I wonder if it would be better to have a separate forum section for Browsers.
I am on XP Pro running firefox 2.0.0.16 and have only recently encountered this problem.
I go to a site and a message pops up with error details and I must close firefox.
I reopen firefox but choose to restore session and then the dialog comes up asking which data(if any) to clear. I choose none/cancel because I want to restore the session. I get the same error.
I open firefox again but start a new session. Sometimes this works; sometimes, not.

Has anyone encountered something like this in Firefox 3.0?
I will jot down the error message and its contents next time it happens.

I tried the same under a different USER on this computer.
Upon going to http://www.computerworld.com/action/art ... geNumber=5

I note the following message: "Security Warning You are about to leave an enycrypted page. Information you send or receive from now on could easily be read by a third party. [] Alert me whenever I leave an encrypted page for one that isn't encrypted. OK"

I continued and found myself at the same trouble spot: "firefox.exe
firefox.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
If you were in the middle of something, the information you were working on might be lost.

Clicking "here" shows: "firefox.exe

Clicking this shows: "Error Report Contents

The following files will be included in this error report:

there are no more options beyond this last dialog.
Though I have encountered this, the information is the same -- besides the username.
I am wondering what it could be...










I am wondering if I can post an image of some of these...

I changed some about:config settings on the firefox browser of another member of my network(we access Internet through the same router).
I will check if those changed settings could be the culprit.

Is there a way to find out when a setting was made in the about:config page in FF?
