I am a long time user of the ZA and Firefox, but with the latest ZASS version (8.0.400.020) I cannot use the 3.x Firefox anymore. Symptoms are: sudden losses of internet connections in the middle of the work in Firefox and random hangs of the Firefox process at the app exit (then visible only in the TaskManager - I had to manually kill that zombie before I could start a new instance of the browser...).
I had not such problems before (even if I saw that others had similar problems especially in the Vista...). To exclude other influences I tried almost everything: uninstalled all Firefox plugins & Java, the Firefox itself (cleared all Firefox remnants - RegKeys, files and folders before reinstalling, also tried several Firefox 3.x versions - 3.0.10, 3.0.11, 3.5b99), "clean" uninstall & reinstall of the ZASS 8.0.400.020. Nothing helps.
So I have reverted the ZASS back to the previous 8.0.298.035 and - so far, so good...
Anyone with a similar problem?
Any idea how to fix that?
