Firefox 3 crashing?

  manrow 09:47 19 Aug 2008

Having updated Firefox recently, I have had the programme crash on 2 separate computers at different times. There has then been seen a message asking that a report be sent to Mozilla, who will email back with an update when the problem has been fixed?

After restarting Firefox I have had no more problems - yet! Anyone else any experiences?

I am using Firfox 3. Often when I close it,I get a message telling me that there is a problem and it will have to close!.J

I had no such problems till I upgraded to Firefox 3.

Is anyone using Firefox 2 having any problems?

ditto Marg7,
but also check any add ons are compatible with ff3 or require updating.

Thank you all very much.
I have tried a clean re-install of Firefox 3 with the same result.

Immediately before that I had completed a clean re-install of XP, followed by Windows XP update 3.

I am therefore a little confused at where my problem lies?

For the last hour I have returned to using Internet Explorer, and have experienced no lock-ups or crashes; hence as far as my computers are concerned there has to be a problem with Firefox 3 as I have now cleared the re-install of XP as being a problem too?!

Thanks Marg7, more information there that I did not know about!

I have the same problem as ribo did in August - I'm wondering if it is a problem with Firefox for, by now, you'd think that Mozilla would have solved it.

Am using XP SP3 and Firefox 2 and have no problems
