Firefox Issues

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I've been having issues with Firefox 3 and earlier versions. I'm not sure what else to do. The problem is that browser sticks or lags every few minutes- if that makes sense. I've tried uninstalling and clean installs but I'm getting the same problem. I don't have the problem with Opera but I prefer to use Firefox. I also get a lot of crashes and unresponsive scripts. Any suggestions about what to try?

There was a recent update. But if you're getting bugs you really need to pass those on to the mozilla team, they need to know.

This is going to sound strange, Bryan, but it's worth a try. Uninstall whatever version you now have, and then install the latest version in a foreign language. Use it for a day or two, add bookmarks, etc., and then install the latest English version without uninstalling the foreign-language version. It will replace the latter while keeping the bookmarks, add-ons, skins, etc..

My husband was having trouble with FF "sticking" after the latest update, and doing the above solved the problem. He has XP, and I uninstalled the latest English version, installed the German one, and then went back and installed the English one after two days.

I'm fully updated with Firefox. I'll give that a try and see how it goes.

No joy. I ran with the German version for about a week, then installed the English version over top of it.

Weird. I'm not sure why it worked on DH's computer. You must have a software conflict. I have the same trouble with Opera, and the only thing they could tell me was that it was probably incompatible with some software on my computer.

When I run Firefox in safe mode it runs just fine. No crashes, no freezing. I wonder if it may be a problem with one of the plug-ins when running in normal mode.

Did you recently update your Java to update 10 that caused me a bunch of problems.

No, I think the most recent upgrade I had for Java was six or seven.

I had to go back to 3.0.6 because of all the issues I had with recent upgrades.

What I did was go to and got the latest beta version of Foxfire and I've been using it today with no problems.
