I've been having some problems with firefox since switching to it from IE as an alternative web browser. I've had it for about 2-3 weeks now since being previously on here and told to use Firefox or Opera as they're less buggy than IE.
Thing is though, sometimes Firefox will decide not to load pages and will just continue to load with a blank white page on screen. And when I exit and try to restart Firefox it will pop up a message stating this, "Firefox is already running, but is not responding. To open a new window, you must first close the existing Firefox process, or restart your system".
I don't know if it's to do with Vista or Zonealarm or even Avast antivirus.
These are 2 excerpts from "mozillazine.org" website about zonealarm and Avast on Vista:
"If you use ZoneAlarm on Windows Vista, Firefox may stop loading web pages and may also not exit properly. You may not be able to end the firefox.exe process and will need to restart the computer before you can reopen Firefox. If these suggestions don't work, uninstall ZoneAlarm and use another firewall (or use the Windows Firewall).
If you use Avast! Antivirus, switch to another antivirus product if you also have ZoneAlarm installed."
I also switched antivirus software from AVG to Avast since AVG wasn't really working too well.
Any ideas or solutions to these problems is much appreciated.
