Firefox on Windows 8 crashes randomly

Posted

I have the latest version of Mozilla Firefox running on my Windows PC. Mozilla crashes randomly and crashed around 10-20 times last night when my mother was checking her email and Facebook. I went to the about: crashes page and here are the IDs of the reports. Any help would be highly appreciated.

I am using Windows 8 with an AMD Radeon HD 6XXX/7XXX graphics card, and was experiencing constant system crashes (i.e., Blue Screen of Death) using Firefox 19 before finding this thread. Switching back to Firefox 18.2 has worked beautifully -- thank you so much for providing relief, as I thought I was going to have to reinstall my OS.

hello, unfortunately this seems to be a crash that is appearing in firefox 19 on windows 8 with AMD Radeon HD 6XXX/7XXX graphics cards - developers are investigating the causes of it...

the best option probably is to downgrade to the to the former version at the moment until this gets sorted out: Install an older version of Firefox ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/firefox/releases/18.0.2/win32/

the auto-update in firefox 18 for the affected systems is now disabled and will be turned back on when a fix is available.
