Thank you Naat.

Compared to before now the applications open little bit faster and there is a issue in opening firefox everytime when i open it i have to select it 4 to five times after that it opens 5 windows continuously but if i press one time it did not open a single window..

Others are fine.. If it is normal then leave it and close the thread..

Thank you for your timing to help me...

I'm sorry for the delay, life got me very busy.


Nothing veisble in Firefox. What I can suggest is a reset that may help.



Firefox-icon.png Reset Firefox to defaults

Please open Mozilla Firefox.
  • In the address bar at the top please type in about:support.
  • You will be taken to the Troubleshooting information menu.
  • Find there Reset Firefox button and press it just once.
  • In the shown window please press Reset Firefox button once more.
  • FireFox will close and reset.
Bare in mind that all your browsing history, passwords, cookies will be saved. This procedure will only remove all extensions, themes, plugins etc. and restore FF engine to a state similar after a fresh installation.


To clean my junkyard:

Please download DelFix by Xplode and save it to your desktop.
  • Right-click on 51a5ce45263de-delfix.png icon and select RunAsAdmin.jpg Run as Administrator to start the tool.
  • Ensure that Remove disinfection tools, Purge system restore and Reset system settings are checked.
  • Push Run.
  • When finished, it will display a notepad report.
Include it for my review.
Please also manually reboot your machine after posting your logfile.
