I started using Firefox last year with a variety of extensions and totally fell in love with tabbed browsing. However, since installing the latest version 1.5 I have had nothing but problems. The major is with Firefox crashing when I have multiple tabs open - this is driving me crazy as I often work on various online projects at once. Does anyone know why this is happening or has anyone else been having problems? :tazz:

I ran into the same problems when i installed 1.5 too, my problem was when i closed firefox my laptop would restart
as much as i liked the tabbed browsing i ended up uninstalling it.

Does it crash if you use safe mode?

Click on the START button>Programs>Mozilla Firefox>Mozilla Firefox (Safe Mode)

i haven't tried running it in safe mode - i'll try that!

i did uninstall firefox and all extensions and reinstall to see if I am still getting problems cos I thought it might be something to do wtih the extensions being none compatible with the new version. I guess I will just keep an eye on it and wait for them to sort out the glitch!

thanks for your comments - I just wanted ot know I wasn't alone. :tazz:
