Firefox crashes

Just randomly crashes - we tried all the recommendations and nothing seems to help: updating add-ons; drivers; windows; opening in safe mode did not help; do not have that "bit??" program;
One way that it always consistently crashes is when trying to download the add-on Hebrew Calendar - it starts to download and always crashes within seconds after and before it finishes the download.

I went to options -> sync and unchecked add-ons - hasn't crashed since. So at least for now it seems that was the problem - thank you.

Okay here's the last crash that just happened

I just disabled Universal Downloader 20.0.1 and Flash Video Downloader - Youtube Downloader 4.0.8. Let me know what you fine out in the last crash...I appreciate your help.

Hi themofoman, the last two crashes do not sound familiar to me (I'm not a developer and I only look at a few dozen crash reports per week). To try to make some modifications to possible problem area, could you turn off the JavaScript "just in time" compilers? Unfortunately, this will slow down script-heavy sites, so you might just run it for a day like this.

(1) In a new tab, type or paste about:config in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.

(2) In the search box that appears above the list, type or paste java and pause while the list is filtered

(3) Double-click the following preferences to flip them from true to false:

  • javascript.options.asmjs
  • javascript.options.baselinejit.content
  • javascript.options.ion.content
  • javascript.options.ion.parallel_compilation

Okay, here is the last crash after turning off the JavaScript "just in time" compilers.

Hi themofoman, that crash signature is very common and doesn't point to a specific cause, at least as far as I can tell. Hopefully someone more technical can weigh in.

Here are some more crashes one right after the other.

I've looked several times but I don't see BitGuard on the computer. I'll try 2 and 3 later...thanks.

I found this topic last night because my Firefox 26 has been crashing randomly often when it was just open with a blank tab & I wasn't using it. I went through all the normal things like disabling/removing add-ons etc... nothing worked. I decided to scan for malware, I used (free) & it found 26 search bar related trojans that my anti-virus software missed. After everything was removed & cleaned Firefox hasn't crashed. Firefox didn't look or act abnormal (other then the crashes) so I wanted to share in case someone else has a "hidden" problem causing the issue.
