Hello Ken,

One of the main sites for me is sourceforge.  I have been visiting it
regularly and with the adds that they have and the scripts that they have,
when scrolling down to actually get to one of the downloads, that is when
firefox crashed for me.  Sometimes it was crashing 4 times in a row on the
same file.

Regards,

Christopher.
