I've started getting another error message every time I open FireFox.
I click on the FireFox icon and immediately get a popup box with the error message. I click "OK", the message goes away, and I get the FireFox start screen.
TypeError: Components.classes['@softage.ru/skype/SkypeFfExtensions;1] is undefined.
I googled the terms, and found another reference to the same error message:
It seems to me that Java undated itself just a couple days ago. That would be about the time this message started. Coincidence? Probably not.
I'd rather be sure of what I'm doing when I attack this, so I'll await instructions.
softage.ru is a mainstream American software company that outsources to China and Russia; thus the .ru extension. One of things they create, is Firefox extensions, so it looks like you may be having a problem with the Skype FF extension. Removing it will likely resolve the issue.
Thank you, Ol'T. I think that has done the trick. I went to FF Tools/Add-ons, and disabled the Skype Extension, Skype Ext 184.108.40.20678. If it continues to perform without the error message, I'll remove the Skype extension altogether.
