Anyone experiencing this?

I haven't changed anything since I installed FF3. Today, however, FF3 crashed 7 times for me while I was browsing WebmasterWorld. Also, today only I've been having strange caching issues with images, I believe. Very strange behavior only today, every other day has been fine.

I've tried a bunch of things, restarted my browser, computer, etc... Nothing seems to make this caching problem go away, and it still crashes at regular intervals (it seems).

Anyone else experiencing this? It's getting really annoying. I'm considering using IE for the day ;)

Ack! Don't do that! Try this [webmasterworld.com] instead! It hasn't crashed on me yet. ;)

No crashing here. Even with dozens of add ons.

Yep ! Add-ons can be the problem... No crashing yet but still use Opera for every day browsing. Only FF for debugging although the Firebug is showing strange security error message (this will fix in the next version).

I thought it might have something to do with the add-ons, just I thought it would have been weird if I didn't change anything with my add-ons since the installation. Whatever, I'll disabled them and see if that helps. I'm not using half of them anyways. :)

Yep, FF3 has been as buggy as hell. Regularly crashes 4 or 5 times a day. Its crap basically. Opera is far nicer and I`ve also been using it more lately.

Are you guys still using a Firefox 2.x profile? The most common reason for Firefox crashes is extensions. You can export your bookmarks to a .json file, backup and remove your old profile, then restart Firefox 3 and let it create a brand new profile. Import your bookmarks from the .json file, then reinstall your extensions.

Is there an easy way to also move stored passwords, form history, etc. to FF3?

From a clean install I`ve got a laptop with nothing more than Firefox3,AVG & ZoneAlarm. FF3 still crashes. No extensions installed either.

Using FF3 since download day using my FF2 profile and installed a lot of add-ons and I haven't had any crash since then. FF2 in the past crashed several times with me, but until now FF3 is great.

Strange. Never had FF2 crash. Computers are weird.

No problems here. FF3 is very stable on my iMac.

I've got a quandry ;) have only updated to FF3 on separate profile (it hasn't crashed, but then I have no extensions on this profile)

I love FF as my main browser I need to trust it, but something about this update doesn't feel right, I presume this is the price for them becoming a contender.. either that or I'm just too fearty

note: still running FF 2.0.0.15 as my main browser

@suzy et al...

I installed FF3 into a separate directory so as to function alongside FF2 and it's been nothing but misery.

Completely screwed up my FF2 add-ins (ons?) and I can't figure out for the life of me why this should be. I installed DOM inspector 2.0 into FF3 and it's showing up in FF2's list as incompatible.

What the heck, man.

Anybody got any answers? Advice. I'll gladly re-install both if that will do it.

(fearty?)
