Which password is it asking for or how can I find out what my password is? When I click the OK button, no matter what I type as the password, it opens the window but closes it instantly.

I have been unable to find out any details about this specific error message, other than for Google Chrome, which is strange because although I have Chrome installed I don't use it, I use either Internet Explorer or - most often - Firefox. This error is only occurring on the Firefox browser and is not isolated to any specific website (it happens regardless of what website I view, including this page).

I have also sent a query to Sun Microsystems - Java support.

how do I stop firefox redirecting to http://www.mybrowserbar.com/cgi/errors.cgi when a url is wrong? I'd like to keep the wrong one - it was probably just a spelling mistake. 3.6.10

Whenever I type in a url that is wrong, I get the page that says "Not Found" for less than a second, then it switches to an "Oops! This page appears broken. HTTP 404 - File not found." page from http://www.mybrowserbar.com/cgi. This is extremely irritating. I WANT the URL that I typed, so that I can edit it and not have to type it in again.

This happens every time I type a wrong URL.

So : how do I stop this?

Firefox doesn't shut down cleanly. It never has. It often only does a "top kill" which leaves the bottom running. It won't start again until you kill the entire process. I have to open Task Manager, hunt around for the remnant of the application ("firefox.exe"), and kill it.

How can I get FF to shut down cleanly?
