constantly crashing, cant find fix
It was wroking perfeclty fine for months then a pop up window came up saying firefox needed update. Didn't care, was in a hurry. Closed it. And...the crashing begins.
No toolbar, only adblcok plus. I've already updated, reinstalled everything to do with Firefox and deleted Firefox and the folder it was in entirely and reinstalled it. STILL...crashes..
Here's a link to everything I've tried.
When it crashes the crash report comes up but there's no error!
If you can find a solution I'd be amazed.
When I posted the problem it was when i did a clean install of Firefox and it was still crashing so I went on this forum but the other forum we've figured it out. Sorry.Read this answer in context 0

Maybe there is an incompatible plug-in or add-on. try disabling them all, and then enabling one by one while testing for crashes.
In most cases Adobe plug-ins cause this problem or problems like this!
Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.
- Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"

Had the same problem as you. Try renaming firefox.exe Worked for me, i just renamed it to firefox3.exe, and i have not had any crashes since.
