Hi, I'm receiving a strange pop-up message in Firefox (below). It happens no
matter what website I'm at. I rebooted, restarted firefox, cleared the cache,
checked the security lefvel, and still it keeps occurring. What do you think?

Same problem on Solaris SPARC (Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; SunOS sun4u; en-US;
rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041109 Firefox/1.0)

I removed all my "Live Bookmarks" but the issue is still present.

It is an EXTREMELY annoying popup appearing every ~30sec!!

after 1 hour having left firefox open, there opened 30 other warning popups
and had to close them one by one, so the staple increases always larger

Perhaps have you installed 'Info RSS' extension? I disinstalled it and now the
alert popup doesn't appear anymore.

Uninstalling 'Info RSS' extension fixed the alert popup for me also.

Thanks Marco!

More news. I tried to uninstall InfoRSS, but on restart, firefox wouldn't
uninstall. I had our admin log on and install/uninstall InfoRSS in the admin
instance of FF. Then logged back in and everything was fine. Apparently, there's
an issue with log-ins and permissions in XP. All's well now that InfoRSS has
been uninstalled.
