I'm new to Firefox please forgive me if this seems trivial..............

Can anyone please tell my know why this is now happening almost all the time, and how to stop it from doing this:

I select ' index.html ' from explorer by double clicking, then i get a small windows pop up syaing,

' Firefox is already running, but no responding. The old Firefox process must be closed to open a new window.'

Clicking ' Close Firefox ' does just that, and then opens again with the index.html page open.

I'm sure its something i have done, but i don't know what.

Many Thanks

Porkyuk

That seems to have worked by taking this out many Thanks.

Would still like to know what this does and if it will affect any other function of the great Firefox.

Regards
