Firefox 4 problem

Since this thread is about browsers, may I ask you guys for a little help?
I used to run Firefox 3.5 as my browser for a long time. But by accident, or I guess for some strange reasons, my browser updated on its own to firefox 4. At first it was ok but shortly after, I get errors all the time. When I open multiple tabs like 4 tabs, firefox shuts down with this message:

“firefox.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience”

I get this message every time I try to open more than a single tab. I did not encounter this problem when I was using firefox 3.5.

I tried to uninstall and reinstall firefox 4 a couple times but I still get the same problem. I even downloaded registry cleaner but nothing happened.

At the moment I am using chrome but I’d love to work using firefox 4. I’m more comfortable with it if not for that problem.

Anyways, I would really appreciate if someone can tell me how to fix this problem so I can start using firefox 4 again.


Yeah me too facing this problem, some time it hangs down too and some time it crashes and need to restart this again. This problem is in new Mozilla Firefox 4 but not in 3.7.
Its better to change your Firefox version or try another browser like Chrome.

My notebook is old. I use firefox4 that make it hang often time.

Anybody else out there who could help me with this problem? I just want to keep using my firefox 4 without any problems. I’ve been chrome lately but I’m not very comfortable with it. I guess firefox 4 just became a part of me since I’ve been using it since the first time came out.

my system stuck when i open firefox 4,and after few seconds all thing goes normal. i have core 2 duo, 1 gb ram…
but firefox is resource hungry i guess!!

Firefox 4 seems very problem. I checked my task manager and noticed that Firefox 4 consume high resources. My laptop always in high CPU and RAM consumption and Firefox 4 contributed the cause!

It did not happen when it is at 3.x version. There are similar thread about Firefox where Firefox 5 is released. I wondered is that because they found the issue and tried to solve it?

I am using 3 browsers at the moment to evenly spread my laptop resources.

it may not be the full version that support all the features
try to download the full version or update again

Try firefox 5, 4 was a bit short lived.

same problem on 5, dun know why mozilla launch 4 and 5.

Well, I’ve just installed firefox 5 a while back and still got the same problem. It also seemed that it has very little difference with firefox 4. WHY AM I GETTING THIS “CRASH REPORT” ALL THE TIME STILL!

I had the same problem,but I fix it after one day with the help of internet I see a bet solution then I use this method also fixes a lot of common computer errors, I think you should try it, you only need 3 steps to fix firefox.exe error:

These are 3 step to repair firefox.exe error

1: Download a firefox.exe error repair tool and install it.
2: Open firefox.exe error repair tool and scan you computer for free.
3: Click fix button and you done.

Thanks. But I have been using chrome for a while now. got really sick of this firefox problem.

Moderators: kindly close this thread now. Thanks.

I’m not completely happy with Chrome, I don’t like the direction Mozilla took firefox after 3.6, I decided to stick with 3.6 unless absolutely necessary, which I don’t foresee for a long time, a browser is a browser how much can you possibly change ? Make the buttons vertical, make the text wiggle, make the icons say my name ? After a while the whole business modo of having to release a new version every 2 weeks, 6 weeks, 6 months with some software, becomes over the top.

Since the OP has requested and found a solution to his problem, this thread is now closed.
