why does firefox keep crashing even when I install the updates it wants every other day?
Why does firefox keep crashing? It happens on a regular basis. Considering that it wants me to update every other day, I would assume that you were fixing these problems.
It has gotten as bad as when windows decides to change my setting about windows update, and just automatically installs and restarts my computer without my permission, causing me to lose major amounts of data.
Currently looking for a new browser -- will NEVER install Chrome, and IE sucks. I'm not left with much. So far Firefox has been the least of the evils out there, but I just lost a ton of stuff I had been working on. Time to try something new. We'll see if this actually goes out before it crashes again.
