Couch Surfer is "Safari" for the Apple TV. Is there a specific site that crashes FireFox for you?

Which version of aTV Flash do you have installed? Using Firefox is much improved in the current 3.6.2 version.

You can view the installed version in Maintenance > About.

Infuse 6 for iOS and Apple TV is now available!

I have the same problem - Firefox loads for 1 or 2 seconds in my case and then crashes/ machine reboots. I am running firmware 2.3 with the 3.6.4 ATVFlash code.

I'd like to surf - but neither Couchsurefer nor Firefox work.

Can you advise how to get a browser working properly ? Do I need a mouse/keyboard installed? Is Airmouse okay?

Paul.

For using Firefox (or any apps launched through nitoTV > Applications) a USB mouse/keyboard or Mobile Air Mouse app (http://wiki.atvflash.com/index.php?title=Mobil...) will be needed to control them.

The Apple remote can be used to surf in Couch Surfer.

^^ that makes no difference on the app crashing!

my aTV also crashes running firefox, reboot aTV and then it works, but if i come back to the finder, then go back to the app it crashes and freezes! also Mobile Air Mouse settings e.g enabled/disabled reset to disabled everytime i have to reboot!? any reason why it cant save the setting i choose like it does for the rest for the plugins?

I'm having the same problems. Firefox crashes as soon as I open it in NitoTV. I've installed the Smart Installer and Flash but it makes no difference. Anyone know how to get Firefox to actually work on the ATV1?
