Default Could somebody please help with Firefox

Everytime I open up firefox I get this message "Firefox could not install this item because of a failure in Chrome Registration. Please contact the author about this problem." Then after this box comes up for times in a row firefox opens up and then another box opens up to display add ons and extensions. How can i stop this madness. Thanks

Did it ever work? Or did it not work from the beginning.

If it did work before did you install a plug-in just before it started erroring out?
Make sure all of your plug-ins are gone as well when you try your re-install.

Sounds like more of a problem with Google Chrome. Uninstall anything associated with Chrome, and start over with Firefox.

You could run CCleaner to get rid of any leftover crud.

Try this: Right click the Firefox icon on your desktop, then select "run as administrator".

Yep, tried that one too. I got one I didn't try yet. I pick up my laptop and throw it like a frisbee. Thanks for all your help and I hope you some more suggestions.
