My Firefox updated itself today, but now keeps crashing whenever I go to close a tab or indeed just a single Firefox-opened webpage. Is anyone else having this problem? (Sure, I can use IE9 or Chrome instead, but Firefox has a lot of good add-ons). I hope they fix the bug pronto! Mad

Solution: Did a system restore (inconvenient from the POV of losing some Norton and esp. Windows updates), disconnected from net, opened Firefox, disabled its automatic updates, and thus reverted from v18 (which has garnered a lot of similarly critical comments over on Mozilla webpages) back to 17. Problem solved, and won't update until these bugs are fixed in a later version!

This problem has been fixed in FF v19.
