    Firefox closes on it's own while I'm surfing the internet. No error messages. I just closes and I would have to open it again and start over.

    is it website specific? also, go to start > run > eventvwr.msc and check the application log or the system log for any errors that are related to it.

    It doesn't matter what website I'm on. It ramdomly closes. Somestimes it will be fine then it will close when I go to different site.

    when firefox is open, go to help > about Firefox. Post back here with your version number.

    Also, did you check the event logs as I asked?

    One thing you might check. Run Firefox in safe mode.
    Start> Mozilla Firefox> Mozilla Firefox(Safe Mode).
    This runs Firefox without any extensions and with the default theme.
    If it runs without crashing, then it is an extension or theme effecting Firefox.
