I ahve a number of problems that showed up in the last few weeks, and one of them is Firefox not responding to links. I normally have to click on a link about 10 times for it to work. The "done" text kind of flickers with the address when I click the link and it doesn't work.

I tried re-installing the 1.5 Beta and then installing 1.0.7 again. Nothing helped. And I really don't want to use IE, because it's infected with a high number of "great and helpful" toolbars and it keeps changing the homepage.

I also keep logging out of each and every IM clients I have. And, in at least 1 (new) game, the server list doesn't load at all. I even have a problem conencting to the GameSpy ID server.
I have a 1Mb DSL, my provdier is the main phone+internet provide rin my country.

Thanks for any help you can offer.
