Firefox for me has been fine for the past couple of years or so. Then all of a sudden about 5 months ago, everytime i would use Firefox it would crash after browsing for about 1 minute. I uninstalled and reinstalled numerous times to no avail. I then got sick of the problem and then used IE till now. However, i heard about Firefox 4 and thought maybe this would fix it. Unfortunately, the same problem occurred! I then heard about being able to start Firefox with add-ons disabled to find any sources of problems, and i've found that the cause if Flash! It is the newest version and always has been, so i don't know what i can do, since Flash is important for most websites nowadays!?

I think we have to try and eliminate malware on your system as the source of the problem.

Could you please download the freebie version of Malwarebytes from http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free and then run a full system scan.

I am delighted to say that the problem no longer exists after the removing malware from my system!!!
