I've been having some problems with the newest version of Firefox. Is it just me of has anyone else had it crash as well?

Not once. Try disabling some extensions, those are usually the culprit.

Nor have I, but I rarely, if ever use it! LOL!

I prefer IE7 as noted here:

My only extension is AdBlockPlus. (Scott, nice to meet you in DC last week!)

No problems. And, I have been using it since it became available. ^

Me too. FireFox rocks. ^ Most of my extensions are now updated.

Two incidents of being nonresponsive but no crashes. When I force it closed the next time it asks if I want to restore my session--and if I say yes it puts back most everything--including in both cases the message I was entering when it went into la-la land.

Firefox 2.0 sucks on an intel Mac.

Can't see videos (no YouTube), and some sites just flat out won't load.

Firefox 2.0 crashed on me a few times and worse still took up 100% of CPU usage, effectively freezing my machine.

I cannot believe they released it in this state. It is not ready for prime time and I cannot even consider using it until they identify and sort out the problem.

No problems so far. I had to remove a couple of extensions since they were annoying, but nothing more. (New extensions, I had just installed with the 2.0 upgrade). I like the spell check one. Eye can spill now!

Yes, it freezes up my PC once in a while. That hadn't happened to me in years. I only have one extension. (IEView)
