My firefox has a crash issue. I'm running on Macbook Pro OSX Big Sur 11.6
My issue has happened on other osx versions as well .
My browser will crash with no warning. When this happens, all of my windows are forgotten when I reopen. I've read common issues and I don't find any problems with plugins or anything like that. Also, I have to reset my search engine to google, because for some reason the crash screws up my default search engine.
When I close firefox myself and reopen, it remembers all of my settings, including history and previous session windows, and search engine preference.
Any insight? Thank you,

In the address bar, type about:crashes<enter>. Note: If any reports do not have BP- in front of the numbers/letters, click it to submit them.
The crash report is several pages of data. We need the report numbers to see the whole report.
Using your mouse, mark the most recent 7 - 10 Submitted crash reports, and copy them. Now go to the reply box and paste them in.

This doesn't help, as the crashes that are happening to not appear to be recorded by Firefox. The crashes that show in the crash report are older.

I called for more help.
Are you saying there are crash reports that can not be submitted?
When a crash report fails, it means the servers decided they don’t need that report.
“You're seeing this page because the crash report you selected was held back from submission. For statistical purposes, we don't need every crash report and sometimes we decline the submission of a crash report as a form of throttling." ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Bug 1662317 About Throttling Steps to reproduce:
My Firefox crashed but did not submit the crash report.
I tried to manually send the report, and the system gave me the message: About Throttling
If Mozilla does not need the report, I, the user, still want to know what happened. How else can I fix or understand what went wrong?
Thanks for your help.
To be clear, there is no crash report at all. My browser fails. Then either it reopens itself, or I have to manually reopen. When it reopen, it opens up to a blank 'home' page, which was reset to the default. There is no notice of a crash report either during or after the crash. My last session is lost, and my search engine preferences are reset to default.
