Strange, that you still want to stick with Firefox 3. I enjoy the latest versions more.

Well....I was once again liking the new version of FF and was even thinking about coming back to it as my full time browser (been using Opera as primary for a while now). But, almost every time I close the browser with the X in the right hand corner, and later re-open FF, I'm finding that FF did not properly close. That is a pain!

I vaguely remember someone else having this issue and I think the answer was going into the file menu and clicking on close or exit. Yea, that will probably work, but that's not how I use browsers and is not ok with me.

I guess I'll look around to see if I can find a fix.

Kendall, are you having this problem with the latest version, that is, Firefox 8?

Because, I am facing this problem. All of a sudden, Firefox will stop opening pages. I checked with other browsers, and they were working. Then, I would close Firefox, and find that its still running in Task Manager. I have to kill it from there, and then open again. Its strange.

I was thinking this might be because of a new firewall that I have been trying out. I am still not sure.

Anyone experiencing this with Firefox?

Kendall, MC was having that problem with Firefox, and his was some other problem. I think the firewall was posing some problem, and obstructing one of the add-ons. Now that I think of it, I am using the same firewall.. so its time now to find that MC's post.

MC, how did you solve the problem? You had not written about that in the post. I am having AVS Firewall presently on my PC. But, I am not using its Anti-banner module. Can it still cause a conflict with AdBlockPlus?

Yes, it is the newest version, version 8. I too have had to kill FF several times from Task Manager. The only difference for me is that I do not use a firewall other than the windows 7 firewall.

If this keeps up, I may try out Pale Moon. I did install Pale Moon the other day Sandboxed. I tried it out and found it to be very fast. Most of my add-ons worked too. Unfortunately, I deleted the contents of that Sandbox. But, it's easy enough to install. Like I said, if this keeps up with FF, I might go back to Opera or try Pale Moon.

Kendall, you can see if any add-on is causing the problem with Firefox. Because for such strange behavior, most of the times, something is the problem, which causes this. Otherwise, Firefox does not show strange behavior generally. Still, this might be a bug, lets see if others report it.

I will keep using Firefox, as this is not a constant occurring problem for me, but happens randomly, and I only experienced it with this version. I am still not sure, if its Firefox, or the firewall. I will use Firefox on other hard disk, which is without AVS Firewall, and see how it goes.

Also, usually, I do a fresh install of major versions, but this time I installed over the top. So, I may try a fresh install if it continues to happen.

I have read some good things about Pale Moon... so you can give it a try.

Anupam: I've always did over the top installs and have faced no problems. Did the same to version 8. Am on XP. No problems here.

Thanks Concerned User .. then I think we are having local issues. I am guessing the firewall is behind this.
