I'm having problems with just some websites. They begin to load normally but never complete. So I can often see all or part of the page, but can't interact - e.g. I can get into an e-mail program (e.g. Yahoo) and maybe open an e-mail, but I'm unable to reply to it. Or only part of the page loads and then hangs. Or sometimes none of the page loads it just hangs for a half hour showing a white screen. Other sites load fully and normally.

This has happened with Yahoo Mail, Ebay, Hotmail and some other sites.

Why are the download options no longer categorized as in flv, WMP, MP3 etc? All one gets from the download drop-down menu is: (480p), (240p) or (360p) for example and the name of the video of course. The way it is now, I cannot identify the type of video I am downloading as I could before. Thanks!

Issue

I have another kind of problem with Firefox

Description

When I open Mozilla Firefox, there is a blue/white bar with the words "Downloading the latest applications" in it. A dotted circle keeps spinning. Nothing stops or disappears and there is no listing of what applications are being downloaded. How do I stop this?

This started this week. The only thing that I did differently before this start was to add a router to my modem and connect them to my computer and laptop.

Infinite "Press OK" dialogs from bad advertisers are allowed to hijack Firefox. How do I stop them?

Some "nasty" advertisers use a popup dialog that says "Press OK to Continue" or something along those lines. I know the OK button will take an action I do not want to allow, but the advertiser is exploiting something in Firefox to infinitely generate new dialogs whenever one is closed, until I press OK. During this, the Firefox browser will not allow me to close the offending tab or the offending browser window, so my only escape is Task Manager. After this happens I cannot restore my previous session because that session contains the hijacker.

I have included a URL that generated a popup that had this behavior, but it may or may not show up repeatedly, and it appears plenty of other places online as well.

Please take action so that an open dialog cannot prevent a tab or browser being closed.

WARNING: Following link in "URL of affected sites" may result in unpleasant browser behavior as described above.

When I open a new tab it opens a Bing search window instead of a blank page like it used to. When FF starts it opens a blank page like it should, but if I click on the + to the right of the current tab is when the Bing tabs open. It's just a Bing search window not the Bing homepage. If needed I can submit a screenshot of the new page. I use 2 addons affecting tabs. Multiple Tab Handler, and Colorful Tabs. I think SlimBrowser is an IE based browser. I use Win pro 64 bi on a HP laptop and FF 3.6.8 I've never had this problem all the years I used FF until now Any Ideas? Thanks Floyd

Every time I open firefox, a "plugin check" website opens up. I thought that once I installed and updated all the pertinent updates for the plugins, the website would disappear when I re-opened firefox. However, the page wont' seem to disappear. I've done everything I could think of to get rid of this page. After updating all the plugins I restarted my pc, checked to make sure that my home page has not been changed the firefox plugin change, disabled all my plugins and even tried blocking the website via HOSTS.

(I am on firefox 3.6.17. I cannot update to 4.0 because some of the websites I use cannot support 4.0).

Help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
