Always crashes when accessing online banking

My Mozilla occasionally crashes on various websites but this is rarely a big deal and is usually restored without further problem. However, when trying to access my online banking (Co-operative and Smile) it crashes repeatedly after a few seconds, making these sites unusable. Anyone got any ideas why this specific site is a problem and how to overcome it?

My cookie cache is erased every time firefox closes and I only have Ecosia as an Add on. My security setting was strict but I changed it to standard. This had no effect. I'm not very familiar with Linux so a simple explanation would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance

P.S; The crash reports fail to submit. I don't know if this is related.

Thanks for the reply. I set up a new profile and launched it in a new window. Unfortunately, it didn't solve the problem although it started off better than usual. Once it had crashed the first time, it then crashed rapidly in sucsession.

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

Thanks for the replies. I downloaded the latest vesion from the site but it is just a list of files and didn't auto-run. it opened with Archive manager. I tried to extract the files but this failed.

Just download the file Right click on the file and and extract here You should then have a folder named Firefox Inside the folder just look for the Firefox executable file(firefox-bin) and double click it You will then have a separate working Firefox
