While researching an item on marine Vivier tanks on Google last night I clicked on a link to a boatyard which installs them. As my default browser I use Firefox + AdBlock Plus + No Scripts as add ons. When I clicked on the "temporarily allow site " button on No Scripts, a warning pop up appeared on my screen saying something to the effect of, " Something" has attempted an illegal operation, it is strongly advised that you restart Firefox immediately. I can't remember the exact wording for "something" I think it said site but not sure.
I immediately closed Firefox, reopened Firefox again in safe mode first and when that worked ok then reopened Firefox proper. The warning box never said which of my security programs had sent it and therefore I would like to know just what exactly what this meant.
I use Comodo Firewall Pro, Comodo Anti-Virus Beta, Comodo BoClean and SpyWareBlaster as real time protection. I also have AVG AntiSpyware, SuperAntispyware, AVG Rootkit installed as back up kept up to date and used in a rota system. Also yesterday I uninstalled SpyBot S&D 1.4 and installed the new SpyBot 1.5 and did a scan after installation which found nothing, not even a tracking cookie.
