Firefox crashes all the time on multiple computers from the same moment (Gah! Tab just crashed)
I have two PCs with OpenSUSE Leap 15.1 Linux with different hardware. At the very same time the Firefox browsers stopped completely working on both. By completely I mean one can start them and view pages like "about:support", but any attempt to open a new tab results in a message "Gah! Your tab just crashed!".
It doesn't work in Safe Mode either. There are close to none plugins on one of them, disabling plugins on the other Firefox doesn't help.
It can't be an issue of bad memory or drive or graphic card driver - the two computers are different and it happened at the same time.
It wouldn't even connect to my local router IP address, so it doesn't seem to be some issue with external routing.
It's been about 7-10 days since the issue started. I believe it may be either broken Firefox update or incompatible update of a system component that Firefox is dependent on.

Are you currently using a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution?
Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server:

Of course, the downloaded Firefox is not a solution (it's not installed, wouldn't be updated, etc.), but it shows that ithe latest version is working.
I'll post it on OpenSUSE forums.
Thank you for your help.
Glad to help. Safe Surfing.
