  • Firefox 38.0.1 Crash Report [@ msmpeg2vdec.dll@0x11f36a ]

That is a problem with msmpeg2vdec.dll that is probably part of Windows Media Foundation.

You can try to disable the HTML5 media player for some media types.

You can try to toggle these prefs to false on the about:config page with a double-click.

  • media.directshow.enabled

You can open the about:config page via the location/address bar. You can accept the warning and click "I'll be careful" to continue.
