What's up with Firefox?

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
It crashes so God damn much. Like once or twice a day. And there is nothing wrong with my PC. I'm thinking about going back to Internet Explorer 0_0 at least it's stable.

Anyone else having problems??

Use Google Chrome, not Internet Explorer.

I can't really comment on the whole crashing of Firefox thing, but when I did use it I noticed it ate up a lot of memory compared to other browsers.

I'd just make sure all of your stuff is up to date, including flash. Flash seems to have caused most of my FF problems in the past, not the browser itself. Otherwise, Chrome is a good backup to have.

I have had zero crashing problems with 4.0... What are you doing when it crashes? what addons do you have?

That's possible. I haven't checked my flash version. It's just annoying if your doing something important because I do a lot of my university stuff online and can't afford for the browser to crash.

I am too. First off when i downloaded FF4 all the fonts looked like total garbage. It was impossible to read. I disabled hardware rendering of pages which fixed that. But now I have issues like where the first 30 seconds to minute after launching firefox, the program is really unstable. like doing any fast movements causes it to hang for a good 2 minutes. And opening PDF documents is really slow.

I switched to chrome. Miss a lot of the addons but I won't look back. Hopefully future versions of 4 might fix these problems. It's possible that it's just my computer though, I haven't done a windows reinstall in a while.

I stopped using firefox because I had a similar problem OP had. Chrome is good its light weight and you can have addons like firefox.

I remember when firefox was great it was better than IE but things have turned upside down now IE is better .
