When on Facebook, Firefox will shut down the network connection so that it can't communicate anymore, no incoming or outgoing traffic through Firefox. I opened TaskManager to try to kill the process, but it leaves a single Firefox.exe process running and it CAN'T be killed. I've tried everything I can think of. In an admin command window, normally Tasklist to check for the process and then Taskkill /IM firefox.exe would work. It comes back with process not found, even though it's in the Tasklist and still running in the taskmanager list.
When trying to kill Firefox, it always says "Firefox is currently running" with the option of close Firefox or cancel. If you select close Firefox, the window just comes up again with the same question while leave Firefox.exe still running in the taskmanager. If you select cancel, the windows goes away and the Firefox.exe process stays running in taskmanager.
So I used Sandboxie (sandbox program) to open another Firefox window to continue, which works fine for a while until Firefox decides to shut down the network connection again. I even tried logging off the user account and logging into a different user account, Firefox is still there, running and still can't be shut down. It's like a bad case of Herpes or Chlamydia or something. Then all I can do is shut down and restart the entire machine.
So to reiterate, Firefox cannot be shut down and removed from the taskmanager process list using the typical right upper corner "Red X" kill, or by way of taskmanager "end process" or "end process tree" and cannot be shut down by an admin command window Taskkill command or logging off and switching users.
I don't know if the "autoscroll issue" is an inherent attached problem or separate, but I have that one as well. I'll be looking at asomething and Firefox with a mind of its own will scroll down maybe 2 to 10 threads, sometimes stop, sometimes continue scrolling all on its own. It's annoying as hell. I will try the layout.css "false" fix and see if that works.
Both these issues only occur on my cheezy 3rd gen motherboard/computer, so the specs for cheezyness...
