Hi! Recently, my Firefox continuously keeps crashing. I have tried to go through the assistance provided by the Mozilla Firefox help center, but my browser issue does not seem to be resolved. I also tried using Mozilla in the safe mode, but I am running into the same issue. I'm not sure if I need to be doing something on my end to fix the problem? Attached is the ID for my latest crash report. Would it be possible for someone to please help me?

Thank you so much!

-S

You can check for problems with preferences.

Delete possible user.js and numbered prefs-##.js files and rename (or delete) the prefs.js file to reset all prefs to the default value including prefs set via user.js and prefs that are no longer supported in the current Firefox release.

You can use this button to go to the current Firefox profile folder:


Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.

My firefox still seems to crash. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I disabled the hardware acceleration option and looked at the graphics drive drivers. Can you please help?

Did you try a new test profile?


Boot the computer in Windows Safe Mode with network support (press F8 on the boot screen) as a test.

Do a malware check with several malware scanning programs on the Windows computer. Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware. All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

Thank you, cor-el. I am working on the full scans of the programs listed above.

Also, I noticed today there is a problem with my Java. It says "out of memory java heap space". Maybe it is connected to the Mozilla issue?
