Firefox is crashing frequently

Firefox has been running fine for me for a long time but recently, like the last week or so, it has been crashing constantly. When I first boot up my computer, it will be fine for awhile and then it'll just crash. If I try to restart it then, it will either immediately crash or crash after a few seconds. sometimes it will hold together for a bit and then crash. I've had it crash when I've clicked to move to a new webpage, and I've had it crash when it is just idling on a webpage. I have already tried troubleshooting mode and it still crashed, so its not my extensions. Ive also tried to reinstall it and that has not helped either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

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


We have seen this issue a lot of late; You can check for issues caused by a corrupted or incomplete Visual C++ installation that is missing runtime components (Redistributable Packages) required by Firefox, especially VCRUNTIME140_1.dll.

Install both 32-bit and 64-bit "Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019" downloads, (x86: vc_redist.x86.exe and x64: vc_redist.x64.exe) from https://support.microsoft.com/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

You may not need the latter (32-bit version) if you use 64-bit Firefox. You may have to reboot the computer. ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ In another thread, a user reported that a recent update of Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (version 415) may be causing symptoms similar to the VC Runtime problem. If you have MBAE, it should have a setting to exempt Firefox. You could test whether that makes any difference.

Your crashes are all over the place. Sometimes this means there is a problem with the RAM.

MemTest 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.

You can create a new profile as a quick test to see if your current profile is causing the problem.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer files from a previously used profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over problems.

Ok, I wanted to give it a little bit of time to make sure that it was fixed, but updating visual studio through that link you posted seems to have solved my issue and I have not had another crash yet. If another crash happens, I'll update this thread. Thank you guys for the help all the same!
