    Hi Have Safari and Firefox which I use as my primary, Safari will open immediately but sometimes Firefox will not or is trying to load for a long time. If I turn off Imac and start sometimes that helps Firefox open sometimes have to try more than once. something is stopping it from opening what would it be?? thanks

    I'm sorry, but I don't understand your problem. Your post wasn't very clear.

    What Mac OS X, what Safari and Firefox version are you using on what specific Mac model?

    Is your internal HDD full (has less than 10% of empty storage space)?

    Then the only thing I can surmise is that you have a bad Firefox installation. Try trashing it and downloading it fresh. I can't think of anything else to recommend.
