    Hi Mata7,

    I used live chat, to discuss the problem at Mozilla, they suggested disabling extensions to determine if this is the cause. Do u have Ad Block Plus?

    I'll start my trial by disabling it

    Note I could not replicate the problem in FF3's 'safe mode', so it's most likely an 'add on'

    I'm using FF 3.0.1, with AdBlock+, NoScript, IE Tab, FireBug, SQLite Manager, Web Developer, ColorZilla and have no problems whatsoever.

    Take a look at Tools > Options > Privacy tab and check Accept third-party cookies and select Keep until "I Close Firefox" to see if that cures the problem. Some Web sites might not display at all if the browser rejects these cookies.

    Hi Guys,

    I was using 'Adblock Plus' & filterset.g, I've removed filterset.g & the problem does not appear to be happening.

    Hi JrViejo,

    That's the same article that led me to uninstall filterset.g! Thanks for linking it here.
