Just recently---about a week,I'm experiencing extreme slowness, and crashes. Also, it seems the computer---an old one, just keeps running or looking for something, even though it seems I'm at the website and it doesn't need to do this? This used to not be a problem, but now it is. From a novices point of view, It just seems the computer wants to keep computing when it probably doesn't need to? I keep getting the two messages: Firefox not responding---associated with the little hour glass, and unresponsive script. These are the message's I get when things get slow and "unresponsive". Hope someone can help. I do try to keep up with the computer maintenance; hard disk, and defragging. But, that makes no difference. I have noticed though recently, that when I do clear space on my hard disk, I keep showing a lot of space can be cleared compared to normal? Thank you.

I suspect this is a scam of some sort. Banks have fraud departments that they ask recipients to forward this type of e-mail to. Do you have the same type of policy?

Yesterday StartNow and Bing appeared on my screen with a toolbar. I don't think I did anything to cause them to appear. i managed to get rid of the toolbar. I went to the remove programs screen on my control panel and there is nothing there to remove for StartNow or Bing. I removed a cookie for Start Now, but it did no good. StartNow Bing appears whenever I open a new Firefox screen. I do not want it or need it How can I get rid of it?

Having an intermittent problem (90% of the time) creating and replying to emails in Hotmail. We can read emails okay and when trying to write or reply to an email all other aspects of the page are fine (menus, To:, CC:, Subject boxes etc ) except the area where you type the email. This is populated with the term "Bad Request". Works okay in IE and I have tried the Firefox cookies/cache clearing trick and tried Firefox safe mode to no avail. This has been a problem for about four days and it did not coincide with any Firefox updates to the best of my knowledge. Any help appreciated. Thanks

Bing has somehow sneaked onto the browser, probably when I installed new software. I am now missing some of the buttons I usually have replaced by the stupid bing toolbar. I hate bing, it is useless for me. Do I need to uninstall Firefox and reinstall it? I can't even find my bookmarks now. Other than Java and WOT, I don't usually have much in the way of plug-ins I use Win7 and Firefox 3 something

I have used "View>Toolbars>Customize" to put a "New Tab" icon on the navigation toolbar. This has worked for weeks and weeks, putting on a new tab when I have clicked on it. Suddenly, for no apparent reason, it no longer works and neither does the '+' at the right of a tab.

Could someone tell me how to get the "New Tab" feature working again, please

Firefox used to open with my iGoogle homepage when I opened it up. I have created my personal homepage and that's what I want when I open. Suddenly, it started opening with the last page I was on in a previous session. When I noticed this, I made sure to close every page that was open before I signed off Firefox. Still, it will open with the last page of the previous session.

All I want is for Firefox to open my iGoogle page every time, as my homepage, when I go online with Firefox. How do I do that? I think I've checked some box I didn't intend to but I cannot find what it is. Is this something I do through Google? If so, sorry, but this is annoying and wasting a lot of my time figuring out how to make my life 'easier.' thanks.

The only Firefox windows that work correctly are the first window I open (which has tabs saved) and the window that opens when I go into tools> options> help, any other new Firefox window I open wont let me open a new tab or window from the page I am on (I can still open new tabs with the bookmarks or new tab button), I can't use the back page/forward page/refresh page/stop loading page buttons and the page I am on doesn't show in the address bar.

this problem is not duplicated when viewing same page in Internet Explorer8.0.6xxx.

http://www.weather.com/weather/videos/news-41/top-stories-169/cool-problem-snow-still-piled-up-21500

This was most recent website visited and when it automatically redirected to the next video in line, it froze the mouse. I tried to launch the task manager at which point it locked out the keyboard.

(This PC is a Dell Precision T3500 w/ 6G of RAM running WinXP Pro x64, there is no rationale for this kind of incompetence.)

This happens WAY TOO OFTEN, like more than 50% of visits to video oriented sites like youtube etc
