Can someone please suggest why Firefox continues to crash when attempting to download a file. It happens every time, without fail.

  • I have deleted the downloads.sqlite file (more than once) to no effect.
  • I have disabled AVG firewall etc - to no effect.
  • Firefox originally crashed on the latest version, so I downgraded to v5.0.1 - to no effect. I have checked using AVG and an online virus/spyware checker and can find no infection.
  • I have submitted 17 crash reports since 29 September, but when I right click on any of them, and try to open in a new tab, I receive the following messge: “We couldn't find the OOID you're after. If you recently submitted this crash, it may still be in the queue.”

My OS is Vista Business 32 bit. Thank you for any help & advice.

I am running Firefox 5.0.1 on Windows XP. DSL. Frequently, it uses a ton of memory, so I exit. However, it continues to run under 'processes' in the Windows taskbar, not releasing memory. Often, I have to actually turn off the pc. Turning it back on, I try to open Firefox and sometimes I have to try more than once. It works fine for a while, sometimes a whole day!! Yippee. I have installed and uninstalled. I have run every diagnostic I have, even a disk defrag without success. I have updated all my plugins. What else can I do?

I prefer helvetica font, so I have changed the fonts for webpages in Firefox settings to it (changed all fonts to helvetica, unchecked "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above"). However, some webpages still display in what I presume is the seriff font under proportional font. It would be nice to get all webpages to display in helvetica font but it seems that firefox only allows seriff or sans seriff for the proportional font. How can I make all the webpages display with the same font: helvetica? Please do not tell me how to change the other fonts; once again, I have done that. I only want to know if and how the PROPORTIONAL FONT can be changed or disabled, so that all webpages display in helvetica.
