    I have an interesting Firefox problem. I can press the icon and nothing happens but when I go into Task manager and then processes it shows as running. Why is it not running on the display?

    There are two issues I've noticed. First, Firefox windows sometimes go missing. If you hold the Alt key and press Tab a few times, you sometimes can access them and they will return to the task bar. Second, Firefox sometimes does not shut down fully, and so firefox.exe still is running and cannot be restarted. In that scenario, after waiting a minute to let it complete whatever it might be doing, you should just kill the process.

    For more information, check out the article Firefox hangs at MozillaZine Knowledge Base; the failure to shut down is under the heading "Hang at exit."
