User Help for Mozilla Firefox

My Firefox has been acting very strange lately. For example, I'll go to this board http://p214.ezboard.com/fstlouiscardinalsfrm6 and the pictures won't show up but before they did when I used my Firefox browser. When I go that same board though using a Avant browser, I can see everything.
I also noticed I can't get on to this board http://intruderalert.com with my Firefox browser but if I use my Avant browser I have no problems.
I've also been noticing more pop up ads too lately. That never was a problem before.
Does anybody have any idea what the problem might be?
Try Safe-Mode And see if it works.
If it works in safe mode an extension or theme is causing the problem, uninstall the last extension or theme you loaded.
If it doesn't work in safe mode try a new profile.

No problem with the pics here.
intruderalert.com does not work on either FF or IE. It appears not to be a valid domain.
Pop-ups are increasing because their purveyors have found ways around the blocker. There are endless threads about this subject already. To make a long story short, yes, you can still block them, with a minimum of effort. I get none -- and indeed, have never gotten any, except when I went out of my way to look for them so I could add them to my block list.
The only extension I had installed in it was a Favicon Picker 0.2.5 I uninstalled it and it made no difference. I didn't install any themes. I'm just using my default Firefox 2.0
Using the safe mode makes no difference either.
Um, there's no such thing as Firefox 2.0. The latest version is 1.0.2, with 1.0.3 in testing.
both sites seem to load fine for me using firefox 1.0.2
This happens to me as well, except I've noticed it's because my "load images from originating site only" box is checked. So I unchecked it. And it checks itself again after I reload. This never happened before I upgraded.
intruderalert.com works for me now. It must've been a temporary victim of the DNS poisoning that's going around.
