I have encountered a very peculiar problem. For my internet browser I have used Firefox for some while now and have 1.5 installed, but last evening I found that on one forum I subscribe to a number of the clickable buttons such as view latest posts> where whited out, so virtually invisible, and that other functionalities like go to last viewed post> and add reply> were not there at all. Other forums are unaffected by this oddity and I have no problems if I use IE. I have done various viruses and spy ware scans but only the free McAfee on line scan showed an entry C:\ run bat virus name:Bat/qd313> The only reference I can find to the supposed virus on Google is that it is a false positive. I have also viewed a Hijack This scan and nothing immediately excites me.
So has anyone ideas as to the cause of the peculiar behaviour and how I may get things back to normal
