About:crashes reports: no crashes have been submitted. I knew it would because there haven't been any. How long has it been now since FF3 was officially available. Thats when I started using it. No crashes. uuum good.

Crashes on my PC at work and at home very frequently. Almost enough to make me want to go back to IE, which is more stable the FF3 atm...

I got "the URL is not valid and cannot be loaded." Is this only a FF2 feature?

I get the same message as Mackenzie - URL not valid - running FF3 on ubuntu.

Ok i work at a fairly large library in australia and i use firefox all the time. it was crashing non-stop. Everyday. So IT took firfox 2 off and took me back to 1 and it crashed and crashed and then they rebuilt my computer last week and upgraded me to 3 and it STILL CRASHES! WHAT IS GOING ON?

my firefox 3.? was automatically Updated yesterday, today it crashes every time I try to open an e-mail attachment! I can right click and save OK

anybody here with lots of crashes running Firebug? According to developers, firebug can change the timing of certain javascript events and cause some underlying issues to be exacerbated, potentially crashing the browser.
