MacOS Big Sur crashes when I try to launch Firefox

I have had occasional panics and restarts since I updated to Big Sur. I have logged a bugwith Apple on this issue, and others are reporting the same issue. However, my last three are all associated with Firefox. Last night, Big Sur crashed when I quit Firefox. I restarted MacOS and put it to sleep. This morning, it crashed twice in a row when I tried to launch Firefox. Since this could be caused by Firefox, I'd like to see a bug logged with Mozilla. I would also like to see Apple and Mozilla to work together to resolve this issue. Since most of my panics and restarts involve either Firefox, Sleep, or both, I think that is the area to focus on. I did have at least one panic/restart while the MacBook Pro was sleeping and Firefox was not running. I'm running the latest version of Firefox for Mac and the only version of Big Sur currently released. If I am able to launch Firefox without a system panic, I'll add the version I am currently running.

I am hoping someone from Firefox Development sees this and that something can be done for those of us who need to have several tabs open simultaneously. I often find myself engaged in research that for convenience requires that I have several tabs open which eventually leads to browser slow down, hanging, and sometimes a crash. Im convinced this is the correct analysis since defragging the ssd fixes it every time. I believe it would be very helpful if Firefox were to add a compressor to its file storage routine, first blush thoughts, possibly one compressed file per tab. When I get into heavy research I find myself defragging sometimes several times in a day, which temporarily fixes the problem. Any chance this can be added, or if anyone knows of a fix to this issue? rgds, j

Hi, I'm very lost as to why Firefox has suddenly starting crashing on me very frequently over the past 3 or so days, after Firefox's latest update. I first noticed it when I tried watching streams on Twitch, then I also noticed it on YouTube, and then when casually browsing Reddit. I've gone through all the troubleshooting steps:

  • I've made sure Windows is up to date
  • Firefox is up to date
  • My drivers are all up to date
  • There are no viruses/malware/any issues with my firewall settings and computer security, I've tested and checked everything
  • The crashes DO still happen in Troubleshooting Mode
  • I've checked my RAM using Windows Memory Diagnostic for errors and there are none
  • I've refreshed Firefox, I've cleared my cache, I've done an entire clean uninstall and reinstall of Firefox
  • I'm able to watch streams, videos, and browse Reddit just fine on my other devices and on Google Chrome. This is only an issue I'm encountering with Firefox, which is super disappointing because I've never had a single issue in the past several years I've been using it as my browser ):

I've submitted so many crash reports because it's been crashing so often, but here's the Report ID of the most recent: bp-0b0dac91-ec69-4c9e-a8c0-a622b0220116

I'm so confused and have no idea why this is happening. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have installed the latest Firefox (12/16/2020). I have uninstalled Flash Player. I have rebooted. I have no startup.*.cache file in my profiles directory. I have only startup_shaders. I do have two Firefox\Profiles\*.default-* directories. One was created years ago and the other was created on 10th December.

Hi guys,

do I assume correctly, that if after-crash update to 89.0 wiped clean my sessionstore-backups folder, I've lost all my 50+ tabs forever? Firefox crashed, I started it and it opened with no tabs, like a new installation. I immediately went to sessionstore-backups folder and found that Firefox wiped it, created new empty recovery.jsonlz4 and recovery.baklz4 files and no other files are there (no, there are no alternative profiles in my Firefox directory).

I tried to recover deleted files using Disk Drill, however they seem to be corrupt, because the History Scrounger is not able to decode them. Does anyone have any other ideas, or is this it and I just have to move on? It was on my work laptop, so recovering the tabs would be extremely helpful and would save me lots of time and possibly some trouble too.

Thank you, Sam

Hello,

When my VPN client Private Internet Access drops its connection to the VPN server, all the tabs I have open in Firefox say they have crashed. I can restore the pages by simply refreshing, but it didn't used to be like this. This doesn't happen if I turn off wifi or manually disconnect the VPN, only if the VPN drops the connection. Very strange.

My environment: - Mac Mini M1 2020 8GB RAM, 256GB SSD - MacOS Monterey 12.0.1 - PIA MacOS client 3.1.2 (build 06767) - Firefox 94.0.2 (64-bit) -- ublock origin 1.39.0 -- greasemonkey 4.11

Hopefully you can reproduce and fix it.

Hi,

My name is Julio. I'm from Brazil and i'm using Ububtu 18.04 LTS OS. After an update/upgrade routine firefox have started to crashing at startup. I've tried almost everything avaible on mozilla's support webpage (https://support.mozilla.org/pt-BR/kb/falhas-do-firefox-solucione-previna-e-obtenha-ajuda#w_peca-ajuda-para-solucionar-esta-falha). I've already removed manually the folder .mozilla (~/.mozilla) and tried a clean install using different ways: ubuntu repository, comand line (sudo apt install firefox), synaptic repository, downloading the firefox-89.0.tar.bz2 file on firefox webpage... and nothing have worked for me. I can't access the troubleshoot mode (the app crashes before that). When i ran firefox on comand line the outcome is:

ExceptionHandler::GenerateDump cloned child 12536 ExceptionHandler::WaitForContinueSignal waiting for continue signal... ExceptionHandler::SendContinueSignalToChild sent continue signal to child Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error. Exiting due to channel error.

Despite the information avaible on support webpage, i couldn't find a folder ~/.mozilla/firefox/Crash Reports/submitted. I've found just text files: LastCrash and submit.log (and another stuffs).

Follows the content of submit.log file:

[dom 06 jun 2021 23:10:29 -03] Crash report submitted successfully [dom 06 jun 2021 23:13:31 -03] Crash report submitted successfully [dom 06 jun 2021 23:16:23 -03] Crash report submitted successfully

And the content of LastCrash is:

Could somebody help me, please?
