In FF>Help>restart with add-ons disabled.

If that sorts out your problem then you'll need to go through the tedious process of eliminating which add-on is causing the issue by disabling them one-by-one!

Good luck!!

Thats an old unresolved Firefox problem that most users have experienced so don't feel alone, the good thing is that there are solutions that works.

I ll give you a solution that worked for me, every time. Whenever you close your browser, instead of closing it by clicking the "X", exit the browser by going to File>Exit.

By the way, this has never happened when running sandboxed as SBIE closes the browser for us. Even now, the rare times that I open FF out of the sandbox, I close the browser as I explained and the issue don't occur.

It works. I have not experienced this issue, the past 3 years.

Thanks guys... I won't post about Firefox issue here, because it will divert the topic. Back to Sandboxie .

Just a quick note, I think I was able to find the cause of the problem. I have posted details here :

Extension to reveal short URL link?

I will be now be back to using Firefox with Sandboxie.
