Download Adblock Plus for Google Chrome™ experimental builds, be sure to turn on experimental API in about:flags first. This will block all video ads in chrome.

Yes, I can say for certain that a fresh install of Firefox on a clean profile does not have those errors. All he has to do is make a new profile("firefox.exe -p" in run) and his problem is solved but that's obviously too difficult for him. Some people would rather complain than put effort into solving problems. Most of the time when someone complains about a bug in Firefox, it's usually their extensions/about:config that is the culprit.

Well, hell. Just look at you go, Keyboard defender of Firefox.

I've been using Firefox for god knows how many years now, and the small little lock-ups and crashes have persisted through PC formats, uninstalls and complete fresh reinstalls.
I use 2 extensions (TWO).
Go ahead, scoff and call me a liar. I'm not the only one who has this problem. The browser is becoming horribly bloated and slow, and that's without extensions.

You fan boys are pure scum, regardless of what you're championing.

You've again made it quite clear you have no idea what you're talking about...

No you can't since you don't know what "those errors" are, and the complaint was lock-ups/crashes.

Also: please stop. You have repeatedly presented the same ad hominem argument here (both abusive, and circumstantial) and it is ultimately self defeating even if there is any truth in it.

Circumstantial is exactly what that troll is basing his statements off of... If FF really had issues with crashing and not responding, it would be listed as a high priority bug. Something as glaring and obvious as that doesn't go unnoticed. Anecdotal evidence coming from someone who thinks FF11 is slower and bloated compared to previous versions isn't very convincing either.

I never said it was more bloated then previous versions. I've found it to be that way for quite some time now.

Also, don't twist my words. Not once did I say that this was something everyone was dealing with. I stated that I am, and that quite a lot of others are too that I know of.
I was adding my opinion to this thread and simply stating that I finally, after many years, made the choice to leave FF for Chrome.

But your little fan-boy gland flared up and you got all hissy.
But, clearly I'm an idiot for using Chrome. You said so your self, and I mean, just look at you. Wait, who are you? Hmmm...

Anyway! Not to turn this thread into a poo flinging contest. I'm going to leave it at that and walk away. Retort how you like, I'll read it. But we're done here.

It's sad and pathetic to see so many people getting their pants in a bunch because of version numbering.


Oh, I so agree. It's hilarious to see the unfounded anger toward a browser they were likely fanboys of before Chrome came out. People seemingly get an almost aggressive hatred to any product that isn't what they're currently using. They'll find trivial, stupid reasons to pick on the product about. Like version numbers.
