I have a Compaq laptop. Key software components are:-
XP pro SP2 (fully patched) with IE 6 (patched)
Firefox (just upgraded from 3.0.17 to 3.5.7)
AVG free (also just upgraded from 8.5 to 9.0.725, virus DB 270.14.133/2612)
ZA basic firewall free 7.0.483
Two months ago, I did a secunia online scan through firefox 3.0 and it went smooth. Now, when I try the same through firefox 3.5, the scan cannot be started. I give permission to secunia's java applet, but the web page doesn't load fully.
I try the same scan through IE, and the process goes smooth.
I have another assembled PC, with similar software components as my laptop mentioned above. However, in this PC, firefox is still 3.0.17, and AVG 8.5 (updated). When I try the secunia scan through firefox 3.0 there, it runs smooth.
Any clues as to what is happening please? Thanks,
