We're sorry to hear that your Firefox seems to be crashing when you open it. Please perform the following steps to give us a crash report ID that helps us find out more about the cause of the crash.

  1. Press the following shortcut to get a Run window: [Windows] + [R]. This should bring up a window that contains a text field.
  2. In that text field, enter %APPDATA% and press Enter. An explorer window should open.
  3. From that explorer window, double-click on the Mozilla folder, then double-click on Firefox and then on Crash reports. Double-click on submitted.
  4. Now, you should see a list of files that contain reports. Go to View > Arrange Icons by > Modified to get the most recent files at the top of the window.
  5. Open the most recent 5 files with a text editor and copy the IDs.
  6. Paste each ID into the reply window on the forums.

Thanks in advance!

You can find more information and troubleshooting steps in the Troubleshoot Firefox crashes (closing or quitting unexpectedly) article.

You all are having different crashes. thingsmith, your crash is caused by norton confidential, please contact norton for help. jueshy, please start a new thread.

Why is it not impacting on my Desktop computer if it is a Norton problem?

more options

Because you likely don't have the same Norton extensions on your Desktop. This is only being caused by Norton Confidential and some versions of the norton toolbar, the 2012 and 2013 versions.

What exactly do you mean by Norton Confidential? I have using the Norton Vault on both systems.

more options

Norton Confidential is a Firefox add-on produced by Norton. They also have the Norton Toolbar. type about:addons in the address bar, go to extensions, and see what norton add-ons you have there.
