Ask the game's maker for what to try next.

Details matter.

What game? What loaded twenty times? How/Why did that happen? Did you have a problem with starting the game and clicked the game icon twenty times? No details here, so the questions.

Anyway I don't know why it happened. That is what I am trying to find out and then today I was looking at my history in firefox and I shut it it would reopen. It did that a bunch of times. So I had to close firefox to stop that. I tried to reproduce the error with it reopening but it did not. What could cause this? Thank you.

Thank you for the link you gave above.

Did you just now download it and install or does it require an browser to run it or was it already installed on your system prior to all the above?

You seem to be having issues with Firefox, version unknown.

Some malware web site scanners are reporting malware at this site in the past.

Google search results here: http://www.gamehouse.com/download-games/hoyle-puzzle-and-board-games-2012 Be careful what you click here as some sites are rated less than safe by WOT (World Of Trust)

http://urlquery.net web site scan of your link is unavailable at the moment; site seems down.

Reason for doing all of the above is because a web site you may visit in the past and was then ok, may not be the next time you visit; reputable websites are attacked all the time.

Suggest you scan your system with your current antivirus and also Malwarebytes to see if anything is amiss.

Malwarebytes Free here: http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html?part=dl-10804572&subj=dl&tag=button

Please note: Ignore the download link for ARO 2012. This link is not for Malwarebytes. The one with the solid green "Download" button and c|net is.

Realarcade before that and then they shipped us to Gamehouse. There are no viruses. Though I had numerous false positives with Kaspersky.

I was just you know looking at my history in firefox and that was it. When I was playing the game it wasn't the first time I played it that it ran twenty times.

I'd follow R. Proffitt's advice and go to the game site and ask there, and also post at Firefox forums and see what they say about 'twenty times' what?, exactly?.

The more details you give them, the better quality help you will get.
