I have a desktop PC using Windows 7. On my taskbar, I have several program shortcuts, the one in question is Firefox (FF). I use FF every day by starting it from the taskbar. today, clicking on it, as well as right clicking and looking for a way to start it, did not open FF.
Since I know it worked every day this week, I did a system restore to the last date prior to today (approx. 3/15). the restore showed "successful," but the problem with FF was not solved or changed in any way.
I searched under the C drive for FF and found "firefox.exe" but clicking on it as Administrator also did not open the application. I'm at my wits end because although I can probably download FF again (??), I doubt my bookmarks and folders as well as any of the special FF applets (forgot if that is what they are really called) will be loaded.
Any thoughts on what I can do to restore FF without spending days bringing it back to resemble what I now have? As a side note, the reason I don't use Internet Explorer is the top row of menu items (File, View, etc) do not display when I open it. See picture attached.
