Mozilla crash after Firefox update


I have update Firefox from 2.1.1? to 3.6.9., on Mepis 7.
Firefox opens, but crashes after a few minutes.

Any suggestions?

Hardware: IBM Thinkpad T41.

P.S.:
Just made another test: Hadn't crashed, just recently, seems to be stable, at them moment. Will report later again, if crash happens again, or not.

If again crashed. Send the crash report with your email ID. Firefox crash analyzing team would give you better solution/root cause.

Thanks, will do so.

Crashed again, with the message from "Mozilla Crash Reporter":

"Firefox had a problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts.

To help us diagnose and fix the problem, you can send us a crash report."

Report submitted successfully.

Java Runtime Environment

I just upgraded Firefox 3.6.9 within Mepis 7.

I am trying to download some pictures in Auctiva.com, but it states, that I must get the "Java Runtime Environement". I am not sure, how to proceed.

Hardware: Laptop: IBM Thinkpad T41.

Why MEPIS 7 not MEPIS 8.0? (Both use KDE 3.5.x.)

MEPIS 7 is pretty old & I suspect there is a subtle problem w/ Firefox 3.6.9. Can you revert to Firefox 2.1.1?

Side issue: is Firefox really necessary? -- I'm sure you're used to it & like it, but what functionality does it provide that Konqueror does not?

Thanks.
I find Firefox nicer to work with than the Konqueror. Hower, Konqueror isn't solving the issue either, because it request an update, too.

I am only trying to fix the system, until I will convert to the latest version of Aurora Linux (former Eeebuntu).

Reverting to Firefox 2.1.1? That is what I had before, and did not work properly.

Given the problems you are having, is this necessary?

So, why not just do this now?

BTW, have you tested your laptop w/ an Aurora/Eeebuntu live CD (I assume that there is one).

I thought you were going to replace the old, out-of-date, unsupported MEPIS 7 w/ a current Aurora/Eeebuntu. Why keep frustrating yourself trying to make something work whose repositories are gone?
