That could well be your problem.
There seems to be a conflict of interest between TB214 and FF3 wrt XPsp2Pro as follows. When starting the computer, a link from a TB email will not load FF but elicit a ?Mozilla crash reporter? popup. This only applies when from links in TB email, links from other programs or inserted hyperlinks in say Jarte or MSOffice2003 for example, start FF seamlessly and load links without problem.
However the problem goes further. If FF is loaded manually prior to activating a link in a TB email, brings forth a distorted link (adding \\ before www) in the FF?s address-bar, leading to an error page.
The frustrating part is, that after a few manual exits and starts TB appears to eventually find or conversely FF allows communication with, and all is back to normal, all by itself. Making the problem difficult to trace by elimination.
I?m running XP without any of the available Windows Components, except Accessories. From its own partition. Additional programs are installed on a separate partition. FF and TB are running with their respective default Themes. Suspected attack sites and forgeries are un-ticked in options/security.
What have I done so far. Re-installed both FF and TB from scratch (deleting profile folder). Ran both with all extensions disabled. No change. Checked for viruses etc. with uptodate ClamWinPortable and SuperAntiSpyware, clean. HijackThis, nothing untoward.
I suspect it to be a Windows problem without being able to put my finger on it. Any experience with same or thoughts?
