    Disable all plugins and try it again.
    That's the end of that!

      Do you mean I remove all addons?

        No, you disable (deactivate) them - that's enough.

        If the error is gone you have a faulty add-on - that's mostly the reason for crashes.
        That's the end of that!

          Stable Firefox or an other build?

          Stable - a addon can crash your browser
          Last build - the browser itself can crash

            Remove it completely. make sure you have no remain files in the following directories:
            C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox
            C:\Documents and Settings\User\Application Data
            C:\Documents and Settings\User\Local Settings

            The same for all users:
            C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data
            C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Local Settings

            And then install it again.

              No just disable the add ons.

              Right click on the refresh button and go through the add ons.

              if that doesn't work You might have to upgrade

                Yes, I have addons installed. I don't want to disable/remove them as I need them. I'm using the last version of FF.

                It usually crashes when I have alot of tabs opened.

                  Don't have that problem myself, unless a lot of tabs have flash stuff in them.

                    I've found FireFox randomly crashes quite often (once or twice a day) but at least it restores them when FireFox is restarted.

                      I leave Firefox running for days and even weeks at a time without any crashes. You do have to close any tabs that contain Flash and are not being used though. There is still a long standing and known memory leak when you have Flash running inside a Firefox tab.
