Firefox crashes when using google search

Posted

Help! Firefox crashes 100% of time when I use either the search bar at the top of the window (I use google as my default search engine) or if I go directly to google.com and execute a search. Firefox automatically restores all the windows when restarting. So I also tried restarting without restoring the last session and still get the crash

I don't know how to get that Crash ID, but I did copy the crash report and paste in the troubleshooting info box below.

I'm using Firefox 7.0.1 on an iMac with Lion OSX 10.7.2

What's happening here?

Thanks, Vince.

So, I tried it again, but this time, I restarted the Mac and tried using Google again. Same problem. Firefox totally aborts. This time, I'm posting the crash report here.

Oh, one more tidbit. I don't get this problem with Safari. In that browser, I also have google as the default search engine. So when I search up in the search bar at the top or if I go to google.com, Safari does NOT crash. So this problem seems peculiar to Firefox.

Vince.

Bump, is there anyone out there that can help with my problem?
