Is anyone else having issues with Firefox 4 freezing or crashing?
I’m on OSX and am constantly relaunching FF.
Curious if anyone may know what is going on.
Mine just freezes at random times. Some times I get that drop down message about a script not running and of you want to stop or continue.
I like FF but this is irritating.
Same its very slow, even slower than Safari.
Just reinstalled Windows today because both FF and Chrome were acting weird. Chrome always crashed when i tried to download something (save an image for example) and FF had issues at random times.
For now it seems to be working well.
I was using Windows 7 32bit and now on Windows 7 64bit, no issues today.
Might have been the 32bit or maybe i had viruses and stuff on my computer, who knows
My daily experience: FF4 starts up perfectly fine, I load up GMail, it still works great. I open one or two tabs and type an address for each, it freezes. After 5 seconds it works again and never freezes again.
In my opinion Firefox 4 on Mac OS X is horrible. It’s very slow and it likes to freeze from time to time. But on Windows 7 it works fine for me.
Firefox just crashed. Next step: went to themeforest forum – found this thread.
It crashed sometimes on win 7 64b…
Yeah, FF4 is buggy…
- fetches pages very slow compared to 3.6
- uses an amazing amount of memory. I have 8 GB, but when FF4 is at 1k load, it’s not very responsive…
- often freezes when loading a page
- crashes often
It’s definitely not my machine, I think (Core i7 2.9 GHz, 8 GB RAM , 160 GB SSD , Win 7 Ultimate x64)
For the moment I only use it on my (other) work laptop, which is not even half as powerful as the above. I just got used to it being slow
The way I see&feel it, FF 4 .0 is just like Windows Vista. A beta for the version to come
