    I have NEVER had problems with Firefox before.

    I recently installed I.E. 7 beta to try it out, and now my Firefox browser is crashing on me all the time.

    Conspiracy theories anyone? ;)

    It DOES sound a little suspicious, doesn't it?

    Uninstall the IE beta7 and see if your Firefox problems go away.

    The problem with beta softwear is it can be very buggy and have unpredictable results.

    ugh. I just tried IE7 beta and it sucks..... I have Mozilla, not firefox, and it works fine. I have since reverted my system back to IE6 for non mozilla compliant websites (like some military sites.).

    I didn't really see an option with uninstalling IE7. You will have to do a system restore.
    I hope you backed up your system prior. I did.

    Thanks for the advice everyone. Actually I wasn't really looking for advice. Just posting the irony, and trying to troll people into a I.E. is evil conspiracy debate ;)

    Well, that's where I was going anyway. :)
