Hey everyone...

Just wondering if anyone is having trouble with Mozilla? Mine goes "Not Responding" somethings and it drives me cuckoo - just wondering if its just Mozilla that does this or my laptop in general?

Cheers,

Annie

Hi Annie


I am using Morilla Firefox, with no problem,  have recently got a new laptop and the first time I downloaded Firefox, I had a similar problem to you, but since downloading it again the problem seems to have sorted itself out.

Try a different browser.  If your laptop came with the Windows OS, it should have Internet Explorer on it.

Hi Jericho and Nick...


Thank you both for your suggestions but seemingly downloading Firefox again solved the problem so thanks Jericho for your suggestion.

My version Firefox 6 has recently started doing this intermittently. I wonder if it's worth downloading again?

Could the problem with freezing be due to the fact ff does auto update on every start up?
On my installation - now on 7.0.1, I found that this happened whilst ff was checking/ updating in the background.
So depending on resources available (memory in use), I believe if limited resources this would cause this freezing.

I always use Firefox, never had any problems but I do keep up with the upgrades. My son & dau in law use Chrome. I avoid IE because of  security concerns

According to Secunia Personal Software Inspector, Firefox as well as IE suffer from a vulnerability caused by Sun Java JRE 1.6.x/6.x.  Their advice is not to open untrusted files. 

Java are under some pressure to resolve this but currently there is nothing in the pipeline.
