Tried different versions of firefox, and even installed the one from my laptop which doesn't crash, (xp), and it worked fine for awhile, then started crashing again when I select a new link.  Have uninstalled, reinstalled, checked add ons, and ran bug checks.  Chrome works just fine, doesn't crash on this machine, just the firefox.  Is really beginning to to bother me, this is my fav browser.

Well, first, you have firefox 3.0.5, which is extremely old. Please download and install firefox 3.6, which has a bunch of crashes fixed.
Also, update your flash, java, quicktime, reader, etc.
 Then, give a stacktrace.
