Once in awhile I'll open Firefox and it will take a minute to load. Then 4-5 Firefox windows will pop up, all to Infomoneyservice.c/o/m [Slashs breaking link, I don't want some idiot clicking it].

Most of the time I'll just close them all then open a new window, which will then open to my default home page Google.

But sometimes, they will cause Firefox to start crashing. I then have to go to my start menu > right click Firefox > Run in Safe Mode > Disable All Add-Ons, Reset default settings etc. etc.

I have run the following

Malwarebytes Full Scan Ad-Aware Full Scan

Both of them coming up empty handed after hours of scanning.


This happened

Not sure how often

Not sure, just started out of nowhere a few weeks ago.

I am a teacher in an outdated computer lab (my own problem). We use Windows 2000 and I'm thinking of FireFox 3.6. We are routed to the internet through a single server. I would like to be able to open multiple e-mail accounts through GMail or another free service, but I have been told that I will experience problems due to security protections. Does the multiFox extension allow me to do this?

Since the 3.6.13 Upgrade, the Firefox browser "locks" and will not me to close or access the Task Manager to close the program. A message stating "The Program cannot be closed as it is being "debugged". HUH! This has not happened until 3.6.13 Update was added on 12-29-2010. FYI - Waiting does not resolve the problem at all!

Our System is Windows 2000 Pro, Service Pack 4, Up to Date MS Security updates.
