try mozilla FF Safe Mode: go to the start menu

Type in (dont press enter) "Mozilla"
In the results above, you will see safe mode
Enter that. you will have an options window pop-up to select what you want to allow.

Select (I think) to restore defaults and clear cache dont delete your bookmarks. You can also disable your add-ons in case one of them is causing the issue.

Ouch sorry to hear. Do you have an Antivirus Program? if so, run it to make sure this isn't a virus.

If you don't then get one of the AV's suggested on this forum. I use Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes.

If you aren't experiencing any other issues, then you might want to try backing up all your bookmarks (using export) then re-installing Firefox.

If the problem persists, we can try repairing your installation of Windows. this will replace key files that could be acting up.
