Also it crashes sometimes when i click on a clickable buttons online, or when i type in a form or a post i.e. Facebook, answers.yahoo.com, i use the latest plugins with the exception of a "session manager" because the latest session manager add-ons crashes my browser, i use malwarebyte (not live) and Norton as security

Unfortunately the linked crash reports haven't been send or have an [@ EMPTY] signature and do not provide useful crash data that makes it possible to tell something about the cause.
Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.
- Tools > Options > Advanced > General > Browsing: "Use hardware acceleration when available"
Thank you, I wish Mozilla site provides more suggestions and tools to fix the crashes, a person told me Firefox crashes are highly common, and when Firefox reaches 2gb of memory it crashes regardless of the amount of RAM the PC has...so i monitored Firefox using Process Explorer and i noticed it crashes when it gets to 1.9x GB (virtual size)
I still don't understand why it crashes more often when i fill a form (like the one I'm filing now)
hello, firefox shouldn't use that much memory - try to reset the browser & see if this addresses such memory leaks...
Well, ..I have 1300 tabs open (research) , I have been doing that for a few years but memory leakage and crashes got really worst last 6 months .. i did a reinstall with no help, i use Firefox not chrome because one reason only: "session manager" although it doesn't work all the time
