Firefox reports a crash after every close ??

I am using 2 windows 7 Ultimate, 7077 rigs

On both computers, firefox 3.0.9 shoots a crash dialog after everytime I close it (or most times..)

Both firefoxes are addon free, all stock.

Please if anyone has a solution for my problem it would be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

You may have an 'extension' that is causing the problem, such as your antivirus, or something else.
Here's a list of things to check against:

All clear, Both firefoxes are addon free, all stock... I am using Bitdefender Antivirus, didn't have that problem in vista with the same setup.

Thanks though..

I have the same thing. It doesn't seem troublesome though. I might just reinstall FF or something.

Thanks for the link, but it didn't solve the problem
I am using FF 3.0.0.9, is there any reason why not use the 3.5 ? Is it just as safe ?

Any other solution ?

If you haven't purchase BitDefender, uninstall it, then download Avira Antivirus
Avira AntiVir Personal - FREE Antivirus

See if Firefox crashes now. BTW, I have Avira (Premium Security Suite) and FF3.09 . Firefox doesn't crash upon closing, when I use it.

Nice observation Jacee ! I uninstalled BD and now FF is running smooth.
I paid for it though, and I really like it, so before I put that avira, will it help to right install it in Vista SP2 compatability mode or is it a waste of time ?

Thanks !
