My Firefox always crashes when using Google (search / mail). Tried uninstalling plugins, deleting and installing Firefox again but nothing helps. Any ideas?

Any sort of error log you can give us? – Simon Sheehan Feb 20 '12 at 1:47
Do any problems occur when using IE, Chrome, etc? Honestly I got tired of Firefox crashing on me randomly too so I switched to chrome. What version of FF? – Paperlantern Feb 20 '12 at 2:30
Elaborate on what you mean by "crash." – LawrenceC Feb 20 '12 at 2:30
Have you tried clearing the FF cache (so files google assumed are the right versions get reloaded). – jdh Feb 20 '12 at 12:28

Have you tried running Firefox in safe mode? If that still causes a crash, it's time to reinstall Firefox.
