While we’re on the topic of crashing web browsers…

Nearly. Every. Time. I. Close. Chrome…  Yes, I’ve done the researching, and the attempted fixing, and uninstalling/trashing data/reinstalling etc etc etc… if it were Internet Explorer I was having trouble with I’d probably get it fixed in short order…

… yeah, IE doesn’t crash – it just hangs.



@ PC Tech1 – invariably easily fixed. Test 1: running IE in no add-ons mode to see if the problem goes away. Test 2: Empty / nuke cache. Test 3: Make sure cache setting is not set to “automatically”. Test 4: Make sure cache is not to large or small. Test 5: An overlarge autocomplete cache can cause issues, especially when filling in forms. Delete.
