any ideas on how to fix this? pops up every time I start firefox and then just at random times...

I click cancel and it goes away and immediately re-appears...

after I go thru the click cancel - close - reopen - click cancel - close -reopen routine

for about 20 times it stays gone for awhile...

I made the background with the stars and arrows etc because copypasta of just error message by itself was too small to upload...

and I was bored...and it looks way cooler this way...

all error messages should be so aesthetically pleasing...

I'm guessin you've already deleted your cookies and cache but if not that could be worth a try. You might also wanna take a look at you per site permissions to see if anything's amiss though I doubt that will be much help unless you find some glaring anomaly.

What OS are you runnin and what version of Firefox? You might try doin a search mentioning this issue relevant to the OS and version you're runnin and see if anyone else mentions similar issues and if so has a fix been found?

Just kinda pokin around here really, but hey, what could it hurt winking

Check for malware and re-install the mouse driver.

Sorry to say SO, but throwin $$ out to solve a problem that really only requires a bit of personal effort and ingenuity dudn sound like a reasonable course of action.

My preference will always be to stay with the real deal open source Linux OS that runs on pretty much any hardware over Macs commercially modded Linux kernel that runs on their high dollar short list of hardware.

Of course many of the Mac fan boys don't know Mac is using a custom Linux kernel for their OS, something which actually allows Mac to save $$ overall, though these savings in OS costs are NOT shared with their Mac consumer base by lowering the costs of their products thumbs up

Different strokes for different folks but any of my Linux machines will run head to head beside a similarly specced Mac machine for at a bare minimum of 1/3 less the cost overall.

All in all Macs vs a Linux Ubuntu machine remind me a lot of the difference between just gettin a good cup o joe and gettin a cup at Starbucks. Both are still good coffee, one just hangs a fancy name on theirs and charges more for it winking

If you use those 2 .exe's then look at the permissions/settings for each of them and see if something's amiss. If you're not using one or both of 'em do a search for all files with their names as a part of the file and make sure to include the hidden files & delete them bitches!

Or, try deleting all the files for each and reinstallin 'em & see if you still have the problem winking

Your first mistake was letting your son on the thing. I shared my first PC with my two youngest sons for a couple of years (ages 11 and 13 when I got it) then learned the error of my ways and got my own.

I waddn gonna say that quasi, so thanks for mentionin it Dancing

When my youngest daughter was livin with me I set her up as a user on my machine (the only 1 I had at the time). Her MySpace and other surfin used to occasionally crash my machine which really sucked as it required a restart and reopening everything I had runnin on my user when I got back on.

One day she came over to the shop in a panic and said there was somethin seriously wrong with the computer and I needed to come look at it. When I got in front of the screen it had pop ups runnin like crazy & when I asked what she did she said she had gotten a message there was a virus on the machine and did she want to click the link to fix it and that's when the crap started.

I sat there for a minute lettin all this crap continue to fill the screen and asked her how many times I'd mentioned that with Linux we couldn't GET a virus?

Anyway, i reached over & pressed the reset, told her to log in and she was on her merry way again, sans any popups. Too bad it waddn that easy for Pro drinking

ipoint.exe is the MS Intelipoint mouse driver and enhancement software. I has and can be targeted my malware. I'm sure you can stop and disable it if you go to the Management (rt click on My Compuker and select Manage) then Services and Applications then services, find it in there and stop it and disable it. Your mouse will still work it it's a wired mouse. It might still work if wireless. Online radio things like sirius may have been targeted by malware too. I haven't done a whole lot of specific research but suggest that you do. That is if you want to eliminate the problem(s).

Try SuperAntiSpyware. Last version I tried was free and did a good job. Better than AdAware and SpybotS&D but on stubborn malware I've use all three and then some.

It's not malicious, spyware or a virus, it's just Firefox being a bitch.
Of course it could also be due a USB drive that wasn't "safely removed" but this shouldn't happen on Linux.

Heh. There's a lot of shit that "shouldn't happen" in linux. Sorry, I somehow missed he's using ubuntu.

Mac's don't crash and never get viruses either, right?

13 years ago I used a Linux Red Hat boot disk to retrieve "forgotten" passwords on Windoze98 computers.
I wonder if it would still work...

I think it was a knopix boot cd we used for resetting admin pwd in WinNT/2K/XP. Hell, it could have been anyix. It was not the distro of linux that mattered but the program to access and rewrite that part of the registry in Win.

You can clean infections from a Windows box using bartPE or really any OS that will let you do a r/w mount of the drives and execute a/v program.
