Question

My browser is crashing when I refresh tabs--and I'm a heavy Firefox user, with 60 tabs open regularly. I've disabled all of my extensions, still happens.

I'm a very, very heavy Firefox user who uses your web browser for my job as a hockey blogger.

I've had significant difficulties with Firefox crashing over the past month. I'm running AdBlock Plus, NoScript, FlashBlock, Image Toolbar, Session Manager, Tabmix Plus and Cookie Controller, and I've never had issues with my extensions before (the plug-ins I use are minimal; Java, Flash, VLC, Silverlight, Quicktime, Adobe Acrobat)...

But the new build has very regularly crashed when I attempt to refresh my tabs, when I am scrolling through image-heavy websites (the background will blink to "gray" and it will soon crash) or when I've got an excessive amount of tabs open.

I've attempted to remove as many plug-ins (including some automatic translators as I deal with multiple languages to cover hockey news) as possible, I've attempted to turn each and every plugin off, I've shut off Sync, I've looked for assistance online and I haven't found any answers to my problems.

I'd prefer to not migrate to Chrome or especially IE, because working 60-80 hours a week, I've found that Firefox is the best tool available with which I can accomplish the tasks necessary to do my job, but it's become very glitch-y and the crashes are frustrating as I often lose information added to my blog and lose chunks of time trying to catch up with myself.

I'm starting to wonder whether having both TabMix Plus and a Session Manager are causing the problems, but while I'm a heavy computer user, I'm no browser expert, so I could use any and all assistance possible in addressing this matter.

That's my story.

Thanks for your time,
