Southampton’s Charlie Austin rages at referee after draw with Watford

first_imgThis was a chaotic and controversial encounter that sparked outrage in Southampton’s ranks amid the deepening of their collective gloom. José Holebas’s 82nd-minute equaliser means they have failed to win any of their opening six home games of the season, which is not only an unwanted club record but leaves them outside of the relegation zone on goal difference. Yet, in the end, that only tells part of the story of what took place on a wet, windy and wild afternoon.The man at the centre of it all was Simon Hooper, the referee who up until the 57th minute was getting on with his duties with little fuss. But then came the meltdown. First, he failed to award Watford a clear penalty following Ryan Bertrand’s rash tackle on Nathaniel Chalobah and, six minutes later, decided to ruled out a second Southampton goal for what turned out to be a wholly incorrect reason.

The decision of the club’s owner, Gao Jisheng, to sack the vice-chairman, Les Reed, and the technical director, Martin Hunter, last Thursday is seen as a precursor for a change in the dugout. Hughes was in bullish mood about his job security here, but would have no doubt breathed a sigh of relief when Manolo Gabbiadini gave Southampton the lead with a close-range strike on 20 minutes.The hosts looked good for a first league win since September when Hooper took no action against Bertrand for his challenge on Chalobah. But then came the goal that was not given and Holebas’s strike, deflecting off Cédric Soares and past Alex McCarthy. Watford were good value for a point and asked about Austin’s disallowed goal, their manager, Javi Gracia, was in somewhat playful mood. “If I didn’t see our penalty …” he smiled. 16 Ward-Prowse Read more 12 13 21 Femenia 4 Vestergaard 26 Foster The Observer (s 40′) Corners 22 Redmond Match stats 20 Gabbiadinicenter_img Share via Email 9 Ings 27 Kabasele (s 90′) 1 McCarthy Lineups Share on Pinterest Share on WhatsApp 37 Pereyra Watford Share on Messenger 18 Gray 10 Southampton Off target 6 Watford 4 Southampton On target 6 Watford Salomón Rondón’s double against Bournemouth keeps Newcastle rising 25 Holebas 5 Stephens 7 Deulofeu 7 6 Topics Substitutes Felipe Anderson strike earns West Ham draw after Huddersfield’s rapid start Possession Share on Twitter 33 Okaka 10 Success (s 74′) 57 43 24 Wilmot Hooper, taking charge of just his fourth Premier League fixture, deemed Maya Yoshida had got the final touch on the ball after Charlie Austin had struck it past Ben Foster from inside Watford’s area. Given the Southampton defender was stood in an offside position at the time, the goal did not count. The look of shock on the faces of the players in red and white said it all – Yoshida had not touched the ball.“We scored a perfectly good goal that was ruled out for offside. The officials cost us two points. That is a joke,” said Austin.“People go on about VAR – they clearly need help. If this is the best, most-watched league in the world then give them all the help they need. It is a joke.”Having agreed with Austin that VAR needs to be introduced in the Premier League, Mark Hughes was no less sparing in his criticism of Hooper, before going on to criticise the PGMOL, the Premier League’s referring body, for putting a relatively inexperienced official in charge of this fixture.“It was a gamechanging decision they have got badly wrong,” he said. “For us, our game is as significant as the Manchester derby. Would the PGMOL have given that game to him [Hooper]? Absolutely not. For us to have a referee that today was not up to the standard required is hard to take. Over the years I have criticised referees and become known for that, but anybody who has seen the incident would say I have a decent case.” 11 Elyounoussi 15 Cathcart 16 Doucoure 3 Yoshida 11 Masina match reports (s 40′) 19 Hughes 10 Austinlast_img read more

Hazard: Zidane has always been my idol

first_imgEden Hazard says he is thrilled to have the opportunity to play for his “idol” Zinedine Zidane as he begins life at Real Madrid.Hazard recently completed his long-awaited move to the Santiago Bernabeu as he finalized a €100 million (£88m/$112m) move from Chelsea last week after months of speculation that he was destined for a move to the La Liga club.The Belgium winger was formally presented to Real Madrid supporters on Thursday as he was unveiled at the stadium in front of 50,000 fans.

