Seriously, though, I have seen this on the Firefox Help forum. Too large a history.dat file can cause crashes. Not the same as the cache, rridgely.

Huh, I thoght that was an error when he said it was the history. I just figured he meant cache because why would having a large history matter?(plus ff should clean it in x amount of days).

 

I use my comp for days on end and have never had ff crash because my history file gets to big. Oh well, I guess its a bug I havent encountered yet.

me either, the only time FF has consistently crashed on me was when I was using the 1.5 beta and it would crash on me when i went on Myspace.

It's not something that normally occurs, it happens if you visit a website that's been hacked to make this happen. It's a kind of lame exploit. You can avoid it with the NoScript extension, it has a function to truncate long URLs. Or just clear your history, like I do, after every session.

 

<edit> I should add that this problem is fixed in Firefox 1.5.0.1, currently available as a release candidate.
