Build Identifier: Firefox 3.0

I've been a loyal Firefox user ever since learning about it a lot time ago. Upon downloading 3.0 I find that it shuts down my PC after about 3 minutes of opening the program. This did not occur with the previous version of Foxfire. Please troubleshoot this problem and let me know what to do. I've uninstalled all previous versions of Firefox, then re-downloaded 3.0. Same result. I know it's all MicroShaft ****, but I want my Firefox back!

A VERY loyal user

As for trying to find out the underlying cause... is there anything in your system event log just prior to the previous shutdown regarding a shutdown event? If so can you provide the details from those log entries in this bug?

Thanks

WFM with XP. Also, can you try in Safe Mode (http://support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/Safe+Mode) and what are you doing before the shut down?
No reply, INCOMPLETE. Please retest with Firefox 3.6.13 or later and a new profile (http://support.mozilla.com/kb/Managing+profiles). If you continue to see this issue with the newest firefox and a new profile, then please comment on this bug.
