I only have those four add-ons running. This doesnt happen all the
time. And it only happens with a CNN video news story when it does
happen. I dont know what the XML DOM add on is for.
I have seen this problem in the past but not for a long time. Have you
ever seen or heard of the problem where tabs (windows) just start
opening up and wont stop. They were opening up as "About Blank". I
have CNN as my home page.
I checked again for viruses etc, using malwarebytes, webroot and
mcafee and nothing was found.
