My firefox flickers all the time sinc I had Connect Tech (AT&T) started messing aroud with the registery.  Trying to delete emails takes several times to delete, and sometimes the page will switch to a different page.  Really a problem.

I have checked with Connect Tech four times and they still haven't fixed it.  Any suggestions?

Hello -

This will give some details of F/fox and a few other programs -


Download Security Check by Screen317
* Save it to your Desktop.
* Double-click SecurityCheck.exe
* Follow the onscreen instructions inside the black box.
* A Notepad document should open automatically called checkup.txt; please post the contents of that document.
Note: If any security program requests permission to access the Internet, allow it to do so.


Thanks -

Sounds to me like an issue that should be posted at http://forums.att.com/t5/General-Posts/Connect-Tech-what-quot-Tech-quot/td-p/3092833 .


ISP problems need to be resolved by the ISP, not posted in a computer forum...we have no idea what they have done/undone.

Before reading further, I HIGHLY recommend you follow instructions posted by two previous posters.


However, as a simple and often overlooked possability, please complete IN ORDER: Open IE and set it as your default browser. Uninstall firefox. Restart your computer. Open IE and reset everything to default. Go to mozilla and download the most recent firefox. Install firefox and set as your default browser.


This may not fix the problem, as stated I recommend you follow the previous instructions first as it may be an issue caused by your ISP. However this is simply overlooked a lot of times.
