Browser wars: Firefox vs. Chrome

Postby wrveres » Thu Feb 03, 2011 9:58 am

i updated firefox the other day, and now it crashes all the time. I went to firefox's help section followed all their help instructions, and it didn't help. I turned off no scripts, and anything else i could think of, and still i cant click on a CNN link or rotoworld, among many others site, without a crash.

any clue?

i'd hate to quit using i firefox. i love it, but this is unacceptable.

Have you disabled all the plugins to see if maybe one of them has gone haywire?
