Interesting and annoying problem that has just started, when ever I start a download in firefox it crashes.
Why is it doing this?

Could be an addon. Choose FF safe mode in the menu, see if it does the same thing

How far into the download does it crash? does it vary at all or is it instant, as soon as the download begins?

I only have 4 addons
It only takes one addon to make a booboo.

ok that would be a no, might be time to go to chrome, is there a thing like stylish for it?
@speedy: haha um (nedkelly thinks about this for a while) yes

Chrome uses extensions. From V7 I think.

Am using chrome from now on. And wow it is different from the last time I used it.
Oh and just a fyi there is Stylish for Chrome and Erayd's script works.

I had the same issue with Firefox on the netbook (never with my others)
I fixed it by going Tools>Options>Privacy then tick Clear history when Firefox closes.
Then open the settings for that and tick Download History (or untick the others).
This resolved the lock ups in my case, perhaps it will for you too.

Thanks, KarameaDave will try that when I get home tonight.
(Wish I could leave my laptop on and do it now but cant)
