Anyone else noticed that Firefox 3.6.2 is crashing a lot? I'm debugging JavaScript, but that's not the kind of thing that should demolish the browser repeatedly.

Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts.

No problems (exception below) to report here in a 48 hour session with no shutdowns . . . XP Pro, a slew of active add-ons, always have at least 10 tabs active . . .

However the "pausing hiccup" appears to be creeping back in, as of this moment, task manager shows 250,000 K, give or take. But no crashes.

http,

I was having the same problem but it turned out that the new version didn't like the multi-desktop thingy I was using.

For me it would happen even when I went to re-order tabs using drag'n'drop. I knew to try it without my multi-desktop because the new iTunes was doing the same thing and after a long time I realized it was multi-desktop, my son disables it because his favorite game didn't like it either..

I disabled my multi-desktop it stopped crashing on me.

This is on a XP pro box mind you.

Are you running anything that expands your desktop or does anything funny with video memory?

Has anyone else noticed it appears to be cacheing more aggressively than previous versions? Had a few instances already of having to clear the cache to view fresh content when all that was required before was a simple page refresh or forced refresh.

@Demaestro, I have dual screens going with UltraMon. Windows XP here. Nothing out of the ordinary.

These crashes only started since upgrading to 3.6.2

Windows XP here


That explains everything.

Trying to use modern technology on a 9 year old clunker ;)

I gave up my XP a year ago and wondered what took me so long once I did because all the weird stuff and odd crashes kind of went away.

XP - Was working fine until today not sure when FF updated to 3.6.2. Now bookmarks are gone, bookmarks toolbar is gone, google searchbox no longer works, can't add new bookmarks. Haven't had any crashes though (yet).

Tried all the supposed fixes at support.mozilla but none of them solve the problem.

Say it ain't so FF ......

Had a couple of crashes early after updating. Not now. But speed seems slower now. (vista)

I have moved to Chrome from Firefox since after using it for years. the new version requires a need for a reboot every hour, and I have removed all add-ons, reinstalled, etc.

Windows XP Pro, yes, but all else works fine for me on the OS.

I think that Firefox is now bloatware, and I am sad to say goodbye to it.

How many times have I seen Firefox using a quarter of my 4 gig system memory?
