Firefox crashes at my home page and also just randomly. I have tried to check my add ons but whenever I click on the add ons box it closes.

Try starting FF in Safe Mode and check "disable all add-ons" if you think they might be the problem.

I did that and it was the problem. Now I'm trying to restart the add ons one by one and the box just closes every time I click on it.

Well, if Safe Mode worked(you said it did right?) then it's a faulty add-on. You probably have to uninstall one of them. Can you give me a list?? Maybe I know what add-on is causing it.

Firefox accelerator java console 6.0.18

Java quick starter 1.0 framework assistant 1.2.1

 I think the bad one is the Java quick start. It's the only one that when I left click on it uninstall is all greyed out.

Hmmm... I wouldn't think it was Java that was doing it. It won't let you uninstall it??

As soon as I click on the add ons box anywhere on the box it closes I can't uninstall or disable or enable anything.

Huh... I don't know what to do then. Sry.

i had the same problem, but only when opening facebook, it would crash the FF..

also "open link in new tab" was grayed out on the left click mouse menu

so i went into safe mode, and everything was fine,

- one by one i disabled/enabled the extensions, and found the culprit

firefox accelerator

once i disabled and pulled up FF again, problems resolved..
