hello everybody,
i was using mozilla firefox without any error occurence until i installed visual studio 2008. after installing visual studio a year ago, an error used to occur as depicted in snap shots added.the error causes firefox to be closed and start debugging in visual studio and further the debugging never got completed and the same event use to occur every time i opened firefox but when i had uninstalled it, there was no error in firefox and it was working again smoothly. but now from june 2010 i have observed that even after uninstalling visual studio , the same error occurs again in the same manner and when i install visual studio again the problem still persists. the version of visual studio i used every time was visual studio 2008 itself.
so i seek solution or this trouble.
i appreciate all responses from everybody.
thanks !!

This seems to be a relatively common problem with Visual Studio when Firefox is installed along with certain Firefox addons. The most commonly reported Firefox addon to cause this problem is AVG's Safe Search/Search Shield addon. If you have this addon installed, try disabling it and restarting Firefox. If the crashes stop, then you found your culprit.

If crashes continue, then use the Addon manager in Firefox to disable all addons. Once they are disabled, start re-enabling them one at a time to see which one causes the crash. Once you've found the culprit you can remove it.
