Okay, so I have the latest version of FireFox running on XP SP3. Whenever I try to, let's say, use YouTubes record from webcam option, it crashes firefox. I don't know what to do. It's a minor inconvinence, but still, an inconvinience. Thanks!!!

Do you have the same issues with an alternate browser (Opera, IE, etc)?

If you would attach some of your most recent BSOD minidumps to your next post, I might be able to learn something helpful for you in that way.


edited to correct browers to browser... dyslexic today I guess.
(or whatever the equivalent term would be for keyboarding.... (sloppy?))

No, I don't get bsod. It just makes firefox crash, like, close itself and tell me that it crashed. And no, I have not tried this on other browsers. I only have ie eight and firefox.

Sorry, misunderstood.
In that case, event viewer can be used to discover the culprit.

How To Use Event Viewer - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/40108/how-to-use-event-viewer/

Pay attention especially to posts one and two. Later posts start dealing with the bsods.

Points 5&6 in the first post will help you to isolate the information needed to resolve your issue.
The "information" events may be filtered out using the "view" drop-down.
That way you wont' need to scroll through so much information to find the applicable event.

When you find some events that relate to the crash of Firefox, post that information
if you need more help,
and someone will be able to help you from there.
