It annoys me. I never had this problem with Firefox 2.
It's always good to see a newer version. Hopefully they'll expand their CSS support in the near future by supporting CSS3 properties, such as text-shadow. Safari is the only major browser that I know supports text-shadow.
Many problems with Firefox can be cured by doing a clean install -- That is, download the installer for the new version, uninstall the old version, then install the new version. Bookmarks, add-ons, and most customizations *will* be preserved unless you use the uninstall option to "completely remove directories."
In many cases, the problem is a left-over from installing Firefox/2.x on top of Firefox/1.x or installing Firefox/3.x over Firefox/2.x, either manually, or using the "auto-update" function.
In other cases, the trouble has to do with incompatible add-ons that somehow slipped through the "add-on compatibility check" -- either recently or in the past. Starting Firefox in "Safe Mode" (i.e. without any add-ons) is a good way to see if this is the cause of the trouble. The "Safe Mode" option is available in the Windows Start menu (see Mozilla Firefox folder), or via command line option in *nix-based systems.
I have been running FF3 since it was beta and now the latest version without a single crash. I am using Windoze XP Pro.
Me too but I'm using Windows XP Pro. :)
Wasn't there a 3.0.2 update within 24-48 of this 3.0.3 update? I could have sworn I saw two updates recently.
I crash IE more than FF. In fact, I don't remember the last time I crashed FF. I think some of you have too many plugins. ;)

Look in Control Panel->Add/Remove programs, and remove all but the most recent version of the JRE. If you've any doubt that you've got the latest runtime, go to [java.com...] and download the most recent update -- Currently Version 6, Update 7.
The plug-in and Web software update checker called "PSI" from Secunia is a quick way to check all of your Web-enabled programs and plug-ins to see if you've got the most recent versions.
It's probably just a conflict with add-ons, but I really am not happy since updating. I'm glad I have Opera.
