Computer woes

Ok, maybe someone can help me out here...

I'm running Win XP, with the latest version of Firefox. Every once in awhile, on Yahoo or MySpace (and once at Schlock Mercenary), Firefox committed seppuku and shut down. When it starts happening, I can foget about checking whatever site I was trying to view.

Anybody have a suggestion?

You're running Firefox 3? I have only heard of that with version 2. In fact, that's why I switched to Safari.
You're on Myspace? Email me, and I'll send a friend request.

Same problem answer is Flash is messing with your system. Causing Firefox to generate an error and be shut down by winders. Very very annoying when it happens to you when a flash based ad on the web pops up and causes the error while you are typing a blogpost or a coment.

Solution, I still haven't found one, as it happens in both IE and firefox, version 2 and version 3 of firefox for me. I tried having apple quicktime take over the flash duties but it slows my system down so much that it just wasn't worth it.
