Cannot keep firefox open when signed into Mozilla Sync account
I'm running version v92.0 (64) on ubuntu 21.04. Firefox would crash upon opening when signed in. It would stay active enough for me to disable the extensions & themes. After doing that it still crashed. I tried going into Troubleshooting mode and it would still crash. I went into Troubleshooting mode and did a refresh. It was still crashing. Finally I signed out of my mozilla sync account and the browser has stayed active long enough for me to type this report.
I've submitted all crash reports in about:crashes, and I'm not really sure what to do next.
Perhaps a local version of the Mozilla Sync profile has been corrupted? if so, is there a way to remove it and pull down the "sync"ed version from Mozilla's servers? What if the version on Mozilla's server's has been corrupted? should I back up the local profile (wherever it is) before removing?
I hope I've given enough information. Please let me know if you need further, more specific information.

Are you currently using a version from the repositories of your Linux distribution? Try the Firefox version from the official Mozilla server: https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/
I removed the version that was included from the repository and installed from the tar file from that ran fine. So I tried the version from mozilla's PPA. That version also appears to stay active for longer than 30 seconds even when signed into Mozilla Sync.
