I’ve been a devoted Firefox user for many years, but it may be a time for a change. I had always found Firefox to provide a relatively stable and bug-free browser. No longer. With the latest updates (v3.6.8), my Firefox crashes and freezes-up all the time. This may have something to do with the way I use it – I like to keep lots of tabs open – but this is not new. I’ve used browsers this way ever since I discovered tabs. My impression is the new bugginess has something to do with plug-incontainer.exe, but this was supposed to make Firefox crash less often, not grind it to a halt.
I’m not eager to change browsers — old habits die hard — but unless Firefox creates a fix soon, it will count me among its former users. The only question will be which browser to use instead. Explorer? Chrome? Safari? Is there a quick fix for Firefox? Or is one of the other browsers that much better?
