As most of you know, i was having problems with Firefox the other night (now, officially Firefox isn't supported in Vista). The F-ing thing kept crashing on me. Well, i found out what the problem was. It was the Skype addon that was crashing it (as far as i could tell). I had just upgraded to the newest Skype beta (which ROCKS!) and i let it install the skype addon. Even since then, i would get this screen after about 15 seconds:
Attached File  error.JPG   85.29K   265 downloads

I was getting so frustrated. I thought it might have been due to Norton 2007 being installed, but it wasn't related (i uninstalled the bloated Norton anyways). So i tried running FF in safe mode (that is FF safe mode, not windows safe mode). Low and behold, it ran just fine. Using my supreme powers of deduction (i remembered the last addon installed was skype), i uninstalled the skype addon. After that, i re-opened FF and it ran as happy as a elephant in a peanut factory. w00t!

I hope that this will help anyone that has probs with FF in Vista...just remember to check your addons (oh, and run the latest FF version).
