What is causing Firefox 3.6.8 to crash?

Hey guys,

Recently Firefox has been crashing a lot on me (10+ times in the past week), and I can't figure out the cause. Am guessing that it's one of the plugins/extentions, but none of them are random or individual. Is anyone else having the same problem? Or solved it?

The most recent crash id is included below.

I'm not sure about this, but the crash report that you posted mentions libfreetype_plugin.dll a few times in the crashing thread section. That file is part of the VLC media player.

As a test try disabling the VLC plugin to see if that helps, for details of how to do that see the Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems article. In your list of plugins, the VLC plugin may identify itself as "Version 1.1.3, copyright 1996-2010 The VideoLAN Team"
