Same here. I wonder if the operating system has anything to do with it? I'm running XP (fully updated).

I just checked for FF updates, and there was a caution to update your plug-ins and extensions if you upgrade to 3.5.2., or you may lose some functionality. I think I'll pass on the update for a while.
If it ain't broke...

Mac Operating System and Firefox and Java

My Firefox 3.0.13 works fine on my Mac OS 10.5.7...
But I now get daily reminders that Firefox 3.5 is available for download.
I have also learned that Firefox will no longer support my version with security updates after the end of the year.

Before I get the latest version of Firefox, I will install the newly released Mac OS 10.6 Snow Leopard.

While checking "Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard Compatibility List", I saw this note: "Java Note: After Snow Leopard installation, only Java SE 6 remains and is used for all applications and applets; previous Java versions (which were present in Leopard and Tiger) are gone. This may cause issues with Java apps/applets that don't work correctly with Java SE 6: These will need to be updated to work with Snow Leopard."

Make sure you have the latest version of Java loaded. Download Free Java Software - Sun Microsystems
If you are running skype, uninstall the skype plugin for FF. Skype will still work. This was actually causing slowdowns on every site for me and I agree it is annoying.

This fixed my issues - good luck with yours
After following Janet's suggestion and downloading Java, I have noticed a significant increase in speed in using the forum pages. Thanks for your help, Janet!!!

I also tried updating my Java, but it didn't help the crashing. It would only update to ver.15 not 16. I don't know why. Oh well, I'm trying Lunascape for now. Will report on how well it works.

Thumbs up

I'd like to second the thanks for the Lunascape referral. I downloaded and set it up last night, and it's a great browser. And, it looks good next to my Firefox, Opera, and IE.

In case y'all haven't heard, Firefox 3.5.3 was released yesterday. Might fix some issues? I looked at the bug-fixes on line and naturally couldn't translate most of the Geekenese into English. They did fix several "crash issues" in this release.
