Firefox crashes

more options

Every time I try opening FF Settings, or try saving images, I'm getting Windows crash dialog window that says that FF crashed and will be closed.

Also same thing happens when I'm in the Safe mode and even Windows safe mode and browser safe mode at the same time.

I can't find any reports for today, but I found a report that is the possible date of when this problem started.

Some problems with Flash can be resolved by disabling hardware acceleration in your Flash Player settings. (See this article for more information on using the Flash plugin in Firefox).

To disable hardware acceleration in Flash Player:

  1. Go to this Adobe Flash Player Help page.
  2. Right-click on the Flash Player logo on that page.
  3. Click on Settings in the context menu. The Adobe Flash Player Settings screen will open.
  4. Click on the icon at the bottom-left of the Adobe Flash Player Settings window to open the Display panel.

  5. Remove the check mark from Enable hardware acceleration.
  6. Click Close to close the Adobe Flash Player Settings Window.
  7. Restart Firefox.

This Flash Player Help - Display Settings page has more information on Flash Player hardware acceleration, if you're interested.
