Hi malware fighters,

Had Minefield for testing on my XP SP2 for ages, no problems until I updated the last version of the nightly build, it came with a launch executable I had to associate with Firefox and then a kind "run away problem started" I could barely handle by riding down the machine. First the launch executable windows started to cascade in the window, then on a second occasion  I got a "run away" problem for various instances of jqsnotify.exe starting to seek connection to port 5152, some dozen instances I saw in task manager. I uninstalled Minefield, and just use the stable Firefox 3.04. There I have no problems.
Was the installer corrupted or what happened here?

My dear forum friends,

Succeeded in putting Minefield latest nightly trunk build back into my Minefield program folder from a zip file and the latest nightly trunk build is now active and snugly running with some essential extensions enforced. I like to experiment with firekeeper with the Snort rules as a very attentive IDS inside Minefield. My version now is: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.1b3pre) Gecko/20081129 Minefield/3.1b3pre ID:20081129034849
