Can you give me your crash reports?

  1. Enter about:crashes in the Firefox address bar and press Enter. A Submitted Crash Reports list will appear, similar to the one shown below.
  2. Copy the 5 most recent Report IDs that start with bp- and paste them into your response here.

You also might be interested in reading on the article on Firefox using too much RAM.

I can't enter about or anything else into the search bar if it won't launch

I have read every article about excess RAM and using the plugins to disable Flash, changing account profiles but if I can't get to the menu because FF won't open then i'm SOL on all of those.

Those are the crash report numbers. Only the numbers with BP in front were sent to the Mozilla servers. We can then look up the reports and find out what the story is. In your case, the reports look incomplete. Some information is missing.


I've called the big guys to help you. Good luck.

I don't think I'm doing this correct with the .old files

Yes, in order to import the old bookmarks you will need the places.sqlite file or back up of the original:

Please do post back about the crashing once this has been migrated.
