    Firefox Crashes

    Lately I've had this problem where every time I go to google images and search an image firefox crashes immediately. Anyone else have this problem and do you know a solution

    That is strange, i have never heard of this problem. Does opening up regular Google do anything or any other Google service for that matter?

    Have you searched Mozilla's site to see if other people are having the same problem?


    Edit: Also, I assume you're using FF4?

    Do you just crash or do you sometimes get redirected to a different link? It could be a virus. I would run Malwarebytes, do a quick scan and see what comes up.

    No, it crashes. I search an image and it comes up, but then FF closes out and I get the message saying that FF has crashed

    It's AVG Safe Search doing it. Just disable it, and you should be fine.

    Click on the orange Firefox button in the top left corner, then go to Add-Ons (has the blue puzzle piece next to it). Once that tab opens, find AVG Safe Search in the list, then click on Disable. It should prompt you to restart. Do that, then try a search and see what happens.
