    Lol.

    Opera is better though. So he's fucking right. Why not help people change to a better browser?

    how good is Opera though (besides performance)? the only reason i tend to recommend FF stems from its Adblock/G.Filter plugin. Does Opera support similar features?

    Yeah, you can easily block Ads. I don't know where the list for my blocked content is though. It's probably in the Opera thread.

    A quick google can get you a block content list too.

    Yeah, opera does everything that firefox does with most of the stuff that requires plugins being built in etc plah. Read the thread or search the opera thread.

    Whenever this error occurs and the repair is carried out, FF appears to revert back to a fresh install - all bookmarks deleted, no history details and when the browser is opened, I'm greeted by the 'Welcome to FF' page rather than my homepage.

    I've not had the issue at shutdown but in the last 6 months or so I have had FF revert back to a fresh install twice which was annoying.

    In the 'Content' subsection of the advanced preferences. There's a button labelled 'Blocked Content' which lets you manage the list (although the editor is rather basic and clunky at the moment).

    Heh, I worded that a bit weirdly. I meant I don't remember where I got the list from.

    I know how to do the rest, but cheers anyway!

    Righty. I have stopped using Firefox due to problems with it not playing Flash video when I have multiple tabs open. Have downloaded Opera and its fine and dandy.

    Firefox has been doing the whole crash thing with me frequently.

    Luckily when you end task, most of the time it remembers what you where on.

    I'd go over to Opera (again). But Firefox is familiar :/

    Also; using Opera on my mums mac and it's almost as bad (on the mac though FF just randomly crashes).

    Firefox was familiar (been using it for a few years). However, it really isnt that much different. Give it a go...import your bookmarks and see what you think.

    I do try to move over now and then. I do like the dialling page and some other stuff.

    It just doesent feel the same.

    Firefox for PC, Opera for phone. My mantra.

    The Linux version of Firefox is terrible. Even worse is that a beta version of it comes installed by default with Ubuntu. It crashes more than an amusing comparison.

    What the hell is going on with firefox lately

    Leave it on for an hour or three and the stupid thing becomes unresponsive and takes an age to load pages.

    Shut it down and it's back to normal.

    This is only since the last update.

    FFS I am considering going back to IE :(

    Firefox has a memory leak bug. It's been reported, but they're rolling out Firefox 3 soon.

    The memory leak isn't severe, but my RAM usage goes from 45% to 60% if Firefox has been running for a long time

    It seems the bug hasn't been fixed. Mine is currently using just over 100,000K of memory and earlier was using just over 150,000K.

    If you can read this, you don't need glasses.

    Anyone else finding that Firefox 3.6.6 is crashing all over the place - simply dumping out and giving a little error/reporting box. has happened with Youtube, EG, etc., loads of websites, most likely with Flash, although I downloaded the recommended Flash update. No problems with IE.

    Yep. It now seems incapable of opening an acrobat file in anything other than a full window (which has made me have to open all acrobat files as a right click 'open in new tab' rather than just click on them). It's also dumped me out about four times in 24 hours, and I've had to do two restarts. May be a conflict with anti-spyware/anti-virus packages.

    I love the way that when you want to download an update for flash now, you download the downloader. Thanks, Adobe. No, really.

    Been having exactly the same, Red Moose. Just applied the latest update though and we'll see if that fixes it.

    Dead useful for me, who installs OSes quite a lot. Always have the correct version and don't have to download via a browser.

    Indeed, that was deeply irksome.

    That's some definition of 'everyone' you've got there. Everyone = 14%?

    chrome is a fast browser, though it takes about 80mb for each tab on my machine - very much the memory hog.
