I should have asked, how long has this been happening?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
I can now contact you because Iinstalled firefox. this problem started today.
I would try a system restore to yesterday before the problem started.
If that fails, uninstall it and install the portable version, I find them much easier to deal with in most cases, I even use the firefox portable....
