I wont be offended.

Nope even the best miss things once in awhile. :D
If you are correct then disconnect the flash drive and reboot the system. Does the problem still happen then?

Did you disconnect it and any other USB besides a kb and mouse, then reboot to see if the issue still happens.

I don't understand this step. How do I even disconnect my flash drive? is there like a little icon saying that its safe to remove this hardware?

There should be or you can open Windows Explorer...Right click on the flash drive and you should be given the option to safely remove from there.

Nope I have had topics that have been 10 times this amount of posts before we finally got to the root of the issue.

You have the wrong program. Open Windows Explorer not IE
On the left side scroll down till you see your Flash Drive and then Right Click on the drive.
In the little window there should be the option to Safely Remove there and just click on that.
If that doesn't show then down on the bottom right of your screen next to the clock there should be a icon that when you put your mouse on it will say Safely Remove this device. Click on that and follow the prompts.

Try Windows Explorer which is part of your operating system as opposed to Internet Explorer.
