Firefox crashes

I've been having issues for quite a while on this machine where my Firefox (tabs and sometimes all windows) keep crashing. The issue seemed to disappear at the beginning of this week (from 2020-04-18, 3:22 p.m. to 2020-04-22, 10:15 a.m. no crashes). However yesterday (April 22 2020) it came back full force.

I have tried to:

  • Re-install Firefox
  • Remove profile and re-install Firefox
  • Run it in safe-mode

None of these options seems to help (other than since running Firefox today in safe mode it crashed only once).

I have another machine (XPS 13) also running Arch and the same user profile, and that does not seem to have any issues.

Crash IDs - Both on April 23 2020 Normal mode - 4dd8d844-e5fa-42df-b57d-88ceb0200423 Safe mode - 49d18196-8146-4268-8e76-e546c0200423

It looks like 'Raindrop.io' and 'uBlock Origin' were updated yesterday.

Fred, thanks for replying to my problem. I also started having issues with large files on my system where the hashes for the files were not matching. After investigating it further I discovered that one of my memory modules was bad. I replaced it last weekend and since then no crashes, so I'm assuming it was being caused by the bad memory module (which makes sense).
