Firefox crashed and now won't reopen. I've tried restarting my computer, deleting it and reinstalling, and nothing. When I click on the Firefox icon, it does nothing. Doesn't even open up a window. I've even tried to open Firefox in safe mode and nothing. Online it said I could try to open and refresh the profile but using the terminal and typing in what it says to open profile manager doesn't work.

After using Firefox for 30 minutes or longer Firefox slows and the cursor gets behind and jerky. Eventually will not respond and I have to reboot my iMac twice to clear the problems caused by Firefox. I have deleted all internet caches, cookies and web content. I have done the recommended delete and update. It works for a day or two and then the problem starts over again. Firefox is definitely causing a problem and I am going to have to stop using it. Safari does not have these problems. iMac OS 10.12.6, Firefox 59.0.2.

I like to watch live youtube videos at work (live radio stations like ChilledCow) and it often crashes. Watching normal YouTube videos aren't a problem, but I will get error reports where I have to refresh the page often.

I've tried changing the hardware acceleration settings and the about.config [media.webm.enabled] settings to false. Any ideas? Thanks for your help
