I keep having major issues with Firefox freezing up. When I try to enter any text into the search bar or text on a page. Is this a Firefox issue that can be fixed? It is really hard to do anything online until I get this fixed. Any tips or suggestions?

This occurs frequently and I have faced similar problem before. After series of research and browsing, I found the reason behind crashing of Firefox browser. The main reason behind crashing is plug-in that you have installed. If you have more than one version of a plug-in installed your browser will keep crashing. For example installing both Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 12.1 and Adobe Shockwave for Director Netscape plug-in, version 12.0.3.133

If your Mozilla Firefox keeps on freezing, first, try updating it to the latest version. Download the free version of Revo Uninstaller and install it. Once installed, start Revo Uninstaller then select your Mozilla Firefox among the applications and click “Uninstall.” Follow the normal uninstall process. When uninstall is complete, click “Scan” to scan your computer for any leftover files and then delete everything it finds.

This will remove everything the program created on your computer. When it is complete, close Revo Uninstaller then download the latest Mozilla Firefox and install it. See if it works. If this doesn’t work, try starting the browser in Safe Mode. Start Mozilla Firefox then click “Help” and then select “Restart with Add-ons Disabled.” Click “Restart” to continue.

In the “Firefox Safe Mode” dialog, select “Start in Safe Mode.” Now, see if the browser is working properly. If this works, close Mozilla Firefox and open it again. Next, click “Tools” then select “Add-ons” or press CTRL + SHIFT + A. In the “Add-ons Manager” tab, disable all extensions then re-enable them one at a time.

Once you located which add-on is causing the problem, disable it permanently or uninstall it from the browser.
