If I deleted Firefox by accident why won't it let me re-download? Why does it keep telling me to close Firefox before I can download when it isn't open?

I went to delete websearch function and deleted firefox by accident. I could not bring firefox back up so I deleted the program to try to just reload and now it won't allow me to download it again. It keep's saying that Firefox is still running and that I have to close it and it is not open.

Internet Explorer, or firefox both will offer to make themselves the default browser, and there may be some actions that are not possible or very dificult in firefox. I do not recall Windows itself preventing me from using firefox, other than because of firewall action.
Possibly now security settings or software is blocking firefox downloads on your machine. When you do download firefox you may then discover it is blocked from running the installer, until you revise security settings.

  • TS3367 Why won't facetime work using Verizon cellular data? It keeps telling me I don't have a wi-fi connection

    Why won't my facetime work using the Verizon network? I don't have a separate Internet connection, so I bought the iPad 2 with the cellular data installed...every time I try to use facetime, it tells me that I need to connect to a wifi network &amp; that there is no network connection. ?

    The option to use Cellular for facetime is not available with the iPad 2. See below for a list of features.

  • I am unable to open, uninstall or reinstall firefox. It keeps telling me to close firefox yet it is not open. I have rebooted many times.

    Firefox will not open on my pc. When I click on it, the icon runs then nothing further happens. I tried to uninstall it and a popup box tells me to turn off firefox before it will let me uninstall. Likewise if I just try and install. Firefox is not open, I have rebooted, pressed ctrl+alt+delete. This has been going on for 2 days now. I do have gor toolbox but cannot get into the site to disable or update.

    You can go to c:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\ (or whatever your installation is) and create a shortcut for firefox.exe to your start menu or desktop

  • Firefox won't allow me to install the update. It keeps telling me to close any other copies of Firefox on the computer. Now it won't open at all.

    I am the only user and, as far as I can tell, Firefox is only running one copy

    Are you talking about the Google Toolbar? Did you install from here:
    And some users have problems using it as well:
    If it's not the Google Toolbar, please tell us what is it.

    Here are two screen shots to show you what I am seeing.  The first screen shot shows it allowing me to select (highlighted in blue) my admin user (which is what I am locced in as).  The second screen shot shows it allowing me to select the "Guest" user (highlighted in blue).  However when I click on the user "Orion" nothing happens.  It will not change to highlight that user.

  • How can I download Firefox when it keeps telling me to close Firefox before downloading?

    I have tried both 'run' and 'save' with the same results.
    I have checked to make sure there are no Mozilla or Firefox running in the background.
    I had Firefox running fine 2 days ago - it has always been my primary search engine.
    I am running Windows Vista on a Dell Inspiron.

    yes I am. windows isn't giving me any prompts other than the original one authorizing firefox to run the installation program before the download starts then part way into the download firefox asks me to reboot so the download it starting then it tells me I can't finish the download because I have to reboot because of a previous uninstall that needs to complete so when I reboot it should finish the installation but it doesn't and then when I try the download again I get the same thing again like it's stuck in a loop

  • TS1702 Why won't my apps install on my ipad? it keeps waiting. Please help

    Why won't my apps install on my iPad, it just keeps waiting. Please help.

    These are all steps that have worked for some other users in the past. They may not work for you, but they are worth a try.
    Make sure that you do not have a stalled download in iTunes - a song or podcast .... if you have a download in there that did not finish, complete that one first. Only one thing can download at a time on the iPad so that could be what is causing the problem.
    If that doesn't work - sign out of your account, restart the iPad and then sign in again.
    Settings>Store>Apple ID. Tap your ID and sign out. Restart the iPad by holding down on the sleep button until the red slider appears and then slide to shut off. To power up hold the sleep button until the Apple logo appears and let go of the button.
    Go back to Settings>Store>Sign in and then try to update again. Tap one waiting icon only if necessary to start the download stream.
    You can also try deleting the waiting icons - tap and hold down on an icon until it wiggles - the tap the X on the icon to delete it. Then try to download again.
    You can try resetting all settings. Settings>General>Reset>Reset All Settings. You will have to enter all of your app preferences and device settings again.

  • Help why won't photoshop let me edit my photos anymore?

    Why won't photoshop let me edit my photos I am a photographer and my photos need more editing but photoshop will open the tools but nothing happens with any of the tools!

    Too little information …
    Could you please post a screenshot with the pertinent Panels visible?
    Are Photoshop and OS fully updated and have you performed the usual trouble-shooting routines (trashing prefs by keeping command-alt-shift/ctrl-alt-shift pressed while starting Photoshop after making sure all customized presets like Actions, Patterns, Brushes etc. have been saved and making a note of the Preferences you’ve changed, 3rd party plug-ins deactivation, system maintenance, cleaning caches, font validation, etc.)?

    Why won't my computer pick up the wireless in my home? All other computers in my home can get the internet.

    Turn Off your computer. Then turn Off (disconnect power cord for 30 seconds or longer) the wireless router & then back On. Now boot your computer. Hopefully it will see the WiFi.

  • Why won't Apple give an update on why SIRI has crashed?

    why won't Apple let us what is going on with SIRI, it's clearly a HUGE issue for people like me who have had an iPhone since day 1 five years ago and who have waited for them to get this phone right, the very least they could do is let us know what the issue is and what they are doing to resolve it. Not to mention my new phone for some reason doesnt pick up as good as the last phone, does anybody else have this issue??

    All sales are final
    This has alwasy been the case.
    On rare occasions, Apple will allow an exception

  • HT4743 When I try to buy a tv episode, it comes up with a message "problems communicating with itunes store, try later"  click ok and then another messge comes up to verify payment info online. Everything is correct.  Why won't it let me buy??

    When I try to buy a tv episode on apple tv, it gives me a message of "problems connecting with store, try again later".  I hit ok, and then another message comes up to go online and verify payment information.  I have done that, all info is correct.  Why won't it let me purchase?  This has been going on for days.

    I figured it out!
    I read a solution for something that sounded similar.
    Anyone in similar position:
    Open iTunes app on iPhone, and pick an option from bottom, such as music. Then scroll down to bottom of page and where your iTunes ID is, press on it, and pick sign out.
    Then return to home screen, and double press home button and press and hold on first icon showing, until a minus symbol appears in the top left of icons present. Press on each minus symbol on each app in turn, until all app icons have disappeared. Then Restart the phone by pressing and hold the home button and the on/off/standby button at top of phone, until the apple symbol appears in centre of blank screen.
    Swipe to turn phone fully on and open settings and scroll down to iTunes and apps option and tap that. Pick sign in and put in your apple ID, it will accept it and then return to home screen and open iTunes a you'll find it works fine
    Simple really, but some like me won't think f this themselves!
    Hope that helps
