Firefox crashes when I attempt to download or upload a file

Whenever a website prompts for me to upload or download a file and I except Firefox crashes, quitting in its entirety. This still occurs in "Troubleshoot" mode so I assume it is not any of my extensions. Here is a crash report from when this occurred if it helps. Another odd observation I made is that I am able to upload a file if I use a "drag-and-drop" feature on a website.

Try Firefox from Mozilla and see if you have the same issue. https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/all/#product-desktop-release

Just download, unzip, and run firefox-bin.
