ARGH. Firefox + Win2K/XP problems? →
[More:]Firfox seems to be spuriously ass-raping my Win2K stability. It'll either do a total freeze or spontaneously reboot, never with a chance to open task manager and manually kill the process.
My GFs comp seems to be having similar (but lesser) problems in XP. I believe we both have the StumbleUpon toolbar. I also have the DownThemAll extension and that's about it. I'm having zero problems on a different machine with a nearly identical Win2K + Firefox 0.7 configuration, with identical plugins/extensions.
This machine didn't have any problems until I upgraded from Firefox 0.98 or 0.96 or (something like that) to 1.0.6.
The profiles are frequently corrupting or freezing up - where choosing or creating an alternate profile helps for a little while.
Flash, Java or complex DHTML/XML stuff seems to make it crash sooner and/or more often.
I don't really want to roll back to pre 1.0 for security reasons, but if this keeps happening I think I might have to just to test it out.
What would you do?
