I'm able to use the newest build of FF on my XP sp3 machine with no issues, ditto that for 64 bit. 3.6 did have some issues but it was quickly
I wouldn't advise anyone to still be running XP at this point, there is no reason to be. And I'm no fanboy, I help on to XP as long as I could but
the security issues alone are enough to upgrade to win7, as well as (hardware allowing)better performance.
Linux is a free viable option, some of the user friendly ones like Fedoracore and Ubuntu have a pretty mild learning curve for the average windows
user. In fact, there are various "Live" versions of many popular linux distros that don't even require an install, they run "live" from the CD or DVD
(or USB Key) but obviously rely on your system ram.
One of the issues you might encounter with firefox crashes are outdated or corrupted plugins. FF usually does a good job of finding these problems
before it causes a problem, but in the past I have had crashes due to corrupted addons.
