I have seen significant Firefox instability on a single Windows 7 system
that I help someone with routinely.
It will often freeze and stop responding, usually on first tab open, to the
point that I gave him a desktop shortcut with a shortcut key, that kills any
Firefox process when pressed.
It doesn't seem to matter if the system is newly booted, has been running
for a while, or if this is the first FF session of the day, or the third, or
the second locking up one in a row.
I can't find any pattern to it, except that it seems to happen more often
Latest Firefox, and updated Win 7 (as updated as it gets, anyway).
It is a pro-bono remote support situation, so I can't really do much to
diagnose and deal with this, but I just wanted to point out at least one
"complaint" with Firefox on Win 7.
