    firefox just shuts off showing an error while I am browsing. Does this happen to anybody else? What can i do about it?

    I am not going back to IE.

    What version of firefox are you running? Does it happen in the same place everytime? Do you have a ton of extensions installed?

    Mine does that every now and then when trying to log on to GMAIL. dont know why, but it gets annoying. I have gmail notifier, bugmenot, foxamp or whatever its called and thats it installed

    I don't use Firefox, but how about posting what the error says? You can usually google stuff like that and easily find answers.

    ok for whoever asked what the specific error was:
    firefox.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close.

    Please tell microsoft about this problem...

    This is the error signature:
    appname: firefox.exe
    Appver: 1.0.70
    Modname: firefox.exe
    ModVer: 1.0.7.0
    Offfset: 00586165

    It closed when I was trying to open one of the threads in OT. Sometimes it closes in Myspace too. :dunno:

    You might try uninstalling it and reinstalling it, that could take care of the problem.... also I'd make sure the software and all of its updates are recently updated.

    yeah it is! i still have thsi problem. I downloaded the new firefox version and installed it. no dice.

    When i use this on offtopic and myspace.... this happens. It also happens when i hit the back button on the browser. Any more suggestions?

    also, scroll up for the specific error.

    then again, you might try uninstalling it, and installing opera, that WILL take care of the problem.
