Firefox will not open at all

Everytime I click on Firefox web browser, the bar in the taskbar opens and then closes after ten seconds. I tried the web browser that FC7 comes with and it does the same thing. I uninstalled Firefox and reinstalled it. Still does not work. I have been using dillo for internet. Any help?
