[K12OSN] Re: K12OSN] Firefox crashes

I've got zero problems with the page. I'm on firefox k12ltsp 6
and I did it with both a via and i810 chipset. 

I didn't see it in previous posts (forgive me if I overlooked it) but
how much memory do your clients have? What screen resolution are you

800x600 generally needs at least 64mb of ram
1024x768 will need 128mb to browse a variety of javascript and flash
My clients had at least 128mb.
