I've been experiencing programs crashing a lot. Firefox when I'm trying to load a video on hulu or networks website. Usually if I have another tab open at the same time. It just did it with 1 other tab open only so its not like it is an excessive amount of tabs open. Microsoft word crashed on my in the middle of studying for an exam this morning. I was trying to paste a large amount of text and it just crashed. I know that could just be microsoft crap but it happens in other programs as well. Occasionally, especially during finals, I will have multiple ppt and word/pages files open along with multiple tabs in firefox and pdf files. Here are my macbooks specs: Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache (per processor): 4 MB Memory: 1 GB Bus Speed: 667 MHz Boot ROM Version: MB21.00A5.B07 SMC Version: 1.17f0 Running Tiger still! 160 gb harddrive that still has plenty of room left on it. Could I be experiencing these crashes because my macbook is 3 years old or something?
