Hiya, So I have used the link below as a guide to get firefox to autoupdate on users computers via GPO.

Firefox is now crashing on multiple Computers, I think they might be crashing while trying to update themselves, as per GPO.

Any help please , crash report attached

Pick one or two units that are crashing. When posting the crash reports, label what unit the report is from.

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

Please, Do not post a screenshot ! !

Bug 1567491 Opened 2 years ago No action was taken.

Basically a shutdownhang means something within Firefox is not responding or running slow.

Is this with all websites/pages, some, a few?

What were you doing at the time? surfing, watching a clip, reading something . . . .

I noticed the crashes occurred within two minutes of starting the browser.

Start Firefox using Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Troubleshoot(Safe) Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?
