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:

Microsoft Security Essentials is a good permanent antivirus for Windows 7/Vista/XP if you don't already have one. Windows 8 has antivirus built-in already.

Further information can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox issues caused by malware article.

Ad blockers like Adblock plus aren't likely to help here, as this is probably caused by malware.

Try using several antivirus programs, as suggested above, and see if they find anything.

Also, if it is possible you should upgrade to a newer version of windows, as windows XP has numerous security issues.
