Soild Alternative to FireFox

Is there a better alternative to FireFox v22.0 ? There are so many frequent crashes. I gave Firefox, nearly six months more time, in hopes Mozilla would fix all the issues, that hasn't happened. When I customize a toolbar, restart firefox, the toolbar isn't the same as it was before restarting. I have to many add-ons to completely drop firefox, I need an alternative.

Firefox 21 ?
Internet explorer 9-10 ?
Chrome ?
Pick one which ever works the best you should keep.

Opera 15? If you don't mind not having a bookmarks bar.

If you are used to firefox, Pale Moon may be an excellent choice for you. It's built on firefox (v.20 atm), and you can import your settings directly. Also comes in an x64 flavor, which the actual firefox does not.

I completely agree with this. I see no use for more than Adobe flash player, Java. I just recently started using a password manager too. (I use Chrome not Firefox) IMO ditch Firefox and use Chrome, it has a much newer and up to date interface. But opinions are just opinions, choose what you like and experiment. You've used Firefox, try Opera, Chrome, Safari, and whatever browsers are out there now days. It shouldn't take long to see which one suits you the best.

You may have adware that's changing your settings.
Download AdWareCleaner AdwCleaner Download
or from here Téléchargements - Outils de Xplode - AdwCleaner
to your desktop
1.Right-click on adwcleaner.exe and select Run As Administrator to launch the application.
2.Click on Delete button.
3.Confirm each time with OK.
4.Your computer will be rebooted automatically. A text file will open after the restart. Please post the content of that logfile in your reply.
Note: You can find the logfile at C:\AdwCleaner[Sn].txt as well - n is the order number.

I'd rather PM it to you if you want, then paste a log file the size that it is ?
