Spam is email. How can you see spam in Firefox ? And what is a 'warning box' ?

You probably mean pop-up windows. In which case, we need to know where this. But
it will probably be a duplicate form an existing bugs (like the Fastclick popups
of bug 282931).
this is a dupe of "spyware launching popups in browser" or something like it.
Offcourse totally INVA
You have a old Firefox version (1.0) and we only accept bug reports from the
latest build.
It's also unkwon what you mean and bugzilal is not for support questions.

Please ask in the mozillazine.org Forums for end-user help.
