Occasionally when I go to webpages the entire page will turn black. This most often occurs when scrolling, but can also happen when loading a page or even randomly. Usually, but not always, more scrolling fixes it. shortly after getting these problems Firefox will often crash.

Your crash reports all have different signatures but the System Memory Use Percentage in the crash reports is rather high, so this could be out-of-memory crashes.

This may also be caused by add block plus. After you paste the crash reports we can take a look further as well. Thank you.

That would probably because I have a bad habit of not closing tabs... I have maybe 600 open right now, although tabs don't load until they are selected Firefox is currently using 2.5GB of RAM. I should get to closing them...

Oh, man...:P Did it help when you closed down some of those tabs, maybe 300? Geez, how do you get that high number of tabs? I can barely do 10
