Why does Firefox crash, every single time I am looking a my page of comics at gocomic.com?

I get an e-mail through gmail that notifies me that the days comics are available for me to read. I open the e-mail and immediately click on the link that takes me to the site and my page of comics. I shut down the e-mail and only have the site page open. Somewhere about halfway through the list, Firefox crashes. Usually it then gives me that "inform Firefox" notice, but it also just tells me that it has crashed and I have to restart Firefox from the desktop. Rarely, it will let me do a "restore" but, as I say, that is rare - I usually just have to restart Firefox and go back to my e-mail and start all over again. Also, when I am on the site, the icons for going forward or back on the individual comics is not showing, I have to guess which icon is under the pointer.

I have not reset Firefox back to original, as I don't really want to do that, since I seem to always lose important information when I do that. I am using the most current version - 33.02. Even while typing this, FIrefox won't show that dash "-" mark, I just hope it's there.

Also, my bookmarks save(exported) file is 12,924 KB in size, which seems rather large to me. And I do have a large amount of sites saved, so...

Any ideas/help?

Thanks!

Michael

Start Firefox in Safe Mode to check if one of the extensions (Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Extensions) or if hardware acceleration is causing the problem.

  • Switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox/Tools > Add-ons > Appearance
  • Do NOT click the Reset button on the Safe Mode start window
