Not to sound nasty.. but wouldn't it have been a little more prudent to type "I have a linksys router thats not displaying the port forwarding screen, but rather a blank window. Has anyone seen this or any ideas how to remedy"

Cause now, I can't help but snigger and wonder if the root issues aren't possibly related to the extreme number of toolbars you have installed??!!?

First suggestions

Try another browser (that know your rights alert window is questionable for a start) - and the other alert indicates its crashing your tabs attempting to do something. Session restore shouldn't start without reason.
Check for firmware updates for router
Factory reset the router.

jsr: I think this will help you - 

Ahahaha... nicely done.

No but seriously.
Like oblivion said, definitely the first thing you should do is get rid of all of those toolbars.
If that doesn't work, try opening the router menu in another browser like Chrome, Safari, IE.... etc.
If that doesn't work, take note of your username and password in your router/modem, and then press the physical reset button on the router. Load the router page up again and manually enter your ISP username and password.

Also, give CCleaner a go. Might get rid of any unwanted browser 'residue' that may be causing the problem.

Hope that helps.

I agree removing all the crapware from the browser and computer (all those toolbars etc) will probably resolve it.

Alternatively try a different web browser eg: Internet Explorer, Safari or Chrome.

Have you tried accessing the admin ui/website for the router from a different pc?

Otherwise you may have luck with updating the firmware of the device as the other guy replied in your duplicate thread that was closed by the mods.

Could be the router.
I'd like to try it from a different PC first though.

To reset those, you have to hold the little button in for about 10 seconds (all the lights will go off).
