    Firefox random crashes.


    Just so I know I'm not going crazy.

    Am I the only one getting random Firefox 4.0.1 crashes? Most of the time it works fine, and then random sites (Ironically, mainly Windows 8 and Mozilla sites) cause it to crash, and it can't be recovered until I get rid of those tabs.

    No ,you're not crazy! Yes ,it's crashing on Mozilla sites ,but I don't know on which Windows 8 site You mean ,'cause I've had no problem with them so far.

    Is this in a Windows 8 build, or in Windows 7?

    Yep, FF does crash out when trying to access a Mozilla site from within W8 7955. Ironically, you can access the Mozilla site without any problems from within IE9 (and the platform preview of IE10) under the same OS without any problems. FF does also crash occasionally with other sites, but you can guarantee 100% that it will crash when attempting to access a Mozilla one. Go figure. I can only assume that this issue is caused by W8 still being in pre-Beta, and that FF isn't 100% compatible yet.

    Sorry, yeah it's Windows 8, build 7955, Seven is working fine.

    Glad to know it's not just me then. The Windows 8 site I'm specifically having problems with is Windows 8 News

    It's specific to Firefox it seems, Chrome Opera and Ie9 are all working fine, no problems at all. (Apart from a slight hiccup with Chrome's built in Flash, but that was easily fixed)

    :ROFLMAO: Ironically just after I read that,I clicked the link and it loaded. I wonder if it has something to do with the ads on their site, maybe it's another URL that's causing the crashes. Weird.
