My firefox has been crashing about 10 times day for about 6 months now. I've updated everything in my computer and all the firefox add ons. I've even updated to Windows 8.1 from Windows 7 and still the same problem. I'm starting to think its a hardware issue. I've even tried using Chrome. I'm still having the same problem and get the "aw snap" when browsing. The only plug in I have is Adblocker. The the extensions are Shockwave, shockwave for director, Adobe acrobat, and OpenH264 video codec by Cinsco. I've updated everything. Reinstalled everything and now started to buy new hardware. Recently put Windows 8 on a brand new hard drive and still having the same problem. I'm almost considering buying another motherboard. I have my crash dump file that I can send if anyone can help.

When I open Firefox there is a box in the middle of the screen where I usually place items that I want to look up. Previously, if I put an item or name in this box and clicked it, numerous websites would appear. Now nothing happens. If I go to the address bar and put in a valid website address, nothing happens. However, the websites on my Bookmarks still function Please help. I also note that when I access the search engine box, there are no search engines listed. My wife is a Facebook person, and I don't know if this somehow has changed by Firefox settings.
