I am really getting fed up with this browser, it is constantly more work than it is worth. The damn thing keeps giving me error messages in individual tabs that are silly and insulting (at the same time), telling me it is sorry but it had to close the damn tab because of some stupid problem it can not even identify. Screws up everything one is doing at the time and happens MUCH to often to be a serious browser. Also, several times a day, that damn thing closes completely dumping everything that is open, including downloads, and destroys hours if not days of work that just go out the windows, who the hell thought this one up. In addition, many serious website will not support it function making me have to use IE or Chrome to do some things that are so simple it is beyond explanation why someone, anyone, who is trying to push the use of a serious browser would allow such problem to persist past the first one, let alone months of the same problems. This browser sucks and is nothing to be used seriously, what so ever.

We're sorry to hear that Firefox is crashing. In order to assist you better, 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.)

PLUS, when I tried to post the question the damn website even trashed the question because, thought I was logged in, it had to verify my damn email address for the third time. SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

please follow up with the requested crash ids - they're not the same thing as you provided when you clicked on sharing your about:support data. without a crash id it will not be possible to debug your issue.