Now that the move is finally official, Hazard says he is excited about the prospect of playing under Zidane, who returned to the club to take the reigns once again this past season, just months after departing following three consecutive Champions League titles.”Everyone knows that Zidane was my idol since childhood and the fact that he is a Real Madrid coach has been an important factor,” Hazard said at his unveiling on Thursday. “But not only that, I already wanted to play in the club. “Hazard was already recognized as one of the world’s top players during his stint at Chelsea, where he finished with 21 goals in 57 appearances this season while leading the Premier League side to a Europa League title.In total, Hazard scored 110 goals in 352 matches in Chelsea blue, earning two Premier League titles, an FA Cup, a League Cup and two Europa League crowns.Now at Real Madrid, Hazard has been pegged as a potential Ballon d’Or contender, as stepping into the Los Blancos lineup is a move that many believe will elevate his status.But the winger says he is not yet concerned with individual awards, but fitting in with the team, which includes reigning Ballon d’Or winner Luka Modric.”What I can say is that the Ballon D’Or is already in Madrid with Luka Modric,” Hazard said. “”I don’t know if it will be easier, it will depend on how well do we play.”It’s true that in the past years almost all of them have been for Real Madrid, but I don’t think about the Ballon D’Or, I think about the team, on winning titles.”It’s a good thing for me, it’s good for my family too.

Myanmar international help still urgently needed for postcyclone rebuilding – UN

30 March 2009People in Myanmar affected by last year’s devastating Cyclone Nargis need considerable help in restoring their lives, the United Nations-backed group assisting the reconstruction of the South-East Asian nation said today, appealing to the international community for continued support .“Experience from natural disasters of similar scale of destruction has shown that recovery support will be required for years to come,” said Bishow Parajuli, UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Myanmar.He added that recovery efforts in the wake of the massive 2004 Indian Ocean tsunami are only beginning to be phased out now.International assistance, therefore, is urgently required for early- and medium-term recovery efforts outlined in the three-year Post-Nargis Response and Preparedness Plan (PONREPP), which was launched earlier this year by the Tripartite Core Group (TCG), comprising the Myanmar Government, the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the UN. That plan, which has a price tag of nearly $700 million, provides the blueprint for the reconstruction of communities devastated by the cyclone, which battered the country last May, leaving around 140,000 dead or missing and displacing 800,000 from their homes.The need for funds – particularly for the shelter and agriculture sectors – is especially acute since the monsoon season will begin in just four weeks.Over 1,000 families are still taking shelter in vulnerable buildings that provide minimal protection from possibly severe weather conditions, while small, poultry and draught animals must be re-stocked to assist vulnerable and landless households.Assistance to farmers is essential to jump-start the local economy and restore agriculture-based livelihoods. Other areas needing boosts include education, especially for girls, and health.The UN is currently arranging for another donor meeting to discuss needs in Yangon this week. read more

Lakehead University launching new law school to ease shortage of lawyers in

The inaugural class of Ontario’s first new law school in decades starts this fall in a province already teeming with new lawyers, but these students will be steered away from the big-city fray.As law school enrolments continue to rise and more students studying law abroad return home, a growing number of graduates are scrambling for a comparatively stagnant number of articling positions — a 10-month work experience mandatory to become a lawyer.But the so-called articling crisis never made its way as far north as Thunder Bay, Ont., where Lakehead University is set to unveil its new law school, said the new dean.“If you talk to many of the law firms up here they’ll say, ’Look, we’ve been trying to get an articling student for a number of years, we just can’t get the right one,” said Lee Stuesser, who has taught law for more than two decades.“For years I’ve been saying to law students, ’Look outside the big centres. There are jobs there.’ And you know what? They haven’t. So there is a shortage (of lawyers) here in the north.”In March 2008 about 6% of articling candidates couldn’t find a spot, according to the Law Society of Upper Canada. Three years later that number had risen to 12% and by March 2012 approximately 15% of potential lawyers were being left in the lurch.The majority of articling spots are in Toronto, Ottawa, Windsor and London — which are all home to law schools — and just 2% of the positions are in Ontario’s north, according to recent statistics from the law society.An alternative to the current articling requirement meant to ease the crisis will be in place by the time Lakehead’s first class graduates, but law society treasurer Thomas Conway said he still hopes the school will help open up the north to new lawyers.Regions with the fewest lawyers per capita are often also the ones with the fewest new lawyers, law society statistics show. Lakehead hopes to fill that void, often referred to as the “greying of the bar.”The law school will direct its students toward practising in traditionally under-served northern and aboriginal communities, as well as small towns and cities across the country.Nishnawbe Aski Nation Deputy Grand Chief Goyce Kakegamic said he is “thrilled” with the new law school and hopes it prompts more First Nations people to become lawyers.“Our people are kind of geographically bound,” he said, so having a law school close to home means they are more likely to attend.The class of 55 students entering Lakehead’s law school this year includes seven people from First Nations communities. The law society reports that recently an average of 18 to 24 aboriginal lawyers have been called to the bar each year.The process of establishing the new law school wasn’t without its hiccups. When the university replaced a full-credit aboriginal world views course with a half-credit one on aboriginal law, a group of Lakehead students protested with a sit-in.Stuesser said he believes the outcry has been resolved by offering a course on native Canadian world views as well as a second course on aboriginal perspectives, in which students will work with aboriginal communities.The Nishnawbe Aski Nation supports the law school’s decision, Kakegamic said, but wishes there had been a bit more dialogue with the community about the content of the courses. He was pushing for a retreat with the new faculty and First Nations leaders.Sebastian Murdoch-Gibson, 21, participated in the sit-in with a group of fellow indigenous learning students, saying he felt that the original course was necessary to understand how law, economics and politics are viewed through an aboriginal lens.But ultimately their protest ended after the group presented its concerns to the university senate.“We believe on principle that an angry mob shouldn’t dictate the curriculum of a university,” Murdoch-Gibson said.Alison Morris, 23, who is set to be part of Lakehead’s first class, said the aboriginal aspect to the curriculum was one of the draws of the school.“I can definitely see myself working in that field,” she said.“There are a lot of issues with the aboriginal community and it’s really important for aboriginal lawyers to understand more about the aboriginal communities and it looks like that’s what the program is going to try to get us to do.”Morris, who studied Canadian politics at the University of Victoria and Carleton University, grew up in small towns across Canada, spending most of her formative years in Revelstoke, B.C.Lakehead focused its admissions on applicants from northern, rural and aboriginal communities, in the hopes that they will return to them to practice.More than 50% of the class is from northern Ontario, with another 20 to 25% from smaller communities, mostly in Ontario, Stuesser said.Lakehead tried for years to get provincial approval for a law school, and Stuesser said its niche is what made it stand out among other schools clamouring for one.“I’ll be blunt, I think that many of those universities want a law school for the wrong reasons…They perceive it as being somewhat prestigious and secondly some of them see it as a means of good tuition revenue,” Stuesser said.“Where I think Lakehead had an advantage is that we’re saying, ’Look, we need a law school because we want to serve our community and our community needs lawyers. The aboriginal community needs aboriginally aware lawyers. The local, smaller centres need lawyers.”’A 2011 study sponsored by the Law Society of Upper Canada looked at the numbers of lawyers per capita across Ontario and, perhaps unsurprisingly, found Toronto to be the most densely populated, with one lawyer for every 227 people.The regions with the fewest lawyers per capita — including a region east of Ottawa, Chatham-Kent and Durham Region — have one lawyer for approximately 1,800 to 3,225 people.Julia Tousaw, 24, another member of Lakehead’s inaugural class, is from Goderich, Ont., and would like to return to practice law there or in another small community. Tousaw had no hesitations joining an untested program.“I see it as a blank slate and maybe it’s a great opportunity for us as 55 students to start a culture that is different and that you can’t find elsewhere.” The Canadian Press read more

European ambassadors promise assistance after UNassisted elections in Burundi

The four were Special Representative of the African Union (AU) in Burundi Mamadou Bah, Ambassador of France Alain Girma, Ambassador of the United Kingdom Jeremy Macadie, and European Commission (EC) Representative Georges-Marc André.At a news conference arranged yesterday by the UN Operation in Burundi (ONUB), the diplomats warned against misusing donor aid provided to the country.”We would like to see our assistance used most judiciously,” Mr. Macadie said.In this connection, Mr. André said that according to the March 2000 Cotonou Agreement signed between African, Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries and the European Commission, the Commission’s grants will be turned into loans if recipient Governments mismanage the funds.Mr. Bah added, “I often hear you ask, ‘What should Burundi legitimately expect?’ I would like you to often ponder what people should legitimately expect from Burundi. People legitimately expect from Burundi hard work, much effort and considerable sincerity and transparency in management. These are the qualities that most countries benefiting from aid lack. This situation must change.” read more

UN peacekeepers in Lebanon find unauthorized arms and ammunition

The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has discovered a cache of unauthorized missiles, rocket launches and “significant” amounts of ammunition in its field of operation, the seventh incident of its type since early September.In a statement issued by UNIFIL’s military spokesman on Saturday, the Mission said the Lebanese army was informed of a finding on Friday near the town of Bourhoz and then took action to either confiscate or destroy the seven missiles, three rocket launchers and ammunition. The statement added that the biggest finding remains an earlier discovery near Rachaiya El-Foukhar, when peacekeepers located 17 Katyusha rockets and some improvised explosive devices (IEDs).UNIFIL and the Lebanese army have not encountered any armed personnel from Hizbollah in its field of operation in southern Lebanon, according to the statement, and no hostile action from such forces has been detected.Resolution 1701, approved by the Security Council in August, calls on the Lebanese armed forces, assisted by UNIFIL, to ensure that the area between the Litani River and the Blue Line with Israel is free of any unauthorized armed personnel, assets or weapons. Meanwhile, the Security Council held closed-door consultations today on the Secretary-General’s recent report on establishing a special international tribunal to deal with last year’s assassination of the former Lebanese prime minister Rafik Hariri. Under-Secretary-General for Legal Affairs Nicholas Michel briefed Council members. read more

LimeWire is back as LimeWire Pirate Edition UPDATED

first_imgAt the end of October there would have been a lot of smiling faces among members of the RIAA. After a long legal battle they had finally managed to take down LimeWire, one of the most prolific file-sharing networks.At the time LimeWire‘s response was very telling:AdChoices广告It’s a sad occasion for our team, and for you — the hundreds of millions of people who have used LimeWire to discover new things. LimeWire went offline and we thought that was the end of the service. We were so wrong.It has only been a couple of weeks and LimeWire is already back online in an updated form that makes for a much better service. It’s called LimeWire Pirate Edition (LPE)  and has been created by a small group of developers taken from the original team.So why is it better? LPE is effectively the old LimeWire Pro software with all the adware, spyware and advertising removed. Even the Ask toolbar integration has gone. What you are left with is the core application with the bits everyone wants and none of the annoyances. It’s also free and doing the rounds on BitTorrent networks, although currently it will only run on Windows.TorrentFreak has downloaded it and given the software a test run concluding it “functioned perfectly well.” The video below also seems to be the way the revival of LimeWire is being celebrated:UPDATE: LimeWire has now commented on the release of LimeWire Pirate Edition distancing itself from the project:We are not behind these efforts. LimeWire does not authorize them. LimeWire is complying with the Court’s October 26, 2010 injunction Read more at TorrentFreakMatthew’s OpinionUsually it’s the victims of the RIAA that feel like they’ve got nowhere to go and are wasting their time fighting. Today I’m sure people at the RIAA are feeling that way.A long court battle and victory led to a couple of weeks without LimeWire online. But that action has just led to a leaner version appearing that is now more difficult to fight because it is free and widely available to anyone and everyone.I’m sure the RIAA will regroup and begin fighting again, but it does demonstrate the futility of attempting to curb piracy in this way. It doesn’t work, and on the odd occasion it does the results are limited while remaining very expensive to achieve.last_img read more

Public Schools benefit from TCI Hospital Clean Hands Project

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos Islands , June 8, 2017 – Providenciales –  Public primary schools on Providenciales and Grand Turk received educational sessions and donations of hand hygiene supplies as part of a multi-phase ‘Clean Hands Project’ launched by Interhealth Canada – Turks and Caicos Islands Hospital over the past two weeks.   These institutions were the Oseta Jolly Primary, Ianthe Pratt Primary, Enid Capron Primary and Eliza Simmons Primary. Ona Glinton Primary School is scheduled for this Friday, June 9th 2017. Proper Hand Hygiene is one of the most cost-effective means of preventing the spread of bacteria. Teams of Infection Prevention and Control advocates from TCI Hospital visited each institution to conduct interactive hand hygiene GloGerm sessions.  The fun and safe liquid, gel and powder casts a revealing glow when exposed to ultraviolet light, which turns the invisible product into simulated germs.   There were demonstrations on proper hand washing techniques and hand sanitizer dispenser stations were mounted across each school compound accompanied by wall signage. Interhealth Canada – TCI Hospital donated supplies of antibacterial hand soap for bathrooms along with cases of hand towels, bottles of hand sanitizers, Clorox wipes and hundreds of pocket size-antibacterial wipes.   The second phase of the project will focus on public primary schools in the outer-islands.   The Ministry of Education, Youth, Sport and Library Services tremendously supported the initiative, which focuses on preventative measures.  Germs are unavoidable, but millions of bacteria can live on the skin. S  hared keyboards can also contain as much germs as a toilet seat.   Items such as cell phones can have more harmful bacteria than the handle in a public restroom because germs lurking on surfaces touched by persons may be transferred to cell phones, tablets and other everyday gadgets used by children and adults. Touching the face with contaminated hands may spread illnesses like pneumonia, the cold, and the flu.   Overseas studies on bacteriology have found there are nearly 332,000 genetically distinct bacteria on the human hand. These bacteria belong to 4,742 different species.   The average person spends less than 10 seconds washing their hands.   The ideal recommended washing time is 20/30 seconds.Press Release: interHealthCanada#TCIHospitalcleanhandsproject Related Items:#TCIHospitalcleanhandsproject Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Marine Corps’ Pacific realignment, which calls for shifting more than 9,000 Marines from Okinawa to Guam, Hawaii and Australia, will continue to move ahead in 2016 despite several unsettled issues.Last month the Pentagon released $309 million for the first set of projects on Guam needed to accommodate the relocation of about 5,000 Marines and 1,300 dependents from Japan. The funds will be used for site and grade preparation; electrical, mechanical, water and wastewater utilities upgrades; and construction of roadways and sidewalks leading to the site for the Marines’ primary base in Finegayan.The funds, part of Japan’s financial contribution to the realignment, had previously been authorized in past defense authorization bills but were frozen due to restrictions put in place by the Senate. Congress has approved nearly $9 billion for the relocation, and Japan has already put up more than $1 billion.The current schedule calls for Marines to start moving from Okinawa in 2021, with a majority in place by 2023.The planned relocation of Marine Corps Air Station Futenma from a heavily populated section of Okinawa to the less developed area of Henoko Bay is under dispute, however, as the island’s residents fight to move the base off Okinawa completely. In early December, Japan’s central government filed a lawsuit against Okinawa’s governor to allow construction to move forward, reported Marine Corps Times.The Marines so far have deployed four times to Darwin, Australia, as part of DOD’s response to an expanding Chinese military. Last year, the service sent a full battalion landing team — about 1,170 Marines and sailors — to the Northern Territory. President Obama has said he hopes to send 2,500 Marines — a full Marine air-ground task force — to Australia during the 2016-2017 timeframe, though it is not clear whether that goal will be met. Darwin’s port would need to be expanded to host a three-ship amphibious readiness group, according to the story.One issue on the near horizon is the recent lease of Darwin Port to a Chinese-owned company, which has unsettled Washington. DOD officials and their Australian counterparts now are engaged in discussions over the issue.last_img read more

District Attorney Devon Anderson Makes Case For Second Full Term

first_img 00:00 /01:13 X Houston Matters | HPMHarris County District Attorney Devon Anderson, at Houston Matters. She is seeking re-election against challenger Kim Ogg.Devon Anderson just marked her third anniversary as Harris County DA. Former Governor Rick Perry named her to the office on the death of her husband, Mike Anderson. She then won a term in her own right in 2014. One of her goals for a second term is to carry through on the criminal justice reforms she’s enacted in her first.“I’ve created six new diversion programs,” Anderson told Houston Matters, “and that comes directly out of my work as drug court judge and as a defense attorney. Seeing what a criminal conviction can do to a person’s life going forward and giving people that first opportunity to avoid a criminal conviction is very important.”Houston Public Media’s Coverage of Election 2016Anderson is now overseeing a reform of the county’s bail bond system. It includes a new risk assessment tool that can help judges determine whether a defendant should remain free before trial. The aim is to reduce overcrowding in the Harris County Jail.“It’s going to tell the judge what their risk is for not appearing for court, for committing an offence while on bail, or for committing a violent offence while on bail,” she said.Harris County’s bail system is currently the subject of a federal lawsuit. Plaintiffs charge that the bail schedule discriminates against poor defendants, who lack the ability to pay their bonds.

