Crashing Firefox

Update: About 5 minutes after posting this I realised that the crashing was due to the MozCC extension which I had updated this morning. Having disabled it, everything is fine and dandy again.

It would appear that this page on my site crashes Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 on Mac OS X. Not entirely sure why but it happened 3 times in a row. For the Mozillians out there, the relevant TalkBack report is here – see what you can make of it.

Despite it being a beta, Firefox 2.0 Beta 1 has been very stable for me on both Windows and OS X, which is why I was surprised at the crashing (and even more so over the fact that it was one of my web pages causing it). It’s hardly crashed at all on me since installing and has incurred heavy use.


  1. About your above post, you’d be more likely to get a response if you posted it in the Mozillazine Firefox build forum. Here:
    Or even submitted it through the Firefox program itself.
    Good luck.

  2. I suggest you use BugZilla over TalkBack 🙂
