Firebug and FireFox Crashing when Viewing Pages on my Site that Contain Google Ads

Posted by: Imar Spaanjaars at Saturday, February 24, 2007 12:15:53 PM in: Imar's Blogs

Update!! 02-27-2007 - I just got an e-mail from my team member Marcel who pointed me to this article: http://forums.asp.net/thread/1501276.aspx

Funny thing is, I was already using the code from that article to fix an issue with Ajax RC. Turns out that with the RTM release this code is no longer necessary, and additionally, now seems to crash FireFox when using Firebug. I removed the offending JavaScript and everything is fine now. Thank you Marcel!!

If you still have issues browsing this site with Firefox, please let me know.

Over the past couple of weeks, I received a number of e-mails from people reporting that their FireFox browser crashed when browsing my site.
