Even though it's already Friday 13th in some of your locations trust me when I say this isn't bad luck of evil seed's.
I installed Linux Mint 5.0 Gnome and all my programs and all that jazz but firefox refuses to work properly. I used the beta which comes with the distro but it was too slow, so I downgraded to 126.96.36.199. All fine, except that it takes ages to load and to close (always freezing when doing so) and constantly freezes my computer.
Searched for an answer and couldn't find one... Already tried to delete all files and plugins both from 3.0 and 2.0 and nothing. It still freezes... and weird thing is, that "inside" firefox, browsing is very fast and smooth.
