When starting up Firefox version 19.0.2 on Windows 7, the browser will instantly crash and gives me the crash window for it. Tried to restart the browser for several times and it would still crash on me, after that either I will have to start by using the safe mode or run the browser using compatibility mode set on Windows XP (Running the compatibility mode before the Vista version will work fine)
