All I was doing was reading a post, then tried to move to another and Firefox froze. Most of my experience with Firefox freezing has to do with either Flashgot downloads, or when the Mac sleeps, or if there is no activity for a period of time, but now I'm seeing a freeze under a more active scenario. Also, Firefox froze yesterday after only about 10 minutes of idle time, which is much quicker than usual. I've seen the huge number of posts of Firefox freezes, PC as well as Mac, and this really has to get fixed, as it is absolutely ruining the user experience of this otherwise lovely browser. Firefox has frozen under some conditions since version 1.0, my first experience with it, but it is getting worse, not better. Reproducible: Sometimes Steps to Reproduce: 1.Read posts on Message Board 2.Move to other posts, maybe make one 3.Firefox freezes Actual Results: Had to force quit, Firefox became "unresponsive" Expected Results: worked
The version of firefox you are using is rather outdated. Could you please try the following trunk build (alpha version of firefox 1.1) and see if you experience the same problems http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/nightly/latest-trunk/firefox-1.0+.en-US.mac.dmg
