I'm not sure what's up with my computer but I just keep running into problems.

OS: Windows Vista Home Premium
AntiVirus: AVG Free
Firewall: Comodo Pro

Starting a few days ago, Firefox (2.0.0.11) started to randomly crash. At random times, all of the pages would freeze and I would be load any page in Firefox. When I close Firefox during these connection freezes, the GUI would completely close and it would seem like Firefox had been completely closed; however, if I looked in Task Manager, I could clearly see firefox.exe still running.

Any ideas on what I should do?

Thanks! :huh:

Save your favorites and then uninstall and reinstall. Then pull your favorites back over.

At least that is the first thing I would do. Being that it is a free program, it is easy enough to do the uninstall and reinstall without worrying about activation or keys or other stuff.

Good luck.
