Why does Firefox keep crashing?
Since several days Firefox crashes after only a few minutes of uses regardless of the site on which I am on. I tried to restart in Safe Mode but nothing has changed. I tried to follow the instructions that are in the "Help" tab of Firefox but I see nothing concrete. Just before it started crashing my Kaspersky antivirus warned me that malware might want to harm my system.

If you can't get Firefox to open, you will have to do this the hard way.
