Hello,

As of today, Firefox crashes on start-up systematically. I am running Kubuntu 20.04. I have removed and re-installed Firefox, updated my system and rebooted, to no avail.

Firefox also crashes immediately in safe mode.

Here are the contents of the latest crash report:

Any help would be much appreciated!

Try to update/install Firefox 86.0.1 as that has a fix for a common crash with QCMS (Quick Color Management System).

You can find the full version of the current Firefox release (86.0.1) in all languages and all operating systems here:
