What do you mean 'dying' ? Does it just close, crash, freeze . . . . . .


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 crash reports, and copy them. Now go to the reply box and paste them in.

If you did not get your Firefox from Mozilla, then the distro version may not have an about:crashes (internal) page.
