Hey guys

I'm just wondering if anyone knows if there might be something wrong with my firefox, or if this is just normal:

This has happened so frequently that I guess I've gotten used to it, but I've started to get sick of it crashing all the time

here are some images:

It seems to crash more often when I do flash related content, for example just then I was doing youtube and it crashed when I clicked a video.

So I'm not really sure what is causing the problem if anyone has any ideas please let me know

Cheers

just realised as well, I should put this crash report up it might be more helpful:

    You should go to the Firefox forums for assistance with Firefox. Firefox is not an Apple product.

    Kappy's right. Firefox is not an Apple product; Safari is.

    However, I'm willing to help--have you tried shutting off your add-ons? have you downloaded something recently that might be interfering?

    Best of luck!

    What add-ons are you using with Safari?

    As for Firefox remove the add-ons.

    The plug-ins to which you referred have nothing whatsoever to do with Flash. The Ad Blocker add-on for Firefox is just that - an ad blocker. EasyShare is a third-party add-on that I'm not sure is even for Safari, but it may be. In any event remove any third-party additions for either browser. Consult the add-on developer for how to remove the item. For Safari and OS X in general keep in mind that support for Input Managers has been constrained in Leopard and eliminated in Snow Leopard.
