|Running 14.0.1 with usually about a dozen tabs about at a time, works fine. |

|Firefox has had a progressive problem with memory leaks that seem to never get fixed.|
I only ever use it anymore for eBay related stuff and that's only because eBay hasn't gotten off their ass and updated things to work properly with Chrome --- 3 years later.

|I just recently had the same problem with firefox. While a reboot fixed the consistent crashing, chrome doesn't make me reboot my computer so I'm using it now.|

|I rebooted, it's still crashed 30+ times today over video. |

|Sounds like problems with Flash. |

|I've been having problems with it as well. It's been giving me a lot of "redirect.ha"s whenever I go to certain sites, yours for example. It's pissing me the hell off cause I don't know how to fix it.|

That sounds more like a DNS issue than something that FF is doing.
1. START > RUN > type "cmd"
2. type "ipconfig /flushdns"
If after flushing your DNS cache the issue persists than its possible your ISP is using a crappy DNS nameserver to resolve web address queries. For a list of free alternatives see this site:
EDIT: The above is predicated on the assumption that your PC is not infected with malware which if it is, the above will more than likely not resolve your issue.

|In the past 2 weeks, Firefox has suddenly gotten a LOT worse. I am pretty sure it's flash-related, but I use chrome and flash is fine.|
I think their last update started it. It's horrible, and crashes every hour for me. So I'm now using Chrome.

|I can`t even use it for work. It`s got major memory leakage as over time it will consume nearly a gig of memory and start to slow horribly. Such a shame. I hope they fix it.|
