Try temporarily disabling JavaScript. In the Tools menu select Option, then go to the Content panel in the Options window and de-select the setting "Enable JavaScript". Close the Options window and then try to close the tab. You can then re-enable JavaScript.

Other things that need attention:

Your above posted More system details list shows two Flash plugins, one a very old Flash 5.0 r41 the you should remove.

  1. Shockwave Flash 10.1 r85
  2. Shockwave Flash 5.0 r41

You can find the old Flash plugin file NPSWF32.DLL in the plugins folder within the Firefox program folder (C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\plugins\) and remove that file. Also remove the flashplayer.xpt file in the components folder.

Disabling java script and disabling flash did not solve problem. Firefox 4.0.1, MacOSX 10.6.7


Problem exits/originates from this page, as example: http://visitors-survey.com/promo/us/survey.php

You can disable the onbeforeunload script with this bookmarklet code.

cor-el, Thank you however..... I am unfamiliar with how to implement your suggestion as a Firefox user. Searching the help files returned nothing. Will you elaborate for me? Thank you!

You can create a bookmark and paste the code in the location field of that bookmark to have easy access.

Thank you for the additional instruction. I did place the code provided into the URL of a bookmark. However, once on the page cited above, when I select the bookmark created which contains the code provided, nothing changes. The pirate page is still active and I am unable to escape it. I am still unable to escape the pirate page except by force quitting Firefox.
