Selecting a download option other than the default causes a browser crash.

Posted

Whenever I select an application besides the two listed in the "Open With" list of the Download dialog (see image for clarification), Firefox crashes. This happens with various types of media and various applications.

In the address bar, type about:crashes<enter>. Note: If any reports do not have BP in front of the numbers/letters, click it to submit them.

The crash report is several pages of data. We need the report numbers to see the whole report.

Using your mouse, mark the most resent 7 - 10 crash reports, and copy them. Now go to the reply box below and paste them in.

I don't understand what you mean by "mark" them, but here are the numbers:
