I can open ebay and see all of the auctions on the initial page but when I click on an auction I get the attached error message. I have tried everything I know of. I am running AVG and the latest firefox version. PLEASE HELP

URL of affected sites

http://ebay.com

Safari and Chrome have the same feature ... for the same reasons. :-)

If you'd like to discuss this further, I'd love to discuss it someplace else, but in this thread, we should be trying to help Chuck.

If you close Firefox, then start Firefox in Safe Mode, does the problem still occur? For instructions on starting in Safe Mode, see Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.

I tried safe mode and that did not work, any other ideas?

Thanks

Your Firefox settings and info are kept in a folder separate from the Firefox program, called your profile folder. Try creating a test profile, to see if the problem still occurs. See Profile Manager - Create, remove, or switch Firefox profiles

I tried creating a test profile and got the same error message. I downloaded google chrome and have the same problem if that helps at all.

That means the cause of the problem is outside of Firefox. Is there any setting in AVG that might be getting in the way? (I don't use it)

Did you ever find the cause of this? If so please let me know. I am having the same problem. Thanks

I'll tell you where the problem lies, one word. Firefox, totally unstable and nearly unusable browser. Any clown that tells you different is lying.

Browserjoke, this forum is here for people to help each other. If this were as simple as "the cause is Firefox", then we would see a lot more than just a couple of people in this thread with the problem. (I don't have the problem.)

Obviously, the problem is caused by specific circumstances, and what those circumstances are is what we're trying to find out in this thread.

Do you have the same problem? If so, try the steps above, thanks.

Ilias, If firefox wasn't so crash prone then why the 3.6.4 version to prevent it. "Mozilla has released a new version of its Firefox browser, 3.6.4, which besides the usual bug fixes and security patches contains a new feature that Mozilla describes as "Crash Protection". This is the much anticipated out-of-process plug-in (OOPP) "sandboxing" feature that prevents software such as Flash, SilverLight, and QuickTime from taking the whole browser down with them when they crash."

This browser is a kids toy. Get one designed by professionals
