Firefox hangs and multiple processes listed in task manager


0

Since last couple of days, I have seen an issue with Mozilla Firefox.

Before I move to my question, my Firefox version is 19.0

When I open Firefox, only one default tab is opened. It hangs during the process I open new tab or do anything else.

I have seen more than 10 process running named with Firefox.exe. I go to each process and End them. After that reopen Firefox works okay.

May be because of the same issue, sometimes when I open firefox I get error message "Firefox is already running...."

Is there any solution to make it properly working as earlier?

I had the same issue earlier, I updated the version of Firefox and the issue was resolved.

So I suggest to update the version.

In some cases this happens because of infection of malicious trojan Backdoor.Poisonivy.CV

Refer the link http://kb.mozillazine.org/Firefox.exe_always_open.

I would prefer to take actions to remove it or scan your system with better antivirus software.
