This is going to sound really odd, but have you tried restarting your computer?

If not, try it and see if the problem comes back.

Ive just "tried" to PM you, I cant find the link to PM!!!!

On firefox 3.5, if i clicked the quick launch icon on the bottom, obviously firefox loads, click it again, firefox loads another screen and so on...but not on firefox 3.6, if its already up, and click it to load another, it just minimizes the current one, i have to right click and select firefox to get 2 icons loaded up..

sorry i tried to PM you but you have PM disabled, basically your problem is that only one instance of FF can be ran at a time, to get around this just hit CTRL+N from the original window, its basically the same thing but counts as only one instance
