MMC Forums Crashing Firefox

Hey Everyone.

I'm not sure if there is anything wrong with the site or if this has been said about before but when I try to view it using Firefox 3.5 it runs slow on the home page, I then click through to the forums and it loads the page and crashes the browser, it then exits. It's been keeping me away from the forums.

I'm on Windows Vista Home Premium

I'm having to use IE to post this... I hate IE.

not sure this will help; I know you would probably like to to keep using Firefox, but I use Google Chrome and it works well. Have you tried it? And there is also Opera, but I have not used that, so I don't know enough about it.

Chrome and Apple's Safari use webkit to render the web pages and I find that to run a bit slow and clunky on this PC.

Opera is an ok browser but is worse at rendering pages than Firefox and Chrome/Safari tests have shown.

Firefox was working fine up until a few weeks ago here... it now loads, freezes and then closes for some really strange reason. I'm hoping it isn't some malicious code running on the forum somewhere, although I doubt it.

Firefox has long been a problematic browser for vBulletin sites. We've tested in FF but we find when crashes or errors happen it is usually because of java settings. Also, a combination of FF with some anti-virus packages can also be an issue. I use FF here frequently, fully updated, without issue.

If it helps to know we're soon to launch a redesign as soon as testing is done, which includes the latest from FF.

Firefox does not work for me with some sites but I have no problem on this site and it's all I use here. I hope you get it working again.

I use Firefox on my Mac and have never had a problem. Could Vista be causing the crash?

I've been using Firefox on both a Mac and a PC and haven't had any problems with this forum crashing. Hm ...

It's working for me today so far... It's been so bad recently I expected it to crash as soon as I loaded the index page of the forum.

P.S. I'm looking forward to the redesign, I like shiny new things...
