I updated firefox as was "suggested." I was happy and had NO PROBLEMS with the older version. now whenever I try to open a new tab, a new page, or refresh an old page, this version crashes. REPEATEDLY. It is very frustrating and irritating. I do not like IE and do not want to change over to it, but if your "upgrade" keeps crashing, I don't really have any other alternative.

It also opens 2 tabs when I click on a news story. it crashes when i control c or control v. it crashes when i back space.

I bet I've already sent 30 crash reports since I updated. What the F... are you doing with them???

PLEASE FIX THIS UPDATED VERSION (19.0). At the current time, it is a piece of crap!!

Chosen solution

I did all the suggested "remedies" too. Nothing worked. So I went to my external HD back up to copy and reinstall the old version back on to my computer HD. All of the problems stopped -- immediately! I won't be updating again.
