I should probably also mention that neither browser has ever crashed on me on FreeBSD, and I use both extensively. I've only been a FreeBSD user for a few months, but I've never had issues with either browser crashing whatsoever. I'm also running on a 2GHz Athlon and 512MB RAM. Mozilla tends to be a memory hog - maybe it's an issue with memory and swapping? - jt _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
