My computer was recently infected and cleaned thanks to some great help from the Anti-Malware team here.

I have a weird situation with Firefox that may or may not be related to the recent infection, in any case, I was directed to this forum for better help.

I am running Firefox 3.0.8 on Windows XP Professional.

When logging on to Gmail, the dropdown that has the list of recent entries contains at the top a greyed-out entry that I cannot select or delete with the arrow keys. Below that are the other (normal) entries.

I was unable to find any answers by surfing as to the source of this problem.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

Problem resolved - it was a firefox theme called Pink Hope that was causing the weirdness.
