yes, my sister had just signed out of facebook when she got that error. only site she was on during that session.
hi, its me again. Today i have received this error myself, not my sister, but on the same computer. It happened after i closed firefox. I have a slow computer, walked away while firefox was closing, by the time I got back the message was on the screen.
What does this even mean, and what can I do about it?
Same here. This message popped up for no apparent reason. Only one page was opened at this time - a site, which I visited like thousand times before and never had any problems with. I'd really like to know what's happening.
It may help if you try to determine what is generating the error, possibly including a screen shot. There is another question where someone suggests it could be related to use of Google Updater. I do note that OP daytime09 has Google Update listed as an installed plugin under More system details
