Firefox freezes everytime I try to clear the search history.
It appears I somehow got upgraded to the newest version of firefox. And everytime I try to clear the history it freezes. Then I get errors... Something about a script... or the program will just say "not responding"
Can this be fixed? If not can I download an older version which worked?
Firefox/Tools > Options > Privacy > Firefox will: "Use custom settings for history" > [X] Clear history when Firefox closes > Settings
Firefox > History > Clear Recent History or Tools > Clear Recent History
Try to exclude the cookies to see if that helps.
If you use Delete browsing, search and download history on Firefox to clear the cookies then Firefox also tries to clear the cookies from plugins like Flash and starts a plugin-container process for each plugin and possibly for each cookie (?) and that can add extra time if there are a lot of cookies to remove and also can cause an unresponsive script error to appear.

Very easy solution. When the clear recent history box appears, don't clear everything at once. I.E just clear browsing history first, then return to clear history and clear cookies and cache .....................
