That site works fine with Internet Explorer
but I rarely use it anyway, as the download speed is hopeless,
in my opinion.

If it doesn't crash with any of his other browsers, it could simply be an old version of Firefox or his configs. I don't have any issues with Download.com, on all of my browsers.

It seems it's either a version issue (either too old or too new) or a conflicting addon. Maybe you should disable some of your recently downloaded addons and see if it doesn't crash.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

So it was a conflicting Add-on. Usually it is when only 1 or 2 sites don't work.
