Sometimes a problem with Firefox may be a result of malware installed on your computer, that you may not be aware of.

You can try these free programs to scan for malware, which work with your existing antivirus software:

Scan with all programs

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one.
