Does it give any error messages?

Yeah... you could clear your cache and cookies in FF. I am running 3.0.7 right this minute with no issues. Generally if it were an issue with the Shack, it would affect all users with FF.

It could be an intermittent bug in FF.

Thanks for the suggestions guys

Re: Firerfox crashing when entering the shack?

The other things to try are download the latest video drivers and if Vista has a driver rollback feature, like XP, then restore it to a date prior to when it started crashing.
Also I use Superantispyware, free for home users, and it has picked up things which other programs have missed.

Re: Firerfox crashing when entering the shack?

Well, I've tried everything I can think of including what you have suggested. I rolled back the laptop to Sunday (everything worked then) but still no fix Firefox is still crashing. I'm not sure what else to try. Should I roll it back even farther?

What I have done,
defragmented hard drive,
ran spybot search & destroy,
ran AVG,
Ran Ad aware,
installed older version of Firefox
and rolled back Vista to earlier date
