    Hi All,
    Last week I installed the latest software update as well as the latest update to Firefox and ever since then every time I restart my Finder automatically opens. I'm not sure if it's a result of the software update or the update to Firefox. In any case, how can I prevent this from occurring?

    Might be a result of the Apple updates recently. I had to restart my iMac today and sure enough, Finder was open when it restarted. I haven't installed anything else in quite some time and don't have Firefox.
    No idea how to prevent this.

    Pretty sure that is what he means. I have been having this same thing happen on and off. No clue what to do about it though...

    If you're using beta version of Firefox, revert it back to the latest stable version.

    Don't know about the OP, but I sure meant Finder window! Sorry. I use Safari 4, no FF, although I'm not sure how any particular browser would affect this.

    if you leave a finder window open when you turn off your computer, i believe it will open up again when you boot it up again.

    Try this (sorry can't confirm if it works right now):

    Go to System Preferences > Accounts > your account > Login Items

    Click the + to add an app

    Navigate to your startup disk /System/Library/CoreServices/

    and select the Finder application.

    Click Add and then check the "Hide" box.

    Maybe a bit late to react, but the application start always immediately when you are logging in.
    Windows you didn't close when you shut down your computer will open again when logging in exactly how you left it. I still don't understand why they put effort in that, but it does what it does.
