hello mitb66, i haven't seen may such reports that would indicate that it is a general issue of firefox on galaxy s3 devices. so you might want to try totally resetting firefox on the phone and see if this makes a difference: go into the system's settings > apps > firefox and tap on "clear data" - this will also delete your bookmarks, passwords & history though. the app will just be as freshly installed...

Hello philipp I've already tried all kinds of clearing including complete uninstall. I didn't see any improvement after clean up. Recently I've found a scenario that will cause the crash within 2-3 minutes 1. Open several (6-8) new tabs (the content is less important for the case). My test was with It seems to be important that new tabs are opened using context menu "Open link in new tab" 2. Add a new tab and open site in it. This site seems to require a heavy processing. 3. Switch between opened tabs and perform a number of usual reading operations scrolling, zooming etc.

I've tried this scenario on my device several times and the result is always the same.
