I'm on Vista and Firefox 3.5 is running fine. The only problem I had was that one of my favourite extensions (Abduction for screen capturing) wasn't supported. It has since been updated and I've had no problems.

"Why does it seem like most forum topics involving software problems, all seem to have at least one person who assumes that the operating system has anything to do with the problem. Especially since that assumption is usually proven wrong?"

why do you assume theyre making assumptions? especially when if i had said mac or linux you probably wouldnt have given a shit because you defend vista like a little fanboy every time someone says something negative about it.

if you could actually read, i said that it was running fine on linux and xp on all of my computers(5 total). now i dont use vista so i was asking/suggesting that that could be a problem. especially when yes, the os can have everything to do with software running or not. especially when dealing with 64bit and 32bit architecture differences (if youre running a 64bit os).

How can anyone be a fanboy of vista ? 7 is not to bad, and XP is not too bad but Vista????

I run ubuntu/XP on my main box/ win 7 on another box and Vista on my laptop (soon to be formatted and XP put on). Firefox 2 on my other PC's never crashes, i may revert to it on my main box.

I've been using Firefox for ages, it seems to be the most stable browser for me. I used Safari 4 (windows) for a while, but that was shocking - it crashes nearly all the time.

Firefox has been the most crash happy browser I've ever used. It got so bad on my new machine that I've switched to Safari and haven't had a crash since (32bit XP). Never had a crash for Safari, Firefox or Opera in OSX I must say.

When I used Firefox a good while ago (and for a short time, as you'll see) it crashed without fail at least once every three times I opened it. It was probably my machine, but since other browsers worked acceptably on it, it left a bad taste in my mouth. I'm just not a fan in general of Firefox. It feels clunky (and crashy) to me. Not to mention the fact that almost every experienced computer user (minus the Opera, Safari and Chrome users, still in the minority) act like it's such a godsend. Bandwagon thing, I guess, because I don't see it.

Do you think it could be less about being a "fanboy" and more about putting ignorance in it's place? I've never had a single Vista related issue, so God forbid I should reassure people against others who seem to think it's rattled with nothing but problems, that such a fabrication is absurd.

I think the point he was making was that it could have been a vista issue - he didn't say it was one.

Silverfire Vista is slow even on Core 2 duo (laptop) or Core 2 Quad (my desktop) compared to XP/Win 7 or Ubuntu. Plus its 99% useless if you are a hardware developer. Not one of 6 tools i use works with it . N.b. before you ask I do have lots of ram on both machines...

Win 7 no probs so far touchwood, but vista . I also detest Office 2007 (why oh why change Office???) but thats another story...

I totally agree with Hagar, Vista is the worst OS ever and only losers use it

I've had problems with 64bit Vista on our new PC. Explorer locked up twice, but I do like that it realises its locked up and reopens it unlike XP. I've never had a problem with either Vista or XP on my macs but I am using some very well built drivers for them. S'all in the drivers.
Also hmmm.

Ok now it sounds like we're having a go at Vista..
Can we please keep to the topic and give negative opinions about Firefox instead

exactly

and on topic. if firefox is giving you trouble try out Flock, Chrome, or Safari. Flock is a mozilla based browser very similar to mozilla. Chrome is the fastest browser. and Safari is sexy.

Only crashed on me once and that was earlier today.

So far every new version of firefox has been noticeably faster than the previous.
