The latest Firefox update 1.0.4 crashes randomly!?

Now I can only see some sites in IE.

By the way, you can never delete any of the extensions/plugins.  This sucks.

I'm using 1.0.4 and have been for weeks now. I haven't had any crashes. I haven't visited any sites that I can't see in Firefox.

I did have one problem, however. A while back, flashblock asked me to let it update itself. Since I'm a nice guy and all that, I said "Sure, go ahead." Of course Flashblock's updater promptly screwed up and hid Flashblock. I went to the flashblock site, where they had written in semi-big text that you shouldn't let it auto-update. Of course you'd never SEE that text when Firefox asks if you want to let flashblock auto-update. You'd think they could at least make the installer cancel installing if it's already installed. Anyways, apparently you have to uninstall it (And apparently it doesn't like to uninstall properly too), and then install the new version, if you want to update it.

Anyways, flashblock was still in the extensions, it was just hidden, so I couldn't install the new version. I tried to kill it so I could install the new version, but every time it just FUBARed Firefox so it wouldn't even START anymore. Eventually I tried uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox. Well, that didn't work either. Finally I just removed the entire Firefox extensions folder and made a new empty one. Had to reinstall all my extensions, of course, but at least it worked again, and I was even able to install the new version of flashblock. Haven't had any trouble since then.

Now, don't take this as me being pissed at Firefox. I'm not. If anything, I'm pissed at whoever made Flashblock. But it's so incredibly useful that I'm using it anyways.

Let's see, what extensions do I have installed now...
Flashblock 1.3.1, Adblock v.5 d2 * nightly 39, EditCSS 0.3.1, Web Developer 0.9.3, BugMeNot 0.6.2, Add N Edit Cookies 0.2.0.4.

And I'm using the "Abstract PC" theme.

You just deleted the extensions folder and they were gone?

Yeah. If I'm remembering right, anyways. In case anyone's confused because they have a Mac or something, it was Firefox's extensions folder, not an OS extensions folder. It's here: c:\documents and settings\MyUserName\application data\mozilla\firefox\Profiles\theWeirdProfileFolderName.default\extensions

I might have had to reinstall Firefox after removing the folder, I don't remember.

Thank you so much Zealousy, that button is fantastic :D

I love Operas ability to use those buttons, I have another great button that "kills" for example those Hover-Flash-Ads.
You can hide any element on the page, pretty cool....

No Prob. I had a friend introduce me to that forum page. The only thing was, he couldn't stop talking about how great Opera is, like a salesman. He and I agreed that he really should get paid commission. ;)

Firefox, love the tabbed browsing. So much better than having 20 windows open at once.
