    I've read on here that others have had this problem. I read several posts on this site and others about deleting word from the Login Items section, however, there aren't any programs listed in this section on my MacBook Pro.

    I am new to macs so any help is greatly appreciated.

    Hold down the MS Word icon on the dock and click Options then set it to NOT open at startup.

    Well it wasn't set to open, but you led me to the fix anyway. Apparently, I wasn't actually closing the program (I was just clicking the red dot at the top left) so word was still open when I would restart and it automatically opened back up. When I did what you said, I told it to quit Word and then rebooted and it didn't open back up.

    Thanks for the assistance.

    Always close applications with "command+Q" to prevent this from happening.;)

    Firefox opens at startup, no matter what

    Firefox opens when I start my 2009 MBP, Lion. No, the box is not checked in SysPrefs to re-open at startup. No the dock icon is not checked to open at startup. No, it is not listed in my startup items. IT JUST OPENS! I had some wierd permissions issues recently, tried everything then just reloaded Lion to fix it. The only issue since then is this auto-opening problem. Any ideas?

    Update: If I remove FF from the dock, shutdown computer then restart, FF opens itself and installs itself in the dock. Wierd!!!!
