Tabs crashing an unusual amount of times in the last several weeks

To whomever this concerns,

Paul from Mastodon said I should submit a ticket with my crash reports.

'Firefox has become unreliable at times in at least the last several weeks, I don't remember exactly how long. It gets to the point where any new tabs are non-functional, I have to restart the browser for Firefox to start working again.'

I recently submitted unsubmitted crash reports, I'm not a Mozilla dev, but I noticed a common theme is: "Quota manager shutdown timed out." A one-off crash was "IPC FatalError in the parent process!"

Here's my crash report id's:

  • bp-9291ac3b-dd78-4d93-829b-ae3f20240218
  • bp-39c08644-0905-4518-9fac-1068b0240218
  • bp-87b98b15-3ef7-4943-a4e5-3074e0240218

  • bp-45f66e51-03e7-4d5c-8328-43db30240218
  • bp-bbe53c10-725f-40e8-9b7c-680d0024020

Idk if this is helpful.

Idk if I'm the only one running into these issues, but if the average Joe was, I could see them abandoning Firefox due to these annoyances; so with your dwindling marketshare, I hope this is something you can resolve before it bothers too many people.

Best of luck~

You are not alone with this issue. I have to admit that I haven't been in Win 11 in about a week and logged in today and it was a mess... Firefox and Waterfox crashing. I'll have to try again tomorrow.  ;-))

It looks like a cache issue. It cannot remove it. Try to clear the cache.
