    Firefox 1.06 was (almost) perfect. Firefox 1.07 is crashing a lot though. A
    lot of errors, WinXP telling me that FF 1.07 has an arror and has to close.
    FF 1.06 didn't had this, so where can I get 1.06 again??

    Thanx in advance

  2. I'm glad I'm not the only one!

    It improved after uninstalling DELETING all the Firefox folders (save
    your bookmarks first), then reinstalling. Although I still get
    Thunderbird crashing occassionally now.!

  3. I haven't had any problems with 1.0.7.

    Just to see, Do an uninstall from Control Panel>>Add/Remove Programs,
    and then make sure that the Program Files\Mozilla Firefox folder is
    completely gone. Then reinstall 1.0.7. Its a security update, so it
    shouldn't behave differently then 1.0.6. Also, try starting FF 1.0.7 in
    Safe Mode, to rule out a conflict with an extension.

    You can get 1.0.6, and if it works to your satisfaction, great, but I
    suspect you will find it will have the same problem, pointing to some
    sort of problem with your installation. Here is is though:


    I'm assuming you want US English. If not, click Parent Directory to
    choose a different localization.

    Okay, thanx for the info and tips. Will look into it!!
    And no, no English. I'm from the Netherlands so the Dutch version is the one
    for me ;-)

  6. Second attempt, crashed again !

    Are there any new drivers in 1.0.7 that are not in 1.0.6 ?

    The error message I get after a 'blue' screen' BAD_POOL_HEADER' message
    (there is another one as well sometimes)


    Error caused by a device driver

    Thank you for submitting an error report.

    Problem description

    A device driver installed on your computer caused the problem; however,
    we cannot determine the precise cause. To troubleshoot the problem,
    please see Getting help.

    I ask because I'm trying to pin the last thing that I installed since
    these crashes and I've not installed any new hardware.

    The last thing I installed was Firefox 1.0.7. This may just be a
    coincidence, but I've got to ask the question.

    Many thanks

  7. That's why I mentioned localizations!

    Using this ftp link, you can find all sorts of historic
    FF/Firebird/Phoenix versions.

  8. Its a browser, drivers are not an issue in a browser.

    I've never experienced a problem of this kind, but many others have
    found that Mozilla products are finicky with video/graphics drivers.
    You might start with trying to update drivers for your video card.

    just because you're using FF and your computer crashes doesn't mean
    its a FF problem. Windows doesn't play well with other programs. If
    its not an MS program, then it causes all sorts of problems, and
    windows hates taking responsibility for the problem. Instead it
    always puts the blame onto the other program.

    Run Doctor Watson, let windows crash and see what report Watson gives
    you, then report back. Do a search on your hard-drive for Drwatson.exe.

    My FF 1.07 crashes a lot, but less if I turn javascript off.

    Mine crashes some too but no more actually a little less than IE does.
    However I think if firefox let us choose the msjava to load instead of
    sunjava most if not all crashes could be prevented on firefox.

    Same here, except when a router went bad.

  17. I'm sorry to have to disagree with you.

    Even IE doesn't use MS Java Virtual Machine anymore. You can't even
    download it ata the MS site, at least last I looked, though bootleg
    copies are still available from a couple of sources.It was a bad
    version, we are far better off with Sun.
