I am using WIN XP on a Dell 8400 machine. I recently upgraded to Firefox 3.6.12. I download the New York Times daily and for the first time ever doing so caused my Firefox to crash with message of Sorry from Firefox and subsequent loss of connectivity with the internet (I have no other browser and Firefox browser was destroyed permanently)
I regained internet connectivity by downloading an old version of Firefox (Mozill Firefox 126.96.36.199) . This version proved to be immune to the New York Times website bug and I was able to use the site with no problem. When I updated this old version to my current Firefox 3.6.12 the crashing problem was re-established.
Something has changed in the current version that makes Firefox susceptible to crashing by the current New York Times Website (accessing the NYT website with the 3.6.12 Firefox before 11/15/2010 did not cause this crashing problem).
Is there an option available in the 3.6.12 Firefox that would protect against CPU overloading?
