    My Firefox updates to release 18 a couple of days ago and it crashes every time you have multiple tabs open and you close one. Anyone else having issues with FF 18???

    Mine is working fine. Suggest you disable all add ons and plug ins, then see if it works. If so, turn them back on one at a time and see which one is causing it to crash.

    By any chance do either of you utilize Norton Toolbar???? I think that may be the issue although Norton said Toolbar is compatible with FF 18 and I did do the Norton update..

    I myself, do not use any toolbars. I find toolbars take up to much screen real estate for little payback.

    So far, no problem here. And I been running two windows, each with multi-tabs.

    Not running the Norton Toolbar. Haven't run anything Norton in years.

    Not that I read Facebook, but my wife got a hint that if you're having problems with crashing - select Tools, Options, Advanced - Uncheck "Use Hardware Acceleration"

    I never had crashing issues with Firefox beta 18 (or the release of it) on my Mac. But now I'm on 19 beta :)

    I think my issue had something to do with Norton 360. I uninstalled and reinstalled Norton 360 and now everything works. It must have had something to do with FireFox 18 installing before the Norton update.
