I recently started seeing this on Tuesday and when I go to I get the wyciwyg://0/ but when I disable javascript I can get on to the website but then cannot do anything, I also notice this on Fanhouse. Is there any way of removing that without disabling Javascript?

By the way Just to confirm what I had above I also tried it on a different computer and still has problems.

Edit: I am using Firefox 3.6.4 and windows XP sp3 (Desktop) 3.6.3 and Windows 7 (laptop)

Your first link opens fine for me and I don't see anything about the second link nor does it open anything.

Something stored in you cookies or History maybe, try clearing them.
Mozilla/Anything Firefox I like the challenge

wyciwyg: is the protocol that Firefox uses to access files in the cache, so try to clear the cache to see if that helps.
"Clear the Cache": Tools > Options > Advanced > Network > Offline Storage (Cache): "Clear Now"

You may also need to clear cookies:
"Remove the Cookies" from sites causing problems: Tools > Options > Privacy > Cookies: "Show Cookies"

See and

I have tried clearing the Cache and cookies and yet I still get the WYCIWYG infront of the website.

Edit: When I have the WYCIWYG its trying to go to which is a network traffic area.
Edit 2: But when I run a Proxy server it works. So Im guessing it has to do something with my internet, Correct me if Im wrong.

I have this same issue with one of my own sites. Clearing my cache didn't fix it, but when I cleared my cookies it did. Well, for a moment. Then I logged into my site again and I got the error again! Super frustrating. The site works fine in Stainless and Safari in both logged in and logged out states. Only FF seemingly has the problem and I've disabled my cookie add-ons.

If you [also] believe that the issue may be caused by "" trying to connect, it can be blocked using the NoScript extension.
