Firefox Crash?


For the last couple of weeks Firefox crashes
repeatedly, and I have finally noticed
that it is almost, if not exclusively, this site
that crashes it.
Anyone else?
Any ideas?
Nothing in the Mozilla "Help" pages has helped,
and filling out the crash notice boxes
hasn't returned anything.
Thanks

Have you tried clearing all of your history and temp files? Might help....might not. Just a thought.

ditto here.

Crash problems are usually from a certain 'combination' of apps... They replace each other's system files and reg keys.

My son has a friend that brings his laptop over... When he goes to u-tube, my router crashes

Re: Firefox Crash?


I'm on FF 3.0.4, and I've been on every iteration of it before that, and I've never had crashing troubles on this or any other site. I'm running XP for an operating system, if that helps. I'm staying away from Vista until Windows 7 comes out.
