Anyone had trouble with a2k crashing their browser?

I'm using Firefox and A2K has crashed it 8-10 times (at least) in the past couple days.

Oddly enough, it usually is centered around the never ending word association game!

Anyone else experiencing technical difficulties? If you're using Firefox can you try the word association game for me?

Thanks!

Just did. No problems (Ff.3.6.9.) Exactly when and what crashes?

@jgweed,
Firefox gives me the 'error need to close' and closes all applications. It doesn't happen every time, and I believe it occurs when I click the reply button on Neverending...or that's what it did last and has done previously.

If I re-open Firefox and allow it to re-open a2k for me, then it will crash every time until I re-open everything BUT a2k, then open a2k manually. It's messing with me.

I've allowed it to send the report every time, so maybe Firefox will do something.

@dadpad,
Thanks, dadpad. I'm still XP, could perhaps be a requirement of crash?

Usually things aren't a2k's fault (far as I've followed over time).

I'm presently having trouble getting into fantasy football on yahoo. Sometimes yahoo shuts me off. All other stuff will work, with yahoo f/football not opening.

I figure it may be my computer and then I clear my cache and history, and sometimes that works, which may be a coincidence as most times it doesn't. I just wait a while.

Patient to Doctor: "It hurts when I bend my arm like this."
Doctor to patient: "Then don't bend your arm like that!"
Ba da Bing!

But I WANT to play Neverending! Confused

@ibstubro,
Oddly, I've experiences maybe a half dozen crashes yesterday and today. Seems like I've always been online at the time, but it's not a browser crash, and I can't say it's specifically while on a2k.

The screen goes black like a light were turned off, and there is nothing to do but hold down the power button and go through an abnormal start procedure.

@roger,
I HATE that...always afraid it'll glitch something important.

Run malwarebytes as a precaution.

Free version. It won't protect you, but by gourd it'll find the boogers!
