I have the following MyDSL extensions:

I also made the upgrade to Flash Player 9 as described at

But I keep having problems with Firefox at times.  Sometimes, I have to reload the MyDSL extensions in order to get Firefox to open.  Often, Firefox is very unstable and crashes whenever I try to do anything (like type something in).  Any time Firefox is unstable, the stock Firefox 1.0.6 is unstable as well.

What's going on here?

Current cheatcodes:
kernel /boot/linux24 root=/dev/hda1 quiet vga=normal noacpi noapm nodma noscsi frugal home=hda3 opt=hda3 restore=hda3 root=hda3

How much ram do you have? Keep in mind that on a typical harddrive-installed system the Firefox cache is written to harddrive, but in a typical DSL system it is written to RAM. If you reduce the size of your cache, or use a persistent home, or link your firefox cache to a directory on disk, it may be less likely to crash.
