Is there a major resource (memory) conflict between AdBlock addon and Peerblock?
Sorry this is so long. I just downloaded FF 3.6.3 for Windows last night and added the NoScripts and Adblock addons while concurrently running Peerblock. Within a few minutes my entire system went haywire, more precisely a complete system failure. I/O, CMOS, IDEport2, ACPI, everything went haywire. The mouse and the cursor became unusable, it was as though someone was mashing on buttons or clicking repeatedly. When I tried to open FF again it literally opened more than a hundred terminals. Right click completely failed because it immediately closed. I couldn't use any programs or type anything anywhere on my system. This behavior persisted even when I booted into BackTrack 4 and even under BIOS. The entire system literally became unusable. Then I wasn't able to even make it past the splash screen in most instances. During boot this was accompanied by constant beeps. I was able to gather some information, but not much before the complete insanity. I did see in FF something about a corrupted module. Peerblock also generated an error report indicating I/O errors but because of the nature of this problem I wasn't able to really view or record either one. There were tons of ACPI and other errors in EventViewer under Windows while all this was occurring. More errors than I had ever seen before. Finally my system wouldn't even boot unless I left it alone for some time. I also noticed excessive heat. Finally Windows prompted me, after removing and reseating the RAM, to the repair console. It found zero errors, absolutely nothing, generating 0x0 errors for everything. but did indicate that it located the root source of the problem. When it started up both FF and Peerblock had been removed. Everything else was fine. I'm using the system now without a single problem. I've been using Peerblock for more than six mos. without any issues. FF runs beautifully under BackTrack 4. It appears to me this was a memory conflict of some nature that corrupted the CMOS or some other memory modules, but I'm not that savvy. I would like to continue using both these programs with Windows but if it's not possible; it's not possible. I'm not crazy and won't be installing and using both these programs together again. This was the most serious problem I've ever encountered, worse than any virus. Also, let me assure you this was not a virus. Since I've gotten back on my system I've run three different AV engines. I am willing to try FF, with AdBlock of course, again and update how it goes. I may even try the alpha5. I know your busy, but please help if you can. Any feedback or help would be greatly appreciated. I will continue to support the Mozilla community regardless of this issue.

None. Just the AdBlock and NoScripts addons.

I'm not sure what you want here. If anyone there at the Mozilla team has any input or can help me in any way with this it would be greatly appreciated. Just tell me what error reports or memory dumps you need or would like to see and I will oblige.
Is that Adblock Plus or "Ad blocker"?
Adblock Plus has a very good support forum over here: http://adblockplus.org/forum/
I have a new computer and have had problems with just about everything there is to have problems with. I chose FireFox over IE because I just plain like it better. I am at a loss as to what to do with the Error Console. It is full of errors, and I am afraid to use my computer because it may crash. I had to remove my MicroTrend Security System because of all the problems with downloads. I really have never seen any such disgusting things before from a computer. Perhaps I downloaded too many addons. But isn't that what they are for? If not, why not make a simple product with no add-ons that will work efficiently. I know I would buy one. This is a beautiful computer with a huge screen that can also be a TV, but what is the use if the Browsers are all fighting with one another and cannot get along. Worse than our World. Lets get all get along and try to get what everyone would like. We are not all NERDS, although I wish I were right at this moment. I wish some wonderful nerd would email me and take over my computer and take out what I don't need and add in what I do. There is a terrific idea for some brilliant NERD. I am desperate here in New York State, USA and need help NOW.
Thanks to all. I hope Firefox will send us out a Great Big Power Patch to fix all the ills of 3.6.3. I thought this might be the one. It surely sounded great. Thanks, Elizabeth
I believe it might be peerblock. In the remove programs pane of my win xp it shows as being 2.3GB big. that can't be right and ff has been on the pc longer ....
