Gah. Your tab just crashed.?

Posted

Firefox gives me a "Gah. Your tab just crashed." whenever I try to load a page. All pages do this. Steps that I tried to take to resolve this:

Started in Firefox in Safe Mode

Uninstalled all extensions

Refreshed, then reinstalled latest version of Firefox with new profile

In About:Config set browser.tabs.remote.auto to false and restarted. There is no remote.auto2; So I created one and set it to false then restarted.

I checked About:Crashes, but there are no crash reports.

I tried turning off hardware acceleration but clicking the open menu button does nothing.

I updated graphic card drivers to the latest version.

I rebooted my computer.

Other notes:

I had not installed any new software or updates prior to this happening.

All other browsers (Chrome and Microsoft Edge) work fine.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Oh good. I do in fact have BitDefender. It must have just updated because the issue seems to have gone away. Thanks.
