Hi,

I need to know what operating system you are using. Have you tried running firefox in safe mode: http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/safe+mode

Try and run it in safe mode and see if it crashes, if it doesn't then you have an issue with an add-on if it does then we will go further. :)

The sites you mention use flash throughout them. (Facebook on games, Playstation uses it randomly).

Try firefox in safe mode, as suggested, and if it doesn't happen uninstall the Flash plugin and reinstall it from the Adobe website.

Ok my fire fox finally comes . I can't find safe mode or even get it to run in that mode. For some reason it is taking hell of a long time to bring up firefox . At least over 10 ten mins . I mean this darn thing worked just fine Friday mooring and all day to last night even . I think its adope reader being messed up as it won't install the update for some reason and tells me that my windows installer may not be installed, but I do have the latest update on that as I just checked . Could my laptop be on it's last leg of operation ? it is only like 3-4 years old . Thanks for your help guys. Much quicker then dealing phone tech :thumbsup:

OK I did update fire fox to make sure it had the latest update and so far it is running up and smooth again .I'll keep posted if I begin to have any more issues. Again thanks guys !

3-4 is still pretty "young" compared to the life span of many PCs (Of course assuming this PC wasn't out of date when you bought it).

Glad you got it working but have you ran any virus/malware scans? If so was anything found?

NpaMA, thanks for your replay . But my dang problem came back again gr . I don't know what is going on now .But for some reason it won't load Fire fox in any mod . It just sits there and does nothing so far.I was out of town for 3 days so I dunno. What should I try doing next ? The only virus scan i is called spy ware terminator and it doesn't even run the internet part of as you gotta pay for it ( who wants to right lol ) This is really getting frustrating as everything works just fine on the dang laptop .Tho I do have problems getting Itunes to work but that is a whole another problem . What should I do next ?
