I am using two different computers and I have the same problem on both. After using Firefox for about 20 minutes my website will suddenly freeze up and become white with a loading circle then I will get notication that firefox stopped responding and had to close. This will happen on any website I visit so I believe it is a problem with the most recent version of firefox causing the websites to crash. I have looked on your forums for help and none of the suggestions there (update firefox, update plugins java, flash, shockwave ect), update video drivers ect seemed to help.

Please tell me what information you need and what steps I need to do to resolve this. It is very flustering when I have to close everything out and start over because Firefox keeps crashing all the time.

Browser Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:38.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/38.0

OS: Windows 7 Browser
