    Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. Several times over the last month Firefox has crashed while browsing JSF forums. I think it may be certain ads but can't find out because it happens soon after loading a thread.

    Wanted to mention it and see if anyone else was experiencing this. I am running Firefox 1.0.6 on Windows 2000 Pro if it helps.

    edit: I just read a couple of threads and went to the main forum listing and it crashed again. :(

    No problems here. I use firefox 1.0.6 at work on linux and I run the latest beta on windows at home. No crashes so far.

    Be a real man and use IE.

    J/K!!!!! :) I knew that would irritate some of ya. hehehehe

    I use Firefox quite often and it has not crashed on JSF for me before. So it crashes on the main forum page as well as in thread pages? Hrm... Pretty strange. I wonder if anyone else is having this problem.

    I'll try to use FF only for a while and let you know if I experience any problems.

    happens to me!!!

    Usually happens if i'm browsing the forums before bed, and leave firefox open with a bunch of other tabs (my usuals are gmail, school email, ign.com, bb.com, weather.com)

    ...but it wont normally happen while i'm actively using it - just happens sometime in the night while i'm sleeping with my laptop lid closed.
    ...happens about 75% of the time too!

    but ever since i switched to IE7 - no problems.
    IE7 is the shiznit.

    happened in winXp

    Thanks for the replies, all. I guess I'll deal with it or use Opera to browse JSF (I only use IE for Flash games :) ).
