the senders e mail adress and mine appears with the content of the e mail
Type the full address as it appears. BUT use; <ME> in place of your name.
Many spam mails are sent to e-mail addresses using that e-mail as the return address.

will do it when the crash happens again. but for now, do i need to be really concerned about my privacy?
Without knowing where this came from or why . . . . . . . .
If it comes in, right click the address and copy it. Then paste it here. You can replace your name as instructed above, but otherwise Change Nothing ! ! !
It could be the work of one of your add-ons, or even add / mal-ware.
Type about:addons<Enter> in the address bar to open your Add-ons Manager. Hot key; <Control>(Mac:<Command>)<Shift> A)
In the Add-ons Manager, on the left, select Extensions. Make sure you know what each one is and what it does.
Some added toolbar and anti-virus add-ons are known to cause Firefox issues. Disable All of them.
Also, check the programs that are on your computer
Windows: Start > Control Panel > Uninstall Programs. Mac: Open the "Applications" folder. Linux: Check your user manual.
Go thru the list. If you find something that you don't know what it is, use a web search.
