My new handy attractive FF 3 has surprised me. It crashed suddenly without any reason. Just crashed and opened bug reporting window. And even hasn't restore my session after clicking Restore button... It's so sad :thumbsup: . Am I the one having this problem? Does your FF 3 work properly?

Everything crashes sometimes. I got a lot of crashes out of Firefox 2. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the new addons caused crashes, seeing as Firefox 3 is fresh out of beta.

Mine has crashed once so far,

I'm sure the crashes will be fixed soon enough.

Mine crashes in a weird way:

It doesn't crash, but whenever I close FF3, the "Mozilla Crash Report Tool" appears anyway....
It seems their reporting tool is what keeps crashing....

Great list. Actually, I use some of these add-ons, but I don't want to uninstall them... So what I gonna do?

I was surprised with this crash exactly because I have no crashes of FF 2 (I used FF 2 almost from the day of its release till the release of FF 3).

Mine has crashed once so far,

I'm sure the crashes will be fixed soon enough.

I hope you're right :thumbsup:

Run FF in safe mode for awhile. Firefox will run without your add-ons running. Does it still crash? If not, then you can try disabling them, then enable them again one by one to see if you can figure out which one(s) might be causing the crashing. Depending on the add-on, you might be able to find a suitable substitute while you wait for you favorite to be upgraded-fixed.

Mommabear, thanks very much for the advice! :thumbsup: Everything seems to be mended now.

Does anyone know if it is possible to install Firefox 3 & keep firefox 2 on your system for separate use with old plug-ins you want to use?
