    Is Firefox Flashing Me?

    Been having issues with Firefox this morning. Even after a Flash update and several restarts my Firefox screen looks like this.

    Chrome is working fine. Anybody else have this? Anyone know what's going on? I checked for new add ons and programs that might have sneaked in and ran the virus scan. Nothing.

    Try clearing you cache and see if that helps. Looks like it's not loading the CSS file for some reason.

    This might have some clues as well.

    I think I found the issue - Great Arcade strikes again. This little bit of malware has gotten into a number of computers I work with. I started to see highlighted words in posts using Chrome and when you hover over them you can see that they are from an add on called Great Arcade. I removed the addon from Chrome, but could not find it in FF. Another restart seems to have helped. More as this unfolds.
