Blank gray screen

Post by midwestrookie on Thu Apr 08, 2010 11:38 pm

While on the internet, this frequently begins to happen. My web page goes all gray on my screen, except for about 1/2 inch on top with the web site heading. I cant refresh, F5, or anything. There are no buttons available to do anything, just blank gray screen. My only choice is to just close the screen and open up Firefox again.

Does anyone have any ideas on what this is?

I have backed up my stuff in case its crashing. I have run all of my anti virus stuff twice. I have defragged also.

I have the new Firefox and Vista.

Hello,

Does this only happen while on the Internet? Does this happen on other browsers? Please post a screenshot here.

Hello,

You did not post the screenshot. Does this only happen while on the Internet? Does this happen on other browsers?
