Sounds like a bug in Firefox (or perhaps one of the binary plug-ins you may be using). I can't reproduce it though.

Firefox has just been updated

from version 3.6 to 3.67. I guess they are fixing some bugs now.
And perhaps that also mean your problem vanishes...?

Perhaps it's the size..?

The thread you're referring to is stuffed with extremely long posts.
So, perhaps FF crashes simply because of the sheer size of the page..?

PS: What version of FF do you have..?

Update..?

Post by phantazm » Sat Jul 24, 2010 1:01 pm

If you have version 3.6, you could try updating to version 3.67
Let us know if the problem still persists in the new version...

"runaway scripts" from what addon, or site or what..?
Have you tried using NoScript to temporarily block those scripts..?

EDIT: Recently I've noticed problems with ghostery scripts.
FF didn't crash, but did warn that a script had become unresponsive,
and offered me the opportunity to stop it now, or wait to see if it returned...

That post is not worth reading anyway. I started getting a headache after a few sentences.
But I geuss it's still important to solve the problem
