I have firefox 2.0.06 and zonealarm 7.0.337 and have notices something for months. When I turn on my computer and the first time I try to use firefox it will not work. It starts to load the home page and get to a point where it says done at the bottom but no home page. I can then take and close firefox and reopen it and it works fine. Testing I found that zonealarm vsmon was going to max during the load of firefox the first time so I restarted my computer and then stopped zonealarm then tried to open firefox and it opened to the home page the first time. I then tried restarting the computer and opening interent explorer and it opens the first time even with zonealarm started. I have two computers and both do this and I am sure that a lot of people would not even notice this since they do not turn off there computer very often. Not sure what is causing this but zonealarm for some reasons will not let firefox work after the first time you turn on your computer. I have even done other things and waited for 30 minutes but the same thing the first time I try and use firefox it will not go to my home page but close it and then it will work the next time. Check internet explorer and firefox are set the same it zonealarm.
