    I installed the latest version of Firefox on my PC. My computer runs Windows XP and seems to meet all the system requirements listed on the Mozilla homepage, but I press the Firefox shortcut, and nothing happens, not even an error message.

    What's going on?

    Try creating a new shortcut to Firefox.

    Right click on the Desktop and select 'New'>>'Shortcut'.

    Click on 'Browse' in the shortcut wizard and navigate to the .exe, click Open and OK.

    Didn't make a difference, I'm afraid.

    Start>FF>Safe mode.
