Firefox 3.6.6 crashing

So I'm using Firefox version 3.6.6 and the Flash plugin version 10.1.53.64, and about a minute or two into every Firefox session the entire browser crashes and gives me the option to send a report and either restart or quit Firefox.

I know what I'm doing and thus don't need the kid-glove responses I've seen in some other threads about this, the problem is not on my end, it's with the software. No problems were occuring before Firefox 3.6.6. Please tell me how to fix the problem you created, ASAP.

Same problem - the moment I load a page of any complexity, it's goodbye.

This browser went from the most stable to the biggest piece of shit since 3.6.4. I crash every 3 mins no matter what I am doing, even if it is in safe mode.

I have the same problem.. I installed 3.6.6 and it crashes every time. Tried to install 3.6.4 again and now it crashes, tried with 3.5.5 and same thing. If I open FF in safe mode, it will display a window, but then crashes immediately.

Mac OS 10.6.4

I'm desperate to get it working again as I need FireBug.

Update from prior release to FF 3.6.6 last night. Also updated Flash. Now most pages from major sites cause FF to freeze forcing me to kill the session.

Mine Firefox 3.6.6 32 bits (Windows Vista) is also crashing all the time. Here is the report:

I have the same issue, running on Windows 7. Disabling the Flash plugin allows me to at least use the browser without crashing, for those of you who are looking to do that. (In the few seconds you have it open, go to tools, manage add-ons, plugins, find the flash player and disable.) I find it strange that 3.6.6 is advertised to fix crash problems with plugins (which I did not have previously), but with this update and, as "strongly recommended" by Mozilla, the Adobe Flash update, it now crashes.

I would like to withdraw my previous post: "Apparent fix for me

See "Duplicate Session Restore files" "

I am now testing the disabling of flash

Okay, here's what worked for me. For one thing, although I thought I had successfully updated to 3.6.6, when I went to the Help menu it still showed me running 3.6.4. Odd. Apparently something was blocking the update patch from working. I eventually completely uninstalled Firefox, downloaded and installed the newest version clean, and restarted my computer. Now it works, even with the plugin. A strange workaround, but not terribly difficult.

And I do have 3.6.6. Nothing I've tried has worked including a complete uninstall and clean install thus losing all my info. Still crashes. Crashes in safe mode,crashes with all add-ons disabled,crashes with the plugins disabled

As mentioned before FF 3.6.6 crashes with no obvious reason. I got the problem since version 3.6.4 (the first 'crash-free' Version). It must be a problem with the 10.1 Flash Plugin, because on my laptop, 3.6.6 runs without a crash on the same sites.

After a short support chat, I could figure out that the AddOn 'FireTorrent' can be a reason to crash FF 3.6.6 with Flash 10.1

Thanks Jan!

Same issue running on WinXP Pro with FF 3.6.6, Flash 10.1 and FireTorrent 2.0.1.

Disable FireTorrent all is good, re-enable and a known page will lock the browser every time without fail. Bye bye FireTorrent.
