Signature: sqlite3VdbeExec - keeps crashing - i have run all sorts of virus scans. What could this be?

Posted

Firefox keeps crashing within 2 minutes of opening, every time. Internet Explorer does not. I get the same signature each crash report. the crash reason was Exception_access_violation.

I have run a whole list of virus scans and anti-spyware and it all comes up clean.

Though it will not help you too much, this appears to be related to a bug in the sqlite software and there is a fix in a recent release of the sqlite software. This version of sqlite has been incorporated into the development builds that are used for Firefox 4 development (will be in Firefox 4 beta 5). I have not been able to find and sort of schedule for when the updated version of sqlite will be added to the Firefox 3.6.* branch.


I can not see any easy fix for your problem. What you could try is to create a new profile. Firefox stores user data in the profile folder, creating a new profile will force Firefox to create new sqlite files to store your user data and this may help with your problem.

First you need to backup your bookmarks and passwords so you can import them into the new profile. Hopefully you will be able to do this before Firefox crashes. For the bookmarks, follow the procedure in the Restore bookmarks from backup or move them to another computer article to create a backup file. For passwords, you can use the Password Exporter add-on to create a backup file.

Now create the new profile,for details see Creating a new Firefox profile on Windows.

You can import the bookmarks by using the procedure in the article I linked to earlier. To import the passwords, add the password exporter add-on and use it to import the passwords that you exported earlier. It will be best to reset any other customizations yourself rather than trying to import them.

Could you post some of the Report IDs (the long series of numbers/letters), see the Firefox crashes - Troubleshoot, prevent and get help fixing crashes article for details.

The sqlite3VdbeExec error indicates a problem with accessing one of the sqlite database files that Firefox uses for data storage (there are several of those files). The report ID may help to identify if a particular file is causing the problem.
