Adbrite Makes Firefox Crashed?

Some days ago, I’ve just joined with AdBrite to get some bucks from internet. After the script was installed, suddenly my Firefox Portable crashed and needs to be closed when I accessed this blog homepage. Sigh, at the moment, I didn’t realize that the cause is the AdBrite script. But after it crashed several times, I started suspecting it.

Recently I get more facts for my idea about that script. When I accessed another blog, http://diary.satchdesign.com/, which also has AdBrite script installed, the browser crashed again. Oh my..

Because of that, I didn’t use my Firefox Portable, which is using original Firefox version 3.0.1, to access those blogs. I had to go back to my old habit for using Flock 1.2.5, which is using Firefox 2.0.0.16.

I’ve tried to Google about that, but I don’t find any similar case. So I try to find it by myself. Hmm, after some “experiments” I found that one of the add-ons, AVG Safe Search 8.0, is the problem. It’s not installed on my Portable FF, but on the original Firefox on the PC I use for working.

After the add-on is disabled and the browser restarted, it never crashed again. But err… I found this problem only occurs on my PC. Why? I don’t know… 😀

Trying The Folks: Flock

Setelah membaca postingan simbok yang ini, saya jadi kepengen nyobain Flock, yang katanya dibikin pake teknologi Mozilla itu. Setelah saya unduh di websitenya dan saya install. Woh.. Bener-bener rasa Firefox!!

So, what is the difference? Just at the appearance?

Dan saya pun mulai menggerayangi browser itu… Hmm, lumayan, seperti yang ditulis simbok, ternyata Blog Editornya bekerja dengan baik. Tapi itu ketika saya coba di akun (?) saya yang di blogspot (oh, yes, I have). Ketika saya coba di blog saya yang pake hostingan sendiri, entah kenapa kok error terus. Katanya ndak isa login pake username sama password yang saya isi. Lha dalah??

Kemudian saya coba juga Feed Sidebarnya… Hmm, lumayan juga ini, ndak perlu pake Google Reader buat baca feed. Sayangnya… lantaran PC yang saya pakai di kantor ini di-Beku-Dalam-kan, setiap saya restart, feed-feed yang sudah saya add jadi hilang semua. Aneh, padahal folder instalasi sudah saya alihkan ke drive yang tidak di-Beku-Dalam-kan, tapi kok tetep ilang? Ada yang bisa bantu?

Jadi kesimpulannya, saya memang belum mencoba seluruh fitur yang ditawarkan Flock. Tapi dari dua fitur di atas yang telah saya pakai, sebenarnya juga bisa saya lakukan di Firefox, alias mbikin Firefox rasa Flock. Ya, cari aja addon-nya. Kalau mau blog editor, ada ScribeFire. Kalau mau feed reader, ada NewsFox (serta banyak yang lain-lain). Meski begitu, saya seneng pake browser ini, entah kenapa…
