Firefox crashes

Posted

Ever since I updated my firefox to the newest version, it constantly crashes. I've tried putting it in safe mode and restarting it with the add-ons disabled and it continues to crash. I also tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it but no luck.

My report ID is bp-36977277-e0e5-45d1-abdc-bc8b70181230

Hi abmartinez94, sorry to hear about the crashes and thank you for the report ID.

Are these all "Gah. Your Tab Crashed" type crashes? Is there any pattern to which sites suffer from the problem?

If you view some of your other reports, do they have this same "signature" at the top of the report:

Firefox 64.0 Crash Report [@ Interpret ]

If there are some different signatures, please share those with us as well so we can see the broader picture.


When I load your report, scroll down to the crashing thread, then click the link to the code in the right column, it takes me to a page, and when I scroll to the top, it indicates it is code copied from a Microsoft open source library called GSL. I'm not familiar with what this code is doing; it seems to be some kind of plumbing used in higher level operations. Hopefully someone else will have an idea.
