    this website systemdoctor.com keeps taking over my firefox browser. It says it detects errors and wants to run a scan. I thought these problems were no existant on macs. I have had this error message come up at least 10 times in the past three weeks and I have to close firefox down and restart. How do i fix this?
    thanks

    do you have the "block pop-up windows" boxed checked in Firefox prefs, under the Content tab?
