Recent versions of Firefox have started crashing more and more often for me. As of version 80.0, it happens around 1–2 times a day on average, usually when the session has been running for a while. In the middle of work, Firefox window(s) will just disappear and the process is no longer running. This will happen both on my Windows 10 and my Windows 7 system.
I recently realised that I hadn't been seeing the Mozilla Crash Reporter window in a long time, on either system. I just assumed my crash reports were being sent in order to help fix these bugs, but today I decided to check, and saw that crash reports are not even generated anymore. When I oben about:crashes, I see that the last crash report is from May. I'm sure I've had Firefox crash many dozens of times since then, but the crash reporting facility seems to no longer work.
I tried running Firefox in Safe Mode as well. The result is the same: it will crash usually after a few hours of work, without any error, no crash reporter window, and no crash report showing up in about:crashes afterwards.
What could have broken my Crash Reporter functionality (and on both of my systems, too)? And how can I get it back to generating and submitting these reports?
