Does your browser crash?

I'm using Quicktime 7. 2 - Firefox 2.0.0.7 - Flash 9,0,47,0 - on 4 different systems (different configurations), Firefox 2.0.0.3 and Mozilla 1.7.7 at work, nothing happens. If anybody finds any solution, please let me know.

UPDATE:
Jeff (THANKS!!!!) posted this in the comment section:

...actually there's a new quicktime bug that crashes all browsers, that happens every time it updates itself. try this...go into..

quicktime
quicktime preferences
advanced
direct X
disable enable directDraw accelleration, secondary monitors, and video accelleration.

all should be well.

So, I asked around and no one is having browser crashing problems except my students (which sucks because you guys really need to be able to read the posts). Here is a reply I got from a "tester" which might help:

They can try emptying their cache.

So, give that a try.
