Problem with two web browser

October 15, 2010 7:31am CST
I use two web browser one is internet explorer and the other is mozilla firefox. The problem is when I used both browser at the same time, mozilla firefox will send a crash report and internet explorer will send "this tab has been recovered. I don't know what are the reasons behind this but I noticed that every time I used these two, this problem will occur. When I used one web browser at the same, I didn't encounter this. Are the conflicts when a user will use two browser at the same time? Is anyone encountered the same as mine?

It has something to do with the way a browser handles memory resources. The later versions of Firefox seem to suffer from memory mismanagement leading to crashes. It is so bad that the Firefox team has disabled automatic updates. Not all browsers are prone to crashes when opened at the same time with at least another browser. I did encounter a similar incident several times in the past. That is one of the reasons why nowadays I rarely use Firefox. May the Firefox team fix this problem.

i ahve installed on my pc 2 browsers and never gave me problems like that in the tab system so you can try to re-install the browser and so in this way you can verify if it was a casual problem or updating your browser as well..may be in old configuraion can give problems...

No, this sounds like a coincidence or a conflict of other (perhaps web-based) software, I've ran four browsers simultaneously before without issue.

I also face this problem, but not regular. I have stopped the add-on not required on internet explorer and I use Mozilla in safe mode. You also try this it will surely help. Also try to clean cookies after a week time.

Perhaps it might be better to install a different Browser, such as Chrome, Opera, Avant or safari and then if you want to continue using different browsers at the same time, then experiment with the different combinations until you find the best for you. May i ask why you are using Two different browsers at the same time ? Surely with tabbed browsing this isn't necessary anymore.

I have problem only when I started Mozilla then it becomes crash sometimes. I think we have to wait for its new version until comes in market. Because this version have some problem because I have also face this problem sometimes in my computer and I checked everything why this happen but I don’t get any solution.
