View Full Version : Problems While Browsing Tankspot

When I change forums, I get an error from Firefox stating it's encountered a problem and needs to terminate. I can usually bring it back up using the "restore previous session" option and then it's ok for a while.

It's only happening when navigating Tankspot and it isn't consistent. It's happened four times this morning already. Sometimes I can jump around the site fine and then every once in a while, it shuts me down.

Anybody have any ideas?

My opinion isn't the end all be all of the issue but... switch to Google Chrome :P. It's a better browser.

Google Chrome doesn't ever crash Tankspot for me
therefore: Google Chrome is better

And I guess I'm a bit confused about which forum it should have been in. I guess I figured it wasn't about WoW and it wasn't about tanking, so the off topic forum would be the appropriate place to post it. I do apologize for my actions. I didn't mean to cause you any kind of inconvenience.

Compare the cons of Firefox to cons of Chrome - While Firefox can crash more, its more secure and offers better privacy.


Also on a side note, Chrome is more resource hogging than Firefox...
