Firefox crashes when I try to load babycenter.com


Anytime I try to go to pages on babycenter.com (except for the forums, which seem to work fine), Firefox freezes and crashes. I have tried removing the Firefox application, removing all of my user data, and reinstalling, and the problem is still occurring. I use this website a lot and will have to switch to a different browser if this problem cannot be resolved. What can I do to get Firefox to load without crashing?

We're sorry to hear that your Firefox seems to be crashing. Please perform the following steps to give us a crash report ID that helps us find out more about the cause of the crash.

  1. Enter about:crashes in the Firefox location bar (that's where you enter your website names) and press Enter. You should now see a list of submitted crash reports.
  2. Copy the most recent 5 report IDs that you see in the crash report window and paste them into your forum response.

Thanks in advance for your help!

There is only one because I deleted and reinstalled Firefox this morning, after experiencing dozens of crashes with the previous installation. They all occur when I load the babycenter website. It does not happen on Safari or Google Chrome.

(If needed, I can try to load babycenter again and create more crashes.)

Type about:addons into your address bar, press Enter. Then go to Plugins. Disable Google Earth, then restart your PC. Does this help?

Mine crashes too. On this site and a few other as well. I routinely have to restart and don't submit a quarter of the reports I should. Here is my report:

I have the same problem and found a fix that worked:

Go into your Firefox Preferences, select Applications, and change all of the "Quick TIme Player Document (video...)" to read "Quick Time Player (default)" instead of "Quick Time Plug-In 7.6.6".

I'm running Quick Time 19.0.2 on a Mac with OS 10.6.8 and it solved the problem for me. I don't really know what any of this means so hopefully it won't cause other problems somewhere, but at least BBC is fixed.
