    My Firefox crashes nearly daily, especially when scrolling in (google) maps or having a couple of sites open.
    What I want to know is,
    is this a problem that many users have, a Firefox problem ?
    Otherwise it could be cased by my security add-ons, which lower down its power
    thanks

    Have you tried backing up your settings, remove all plugins, and reinstalling?

    Had a problem with Android, incompatible and insurmountable java error. Chucked the phone in the end.

    I did not try it without plugins and add-ons yet, but I did reinstalling and it also happen with former versions.
    It's a bit difficult to try something which not permanently happens.
    Activated add-ons are
    Better Privacy
    Facebook Blocker
    Kaspersky Protection
    No Script
    Lightshot
    Reminder Fox
    and that unliked anti advert one
    I will try it without,
    but my interest is if others have the same problem, or is the problem my fault.

    I'd definitely be deactivating all of those for starters and see what happens.

    I've been having major problems with Chorme doing the same thing recently, freezes up totally and just refuses to respond. This happens on my work and home PC, it's bizarre.

    funny, made wild map scrolling and found bunkers

    had no crash yet, without add-ons
    ------
    didn't get it crashing now doing the same having them activated,
    but it is definately much slower
