Hello! I've been using Firefox as my daily driver web browser for at least a year, first on Windows and now more recently on Linux (specs below). The PC itself is the same, the only thing to change was the OS. Ever since moving to Linux, I've had this problem with crashing. I have two monitors and I will usually snap the browser to half of one screen while I do other things on the rest of my display space. However, most of the time when I try to drag the browser window off of its half of the screen, all of my Firefox windows crash, with an error message about not being able to send a crash report (see attached image). This has been happening with multiple browser versions, both the official repository release as well as the Flatpak. No other application has behaved like this.

System details: OS: Manjaro Linux x86_64 Kernel: 5.17.1-3-MANJARO x86_64 DE: Plasma 5.24.4 WM: KWin CPU: AMD Ryzen 5 1600X Memory: 15982.8 MiB GPU: AMD Radeon RX 6600 XT (amdgpu driver in use)

We're sorry to hear that Firefox is crashing. In order to assist you better, please follow the steps below to provide us crash IDs to help us learn more about your crash.

The crash report is several pages of data. We need the report numbers to see the whole report.

  1. Enter about:crashes in the Firefox address bar and press Enter. A list of Submitted/Unsubmitted Crash Reports will appear, similar to the one shown below.
  2. Copy the 5 most recent Submitted Report IDs that start with bp- and then go back to your forum question and paste those IDs into the "Post a Reply" box.

Note: If a recent Report ID does not start with bp- click on it to submit the report.

(Please don't take a screenshot of your crashes, just copy and paste the IDs. The below image is just an example of what your Firefox screen should look like.)

Hey! Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately, there is nothing on the about:crashes page besides the text "No crash reports have been submitted."

Can you see if you can reproduce the issue with Firfox from Mozilla? https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release
