Every time I try to open Firefox I get a message pop up from Trend Micro saying that someone tried to exploit vulnerabilities in firefox.exe. Trend Micro Security has stopped attack and I don't have to do anything, so feel free to close message but Firefox won't open.

Trend Micro Security has an Anti-Exploit solution which prevents browsers (like Mozilla Firefox) from running malicious scripts on infected websites and terminates a process which might be vulnerable.

While we investigate the matter, can you use other browsers (Internet Explorer or Google Chrome or other browsers) and let us know if the problem persists? We would like to know if this happens in specific environments only . Can you also let us know if there is a specific website you are accessing when Trend Micro Security closes Mozilla Firefox? 

We will keep this thread updated as soon as we receive information.
