I am a Linux user, and this is an issue that has just begun today. Firefox 45.4.0 now has the tendency to freeze, giving me no choice but to force-close Firefox. Occasionally, it freezes my entire computer. These freezes occur when I am preforming simple tasks; such as opening a new tab, accessing my preferences and add-ons, and even while in the middle of typing. Even when starting in safe mode, Firefox will still freeze. I cannot access preferences, so I cannot edit my settings to try and fix the problem. I have also tried reseting Firefox, but it freezes whenever I try to access about:support. It does the same while trying to access about:crashes, so I have no other information to provide. I am at a complete loss here. The only other browser I have to use is KDE Konqueror, which cannot access most sites I need. Help would be much appreciated.
Also, I highly doubt it, but I changed some of my privacy and cookie settings earlier today.... could that be a cause of the problem?
Here is an error message I received while closing Firefox after freezing:
EDIT: I solved this problem by using terminal to reset Firefox through safe mode.
