    I am using an iBook G4 (Tiger).
    Every time I start Firefox, it crashes.

    Anyone experience this same inconvenience?

    [Update:]
    There is one development: I created a new user account on my Mac, logged into it, and then was able to launch Firefox with no problems. So I've been looking through my Library but don't really know what to look for.

    Same thing was happening to my buddy's MBP. He deleted Firefox then re-downloaded and installed and it suddenly worked. Good luck!

    I'm using FireFox 3 for this reply.

    I have a MBP running latest version of Leopard and as you can see it works great. And.... I like it.

    Lucky for you, I still can't even access their site to download it, I keep on getting some error message saying to report a bug to Apple. But when I access it through a proxy it loads fine, has anybody else had this problem?

    I've tried deleting and re-installing multiple times now.

    There is one development: I created a new user account on my Mac, logged into it, and then was able to launch Firefox with no problems. So I've been looking through my Library but don't really know what to look for.

    have to check logs to know what it could be. we can't magically guess.

    But if I were to guess, I would say it is an old plugin that does not work in FF3.
