Yes, I am running windows 7 so that might be why this is happening. I am not in a different tab, I click on the firefox on my desktop and get into my mail and then minimize it (or park it, what I call it) to the bottom. Then when I click on the firefox thing on my desktop again, I get a whole new firefox. So, I was thinking I should only have 2 firefox in my task manager showing but sometimes there are more. When I got that security alert thing, I think there were 5 firefox things I had to get out of. I just thought it was strange. Oh well, thanks for getting back to me.
