Problems with site, using Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.1

I've been having issues with Mozilla's Firefox browser and IC. I know it's IC because it only happens when surfing, directing to and loading up ICMag. For example, just now my browser crashed 3 times before I could come here. The weird thing is that this didn't happen before when I first joined IC. It is something recent that has been happening over the past week.

While this isn't the end of the world (just restart the browser!) it can get to be annoying. Is anybody else having this problem? Is it just me? Anybody know what I can do, if the error is on my end, to resolve this issue?

Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.1
WinXP Professional w/SP2 (currently updated)
Zonealarm Firewall

That very well could be it. I haven't updated flash in a long time.

Sorry bout posting this in the wrong forum.

Could any mods move it for me? Thanks all. I gotta run and get my learn on. I'll update flash as soon as I get back and see if that helps.

I think you are on to something! I remember seeing that banner this morning, right before I had to restart my firefox. Doesn't lock up or anything. Any links you click on, do not open. Restart does fix it but you loose all those (MANY) tabs you had open! Not able to find a magus banner now to test the flash update.

Decided to give you guys an update. I updated flash to 8.0 and installed shockwave. I clicked back and forth until I encountered the Magus ad, and everything is go. Thanks all for the help!

theres quite a few threads about that screwy banner and they say they have it fixed but they don't
something is buggered up when a banner causes a browser to crash
i know i know update your flash
thing is you shouldn't have to
it should work properly with common browsers that are in general use without updateing anything
just my opinion
nothing more

fwiw

It has already been said by the ADMINISTRATOR that the banners are being downgraded to Flash version 5. This will be done within a day or so.

Until then, crawl back in your hole.
hey cupcake
you think that maybe i didn't read that?
maybe because i kept getting crashed
maybe because i was actually out living life?
and? wtf? are you supposed to be anyway?
maybe you need to get out more
untill then, crawl back in your own damn hole

btw thx to whomever is making the adjustment/downgrade

fwiw
