I’ve been having some problems lately with Firefox randomly locking up (this is on OSX 10.3). It’s been driving me bonkers. I’ve tried doing some troubleshooting on it and I’ve been *fairly* certain that it’s related to one or more of my plugins, but I haven’t been able to figure out which one specifically. Until now that is. So far I am *fairly* certain I’ve fixed the problems by taking the following steps:
- Disable the “notify me of updates” feature in switchproxy.
- Disable the periodic check for updates for firefox and for extensions and themes.
