    For the last hour or two, when trying to view one of my blogs, Firefox will crash before the status bar says it has completed the request and before the blog shows up on the page. My other WP blogs are unaffected. Any ideas?

    The blog I need help with is eyesonportugal.wordpress.com.

    http://eyesonportugal.wordpress.com is the blog in question.

    I don’t see anything unusual on that blog. Have you considered doing the Cookie Dance? Log out, clear browser cache and cookies, and do a full restart.

    Thanks. I just did that one second ago and tried again…same problem. If anyone knows how to tag this for Support to view, that would be great. In the meantime, I’ll email them.

    Firefox on my machine works just fine with your site, and there are no unusual errors or warnings that come up.

    If you have any add-ons installed in Firefox, disable all of them and then restart FF and try again.

    I uninstalled my one and only add-on, which I initially installed yesterday but still the same problem occurs. There is one odd thing about the blog’s clicks section. It says that today users clicked ‘these links’ from my blog, yet three of the links listed aren’t even on my blog (no one from those seemingly legitimate blogs linked on the clicks section has ever commented on my blog, nor am I linked to from their blogs). Not sure if that has anything to do with anything but thought I’d mention it.

    Enough updating here (I hope). I’ll wait for Support to respond to my contact form request.

    I updated my iTunes, of all things, and the computer restarted and violá, problem solved.

    That’s so bizarre. On the other hand, iTunes is an actively malevolent program. I hate it passionately and would be happy to hear something else was its fault.

    It was likely the restarting of the computer that fixed the issue.

    NO, it was Steve Jobs going, “we’ve bent that blogger to our will. now we shall allow him some progress. Loosen up his chain.”

    I got a Firefox update today to 3.6.12 and my browser has been repeatedly crashing.

    There is one odd thing about the blog’s clicks section. It says that today users clicked ‘these links’ from my blog, yet three of the links listed aren’t even on my blog (no one from those seemingly legitimate blogs linked on the clicks section has ever commented on my blog, nor am I linked to from their blogs). Not sure if that has anything to do with anything but thought I’d mention it.

    There are 3 possibilities you may not have considered.
    (1) If you have “possibly related links” activated here > Appearnce > Extras the links clicked could have been among those.
    (2) If you use Zemanta the links clicked could have been among those.
    (3) WordPress.com does run advertising on our blogs so the links clicked could have been among those.
