Problem starting Firefox session

Hi there,

I am a new user to Ububto having just migrated from Windows XP. I installed Fiefox as I have been a long time user of it. I did have it working OK but know when I click on my Firefox desktop icon I get a Close Firefox box containing the following message : "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system".

I couldn't see it running anywhere so I restarted the system. Nothing happened and I still got the same message. 

Then I de-installed Firefox and then re-installed Firefox but I am still getting the same message.

Can anyone help a "newbie to Linux" with this problem.
