I'm not sure if it's an issue with Firefox or with this site, but either way, my browser frequently crashes while on this site, usually the forums. I've been experiencing it on two different computers, both running Firefox and Adblock Plus as the only addon. Is this a known issue, or is it just some bizarre coincidence that only affects my computers somehow?

Do a check for any adware/spyware, as I have no issues and have been using Firefox for years. Also, does it happen with IE at all?

I'm not sure, as I never use IE. I run Spybot/Ad-aware a couple times a week, and I actually just bought this computer Wednesday and this site is crashing already on it. It doesn't happen on other websites, which is the weird thing.

Hasn't happened to me once since I've been on this site, and I've been using FireFox for two years. It's something on your end, mate.

I use Firefox and this has never happened to me. Try using IE or another browser to see if that crashes as well.

Buddy i think you may have some type of virus. I've been using firefox ever since i signed up and it hasn't crashed once. You should run a virus checker or something.

I have nod32 and scan once a month or so. This problem also occurs on two different PCs as I mentioned, one being less than a week old. I'm thinking it may be some sort of issue with Adblock, I'll try disabling it on this site and see if it helps.

Not firefox. Not adblock. I use both on no less than three computers with this site. You've got some kind of virus, adware, spyware, etc. Do some more scans and find the issue, it isn't on our end.

I, as well, use Firefox, and I don't have any problems at all.

I'm using FireFox right now and I don't seem to be having any problems. You may have a dodgy computer, where did you buy it from?

One's an Alienware from a couple years ago, the other is an HP, both brand new ordered from the companies. No viruses or spyware, I've tested with multiple scanners. Nod32 and Avast as far as viruses go, Ad-aware and Spybot for spyware.

maybe everyone else has a virus that makes firefox work with this site... that would be the other possibility....

I just scanned and I do have that. Can't believe I didn't think of it before!
