Have you considered it might be a bad JAVA program? People do write
those. Also, unless you are certain that site is a trust worthy site,
installing JAVA applets is asking for problems. In my opinion.
With that all said, I would suggest uninstalling JAVA and FireFox.
Reboot your computer. Run a Diskclean, then a SCANDISK followed by a
DEFRAG. After that, restart the computer. THEN, install FireFox first,
followed by JAVA. Restart the computer and see what happens.
The only other thing I would do personally, but don't recommend novices
doing, is going into the Windows registry (REGEDIT) after uninstalling
everything and reboot, and looking for any JAVA reference and FireFox
reference. Delete them. Reboot. However if you are not familiar with
navigating the registry, I would say stay out of there.
