Browsers like Mozilla/Opera/Crome/Netscape crashing
This issue is common for many using WinOS XP SP3, Vista, Win7 etc as Microsoft has made malicious programming codes in-built into their Explorer that makes other browsers work unstable....
There was a law suit which MS lost on this issue...now they have to allow other browsers to work in tandem....i guess this issue is not there in XP currently as the updates in there are not built to crash other browsers...so try XP...also try not to use Auto update enabled in the Control Panel/Security Ctr (disable it). I guess only a fresh clean install of OS with Auto update disabled can keep the updates from making changes to Mozilla/Opera/Google Crome/Netscape etc browsers...other than IE.
Note: Irrespective of which Win OS you are having keep the Auto Update Turned OFF, that way you will have less problems and the machine will be more stable, more often the Auto Update makes unnecessary changes to the OS which is not required at all…the Auto Update is in the Control Panel/Security Center. I have had many issues with Auto updates in the past, after disabling it since 1 year no issues in OS and my machine is more stable than earlier.
Keep these Settings in Security Center:
Firewall – ON, Auto Update – OFF, Virus Protection – ON and updated
