Another instance of TB running...Please close...

Running TB 52 portable and getting this message every time I try to reply to an email on FF Portable pages. Task manager has only 1 instance running and closing the single running app lets me reply. Tried running FF in safe mode with add-ons disabled, no change. Any ideas? Thank you
