Firefox/Thunderbird keep crashing??

Postby andrewwest on Fri Feb 15, 2008 8:19 am

Hi

Everything in Mint is fine except when browsing firefox keeps just dissapearing as does Thunderbird (but not nearly as much).

I have used Firefox on and off on PC Win XP, Mac and now Mint and the same problem has happened on each system over the years. For example last night i was trawling through ebay and went to my page, it started to load then just dissapeared. I had to restore session and carry on without probs untill it did it again a few minutes later. It seems to happen infrequently.

Any ideas?

Thanx

Andy

Perhaps this is a question for the Mozilla forums
This seems to be more with your use of FF and TB than with the operating system

hmm
I think that many of the questions I answer and people think is software really is hardware on the brink of collapse or beyond

I'm getting this issue too... bigtime! It's happened to me before under Windows and I would have hoped Mozilla wouldn't make the same boo boo twice. It's really starting to drive me nuts!
