Also when I restarted the laptop after the crashes, HP had to scan and fix the drive ?

Basically, an OOM (Out Of Memory) means the system is having issues with the RAM.

MemTest LAST UPDATED : 12/04/2020 Could you please run a tool from http://memtest.org/ in order to check the integrity of your RAM?

You will need a thumb or disk drive to install it on.

Hi Fred, I have run memtest twice before with no errors showing up. Also I let Windows determine the page file size.

Anything else you can think of ?

Hi Fred, I did review the other links re being slow, hanging, taking too much CPU etc and none really apply to this problem. I am not running Flash , I am running UBlock and Norton SafeWeb as only 2 extensions.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?


Start your Computer in safe mode with network support. Then start Firefox. Try Secure websites. Is the problem still there?

Be sure to post any new crash reports. And identify if it was in safe mode (browser or computer).

Hi Fred, I can do what you mentioned about first start Firefox in Safe mode but the trouble is the crashes are unpredictable and don't just happen when I startup Firefox. I may have to run FF in safe mode for several days/weeks before it crashes again ? Ditto for running Windows in Safe Mode.

Does that make sense ?

Hi Fred, As I mentioned earlier ... these crashes happen at any time ... not just when Firefox starts up.

Therefore updating to latest version doesn't prove anything unless Firefox doesn't crash anymore. It seems like Firefox crashes anywhere from a few days apart to possibly 2-3 weeks max.

FWIW whenever it crashes now ... I always reboot the computer. It seems if I don't the crashes come more often after it has crashed once ??
