Chrome and Firefox crashes but IE7 OK

Firefox 3 and google chrome have crashed repeatedly today so I have gone back to using IE7, which is working fine. Is anyone else having this problem with chrome and FF3?

Mine is that it doesn't do what it said it would. My pc works OK, a bit slow, but improved since I stripped down the start-up menu to basic. But I still can't get a music-video to download from myspace or utube without constant interruptions, stuttering, stopping for minutes at a time, all the things Chrome claims to stop but doesn't. So IU just de-installed it.

Does anyone else have the same problem, and more importantly have any solutions?

I was getting crashes with Java update 10 and have had to remove it and go back to Java 7. I also had a crash with Myfirefox add on.

All the more reason to stick with IE

Strangely, ff3 (and chrome, but that doesn't crash as much) always seems to fix itself after a few hours. Overall, I still prefer ff3.
