I left for a while and my girlfriend used Firefox while I was gone (about 20 minutes). Now that I've come back, Firefox does not load ANY css bg images at all on any sites. I've tried disabling all add-ons and restarting firefox and restarting the computer and clearing the cache and all that good stuff. Settings are not blocking images and are surely loading all image content automatically and all. In fact, according to firebug, css background images are loaded by the browser when i visit sites, they just don't display. safari works fine.

confused.

Do you think I have a virus in FF? Each time I load FF, all tabs open correctly, but after about 5 seconds, this electronic melody starts to play, and then, after about 10 seconds, shifts to a siren type of sound. I have deleted FF and reloaded, but still having the issue. It happens whether I have one tab open or several tabs open. I am not having this issue with Chrome, just FF.

I was trying to load a gmail message, locked the computer. Shut down and restarted. Issue started when I loaded FF.

Some music (sounds like from a slot machine) plays every time I startup Firefox. I've reinstalled the application, and replaced both the Firefox folder from the user's library Application Support folder and the org.mozilla.firefox.plist from the user's library preferences folder, using back ups from Time Machine. Still getting the music. Are there additional Firefox files I should try replcing? TIA for info...

When I display an ebay page, the photo for that auction appears for a second or less, then the image disappears and is replaced by a message that says "please wait". Beneath this message is a circle of dots which change from light to dark, giving the impression that they are going in a circle. I presume this circle is implying it is loading the image.

I'm running Firefox 3.6.3 on Mac OS 10.6 and am having the following problem: Drop-down menus in websites (e.g. the one right below this field) behaving strangely. Every time I click on the arrow to open the drop-down options, the drop-down box with the options starts shaking like crazy, making it barely possible to select the desired option.

When i visit certain websites and I click on a link that would open another window it often doesn't open. Sometimes I will come back to my Mac 30 mins later to find that they have all opened. Some sort of delayed reaction that can take 10's of minutes.

Sites where i have experienced this today are http://www.warrensmith-skiacademy.com/ then trying to click onto course availability. Also http://www.findaproperty.com/displayprop.aspx?edid=00&salerent=0&pid=6256674 when i try to click on map nothing comes up. There are other websites where I have the same type of difficulties.

If i transfer over to Safari everything is OK. This problem also didn't used to be an issue when I was running Leopard OS I'm now running latest Snow Leopard.

Does anyone have any ideas or is it just that Firefox is very buggy with OSX 10.6 ?

Thanks Symon
