I recently Installed it on my computer last night , and had it crash on me 6 times when trying to surf the web. Has anybody else had this problem?

I had to revert back to firefox 1.5.0.7 because it just kept crashing.

wait for the first update i think.

Wrong section. And it's running fine for me. Maybe the additional spell checking is too taxing on your system :p

Spell check??

There is no software section buddy? , and why is the Windows Vista Software section in CPU's for?

Okay, fine, I did patronize you a little.

I'm just saying, it wasn't tucked away in a little corner, it's on the main Forumz page, with over 1/2 million posts!

I think he's having problems with the SETI client buit into firefox II. It didn't detect any intelligent life in front of the screen so put the PC into power-saving mode.

Its working better than my explorer right now. snappier web pages and faster flash loads.. And thats coming from an explorer user.. i still like google toolbar better for explorer than firefox.. and thats also coming from a guy that swore i'd never get a toolbar but getting my bookmarks and old searches (never thought that would be useful) from anywhere rocks!

Firefox 2.0 is running like a breeze... to be honest, I've noticed all the lovely tweaks, and can say I'm satisfied with it. If its screwing up with only you, maybe your pc is at fault? And are you to recommend IE7? Sure, its improved on IE6, but still! IE?! I think I'll stick to my Firefox....

Even though this is in the wrong area, oh well, what's done is done...
You did help me once or twice in the past with mobo issues. I have several desktops (7 of them), not including my two laptops, everything from Win2000 Pro to XP Home Ed. to Win XP Pro. All my systems including the ones at work (the oldest crap with the Win 2000 Pro OS), installed Firefox 2.0 RC1, RC2 & the actual release flawlessly. You might have some really screwed up registry issues. Firefox works. any version is better than I.E. Version XXX.
The following should be done at your own risk & if you have a good reliable backup of your system, cuz you never know when s-h-i-t will hit the fan during a procedure like what I'm about to explain. C.Y.O.A.

My suggestion would be:
(1) to first uninstall Firefox completely,
(2) delete any traces left behind, usually left in the E:\Documents and Settings\Heyhey\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox, directory/folder
(3) reboot,
(4) then get a F-R-E-E copy of SpyBot's S&D at http://www.spybot.info/en/mirrors/index.html,
(5) get it's updates,
(6) let Spybot make a registry backup point right after the installation,
(7) run Spybot it in default mode,
(8) Click on the Mode menu option, set Spybot to use the Advanced mode features
(9) Click on the System Internals option which will scan your registry for bogus & non-existent apps & DLL's pointing to nowhere.
(10) Reboot
(11) Try installing Firefox v2.0 again.
(12) make a donation to Spybot if all this works
(13) if all this fails I hope you have some gasoline & tar, spread it even over your Win-OS install,
(14) (I hate this part 7 the next 7-12 hrs) Worst case scenario would be to Start a fresh Windows OS install

Good Luck.

its just sometimes I feel like im talking to a whole lot of immature under 14 yrold pimple faced geeks. Sorry for being such a prick , but theres alot of people on this forum that have problems.

Like i ask if anyone is having problems with the new firefox , and all i get is people calling me unintelligent. I mean im really sorry if I dont know absolutely eevrything about computers like dasickninja and alcoholism , but i am learning slowly.

Take it with a grain of salt & ignore 'em & keep asking your questions. When you post something in the wrong place, just apologize & move on.
I was taught that there's no such thing as a stupid question in the wrong place, just stupid people in the right places.

These guys/gals just want to keep a little order in this chaotic world of puters that we live in, is all.
