    This is the weirdest thing, Firefox sometimes crashes when I press :apple:+Q to quit it. I cannot figure out what is causing the crashes, but it occurs most frequently on the site http://127.0.0.1:6xxxx/, where xxxx are 4 digits I can't seem to remember (KoLmafia's relay browser).

    Most of the time it does not crash. The few times it does, it always does it on quit.

    Im sure you would. safari beta is so much stable on your machine.
    crash can be caused by many things. if it happens on certain websites, it might be related to the site content.

    In the mean time, it might worth trying a new profile for 3.1 beta. just to see if the problem still exist. Its always difficult to analyze these problem when the reproducibility is not great.

    PS, why still using beta 2?

    I meant beta 3, not 2... a goof on my part. I will try a new profile.
