Firefox gripe

Postby oliverjames on Tue Apr 01, 2008 7:26 am

Am I the only one to experience zillions of Firefox crashes. This application is fast becoming the Windows of the browser world. I am constantly having to reload the damn thing as it crashes due to a pdf download, a por bit of java script, opening RealPlayer...

Roll on version 3 in the hope that things will improve.

Note - currently running ver 2.0.0.12.

Ciao

I don't have such problems. Now I'm using beta 4 of Firefox 3, but in 2.x series I didn't have that issues. What it happens to me sometines it's that the browser (series 2.x and 3b4) freezes with certain Flash webpages. But I associate that with a problem of the Flash plugin rather than the browser itself. Because it only happened when a web have any Flash object.

Perhaps your problem comes more from the fact that you have extensions that conflicts between them. But I don't know.

I get more than my share of Firefox crashes...but I always associate them with the Flash plugin...

Maybe with the much hyped news that Adobe is joining the Linux Foundation they will get around to releasing a stable Flash implementation for Linux.

Could be a Flash problem, whatever it is it affects Firefox under Win XP also.

It seems to be a java script issue- try http://www.saint-gobain.com/en/html/soc ... =1&pays=18

and click on any of the listed activities. Crashes my Firefox (under Mint - haven't tried XP) without fail.

However Firefox 3 handles the page perfectly. Roll on Firefox 3.

OK :oops: Things just improved a lot, loaded the JRE Firefox extension. Now wha isn't that installed automatically?
