Robert, this does not make sense. Are you saying that Firefox gives you this message?

"Firefox has stopped working it'll now done gone close."

That is bad English.

Makes me wonder if your system has been hijacked by spyware.

Do you have any anti-spy and anti-virus software?

Try clearing the cache of your browser. To do so click Tools, Clear Private Data.

Check ALL of the checkboxes.

Click OK.

You will then have to relog into the quaint little alternative forum as well as this one (your own forum), but that might be all it takes to help you out.

Yep sounds like you have been Hijacked, better run Web-root spy sweeper by Microsoft, and Avast, Then spy-bot. Also make sure you do a regular Microsoft update. My Keyboard quit working this morning and I found Three malicious programs, Cydoor-not so bad, but two Trojans. I guess I Got those using music downloads from limewire. Bad me for not paying attention and scanning them first. One came in as a Zip file, I should have known better. Embarassed

If you still have problems Go back to windows INTERNET explorer.
Go into the control panel and remove programs and delete Firefox, Shutdown and restart, and then reinstall Firefox. If you still have problems the download Hijack this and go to one of the Computer oriented forums, they will be able to show you what registration files, etc. need to be deleted.

Sorry Robert,

No offense intended. I thought you meant that Firefox was giving you that actual message.

Popups in bad English = spyware attack.

So that was what I thought was going on with your computer.

Anyway, I am glad your trouble has gone away. Smile
