Say i try to open a pdf link for example (although not limited to) and Firefox stops responding; if i close the browser and open it again, it will attempt to reload the same page that just locked it up.

Firefox help said McAfee can change preferences, but when I clicked on the link it provided in response to that problem (the link said ``Pop-up Blocker), it didn't discuss the anti-virus issue. I don't know if McAfee is the problem, though. And the problem of finding the pop-up box unchecked has persisted through several Firefox software updates.

All of the Fox Fire tool bars, drop down menus (ex: Tools or File) just have a blank box. Also, I can not minimize or close Fox Fire without using the taskmaster "end program" function. If I restart Fox Fire everything works properly for a few minutes, then the same problem re-occurs. All other internet programs work fine. (ex: Google, Explorer..)

This happened

Every time Firefox opened

== After updating to lastest Fox Fire version

I have the latest Firefox updates and I have been using it for a long time without any problem. It's running on Mac OS X 10.6.3.
