Looks like a problem with clearing private data saved by plugins.

You can try to enable only one setting at the time to Clear Recent History to see which one is causing that problem.

I still don't know that chrome is? The other problem is I never had this problem with Mozilla Firefox until I downloaded 4.0.1 update. I would like to know if it is possible to get rid of chrome and if so how. I have cruised through my programs and do not see any chrome listings in my program downloads, so it must be something that was added when I updated Mozilla Firefox. Thanks for any other helpful hints on how to handle this annoying problem.

chrome:// is a protocol that Firefox uses internally to access XUL (XML) and JavaScript code added by Firefox itself and extensions. You can paste the code (without a trailing line number :### - "chrome://browser/content/sanitize.js") in the location bar to see the content of such a file. You may need to use View > Page Source in case of an XML file.


If you see such an error then there is a problem with the extension mentioned in that chrome URL or a problem with a file in the Firefox Profile Folder.
