Thread: Firefox Issue

  1. #1

    Firefox Issue

    For some reason while at work, I'm having a hard time accessing on Windows 2000 & Firefox 1.0pr version. It takes a very long time to bring the page up. Most other pages I visit works without problems.

    It works fine with IE and at home on my Debian box, I have no problem using Firefox and

    Has anybody else noticed this?

    I tested it with the same exact setup and had no problems.

    Has anybody experienced this type of problem:

    Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US;
    rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

    microsoft windows 5.1
    microsoft windows xp professional 2002

    I was using firefox then all the sudden I couldnt get
    into my bank account to check the balance. I cant get
    into any screen to pay for an item on line. Some
    sites will not come up at all.

    I don't have it but someone I know does. I think maybe spyware and/or virus.

    She also said she can't seem to reinstall Firefox and having similar issues with IE and secure sites.

    Any ideas? Thnx.

    Did she try clearing her cache, temporary internet files, and cookies?

    Might I suggest that the latest anti-virus definitions be downloaded and an exhaustive scanning be conducted. There might be something there that isn't overly malicious, yet. Cassius is also right in suggesting adaware.

    Spy-Bot Search & Destroy is also a great friend to have in that situation.
