See what happens if you type default in search. Make IE your default and then reboot the computer.

Is the program available in add/remove programs? Can u try removing perhaps in safe mode. Try removing also with Revo Uninstaller. Very odd behavior.

I think Kucing13 has the immediate solution. I run FF3.6.3 and once in a while I launch it but nothing happens; relaunch ditto. Look in TM in <APPLICATIONS> tab: no FF. However look in <PROCESSES> tab and there it is. End the process and re launch.

Permanent fix: I have not bothered to fool with it since it happens to me rarely and killing the initial process and relaunching is OK with me.
