SO, I had 2 windows and 11,678 tabs open. (I guess I hoard). Anyways, FF slow response times caused me to do a FILE/EXIT. (I've noticed after restart, my response times go back to normal).

While doing the FILE/EXIT, FF crashed. I was surprised by that. In the popup I selected RESTART. But, that crashed again. On the next popup dialogue box I selected QUIT. Then I opened FF again (after verifying all the processes in TASK MANGER had ended. That crashed. I again selected RESTART in the popup. Crashed again. Then selected QUIT. I clicked on FF to start, and this time the SAFEMODE popup appeared. I selected SAFEMODE - but that attempt crashed also. On the next popup I tried RESTART - and another crash. Finally, I tried SAFEMODE again, and FF is now running in safemode. I did notice it had 1 less tab - 11,677 now.

So, I read that if FF crashes during a SAFEMODE startup - it's likely not an extension, theme, or hardware acceleration issue.

So, I am in SAFEMODE right now. I don't know what to look for at this point. Can someone help me? Can anyone read the crash reports to see what my issue might be? Or give me other advice before trying to EXIT safemode and start FF again in normal mode?

The last several submitted FF crashes from today are below:

I have some other weird problems also. One of the FF windows has all my BOOKMARKS, the other window dose not.

The window that has all the bookmarks, does not have the <, or > directional scroll buttons on the menu bar, but the window that is missing most of my bookmarks does!

This all started when I tried to end some of the processes in TASK MANAGER that seemed like they were not getting any activity, and i thought they were 'dead' processes from a few of the windows that failed to open after an earlier crash. (I had about 5 windows open at that time, but now only have 2 that came back after restarts).
