I do like very much Mozilla Firefox but it's crashing a lot (if i compare it with Internet Explorer). That's for a few versions of Mozilla back but the recent one too. It was happening on my brothers laptop too (he have XP i have Vista). It is happening on a few sites but most on Gmail. I love both Mozilla and Gmail so please fix that.

Reproducible: Sometimes

Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  
Not to crash

I didn't noticed about any driver problem, it just says "Program is not responding" and after some time it may continue to work, or if i have oppened Gmail then it's stopping forever. Then i restart the Mozilla and everything is ok again. This is happening for a few months at least

Does it also happen in safe-mode? This to rule out problems caused by add-ons.

I haven't noticed that because i never use the safe mode(if i experience any kind of problems at that moment i use other browser).
Only 1 addons is installed on the both laptops: Html validator
Honestly i don't think so that this is the reason for the crash.

html validator *has* caused crashes. please get a stack trace.

I'm experiencing a similar problem (except I'm using XP) - not sure if it's related though, given the vagueness of this report (and mine).

Is there a document which contains more info on how to get FF stack traces? It often just hangs for me, leaking memory. After a while, if it doesn't stop hanging (which happens quite often, say 4 out of 5 hangs) I end up killing it. I'd love to get a stack trace, because right now there's not much I could put in a bugreport... Any pointers?
