Firefox crashes

Posted

That site, mysurvey.com, has many validation errors and warnings. That said, my computer did not crash when I went to the site. Have you tried using Firefox safe mode? Maybe an extension is interfering.

Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
You need to scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

An add-on that restored stability to my installation is Memory Fox. (I am in no way associated other than as a user.) What tipped me off is that the crashes began occurring after I had uninstalled it in the belief that memory problems had been fixed in FF. When the possible connection dawned on me I re-installed it and the stability returned.

After installation you need to pull down "Tools" click on Memory Fox and check "Activate Memory Fox - browser only." I had failed to do that and thought I was barking up the wrong tree until I noticed it, checked it and the problem went away. It may not help you but is worth a try.

My guess is that it is garbage collecting data and eliminating it's addressability before it is executed as instructions by something.
