Firefox crashes for no apparent reason, in the middle of composing email, while browsing, or even when left unattended. What's up with that?

While I was typing this question, Firefox crashed. Twice. How’s that for irony?

Anyhow, I have allowed Firefox to upgrade to the newest, coolest version whenever there was one to install, even when I found the new look and arrangement annoying or there were bells and whistles I didn’t want and sometimes hated. Then it started crashing all the time. I reverted to Firefox 3.6.19, which was the last version I really liked, but it, too, kept crashing. No particular site, no identifiable process. Even in the middle of composing an email or when the computer is unattended for a few minutes.

I have disabled each of my few add-ons, one at a time, and it still crashed. I then re-enabled each of them. Same thing. I have reinstalled Flashplayer and Shockwave. Still no joy.

And I’m typing this in Word so I can paste it into the question box, since twice I have lost what I typed because Firefox crashed.

for the last several versions in 3.x, even in safe mode, this problem has been occurring. the graphics for the mozilla add-on webpages are not appearing in mozilla ff....but are appearing in IE. furthermore, the text is appearing down the left side of the window, rather than across. so one has to scroll and scroll and scroll to read. i have gone to mozillazine and used many of the suggestions, even checking all the places mentioned in about:config i like looking for add-ons that might make my internet experience even better but it is so frustrating having this happen. i tried going to 4 but my beloved toolbar buttons were not compatible so i went back to 3.x. michael b, who created toolbar buttons, says he's too busy to make them compatible with new ff versions. and because of the graphics problem i can't even find another add-on that might offer similar features. HELP

I have been trying to bookmark the following site, http://www.indianarailwaymuseum.org/index.html, but when I hit 'Bookmark This Page' instead I get " Remove Bookmark". If I go to Bookmarks > Bookmarks Toolbar > Bookmarks Menu and Click I can find in amongst some old deleted and present bookmarks this site, but I want to put it in my wife's bookmark folder so she can easily access it. One of my bookmark folders is one just for my wife's stuff. Is the site in some way not letting me bookmark it?
