Why dose Firefox just stop working. When it happen have to restart Firefox it done 5 times today and I don't when it might do it. What can I do to fix it?
I just like Slackware because I think it teach you about Linux to build packages where Ubuntu is like Windows you just install programs you want.

you could enable crash reporter?

If not, is it a particular site you visit or a site that needs something like Java?

It the one that came with Porteus 3.1 Mate x86_64 the hardware is the same when I use Porteus 31 Mate i486. I haven't upgrade Firefox just the flashplayer-plugin.

EDIT: I should have said it like you EXIT out of Firefox but I didn't do it.

After I did a upkernel-3.18.25 the problem seem to went away. Not sure if that fix it but for now no problem with Firefox stop working.
