MJB: FF 3.6.6 Crashes Repeatedly, even when idle

Veröffentlicht

[Apologies, I clicked the wrong URL and shut the previous thread by mistake.]

I have FF 3.6.6 randomly crashing when I am not even doing anything. I have two websites open normally, neither of them uses Flash or any adobe plug-ins. One auto-refreshes content every few minutes, but it is text and basic JPG/GIF graphics (run by JavaScript I presume). The other site does nothing if I take no actions. But several times a day, FF just shuts down silently.

I am running on linux Mint 9 KDE Edition.

about:crashes says the URL is invalid. ~/.mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/ doesn't exist; ~/.mozilla/firefox/ contains a single file called .profiles.ini - nor could I find a folder by that name in any of the directories related to FireFox.

I have now scanned my entire HD for a folder (or file) named Crash Reports, with no luck.

OK, I installed that. You may not believe this but there is no "crashes" option in the new menu. It goes: about, buildconfig, cache, config, credits, ....

One of your add-ons might be the culprit too. Try running Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] with all add-ons disabled. If that solves the problem, see [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and possibly [[Troubleshooting plugins]]

Thanks for the anti-virus links, but that's all Windows software; I'm on linux. :-)

I'll try safe mode and report back when I have news.

Btw, I need to point out that my system is a clean install as of a few days ago, to a new hard drive, so the OS was installed from scratch, along with all other software.

OK, after eliminating and testing, it seems (!) that the crash is caused by Mint Search Enhancer - which comes preinstalled with the OS and FF 3.6.6. I had it disabled and had no crashes for a full day. Re-enabled and FF crashed within a few hours.

I don't have certainty that this was the culprit as I might simply not have left things going long enough for them to provoke a crash. But it does seem to be the case.

Anyway, thank you for the assistance. :-)
