The Error message "Firefox has stopped working" pops up 5 times as soon as a youtube starts in the background. After i clicked on "ok" the error message disappeares and the video starts playing. sometimes it even happens when the video starts in the foreground. But then only 1 time. I reinstalled firefox. Deleted all Mozilla folders, no add-ons, i deactived the flash protected mode, i updated my Graficcard driver. No Crashreport available.

Yes i know. Thank you for the link but unfortunately the link is not helping. With the reinstallation all of the proposed fixes are meaningless.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Hi, strangly enough, the error message never popped again without doing anything... I had this issue 1-2 months, but without any update or any other actions i vanished. Thank you nevertheless. i will try the safe mode as soon as it pops up again.
