OK so I have two issues going on here:

1. I tried to go to a site I like to visit today (it was a porn site), and it told me it could not connect to 127.0.0.1. Why is it resolving this site as my local host? I checked my host file, and it looks clean.

2. Everytime I "Clear Recent History" in Firefox 4.0.1, it locks up on me and eventually gives me this error:

Warning: Unresponsive script

A script on this page may be busy, or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the script now, or you can continue to see if the script will complete.

Script: chrome://browser/content/sanitize.js:133

Can anyone tell me, please what I can do to look into this? I've run Malwarebytes (after updating, and in both regular and safe mode), ESET, RKILL, and TDSSKiller. None of them turn up with anything.

Yeah I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed it. No more problems, at least for now.

Well the error about the non-responsive script came back. I can't find anything anywhere about what causes it or how to get rid of it. :-/

If you didn't perform "clean" reinstallation, some bad settings possibly remained.

Uninstall FF completely, following these steps: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Uninstalling_Firefox
Do NOT miss any steps.

Install fresh copy.

I can't delete the components folder in the C:/Program Files/Mozilla folder. It's denying me access to the scriptff.dll.

Do I have to do that because I did a re-install once already, or what?

OK I was already the owner. But I did it anyway. I still can't delete it.
