Hi there

Suddenly - though not always - then I am typing info into Goggle Search or credit card info on a site, Always in FireFox, a pink search box appears in the lower left of the FireFox Footer TaskBar and hijacks whatever letters or numbers I am typing so that nothing enters the proper box and making the operation impossible.

I love FireFox but this occasional visitor is getting to me and I have been unable to find anything that affects it running in Startup. Also regularly run various virus and ad-ware and nothing seems to help.

Has anyone else encountered this problem???
