This is a RtlpWaitForCriticalSection crash and I read the article on dealing with it to discover the probable cause. However, I don't know what the file is and how it could interfere with my web browsing. Any help? I also noticed that I'm getting frequent crashes with other browsers as well (IE and Chrome, Safari seems to work fine). My most recent crash report is linked below:

My computer shut down for updates overnight. I turned it on this morning. I needed to print out a couple things from Firefox. The printouts all came out in a large format. The print was larger then normal. Only about 2/3 of the page width actually printed out. I experimented to locate the problem. I tried two different printers, both with the same result. I printed out directly from two others programs (Outlook and Word) and the printouts were normal. So it's when i print out from Firefox that the problem occurs. What can I do to return the printing to normal size?

After I update FireFox to version 3.6.8, I could not open the new page in the last tab, it always opens the new page in beside the tab.

Mmm…I could not make sure the new page or new tab I said is the same with you…?? (I use Chinese version so that I don’t know if it’s the same or not…)

A window could open several pages with different tabs, and I could click different tab to different page, right?

If I right clicked a link to open the page to “new tab” in the same window, the new tab opened in the last tab of my window.

But after I update FireFox to version 3.6.8 and I click a link to open the page to “new tab” in the same windoe, the new tab will open beside my page. (Mmm…Open on right of my page.)

I would like the “new tab” open to the last tab in my window, not “beside” the tab I used. How could I change the setting??)

As the title says, Firefox crashes exactly once per day. I always find it when I come home from work, which can be anywhere from 8 to 10 PM. It is every single day, not just occasional. More specifically, the Firefox window is missing and all that remains is the generic "Visual C++ Runtime Library" crash box.

My system is a fairly new machine. I just built it earlier this year.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 black edition (quad core overclocked from 3.2 to 4.1 GHz) Motherboard: Asus M4A785-M RAM: 3 GB DDR2 Video: Zotac GeForce 9800 GT OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (dual boot with Debian Lenny, but the crash is just in Windows)

I know the first thing that stands out there is that overclock, but it's unrelated. I suspected it causing an issue at first, so I ran it at stock specs for 3 days. It still crashed Firefox daily. I believe the system itself is quite stable, I never have problems with other software. My FF version is up to date, although it's been doing this for the past 3 or 4 releases. The only add-ons I have installed are DownloadHelper and Flash Player, but it still crashes if I disable them.

This one's got me kind of stumped. Does anybody have any clue what could be triggering this? It doesn't matter what tabs I have open either, in case anybody was wondering. One day, just to test that I closed Firefox before I left in the morning, then opened it back up with only one tab: google.com ....... still crashed by the time I got back home.
