    there are so many reasons for mozilla crashes 1.A number of different viruses and spyware are known to crash Firefox.
    Ensure that your system is kept clean of spyware and viruses 2.Extensions and themes can often cause crashes and other errors. This is
    especially true if you recently installed or updated an extension easy methiod to find addon are extension made ur firefox crash disable addons installed one by one try browsing after each disable operation .if it works right the last disabled addon is cause for the problem. i prefer u to uninstall firefox browser and try browsing through other available browsers like opera ,ie8,etc.. i u have same problems like slow loading etc.download the latest version from herehttp://www.mozilla.com/en-US/

How to Disable Google Instant Search Permanently in Firefox


Google state that this instant search feature saves time and effort when you come to search for something on the web.
If you're like me and many other people you will find this feature a pain in the backside when having to click on the right hand side to disable it everytime you open Firefox.
However there is a way to disable this feature permanently from the configuration page inside the browser itself.

Below I will show you how disable Instant search:

Open a new Firefox browser window and type About:Config in the address bar. Press the Enter key. (this is the bar at the top of the page which starts with http://)

Read the warning. Press the "I'll Be Careful, I Promise!" button.

Type Firefox in the blank field labeled Filter.

Double-click on the following entry to open a dialog box: general.useragent.extra.firefox.

Type www.google.com into the blank field. Click the OK button to close the dialog box.

Exit out of the browser window

Now when you open Firefox again you see that the Instant search is not there anymore and won't hinder your browsing experience.


Happy browsing !!!!

Google chrome keeps crashing not sure why


You need to check out all these:
1. Check for Conflicting Software:
- Some third-party software can cause Google Chrome to crash. When this happens, you'll see the message "Whoa! Google Chrome has crashed. It's possible that you have malware that can cause Google Chrome to crash.
- Google Chrome has a hidden page that will tell you if any software on your system is known to conflict with Google Chrome. To access it, type chrome://conflicts into Chrome's address bar and press Enter.
- You can try to fix these crashes by updating, disabling, or uninstalling any conflicting third-party software listed in "about:conflicts" on your computer. Also, take a look at Google Chrome's known issues for specific solutions to resolve crashes caused by some software.
2. Scan for Malware
- This includes malware and network-related software that interferes with Google Chrome. Malware can also interfere with Google Chrome and cause it to crash.
- You can try using Malwarebytes, or other anti-virus software to scan for and remove malware or you can also try searching the web for information related to any conflicting modules listed on the chrome://conflicts page (Windows only), to see if there are other steps you can take to remove malware.
- Many crashes are caused by malware. If you're experiencing frequent crashes, try scanning your computer with antivirus software.
3. Solve Flash Crashes
- We have found that the Flash plugin Chrome includes can cause it to crash in some cases. If you are seeing regular Shockwave Flash crashes, you may want to try disabling the internal Flash plugin and using the standard Flash plugin in Google Chrome.
4. Switch to a New Profile
- Chrome crashes may be caused by a corrupted profile. You can test this by creating a new profile from Chrome's Settings screen. Open the Settings page from Chrome's menu and click Add new user under Users.
- Change to the new profile after creating it and see if the crashes continue to occur. You can sign into Chrome with your Google account to sync the data from your old profile. However, Google recommends you don't copy any files from the old profile folder by hand - they may be corrupted and causing the problem.
5. Fix System File Problems

- Google recommends running the SFC.EXE /SCANNOW program to check for - and fix - problems with protected system files on your Windows system if you are encountering crashes. To do this, locate the Command Prompt in your Start menu (press the Windows key and type Command Prompt), right-click it, and select Run as Administrator.
- Type the following command in the Command Prompt window and press Enter:
SFC.EXE /SCANNOW
- Windows will scan your computer for problems with system files and fix any problems it finds.
6. Hardware issues
- It can also cause Chrome crashes. You may want to test your computer's RAM and ensure it isn't faulty.

· If still problem not solve, maybe you should try these simple steps:
1. Try restarting your computer first. It could be that the computer has just encountered a slight glitch on your system, which is causing things to not work properly.
2. Remove and Re-install the Google Chrome application. Doing this will allow your computer to read the files a lot better and faster, and also repair any damaged or corrupt files that have been causing the issue. To remove the Google Chrome application, first insure that you have another browser, such as IE or Firefox, click "Start, Control Panel, Add / Remove Programs," locate "Google Chrome" click UNINSTALL next to it. When the application loads, select "REMOVE" (not repair). Follow the uninstall process, and restart your PC. Problems uninstalling or re-installing Chrome indicate mal- or spy-ware, which must be dealt with.
3. Remove any extensions that you have on Google Chrome. Although they are a great way to personalize your Internet browsing experience, they are not so good for speed and functionality, as many can cause the application to crash. To remove any extensions follow these steps: Open up Google Chrome. In the address bar type chrome: //extensions. Click Uninstall, or Click Disable if you think you may use the add-on in the future. Restart your browser.
4. Disable plug-ins. Chrome can get bogged down with plugins that you aren't using, also. Type about: plugins into Chrome; it will redirect to chrome://plugins. Disable any that you aren't currently using.
Hopefully your Google Chrome crash problems are gone. Hope it works. Sharing is always caring.

Google crome has crashed how to fix it


Reinstall Chrome. Don't install your current version yourself, let the system handle the reinstall so that it can save your bookmarks and settings.

Try downloading Mozilla Firefox, Opera and Google Chrome.Unlike Internet Explorer they install in less than 5 minutes and they arefaster and safer than Internet Explorer.

Go to www.google.com and in the search box type: "Download MozillaFirefox" (without the quotes). Download and Install Mozilla Firefoxfrom Mozilla's website. Do the same thing for Opera and Google Chrome.

I've put the links of each one below so if you like you can just click on themto go to their site to do the download and install.

How to set goggle as default browser


Google is a search engine not a browser.
You can run any browser such as Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox and get them to default to Google as the default search engine or you can save Google as a Favourite in IE or a Bookmark in Firefox.

To set Google as the default home page in IE.
Open Internet Explorer then enter www.google.com when Google page opens then Click on Tools - Internet Options
In the General tab click Use current.
Now when you open IE then Google automatically opens.

To set Google as the default home page in Firefox.
Open Firefox then enter www.google.com when Google page opens then Click on Tools - Options
In the General tab click Use current pages.
Now when you open Firefox then Google automatically opens.

If you are using any other browsers then setting up Google as the default page is configures in a similar method.
