I keep getting an error message saying that one of my browsers is still open when it's not?

This may happen for browsers who use many background processes, which still run after you close all windows. You can try restarting your computer and uninstall Dashlane immediately, before opening any browsers.

If this does not work, press CTRL + SHIFT + ESC simultaneously and check if there is any browser process still running. If you see chrome.exe still running, try the following steps:

Go to the Settings in Chrome by visiting this address: chrome://settings/

Click on Show Advanced Settings at the bottom of the page

In the section Background apps, uncheck the option to Continue running background apps when Google Chrome is closed

Then close all Chrome processes from your Task Manager (using CTRL + SHIFT + ESC) and restart your computer
