    Lately lv'e been getting this alert with Firefox:
    dumprep.exe was blocked from modifying Firefox in the applications it says c:\windows\system32\dumprep.exe Process ID:3836 Type:ZwSuspendThread
    l'm unsure whether it's been because l've added a few extensions to Firefox or not.

    Is Fx crashing when you get that alert? I would allow it and then send the report to MS.

    Which extension did you add to Firefox?? I had a problem lately with the RIP extension. Had to remove it. Otherways try to remove one extension at a time and see if it fix the problem.

    RIP works fine on 1.0.6. It's just the latest version it has trouble with. I never upgrade Fx right away when a new version comes out because invariably some extensions won't work with the new version.

    l have Firefox version 1.0.7
    Some of the extensions l have installed are spoofstick(which detects spoofed websites,Customize Google(removes ads and spam),Bandwithtester,Forecastfox,Net Usage Item,Adblock,No Script(which disallows any java script to run unless l allow it)can be a bit of a hassle but l like the extra protection,they reckon it's getting worse by the month with mafia like gangs trying to get peoples info from there computer.

    You are pretty much spot on.. organised crime gangs are responsible for a very large percentage of malware :rolleyes:
