After upgrading to Snow Leopard yesterday I've come a across a couple problems. The first being that when I use firefox for more then a few minutes it crashes my mac, it happens every time. The second problem is the built in iSight camera on my MBP doesn't seem to work anymore, when I try to use photobooth or iChat I get an message saying theres no camera connected.

So does anyone have some suggestions here.. I'd really prefer to use firefox over Safari. I don't really use the built in camera much but still..

My Firefox 3.5.2 also freezes every time I open it but only about 8 seconds after opening it, even in safe mode at the "what to permanently disable" window. Activity Monitor says it's using ~100%.

It seems to start running properly after a few minutes of waiting (3 min after launch as I was typing this) sometimes. If it was to freeze while running properly, it'd have to do with YouTube such as opening a YouTube tab or closing a YouTube tab. Most of the time YouTube works fine though.

At first I had problems with Firefox being slower but now, some reason, it isn't. Maybe mine updated? Here is screenshot of About Mozilla FireFox. I noticed that is says 10.6.

But I see you have a later version than mine. So I guess your says 10.6 also?
