Hey Guys, I'm having this crazy and extremely annoying issue. Just yesterday an issue started where I have two processes of firefox.exe running, one is the browser, and the process ends when I close the browser, it averages 150-200k ram. It runs fine...

But the second process, starts up without me even having to open firefox at all, It just randomly pops up, and starts with about 8k of ram, then it slowly builds to about 10k, and crashes. I don't understand why this keeps happening, It doesn't stop no matter what I've tried, I looked through the process handles, I've tried running spyware scans, I've checked autoruns, everything I can think of, and nothing.

It's very frustrating because this keeps popping up a crash report every 45 seconds or so... Any ideas?
