Firefox crashes all the time

more options

Hi!

For a few weeks now I've had the problem that my Mozilla Firefox browser keeps crashing or hanging (the image goes black, needs to be updated or then crashes completely). This happens regardless of the website you open (e.g. google maps, mymaps, canva, instagram, google sheets, google drive, amazon, etc.).

Here are some of today's about:crashes IDs: bp-eee64bce-504e-4b09-bd26-d74a40240303 bp-aebd34b7-cdc1-49bd-9090-ca6b00240303 bp-b0970e4e-7f08-4672-9a4d-ca16f0240303 bp-14ded6d2-b81a-4d76-b79a-26b000240303 bp-d751619a-ce2f-4ffa-817d-0557c0240303 bp-27d145c4-4ef7-481d-9ffa-12e570240303

I already checked my RAM with memtest86. There were no errors. My tribers are updatet and I use Avast Antivirus & Cleanup Premium.

Do you have any idea, why this happens?

The crash reports are so called OOM (out of memory) reports where not enough contiguous free memory is available and appears to be fragmented.

Do you let Windows handle the Page file automatically or have you set a fixed size for the Windows Page File ?

  • Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Performance -> Settings

If you use a fixed size for the page file then try the automatic setting and let Windows handle the page file size automatically.

Does it still happen in Troubleshoot Mode?

Try disabling any third-party antivirus or security software, this may require rebooting into Windows Safe Mode (networking enabled).

@cor-el Thank you. That seemed to solve the problem.
