Can too many extensions crash my Firefox?
I have 53 extensions installed, so can they crash my Firefox?

Yes, I guess there can be some out-of-memory crashes.
You can check the about:memory and about:processes pages for info about all processes. See also the about:unloads page for info about the tabs.
You can find the current multi-process state on the Troubleshooting Information page (about:support).

"Application Basics":<be>Multiprocess Windows and Fission Windows
"Remote Processes" (Web Content)
And another my question is, that if this crash https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/signature/?product=Firefox&signature=AsyncShutdownTimeout%20%7C%20Places%20Clients%20shutdown%20%7C%20sanitize.js%3A%20Sanitize%20on%20shutdown&version=108.0.1&date=%3C2023-01-03T04%3A46%3A48%2B00%3A00&date=%3E%3D2022-12-27T04%3A46%3A48%2B00%3A00 can be result of too many extensions?

See if you can start in Firefox Troubleshoot Mode Try a clean installation Uninstall software known to cause crashes Get help fixing the problem
No i can't start in troubleshoot mode, because it crashes when i close Firefox and i am using version v108.0.1, and the mentioned crash, which i posted in link is in this version.

Go to about:support and press the Verify integrity button in a Places Database section. There should be a log produced, you can paste it here for an analysis.

Here is my crash report: https://crash-stats.mozilla.org/report/index/628e35ad-dec4-4e47-94ab-71f620230103
It crashed not only one time, but every time when I quit Firefox, and after one minute after I quit, it crash. So I think that maybe my extensions are the reason. By the way, I have installed Firefox-scripts (https://github.com/xiaoxiaoflood/firefox-scripts), Firefox UI Fix (https://github.com/black7375/Firefox-UI-Fix), and two legacy extensions (Through userChromeJS), and overall 54 extensions (I had 53, but I installed two days ago another), and 3 disabled extensions. It started crashing yesterday, but this post was posted before the crashes started.

OK. Try to turn off Clear history when Firefox closes option in Settings.
You are dude! Your tip helped me, I changed "privacy.clearOnShutdown.history" about:config item and it is fixed, so extensions are not reason.
I will file a bug in Bugzilla about this weird crash.
