Firefox crashes

My browser keeps crashing, randomly. The notice that appears says that a crash report was not submitted because "The crash reporter is unable to submit a crash report... couldn't create pending dump directory." I can reopen Firefox, reload the pages that were closed due to the crash, and normal operation seems to resume for about 3 or 4 hours, then it will crash again with the same error message. I have twitter, google+, and facebook (with the Better Facebook extension) tabs open at all times. I am also running the LastPass extension.

Additional info: When I do reopen the browser and restore tabs, I have to reenter passwords to get back into sites that were open before the crash. For example, I log back into Facebook and it asks me to name the device I'm using (a security feature I have enabled on my FB account) since it doesn't recognize it.

I disabled the Better Facebook extension and so far, no crashes. There were a few reports from others on the Better Facebook FB page regarding this problem.
