View Full Version : What happened to Firefox?

It should be simple.

While browsing Firefox suddenly shut down. When I go to click on the icon it was renamed to "m" It is probably something I should be concerned about, but do you have any possible answers?

did you do a virus/spyware scan lately? if it found anything besides cookies what was it? also is there anyone else that uses that computer that was fooling around with it or just did it to scare you

Only I run the computer and I run anti virus on a regular basis.

/edit: They don't find anything

Devan, a corrupt profile can cause Firefox problems, sometimes an extension is involved.

I would follow spybot_S&D user's advice, and inquire in the Mozilla forums if you have not already done so. :)
