I recently upgraded to firefox 18.0 on my windows 7 pro computer.  Since then, the browser constantly crashed.  This has happened while using 17 different websites containing both multimedia and static content

Any suggestions?

It's most likely Flash that's causing the problem. I've found that Flash and Firefox don't often get along that well. Running 17 websites at once is asking a lot of your system, too.

The first thing you should do is go to adobe.com and get the latest Flash player, or just disable it completely.

I would check your installation and plugins.. Get rid of any needless plugins.  You may need to check for updates to Flash or Java at a site like FileHippo.com as they have a cool little tool to check for updates.  You may need to purge your cache, cookies, temp files, etc.

Last resort, start fresh and uninstall and re-install Firefox.

I know there are a lot of things to look at, but I have had to go down this trail too.  :)

HTH,

Kent

deklinm--Firefox has its own add-on checker built in
Click Tools|Add Ons|click Plug-Ins at left.  You will be told what are up to date and not.  That includes Flash Plug-Ins.
