Windows 7: Google Search causing crash

Google Search causing crash

All of a sudden, Google search or side bar links, are causing Firefox to crash.

This happens in Regular or Safe Mode.
When using Yahoo Search, there is no problem, so I know Firefox is working properly.

I updated to Firefox 15 - same problem
When using Chrome, Google search is fine.



Any ideas?

Thanks,

Paul

Since nobody replied, I guess nobody had this problem with Firefox 15.

I went back to Firefox 11 and the problem is solved.

So you go to google.com and search and your browser decides to crash?
What about internet explorer does it also happen here?
If not you may want to check your add ons and probably delete/uninstall them at least for testing purposes.
Also create a new firefox profile and delete(backup if you want) your older profile. Creating a new Firefox profile on Windows - MozillaZine Knowledge Base
Sorry i am not a Firefox regular user i prefer IE9

It only crashed on Firefox 15.
I ran it is Safe Mode - add-ons disabled - same problem.
Going back to Firefox 11 solved the problem.

IE9 and Chrome - no problem.
