1. Use the latest version of Firefox with a new profile

Make sure you are using the latest nightly build of Firefox. Always install it in an empty folder.

Create a new Firefox profile and then start Firefox using that profile. Now, try to reproduce the bug. Of course, if what you're about to file is not a bug, but an enhancement request (RFE), you can skip this step.

Margaret, this is a little bit of a turbulent time for Firefox, what with 2.0 coming out. I used FF 1.5.0.7 for a long time, and had a lot of good luck with it, and many extensions installed. I did not go to 2.0 right away, because the extensions were not ready. I did use FF 1.5.0.8 for a while, because of security notices, but it seemed to want to update its self every other day, but never had a new version number. I waited a week, just to see who had problems with Firefox 2.0, and then yesterday I upgraded. Not too happy with the eye-candy toolbars, but otherwise seems OK. Support for 1.5.0.x will likely trickle off as 2.0 gets broken in.

Most of my decisions on FF are made by scanning this forum:

As to the spyware issue, I am not where you are getting messages that you need to clean-off spybot? Spybot is one of the good guys, why would you need to clean it off? Which web site did you search to to find the message, and how does that relate to the spyware issue? Get us the details on the message, when and under what conditions you get the message, and maybe...
