Error: (Ilegal operation on Wrapped Native Prototype Object) after new security update

Posted

I have Firefox 22 installed on a HP Presario Quad 64, running Windows 7 Home Version. Firefox had been running and updating well until I received the latest Security Update (20130618035212) released on the 3rd of June, 2013, and it installed today. After installation the Error: Illegal Operation on Wrapped Native Prototype Object) Pops up several times when first opened, and once or twice on every operation I do, on any page thereafter. I don't know what the reason for this error, or what the update may be badly interacting with. I noticed that there seems to be no way of selectively removing a security update from within Firefox it's-self, can I remove it from windows Add/Remove to see if that's the cause instead of removing the Firefox it's self and re-installing. I haven't had a problem with Firefox for such a long time now that I became far too relaxed in my security of it, that I have to admit it caught me off guard. Any help, or information would be fantastic. Sincerely Rick M.

Hello,

Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode, which disables most add-ons.

(If you're not using it, switch to the Default theme.)

  • You can open Firefox 4.0+ in Safe Mode by holding the Shift key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
  • Or open the Help menu and click on the Restart with Add-ons Disabled... menu item while Firefox is running.

Once you get the pop-up, just select "'Start in Safe Mode"

If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article for that.

To exit the Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.

When you figure out what's causing your issues, please let us know. It might help other users who have the same problem.

Thank you.

Hello Waka_Flocka_Flame: Thank you for sending me in that direction.

I did as you said, and one at a time re-enabled each one except for the ones that I intentionally kept disabled.  I found something that surprised me, with the security update of 6-3-13, my extension of IB Updater 2.0.0.550 had re-enabled and was causing the uproar with the (Illegal Operation on Wrapped Native Prototype Object Error warnings.)  I knew this was a problem, but since Firefox kept it disabled automatically, I never thought to check that.  Everything is running very smooth now that I disabled the updater again, and all the other extensions are back in operation.   I appreciate you pointing me back at that section since it would have been the last thing I checked thinking it couldn't come back online unless I manually did it.  

I would be curious to see if this happens to anyone else with this update. Here's wishing you and everyone a Happy 4th of July, and again my thank you.

Sincerely Rick M.
