    Question uri.host is explosive! & ufw

    The last month my Firefox-22 and now version 23 had circa 350 crashes. I've tried to search for a solution in Flash/Java, but that wasn't the point. I have no sound either. But host/firewall problems can't something to do with each others. So I asked here for help, but did not get it.

    So I try to get help for my Firefox-crashes. I deleted all my add-ons and tried also the 'saved modus', but the crashes they stay! Now I tried to start Firefox from the terminal and it crashes again, but now it gave more times a warn:

    eglefino@EglefinoPC:~$ firefox

    As for GUFW, you must provide your password (by pressing the UNLOCK button) to see changes in firewall.

    As for any warnings posted by firefox, put them in code tags:
    (CODE)Paste all your commands and outputs (or warnings) here.(/CODE)

    Change the parenthesis to brackets to get:
    Code:
    Paste all your commands and outputs (or warnings) here.
    EDITS POSTED BELOW:

    1) I'm assuming:

    Code:
    uri.host is explosive!
    means that gufw (or firefox) has detected that the website is malicious. Look at the command line output when navigating to another site.
