Well hello everyone, I hardly drop in anymore except when I have a problem. So here is the latest:
I have Firefox 12.0. For several months it's been asking me to update, but it always fails and issues the following message:
I tried updating manually. The first time it kept trying to force me to accept the newsletter. The last time, it just generated this same message that I've been seeing with every prompted update.
Also I frequently cannot open firefox because there is already a firefox.exe process loaded and not responding. So apparently it doesn't always close in the background when I close it from the "X" button. Is this a bug that the new version fixes? I would suspect some malware wanted to keep it open for some malicious reason, but weekly scans with MBAM and ongoing scans by NIS 2012 do not detect any malware. I'm the only user on my desktop PC computer and am vigilant about keeping it clean and streamlined. All Windows updates are current up until this week's.
Any idea what may be the problem?
EDIT: I should add: if Firefox.exe keeps getting stuck in the background, a reboot will cure it for a couple of days. Since Windows Seven, I have not rebooted every day whether it needs it or not, like I always did before, since the beginning of Windows time.
