Chrome Registration??????

Morning Chaps,

At wits end to know what to do next. I use Firefox as my browser of choice and have done for probably 10 years. For a few days now, when I open Firefox I get a damned annoying small window headed:

Chrome Registration

underneath that:

Firefox could not install this item because of a failure in Chrome Registration. Please contact the author about this problem. >>>

I've been to the Firefox help pages and the user group - also Googled 'Chrome Registrations probs' but nothing seems to stop this. This small window appears twice (click OK) then FF opens then ANOTHER 2 small windows appear!!!

Any ideas what to do next? I've only got back to 1st July sys restore points. It's been happening about 8 days now.

I'd uninstall FF then reinstall.

Just about to unin-reinstall when I noticed 2 other replies, onthelimit.

Thanks Graphicool1, and the link you've given Woolwell, that's the one I tried first. It DOESN'T work either!! I've tried disabling ALL the add-ons and extensions and it didn't stop it.

Just unin-reinstalled FF and *** so far *** no more very annoying failed Chrome registration messages. Thanks you all for helping,
