    Firefox 4 closing down?

    Anybody had trouble with FF4 coming up with the error message that it has to close when visiting some sites?

    I'm having to run it in safe mode to visit Ebay and some Yahoo groups, other Yahoo groups work fine.

    I suspect it has something to do with Ad blocking which gets disabled in "Safe mode".
    Cheers MIKE.

    No problems here with FF4 ... checked eBay site and it opens fine, too.

    Sometimes a full cache can cause some problems ... I routinely dump mine at least monthly or when I start to see strange site behaviour.

    I am not using any Ad blocking as I'm not pestered by them much. I think Norton takes care of most of those.

    Had trouble with my daughters computer refusing to open the net. She has windows seven and uses IE. Could not even open the virus update. Used Firefox to open up and that seemed to cure it.
