Firefox crashes all the time
Windows Vista PC - Firefox 52.9.0 32bit I tend to open many tabs. This gave no problems in the past. Lately I get crashes all the time. Crash reports were sent every time but that does not help me. Reports:

I'm sorry you're having issues with Firefox on Vista.
Unfortunately, Firefox on Vista is no longer actively supported, and will only receive one more Security update in the next few weeks. This update won't fix any crashes. Vista itself is no longer supported by microsoft, and hasn't received a single update in well over a year.
This means that Vista and Firefox are not being updated, and are vulnerable to security issues on the web. This means that it is not safe to use your computer on the internet.
I STRONGLY suggest you update to either Windows 7 or 10 (I suggest 10, it's faster, more secure, and will be supported longer by microsoft), buy a new computer, or switch your computer over to Linux. Once you do that, you'll be able to use the latest version of Firefox (61.0.1 right now) and hopefully the crash you are experiencing will be resolved.
In the meantime, you can try to refresh Firefox. Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings
guard32.dll = COMODO Internet Security
Make sure your COMODO is up to date, and compatible to Vista.
Thx Tyler. and Fred. I refreshed my Firefox. Will see if this helps. I know Vista is not supported anymore and will buy a new laptop with Windows 10 eventualy. However I use my laptop only on vacation and it is still very good. I would have to install Linux on it but that is a bit complicated. And as Fred points out I hope my Comodo protects me in the meantime.
Hi, actually Fred was pointing out that Comodo is the problem of why your crashing. To take such a hackable system on vacation is not a good idea considering that is what they are looking for in tourists.
