Hmm, I have 1 instance of Firefox open with multiple windows, and 4 instances of IE. Wanna trade? :-/

I've had a problem with this while the update to 06 was occuring, I got the message that FF was still running when it shutdown to to the restart. Brought up task manager and it was. I went to end it and got the message Access Denied. What's with that? Had to shut down windows and restart, and still havn't got the new FF installed yet. The only extensions I have are Java script, Flash Player, and Shockwave. I W2K w/sp4.
