Firefox crashing when previewing files on upload
When I try to upload a file through Google chat, Firefox crashes on the image preview of a file that is selected. When I restart Firefox, it uploads fine on the first attempt. If I continue to upload images, Firefox crashes again. This has been happening over the past few weeks. I'm using a mac desktop and Firefox version 113.0.1 - is there a way to disable the image preview when uploading files? Thanks in advance.

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.
- 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.
- 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.)
Thank you for your help!
More information and further troubleshooting steps can be found in the Troubleshoot Firefox crashes (closing or quitting unexpectedly) article.
I followed your instructions and the page returned: 'No crash reports have been submitted.'
So perhaps it wasn't so much a crash per se, maybe the browser was hanging (the loading icon continued swirl round for more than 8 mins).
I'm accessing files from the server as opposed to my mac hard drive so perhaps that could be an issue?
Welcome any thoughts!
