Hi everyone :)
It seems I am becoming a regular pain for the support folk on TSF after I installed Windows 10. I am sorry. And I am sorry if I should have posted this in the Windows 10 section.
My problem is sometimes, after shutting down the PC and starting it up later, when I click on Firefox and Chrome icons, they dont launch. The mouse pointer just turns to the spinning circle (which replaced the hourglass). And they wont launch until I click on Edge browser and, that launches, along with Firefox and Chrome. Could someone tell me why this is happening please?

Moved to Windows 10 Support. Could be a networking issue.

Major Flaw in Windows 8 Slow Browsing on Chrome, Firefox? Internet Connection Issues?
A couple of weeks ago I installed Windows 8 (fresh install from scratch, not an update) on my computer. I do a lot of web browsing and over the last couple of weeks I've been using Windows 8, I could swear the web browsing wasn't as fast at it used to be on Windows 7. I then noticed I was having...

Chrome, Firefox, IE won't start after trying Samsung Kies and Kies Mini. Opera will
I've posted this same topic in the networking forum but I think this subforum might be better. Mods can delete the other one. Yesterday I read about a new firmware update for my Samsung Galaxy S3, and I decided to install Kies on my laptop so I could get it (for many Galaxy S3 users in the...
