  • Updated to firefox9 and now when I use extension of tree style tab the screen goes black, with the exception of the "window of the tab" and the part of the screen behind him

    Update firefox9. Using tree style tab extension. Everything works fine, except that my screen goes black when in 'tab window', with the exception of the window of the tab and the part of the screen behind him. Once out of the tab section everything comes back fine, but it is rather annoying. Checked homepage for the extension and have the updated version, firefox add-on page - it also says that it is compatible. Any ideas on that?

    Original title: computer running Windows 8 will not correctly restart after automatic updates & close

    I have Windows 8 my computer does not start correctly after it has automatically closed for the automatic updates last night. When I turn on the computer I can connect as user, however once I do it says welcome and the screen turns white. The only thing visible is the cursor if I move the mouse. There is no Apps and I can't get to my desk or anything else. I tried to restart again and press F8 and nothing. However, I can bring up the Task Manager, but that's all. Help, please.

    Hi Patricia,

    I understand that you get a black screen after that it was closed automatically for automatic updates. It might be difficult when things don't work the way it should be on your computer. This problem might have occurred because of the conflicted with the system files update or could be a problem with the display card drivers may be due to the virus/malware infection.

    Many users complain about the issue with a black screen to logon Windows. Microsoft has not yet determined the exact cause of this problem.

    However; I suggest you to please follow the steps suggested by Scott Atk began August 30, 2014 in the following link and check if this can help:

  • When you type my letters go all over the screen, everything happens with Firefox.

    After installing Firefox, when I type, the letters are going all over the screen, to the place where I try to type. I used to type without looking at the screen. Now, I have to watch... my cursor disappears, and the letters I type get into something that I previously typed correctly.

    Is when I installed Firefox, and it happens constantly.

    Hi Pete Spong

    Thank you for using the Microsoft Answers Forums!

    I would like to ask you a few questions to help focus in the right direction:

    Since when you receive this error message? Have you made changes to your system?

    Try the following steps:

    Step 1:

    Put the computer in a clean boot (namely if any third-party software hinders the process)

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7


    Check with step 1 (run a clean boot):-If everything works well after a clean boot, you can deduce that some third-party services are at the origin of the problem.

    Continue with the remaining steps to pin-point on the third party service.

    (Note: after find you the problem causing the program, you will have to perhaps to update or install a newer version of the program and also don't forget to put the computer to a normal startup)

    Step 2:

    Install this update if it is not already installed on your computer and check.


    Hope this information was useful.

    Let me know if it worked.

    All the best!

  • When I type a different letter appears on the screen

    This has happened recently and only appears when I use mozilla. If I use another browser I have no problem, and when I am using another program I have no problem. I have reviewed various support questions, but none can help so far.

    Such a problem can be caused by Anti-Keylogger in ZoneAlarm, so you can disable this function until ZoneAlarm has published an update.

    You have several keyboard layouts installed?
    It is possible that you have activated the keyboard by accident using the sequence of keys to rotate the page layout.

    Windows remembers the setting by application keyboard layout and you have probably changed the keyboard by accident via a keyboard shortcut.
