Firefox - failing to load from Desktop Icon

  10x 10:30 12 Sep 2007

Cannot load up Firefox. When double clicking on the Desktop icon, the 'hourglass' appears briefly,
as though a connection is being made, but then disappears and nothing happens.

I have tried downloading & installing a fresh copy of Firefox but the results are the same.

Anyone know the cause of this and how to correct it ?

Thanks everyone

Have you checked your Firewall to make sure that has not stopped it.And I presume that you have the Latest Firefox running.

From the start menu, Mozilla/Firefox Safe Mode. If you removed and re-installed and it still doesn't work a corrupt profile is quite probable. click here
