In last few weeks (can't remember when it started) have been getting MANY "Object not found ... 404" errors. Usually get the error trying to access the first 2 or 3 (or 4 or 5) URLs from the search results page (from Google) - but - also get the error for some images when a URL is accessed ... but the text is OK.

On the results page the first few 'entries' sometimes have a 'light beige' background and these are the URLs that totally do not 'work' (get the err w/o anything else). Other 'entries' (ie URLs) can be accessed but sometimes get the error when the browser tries to access an image (but the text is OK).

I'm using Fx 3.6.18 and can't remember if got the errors in previous '3.6 versions'.

Just tried accessing a 'results URL' with IE9 and it worked w/o the error. Guess that means it's an Fx problem - I'll try reinstalling 3.6.18 ... seem reasonable? Anyone else experiencing this?

Before you go there...

Close Firefox. Go Start>All Programs>Mozilla Firefox, click on Mozilla Firefox (safe mode).
If you're using Firefox 4, or 5 go [b]Help>Restart Firefox with Add-ons Disabled.
Same issue?

    This version will download a zip file you will need to extract first. If you use this mirror, please extract the zip file to your desktop.
  • Disconnect from the Internet and close all running programs.
  • Temporarily disable any real-time active protection so your security programs will not conflict with gmer's driver.
  • Double-click on the randomly named GMER file (i.e. n7gmo46c.exe) and allow the gmer.sys driver to load if asked.
  • Note: If you downloaded the zipped version, extract the file to its own folder such as C:\gmer and then double-click on gmer.exe.

    Posted Image
  • GMER will open to the Rootkit/Malware tab and perform an automatic quick scan when first run. (do not use the computer while the scan is in progress)
  • If you receive a WARNING!!! about rootkit activity and are asked to fully scan your system...click NO.
  • Now click the Scan button. If you see a rootkit warning window, click OK.
  • When the scan is finished, click the Save... button to save the scan results to your Desktop. Save the file as gmer.log.
  • Click the Copy button and paste the results into your next reply.
  • Exit GMER and be sure to re-enable your anti-virus, Firewall and any other security programs you had disabled.

IMPORTANT! If for some reason GMER refuses to run, try again.
If it still fails, try to UN-check "Devices" in right pane.
If still no joy, try to run it from Safe Mode.

frustrated !!

Uninstalled Firefox 3.6.18 ... reinstalled 3.6.19 - still same problem

Have been resisting Firefox 4 (and now 5) because some extensions I use use frequently aren't compatible - guess now I either stay with error or update and not use some of
my 'beloved' add-ons

I'm little bit confused.
That was supposed to be clean installation, so you shouldn't be having any add-ons running at this moment.

There is pretty simple solution for most add-ons to be working in FF4, or FF5.
I have a lot of add-ons and they all work in FF5.

No add-ons - true ... was thinking ahead

Took closer look at add-ons I use and the main one that isn't supported seems to be ( at least FF 4) is FireFTP. It's VERY necessary for the 'web design/support' I do. Do you know of another FTP add-on?

I use FireFTP and after installing the add-on mentioned earlier it works in FF5 no problem.
