    "Crashed browser trying to download, bad link maybe?"

    January 10, 2013  |   By ritchie58


    The most customizable browser there is.


    The link to the installer kept crashing Firefox 17.0.1.


    I tried three times to download the installer from here and every time my Firefox browser crashed. I was able to download the newest installers for Adobe's flash player and Glary Utilities to update with no problems just seconds before. I was able to download the installer directly from with no problems. Anyone else with the Forefox browser already installed seeing this?

    @ ritchie58 Several things: First I would recommend you download from the Mozilla Firefox web site, and second I would not download 17.0.1 but the new version 18.0. Make sure you clean everthing Firefox 17.0.1 from your machine first including the download, program, and profile folders. Then run a file cleaner and a registry cleaner, if you have them, to clean out any residule leftovers of version 17.0.1. Start fresh with a download of the newest version, and then check the md5 checksum to insure it's accurate and that you don't get a bad download.
