Getting "Security System Warning!" Window in firefox
Using slackware 12.2, xfce, Firefox 3.0.16 and for the past few days i have been getting Persistent System Security Window that looks like MS Firewall and you can't click on the X or Cancel because then it activates a so called security analysis with green progress bar. I open a terminal real quick and issue pkill firefox command.
I have been trying to get to the basicconfig site to follow tutorial on firefox security update but that window keeps comming back. I emptied out my /tmp files but i am still having same problem and don't know what to do.

Firefox 3.0.16 ??
you might think of installing the current .
FireFox 3.6.3

do you have 'no-script' and 'ad block plus' installed ?

You might also find the NoScript extension useful; I always install it; grab it through the FF Tools -> Add-ons menu
