    possible bug or its just me

    Lately when browse the site using Firefox 3.0 running on XP home SP3, I get a shutdown with "an unhandled win32 exception occurred in Firefox.exe (3952). I believe it is caused by one of the ad scripts that run in the upper right of each page. The Microsoft big, really big and how to fight off whatevers work without any difficulty. I think the errors are coming from the IBM ad which I only see when using IE or Opera, I never see that ad in Firefox.

    The whole page loads, when the ad should start the browser shuts down.

    You could try using BurpSuite to deny the ad...

    Firefox three seems to have a lot of problems with a lot of sites. Display issues, posting issues, crashing issues, etc. It appears vBulletin is not terribly compatible with it, but it's not limited to forum sites either.

    Strangely enough, I had the problem with FireFox 2.0 but not 3.0. In any event, I'd suggest installing the NoScript add-on and systematically removing script permissions until you find the culprit.

    For me, that big IBM advertisement is an atdmt.com script.

    I wasn't able to post with Firefox as the browser, all the boxes were greyed out. I'm happy to say this works fine under IE, so I can just as easily use that for posts, but I do think Firefox has gone from being a great, simple browser into a cumbersome beast not all that better than Internet Explorer.

    Sir, you've got a flat tire. I suggest you just buy a new car.

    With FF, it's more like 4 flat tires, missing windshield, AC doesn't work, and the engine is blown.
