I've been noticing for several updates now that I seem to be getting major memory leaks. Firefox starts off around 1-200,000 K memory usage in task manager, but within a few hours it will be past 800,000 K. Now, the things I've seen so far talk about disabling plugins and all to find the problem, but this doesn't happen immediately, so disabling things one by one isn't very feasible. How can i track the memory leak to a specific plugin, or else make it leak much, much faster so I can do the one by one thing?

This happened

I have windows 7 installed and and I didn't have any problem with Facebook until recently. Suddenly, I couldn't watch videos on Facebook and when I tried to play a game it wouldn't load. As a matter of fact I don't even get a loading message on my screen, but instead of that I get a blank page with no messsages at all. I have the latest version of flash player installed and I've already look through related topics, but I couldn't solve my problem.

I cleaned up a malware infection and, upon opening Firefox, I got a notice that a new add-on had been installed. It is called XULRunner 1.9.1 and appears to be from Mozilla. Given that I'd just had the malware infection, though, I'm suspicious of anything new adding itself.

Could anyone tell me if this is a legitimate add-on and what exactly it's for/does? Thank you very much!

2.) After the above error, I also am not able to access live chat support such as Mozilla chat support or CheckPoint (ZoneAlarm) and receive the following error console message: server does not support RFC 5746, see CVE-2009-3555

Firefox 3.6.8 crashes when accessing Add-on Manager and Google Toolbar (v 7.1.20100723W) is enabled

Running Firefox 3.6.8 on a Win7 64x HP dv7 notebook

Receive the following “Warning: Unresponsive Script” box when accessing Add-ons Manager...

Contents of box:

“A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: file:///C:/Program%20Files%20(x86)/Mozilla%20Firefox/components/nsExtensionManager.js:623”


The warning box cycles on repeatedly (Don't ask check box/Continue/Stop Script has no effect)…have to kill Firefox through “end process” in Windows Task Manager

Method:

Open Firefox in SafeMode…disabled all add-ons…accessed Add-on Manager with no issues

restarted firefox in normal mode twice to ensure normal mode is active… accessed Add-on Manager with no issues

enable add-ons one at a time and restarted twice for each add-on and accessed Add-on Manager with no issues

enabled Google tool bar and restarted … accessed Add-on Manager and the browser failed with the above script error…killed firefox through task manager…

restarted firefox… accessed Add-on Manager and the browser failed with the above script error…killed firefox through task manager

restarted Firefox in safe mode…disabled Google toolbar…

restarted Firefox in normal mode twice…accessed Add-on Manager with no issues

uninstalling/ reinstalling does not work…same issue

is any search engine toolbar?…I have read yahoo is crashing as well

I get an alert message several (10+) times a day while browsing the web, it says that the URL is not valid and cannot be loaded. Sometimes I can hit OK on the message and then click the link again and it will load, other times I have to go through this process several times and others I have to restart FF to get the page to load. This happens on many of the sites I visit and is not limited to just a particular few. It also happens when I click bookmarks from the menu and bookmarks toolbar. Sometimes it even happens when I type in web addresses that I know are valid (ex: espn.com). It's been happening since I installed FF but it is getting worse.

I have a new Gateway laptop with Intel Core i5 2.26 Ghz and4 gb ram. I downloaded Firefox immediately, my browser of choice. However, what I've discovered is that almost immediately Firefox would open an unrequested new browser window when I click a link. E.G. I was on Yahoo today and clicked a link to daniweb after doing a search. (I was testing the theory.) Almost immediately there was a very quick flash of my browser window, almost as if something was opened and immediately minimized. After that daniweb loaded. If I go to the start bar and hover over the Firefox (Using Win 7) icon, it shows only 1 open browser window. About 30 seconds later though, the new browser window pops up in front of the Daniweb window. This time, the new window contained the following URL... http://www.yellowpages.com/raleigh-nc/programming?From=MRCH2 As you can see, it basically did a yellowpages search for programming in my area, presumably because I am going to an IT site. And now, if I hover over the Firefox icon on the start bar it shows to open browser windows.

The window which pops up unrequested is frequently yellowpages although sometimes it's a news site with a search for whatever I had clicked on. Occasionally it has been a "you have won site". I have pop-up blocker turned on and have tested through various test sites that pop-up blocker is in fact working. In some ways, this is more insidious because it's not a pop-up like we think of a pop-up, rather it's an entire browser window.

I have googled and googled trying to find a solution and thus far no one else has posted anything similar to this problem.

I keep getting the message "Although this page is encrypted, the information you have entered is to be sent over an unencrypted connection and could easily be read by a third party". I have unchecked all the boxes in the Tools>Options>Security>Settings. They weren't checked to begin with. In fact, if I select the "I'm about to view an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information" option I get a dialog box that looks completely different and is worded "You have requested an encrypted page that contains some unencrypted information. Information that you see or enter on this page could easily be read by a third party." When I click continue I get the the original message too! What is going on and how do I fix it?
