I've an online service where I download large XML files. After clicking on the download button the page is loading for a long time (file is generated on demand), than a new window/tab is opened with the download URL and is loading for a long time. Than Firefox crashes: "Gah. Your tab just crashed."

How do I get info what the problem is? Is the file to big for the XML renderer? Or any other?

Updates are not possible to the system (Windows 10, AV, drivers ... OK). Firefox fixed to 52.3.0esr. I can reproduce it on some (3) similar machines.

Signature: OOM | large | mozalloc_abort | mozalloc_handle_oom | moz_xrealloc | nsTArray_base<T>::EnsureCapacity<T> | nsTArray_Impl<T>::AppendElement<T> | TelemetryHistogram::Accumulate Process Type content (web) MOZ_CRASH Reason (Sanitized) MOZ_CRASH() Crash Reason EXCEPTION_BREAKPOINT Total Virtual Memory 4,294,836,224 bytes (4.29 GB) Available Virtual Memory 79,618,048 bytes (79.62 MB) Available Page File 2,200,981,504 bytes (2.2 GB) Available Physical Memory 350,343,168 bytes (350.34 MB) OOM Allocation Size 40,894,464 bytes (40.89 MB)

Is this simply a problem that Firefox does not get enough memory? The machine should have more avalible?
