Windows 7: Windows 7 starts Mozilla Firefox in safe mode

Windows 7 starts Mozilla Firefox in safe mode

On an irregular basis, sometimes 4 or 5 times a day or sometimes once a week, when I start up Mozilla Firefox it will only start in safe mode. I have to restart the computer (HP TouchSmart desk top) to get it to run correctly. If I try Internet explorer, when it's doing this, it keeps opening up new windows until it won't open up anymore.

I have all my updates up to date, anybody got any ideas. I run Norton antivirus which also automatically updates.

Thanks in advance Mike

Welcome to Seven Forums wasmeneh. Anthony may just be correct. You might tty a clean start to see if something is interfering as well.
