Firefox 68.0.1 crashes on startup | Ubuntu 18.04
Hello everyone, I've recently had to recover my home directory on a machine running Ubuntu 18.04 from a backup... Everything works fine BUT Firefox which keeps crashing right at startup. Nothing happens until the report window opens up.
What I've tried so far:
trying to run it from terminal, trying to run it from terminal in safe-mode, purging and reinstalling it via apt, purging it again and reinstalling via downloaded tar.bz2 from mozilla website
When running from terminal I get the following:
ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 5853
ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child
ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal...
Failed to open curl lib from binary, use libcurl.so instead
Report ID: bp-efb679bf-6ac0-4c24-9996-c0f3b0190803
I'd be glad for any help, thank you very much! Please let me know if you need more details. :)

Never install software the way you did.
Always install software from the synaptic management.
I've now tried running it with debug-mode on after installing firefox-dbg. gdb gives me a segmentation fault in malloc at
It says, it can't find the file/directory.
I'd really appreciate any help! Thank you.
