I have to use Chrome because Firefox 9.0.1 crashes every time I open it on my WinVista PC. I love Firefox and really miss it. Help

more options

I have had few problems with Firefox which I have been using since I first had a computer...just a few minor things which were easily sorted out. Since I downloaded Firefox 9.0.1, I have about 3 to 5 minutes to enjoy it before it crashes. I restart over and over and the same thing happens. Sadly, I am forced to use Chrome for now and want my Firefox back. I hope you can help.

After all the trouble I have been having with crashes, I started Firefox today and disabled all my addons and it worked fine. It was an addon problem so I will add them back one at a time until I see which one. Thanks for your help.....Pat

This is a few of the 52 crashes on the about:crashes page. I gave up trying to send all the list because of multiple crashes. It is way too irritating...I will go back to an older version if I can and wait for the next update. I don't know how this suddenly got so hard to use????

The crash IDs that you posted are all Firefox 7 crash reports from last year, so the may not be relevant anymore. Only post the crash id of recent crashes of the current Firefox release.
