Dear friends,

I am using the extensions Adblock PLus, ToCyrillic 0.5.11, DownThemAll! and, since FF/BD constantly crashes, I now also use SessionManager 0.4.3.  As far as I can tell these are all updated and FF/BD compatible extensions (I am using Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv: Gecko/20070602 Ubuntu/deltad-security Firefox/

My huntch is that extensions are to blame.  For example, when I have all the extensions enabled  FF/BD does not even start but complains about "error launching browser window: no XBL binding for browser" so each time I have to comment out one extension at least in /home/andrei/.mozilla/firefox/r936t724.default/extensions.ini

Here is what I have there now:
#Extension0=/usr/lib/firefox/extensions/langpack- address@hidden
(Notice the commented out language pack)

Konqueror is a fantastic browser, alas it does not work well with gmail and not at all with google's blog (blogspot).  It does, however, spellcheck while I type which FF/BD does not.  Nor does Konqueror have the extensions I need.  I tried Epiphany (which is a new version of Galeon, right?) and which I like a lot, but which tends to crash almost as much as FF/BD (but unlike Konqueror, Epiphany does work with the Google stuff and seems to be fully AJAXed).

I would definitely settle for Konqueror if not for the google issue.  So fixing my friggin FF/BD is still something I would very much want to achieve.

I should add that I installed gNewSense on my laptop, but with no extensions on FF/BD and it does not crash so I really suspect that the extensions are the cause for this.

Anyway - any advice/suggestions are more than welcome!

Kind regards,
