So I searched for the solution to this problem a while ago. I did all the updates and fixes that I found. It seemed to help a little but now the problem is so bad that I don't even have the patience to use the internet on the computer any more. I am about to dump Mozilla and install something else. Help!!! I get this message about 85% of the time I go to Yahoo to check my mail but other sites as well.

Pin It button 1.1 (pinterest@robertnyman.com) Pin It Button 1.35 (jid1-YcMV6ngYmQRA2w@jetpack)

Are these the same program? Having more than one version of a program may cause issues.
