Mozilla Firefox/Firefox crashing

Advertisement


Question
I have a Dell with Windows 7 home premium, 6 G RAM.  I've used Firefox almost exclusively for the last four years.  Other than the occasional "oops" where I have to restart the program, I"ve been happy.  Recently however, I will leave my computer (with a web site up) and come back to it later.  Usually after two or three web pages, everything freezes up and I have to manually turn off the computer and restart it.  (when I try to do this by shutting down windows from the screen, it never shuts down).  Also, when Firefox freezes up, everything does; I can't open other programs.  Any thoughts?  Should I delete Firefox and re-install it?

Answer
Hi Don,

Seems like you have so much FF plugins/extension installed. Try reducing/removing any unwanted plugins/extensions from your FF and check it again. Perhaps your update to FF cause FF to freeze with incompatible addons.

Here are some useful resources :-
