So opening Google Maps the website crashes Firefox? Try running Firefox in Safe Mode to see if that helps: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode?redirectlocale=en-US&redirectslug=Safe+Mode.

This will indicate if you have add-ons that need updating or if hardware acceleration is causing issues.

Some of your crash reports weren’t sent to the Mozilla Servers.

In the address bar, type about:crashes<enter>. Note: If any reports do not have BP in front of the numbers/letters, click it and select Submit.

Okay, if Safe Mode still crashes, the problem might be outside Firefox.

Quick internet searches found posts like https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1059732 that point to software updates solving the problem (note that it's not just gfx drivers, but multimonitor software too; gfx in general). These are all on Windows, but checking drivers and updating other software could be the next practical step for solving the issue.

You can always try a Firefox Refresh to clear up bad settings and bloat, https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/refresh-firefox-reset-add-ons-and-settings. Consecutive updates to Firefox and your profile ageing cause said bloat and can result in bad settings being applied (although Safe Mode should cover this base, the Refresh gives you a new beginning in the normal operating environment).

PS. Submitting the reports as suggested above will help Mozilla deal with this issue in the future.
