After all the fuss about security in IE7, I've been trying to use Firefox, which I generally prefer anyway. However, whatever sites I visit, after viewing about 5 or 6 web pages (however many or few "tabs" are open) the programme always freezes on me. Any idea why this is or what I can do about it? Thanks.

What level of FF are you running?
I occaisionally had problems with 2.0.16 but after my second (successful) attampt to go to 3 (now on 3.0.5) all has been well

Had the same problem myself, I think that Firefox was trying to update from 3.0.4 to 3.0.5 and hung. Maybe uninstall and re-install?

if you have Vista and the 'wrong' version of Zone Alarm or sometimes the latest version of Flash Player.

I've now upgraded to version 3.0.5. So far so good, although with Xmas etc I haven't had chance to test it too fierecly yet!
