Firefox is freezing alot - anyone else?

It seems over the past week that my copies of Firefox 1.06 are freezing up a lot.. I'm running it on 2 seperate computers. Anyone else having any issues?

What extension have you installed. The only time I ever had problems with firefox -- it was caused by an extension I installed. I uninstalled it -- then no problems.

Firefox only freezes for me if I go to DVDtalk with it.

Of course, the browser is useless with extensions so no point in uninstalling them.

I haven't had any problems either. You might want to revert to 1.0.5 and see if that clears up your issues. You can download the PC version here:

I've never had FF freeze up (since Beta that is), but for the last week it has been crashing abruptly whenever I try to open a page with embedded video. It's probably an extension I have added/upgraded, but I'm not going to go thru them all and find it. For now I'm just opening those pages in IE and waiting for 1.5 to be released. Then I'm going to do a complete reinstall of FF.

FF is nowhere near 1.5. The current version is 1.0.6. The link I posted above is for the previous version, 1.0.5.

FF 1.5 (codename Deer Park) is in it's second alpha release, with the first beta expected this month. It is actually the release that would have been 1.1, but they "scrapped" 1.1 a few months ago and decided on 1.5 instead for some reason.

Of course you may know all this, if by "nowhere near" you just ment several months.

I hate to say it, but the biggest recurring problem I have with Firefox 1.06 is in the DVDTalk forums when I try to go from a topic to the actual threads. All of a sudden it just wants to close because of an unexpected error. When I reopen, it's okay.
Why? Got me.

1.5 is more stable for me so far. DVD Talk no longer crashes like it used to with 1.0 -1.0.6.

I rarely have any problems with firefox. The few I have are nothing compared to the problems I had with IE.

Firefox does freezes on me quite often - especially when I'm on DVD Talk and pressing "back" button on my mouse.
