I have restarted my pc, then went to error console in mozilla from the tools section, not knowing if it helps. Here are 3 screenshots of logs from the error console. Errors, warnings, and messages.

Well, i opened ff, went to tools>add ons, and it brought me to "get add ons". Im not to familiar with add ons. I do have "Microsoft.net Framework Assistant 0.0.0 in my extensions(0.0.0?). I thought this was considered an add on? Other then that it seems like its asking me to start the add-on procedure.

OK. Now go to this site here and scroll down to Method 2: Remove the .NET Framework Assistant for Firefox and follow instructions there to remove it.

I cannot do the step below. The general.useragent.extra.microsoftdotnet is not there? I have already done step 1 and deleted the registry key. I was hoping i could have restored the key from the recy. bin, but its not there. So now im stuck with not doing this whole procedure. I would continue to the next step but the one step im missing is to reset it. So i dont wanna mess nothing up, by not resetting it. The only thing close is general.useragent.compatmode and general.useragent.locale


2.In the Firefox user agent, reset the changes that you made in step 1. To do this, follow these steps:
•Start Firefox, type about:config in the Firefox address bar.
•Scroll down or use Filter to find the following preference item:
general.useragent.extra.microsoftdotnet•Right-click this item, and then click Reset.
•Restart Firefox

i dont have 1 atm, i was gonna look around see what is the best, free, and simple antivirus also 1 that uses less of your pc. But not till i fix some of these issues. I also noticed that i have no option in IE to change the internet security zones to the default value. I know i had it last week, from setting them to default.

I also don't recommend tu run your computer without antivirus program. Please choose one of AV's below, download it and install it.


I recommend Microsoft Security Essentials as I'm using it and am happy with it.

yes, thats it, but it maybe its because they are already at default? Also, i was getting some encryption security error, for weeks everywhere i went,including just typing into a search bar, and my plugin.exe, is using and draining my pc i think. Theres still something going on. Also Framework plug in that i got rid of is back and still says Framework 0.0.0. So i started with my mouse cuz that was the last thing i remember upgrading, i uninstalled it, and so far no security issue.

I dont mind installing any antivirus program Render. My problem is when they dont wanna uninstall, such as microsoft essentials. That could be another reason my pc is acting up. I tried to uninstall it, but it still is in my system somewhere. I gotta get rid of this before i add another.
