YouTube plays the first video fine, but when I select any other video from the browser window I get multiple Firefox crash alert windows. Nothing happens when I click the "Close the Program" option in the Crash Alert. Firefox remains open and eventually after a slight delay, the video selected will play, but the crash alert keeps popping up. -Began yesterday (3/11/19), no known changes to browser or system -Refreshed Firefox (did not help) -Attempted in Safe Mode (did not help) Thanks for any recommendations.

win 7 x64, 65.0.1 I changed the paging file from a dynamic value to a fixed one (twice as much RAM), after which firefox spontaneously began to absorb all the RAM, which subsequently led to the crash of firefox itself, and other applications (such as discord, gog galaxy, etc.). This does not happen all the time, I can use the browser for an hour, then the memory will start to disappear, or I can only launch the browser and it will immediately begin to absorb memory. After restarting browser, everything returns to normal and no problems are observed until the computer is restarted. How to fix it all?
