As I said , I couldn't start up FF in safemode.... Couldn't do a reset either. Fixed by installing the latest version: 18.02

Thanks anyway for your all your helpful thoughts!

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox.

Hi -- Thanks for your interest! Can I disable hardware acceleration without actually starting Firefox? I tried starting up in safemode by holding down shift key, and then by Run: firefox.exe -safe-mode but neither works -- I always get the crash reporter.....

Thanks, Richard.

You can use one of these to start Firefox in Safe mode:

  • On Windows, hold down the Shift key while starting Firefox with a double-click on the Firefox desktop shortcut
  • On Mac, hold down the Options key while starting Firefox
  • Help > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
