Firefox help

    OK, so I've been one of the bigger supporters of Firefox on here. But Firefox 3 BLOWS. It crashes on me 5-6 times a night. And I never have more than three tabs open at home (gmail, this, and whatever links I click on).

    2much, I'm looking mostly at you. Any idea when they'll fix this or send out a 4? Because right now I'm about to give up and shop around for a new browser.

    Dump it and get Chrome.

    FFX 3 works fine for me.. do you update it? Current version is 3.0.4

    Yep, I'm on 3.0.4. I've been online less than an hour and a half total today and it's crashed twice. Just completely shuts down. I send a report, then I reopen it with the restore button.

    Annoying as all hell. I saw something online the other day where people said it was more prone to crash, but this is ridiculous.

    Mine will crash everyonce in a while, but nowhere near the amount Netscape did.

    Holy crap, I haven't used Netscape in 10 years :D

    I gave up on IE because of the spyware. I have Avant, but I use it because it's an IE mirror so I can watch my Netflix movies on it.

    Does Netscape still put out new versions?

    FF has been fine for me. I have heard great things about Chrome, though.

    Nope.. Netscape stopped several months ago.. I think the last one was 9.1...

    I downloaded Chrome when it first came out. Wasn't enamored.

    I think your computer problems have less to do with your browser and more to do with something else. What that something else is, I have no clue. It could be a clogged-up hard drive, not enough RAM, Vista, who knows. You may want to get a computer geek to look at it.

    I don't have vista, and it happens on my work computer too.

    But my home computer is a 5-year-old desktop. So I can't just take it somewhere that easily.

    Eh, screw it. I don't have the problem with Avant, or IE at work. I'll deal, I guess. :(

    I used to love Firefox, but it kept crashing on my home computer (it works fine on my work computer, and I still use it there), so I dumped it for Chrome. All I miss are the add-ons, which supposedly are coming.