How to research Firefox crashes

first_imgHow to research Firefox crashes by Martin Brinkmann on November 06, 2016 in Firefox – Last Update: November 06, 2016 – 13 commentsFirefox Nightly has been crashing on me for the past three days. The browser starts up fine, but it crashes after about a minute has passed even if I don’t do anything.One thing that is strange and noticeable is that Firefox nightly spawns two windows, one blank without title or any other information, and the the main browser window.Clues are scarce usually when the browser crashes. While you may link it to your previous action, it is often not as easy as that. The following guide provides you with the means to analyze crashes in Firefox.Note: Analyzing does not necessarily mean that you will be able to correct the issue on your end. It can very well be that it is a issue that can only be fixed through code changes and updates.While you may be interested to know why the browser crashed to avoid this in the future, you often have to correct issues caused by the crash.It is fairly common for instance that crashes take the session away from you so that it cannot be restored automatically on the next browser start. Not a problem for users who start with the homepage but users who restore sessions with dozens of even more open tabs may panic for a moment thinking that all those tabs are lost for good (hint: they are not, it is possible to restore sessions).How to research Firefox crashesCheck out this Firefox crash guide for tips on how to resolve the crashes. The following paragraphs concentrate on finding out more about the crash issue.The first thing you need to do is load about:crashes in Firefox. There are a few caveats that you need to be aware of. First, if Firefox crashes on start, then you won’t be able to access the page. You can try and run a different copy of Firefox, say Stable instead of Beta using the same profile to access the crash reports in that case.Second, you need to have crash reporting enabled for this to work. Load about:preferences#advanced, and make sure that the Crash Reporter is enabled.Note: It should be obvious that data is sent to Mozilla whenever crashes occur when the feature is enabled. If you don’t want that, don’t enable the feature.The about:crashes page lists all crashes, even those that were not submitted to Mozilla. Crash reports are sorted chronologically from newest to oldest in the interface-Each crash has a unique ID associated with it on top of that.Starting the analysisClick on one of the crashes, the latest for instance, to start your analysis. If the Crash Reporter has been enabled, information about the crash is displayed on Mozilla’s Crash Stats site.The page lists plenty of technical information that are of no use to users trying to figure out why their browser has crashed.There is a crash signature at the top however that may reveal the crash reason. In my particular case, the crash seems to have been caused by HTMLMediaElement::NotifyAudioPlaybackChanged.This signature alone may reveal to you why Firefox may have crashed and may provide you with an idea on how to fix the issue.When you browse the page, you find additional information of interest. There is a list of related bugs on the page, if they exist. This can be useful as it may point you to a bug report that has been filed already so that you know that Mozilla is working on fixing the crash.Sometimes, there is little that you can do if you cannot link the crash signature or information displayed on the page to your particular issue.You may file a bug in that case to inform Mozilla about the issue. While you can do so from the crash stats page, you need a Bugzilla@Mozilla account to actually file it.More researchStill, there is more that you can do on Mozilla Crash Reports.You find a “more reports” listing next to the signature field, and a search option. While search is often not that helpful, as it runs a search on Mozilla Support, more reports reveals additional information that you may find useful.A click on the more reports links opens a tabbed interface that offers lots of information. It begins with a summary page that reveals if other Firefox users have reported the same crash to Mozilla.The same page lists information about the architecture, graphics adapter and other hardware information of systems that reported the same crash signature.Other tabs of interest on that page are:Reports — this tab lists all reports, yours and that of other Firefox users who reported the issue.Bugzilla — reveals if a bug has been filed already on Bugzilla. You cannot file a bug from that tab unfortunately, but need to go back to the crash page where you can do that.Comments — lists comments that Firefox users added to crash reports.Closing WordsBrowser crashes that cannot be linked to a particular action are difficult to analyze. Mozilla’s Crash Reporter and crash reports it generates may point you in the right direction.Even if they don’t, you may still check if other Firefox users are experiencing the same issue, and report the bug to Mozilla to inform the organization about it.Now You: How do you handle crashes?SummaryArticle NameHow to research Firefox crashesDescriptionThe guide walks you through the steps of finding out more about Firefox crashes to analyze the reason for the crash or report the issue to Mozilla.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more
