    it seems to be a bug, others have the same problem, see here:
    Code:
    http://support.mozilla.com/nl/forum/1/606806
    after the update we have one more running process: plugin-container.exe, maybe this causes something and/or installed addons

    mine works smoothly tho

    it's interesting, because we should have less issues with crashes after the update (at least theoretically):
    "Firefox 3.6.4 provides uninterrupted browsing for Windows and Linux users when there is a crash in the Adobe Flash, Apple Quicktime or Microsoft Silverlight plugins. If a plugin crashes or freezes, it will not affect the rest of Firefox. You will be able to reload the page to restart the plugin and try again."

    I have problems with the 3.6.4 update as well. The portable version runs ok, but the installed version won't work for me. So i had to downgrade back to 3.6.3 to get it running again. Greets, darkstar69

    the portable version 3.6.4 works without problems.
    only the installed version crashed.
    so i downgraded to 3.6.3 and upgraded today again and now both versions are running.
