3.0b1 crash!

i tried 3.1b and it crashed at just start point, i click to restart firefox at the notification window, but got the same crash error message

Crash! Bang! Boom!

We're sorry, but Firefox hit an unexpected problem and crashed. We'll try to restore your tabs and windows when it restarts.

It's a Beta

It's a beta. Crashes will happen. Incidentally, what OS are you running on? What directory? Default profile or custom?

absolutely a beta will crash

absolutely a beta will crash sometimes but i have tried the FF 3.0b1 ( not portable one )before and i haven't got any problems with it. that's why i thought something about portable one..

im using win xp sp2. i installed it to my old FFP directory. In to FirefoxPortable directory ( as it comes by default ). then try to run it.. that's all i did..

Another point: i wander that will it use the old firefoxportable data and settings if i install in it and overwrite ? Or it will create a fully clean profile and settings etc..

a human never fails but stop trying...

Works fine here

It works just fine here on my XP production and test machines and on my Win 2K test machine. I haven't had a chance to fire up Vista yet.

As I asked before... what directory did you install to? And you weren't upgrading a Firefox Portable 2.x install were you?

i tried to upgrade a Firefox

i tried to upgrade a Firefox Portable 2.x to see if it will use my old settings and profile. Got the crash. then i install it on the Desktop in a FirefoxPortable dir.

well, that means it won't use my old profile for now. and why i got the crash..

thanks and sorry..

No upgrades yet

Yeah, I haven't written the upgrade code from 2.x yet. Just assumed people would install it side by side.

Works ok but

it left a folder called "Crash Reports" in my Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\ with 2 files in it: "UserID" and "InstallTime2007110904".

Anyone can confirm this????

I have the same issue

It will not let me into the program before it crashes. I had to delete it because it would crash after 14 seconds of either starting the program or restarting the program.

==A few days later after downloading Revision 2===

Alright! Issue resolved! (n.n)~b

Great job Firefox Portable crew!
