    Unresponsive script and Firefox plug ins

    I can't work out why this website freezes repeatedly while viewing this site and this site only. I get a dialog box entitled "unresponsive script" and the usual continue, stop script, etc options. I have to go into task manager and delete a programme called "plug in container for Firefox". This...

    Firefox problems

    I have windows XP and Firefox as my interweb browser. About a week ago Firefox re-installed or reset itself while I was away from the pc. It had reset (I guess) to default settings. Pain in the ar*e when you are used to it being set up how you want it for the last few years. It had lost all...

    Mozilla Firefox browsing gone all wrong

    Folks When I go into Google on Mozilla Firefox and try to go to MBclub on my laptop I am getting re-directed to random sites (not naughty) predominantly ebay. The same is true for other searches. Any clues what I need to do? MS Security Essentials says no issues found.

    Why is Firefox 7 so bloody awful ?

    I initially started using Firefox some time back as it was lightweight, didn't take up too much CPU or memory, and was fairly easy to use. Last week I upgraded to Firefox 7 and bitterly regret it. :doh::doh::doh: The program is extremely CPU intensive and is basically near unusable if you have...

    XP, Firefox 4, pages not filling screen.

    Recently had my pc reformatted & ever since a lot of pages do not fill the screen. They have quite large white borders or the downloaded page site on one side of my screen with a big blank white area & because of this (?) the font size is too small. I've tried Zoom in (which is crap) but that...

    Firefox 4 problems

    Hi all. I'm having a lot of trouble with Firefox 4. Previously on 3.6.17, and no issues at all, the upgrade is terrible! The pages load faster than 3.6, and 'in flight' it seems better than before. However. I just can't live with the 5 or 6 minutes it will take on shutdown to stop...

    Norton vs Firefox

    Had a call this morning from a friend who couldn't browse after Firefox updated itself to 3.0.4. So after being stupid enough to get involved in this timewasting exercise it turned out only Firefox was failing - moreover it was able to resolve the website DNS but couldn't connect. Firefox...
