    I keep getting this annoying pop-up when I'm in Firefox - You have chosen to open rpc.html with is a hyper text. What should Firefox do with this file?

    Anyone know what this means and how to get rid of it? Thanks so much.

    If you run a spotlight search can you find the file rpc.html?

    Cheers

    If you google for that text you'll find a lot of people on comcast are reporting it. Have a root around and see if you can find some fixes, but most messages are new.

    Thanks...

    ...Everyone. I appreciate your help. It doesn't surprise me that it's a Comcast problem. If I had a choice I wouldn't use them for anything. Once I find the
    "rpc" file, do I simply delete it off my Mac? Thanks again for your help.

    I would drag it to the trash and make sure it doesn't cause any issues before emptying the trash. I personally also open it in TextWrangler or some such to see what is in it and what it does.

    Cheers

    I know this isn't the same thing, but..... sort of connected, In Safari, even with BLOCK POP-UP WINDOWS ticked, why do we still get POP-UP WINDOWS?

    Just wondered....

    Strange

    Now, I'm probably going to show my ignorance, but when I go into spotlight and search my Mac for rpc.html, nothing comes up.
