About 2 years ago, while using my previous PC, Internet Explorer suddenly stopped working.
I tried so many things to resolve this and nothing did, so I started using Firefox and have never looked back … until a few days ago!
I maintain a number of my own and client’s blogs using WordPress.
A couple of days ago, whenever I tried to add an image to a blog posting using the WordPress Image Uploader, Firefox just crashed.
I tried again. Same thing happened.
I re-booted the Pc and tried again. Same thing happened.
I tried in IE (with my latest PC) and it worked fine. No probs.
So I was now optimistic and tried again using Firefox. CRASH!
I found the problem – it’s the Google Gears add-on for Firefox.
I simply disabled Google Gears and now everything is working just fine.
While in Firefox, simply go to:
Tools > Add-ONs, select Gears and ‘Disable’ it.
I don’t know why the problem is occurring but there is some conflict between WordPress, Firefox and the Google Gear add-on.
Just thought I’d let you know!
