Firefox 35.0 is crashing when adding images, can I revert to a previous version of FF? I've tried all of the suggested remedial things.
This problem happened since the first of the year. I have a Radeon 7000 graphics card, and am running XP Service Pack 3. I also have a friend who is having this same problem except her browser is crashing opening files. I have even uninstalled a printer which I added during that period of time and the associated software, but it didn't solve the problem.
