Old problem re-emerging, mysterious crashes out of the blue, error comes up IPC browser error when tabs no longer respond. How can one deal with this without completely closing tabs which one is working ? This is a wretched nuisance. Is this a Win8.1 KB update issue or related to FF ? It is getting a nuisance to reload FF 60.1 when this happens; point to make is program simply isn't stable to use anymore. Can't be the only one suffering from all this.

Hi, when updating sometimes things do not go right. No idea if is Firefox or Windows. If the browser is completely crashing please send the bp- reports including the bp- Please follow the steps below to provide us crash IDs to help us learn more about your crash.

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

  1. Enter about:crashes in the Firefox address bar and press Enter. A Submitted Crash Reports list will appear, similar to the one shown below.
  2. Copy the 5 most recent Report IDs that start with bp- and then go back to your forum question and paste those IDs into the "Post a Reply" box.

Note: If a recent Report ID does not start with bp- click on it to submit the report.

(Please don't take a screenshot of your crashes, just copy and paste the IDs. The below image is just an example of what your Firefox screen should look like.)


Thank you for your help!

I've tried what you suggested but now I've given up. FF 60.0.1 is now behaving in a crash mode each time I open a web tab as if there is something in the program code that has been missed. As a busy person I really don't have the time to experiment, when all this hunting about is frustration and eye strain in perfection. Sorry to put this way but it's true. All I can tell you, it's crashed but no bp information is yet given. MS diagnostics is rubbish. That part may not be in error, but the system isn't informing me where the problem issues are. All I see is a tab dot moving left to right. Tiring.
