That version of firefox was designed for much older systems, the version 60.4 ESR release information says it is for, 'x86 based systems', and your crash reports says you are on mac OSX 10.13.6 which is the latest version of High Sierra, this means anything designed to run as a 32 bit process will inherently be buggy anyway on that platform!

Even Apples own software in 32 bit versions has many issues running on 10.13.6 which is a 64 bit operating system.


Why don't you try the latest version of Firefox which is a 64 bit version, I am on High Sierra and it runs very well.

Ok, I installed version 64. It took less than an hour to crash.
