    question Problem with Firefox Windows

    Hi,

    I am using firefox latest version in my laptop. It was working fine from last 1 year. But recently, I am unable to open a 2nd firefox window. When I am clicking on Firefox icon, I could able to view my homepage and am able to open as many tabs as I can...but when i am trying to open a nwe window it is not opening. Even if I am trying to open a lhyperlink in a webpage in new window, it is not coming up. I am able to see only one window. Can any one of you let me know how this is to be solved?

    I had a complete virus scan on my system and there is no problem.

    Thanks in advance

    Hello it Could be that skype extension 2.2.0.102 Would be the Cause of this problem. Try disabling this extension with 3.0.6 It might Solve Your Problem, thanks

    It happens because of ghost or zombie Firefox running. Open your Taskmanager (Alt+ Ctrl+Del) and check the Process Tab. Check for firefox.exe Process - should be only one. If there is any a zombie or ghost running, then End that Process. And try to open new window.
