Can not make Firefox work. Every time I open it, it crashes. Do not know why, just started today. Tried reloading, did not fix. Cleaned PC of virus's with two different cleaning softwares. Re-downloaded Firefox again. Still doesn't stay open, just crashes. Crash ID: bp-73e69ce0-e837-431b-9e30-83e322151229. Any ideas?

Chosen solution

hi, this seems to be a crash with banksafe.dll (that's a module from your gdata av-software) involved - it's probably best to contact gdata's support about this issue as well...

in the meantime you might want to go back to firefox 43.0.2 and disable auto-updates for the moment in the firefox menu ≡ > options > advanced > update section, until there is a better solution available. here is the download directory for firefox 43.0.2, please pick the right language code: http://archive.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/releases/43.0.2/win32/

Signature banksafe.dll

Banksafe.dll = G Data Security Software


Disable or check for updates.


Do you have nvidia's network access manager or forceware network manager software installed? Disable / remove it.
