    Got the computer a couple days ago and firefox has been crashing a lot. I cleared the history and cache but it still crashes.

    I did a quick search and it seems like a lot of people are having this issue and there's no solution for it. I was doing something very important and this has been pissing me off.

    If I don't find a fix I'm going to return this POS as the only web browser I like is Firefox. It's rarely ever given me any problems on windows based computers.

    What are you hoping to accomplish by posting here then? :)
    I'm with you though, Firefox is the only browser I'll use.

    Yeah, because complaining about it on a forum, providing no information other than "it crashes and you cleared the cache and history", and threatening to return your "POS" is something that is going to make us sympathize. God forbid you submit a bug report to Mozilla, or do something to solve your problem instead of whining about it.

    Safari has a better UI and is faster than Firefox anyway.

    Well, I guess the UI is personal preference, but it is definitely faster and has been tested to be faster. Safari 4 anyway.

    Try re-installing FF maybe?

    And calm down sweetheart, you seem a little angry!

    Someone is taking their windows habit onto another os.

    There are better ways to do things. What you are used to isn't necesarily the best way to do things.

    I don't know about FF crashing. I would like to tell you what I was told on another forum. I to was a Windows man for a lot of years. I got an imac about 3 weeks ago. I asked a few questions and someone said to me "Don't keep saying you what you did in windows. Act like you are a new to the computer and you are just learning". This has worked for me.
