Firefox crashes and restarts my computer all the time.
What happens: Suddenly the screen just goes black and my PC boots up again. Like the power was cut for a second.
When does it happen: It started in the last quarter of last year. It happens randomly when firefox is open and multiple times a day! It does not matter whether there is heavy load on the system or just few pages are open and I'm not even doing anything. I think it has happened only once while gaming (but the firefox was open that time). And generally with heavy workloads (gaming/solidworks) the PC runs just fine. Since it started I have done two clean installs of Win 10, "refreshed" the firefox, tried disabling all extensions, disabled hardware acceleration. The crash still happens.
The crash: The windows event has two errors after reboot: Event ID 6008 and 41. The crash happens so suddenly, there are no crash logs when windows boots up. It seemed so odd that I started to suspect my PSU is broken. BUT THEN I used edge browser and my computer didn't crash for a WEEK.
I miss using firefox to sync my stuff between mac, android and windows without having to log into big corporation account. But since starting to use firefox again, the crashes are back just as before.
Any Ideas how to fix this?
