I use ffox with 100 tabs open, it crashes once per 2hours or so, sometimes faster...

I have tried almost everything...

I have used addons like MEMORY FOX, UNLOAD TAB, but no solution...

all extensions updated, all plugins updated....


thanks for any help...

Hi dobb

That could be a problem with the Flash plugin or plugin-container process.

You can check for problems with current Flash plugin versions and try these:

  • disable a possible RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension for Firefox and update the RealPlayer if installed
  • disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)
  • disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

Does it help if you disable the JIT compiler?

Try to disable the ionmonkey JIT compiler by setting these jit prefs to false on the about:config page (Search: jit) to see if that helps.

  • javascript.options.baselinejit.chrome
  • javascript.options.baselinejit.content

That are crashes with mozalloc_abort, so it looks that something goes wrong with allocating memory.
This last crash has a System Memory Use Percentage: 86, so maybe you need to increase thee page file.

Unfortunately those linked crash reports have an [@ EMPTY] signature, so there is no data available that would make it possible to tell something about the cause of the crash.

Do you have submitted crash reports with a "bp-" prefix that show a crashing thread?


Create a new profile as a test to check if your current profile is causing the problems.

See "Creating a profile":

If the new profile works then you can transfer some files from an existing profile to the new profile, but be cautious not to copy corrupted files to avoid carrying over the problem.


Do a malware check with some malware scanning programs on the Windows computer.
Please scan with all programs because each program detects different malware.
All these programs have free versions.

Make sure that you update each program to get the latest version of their databases before doing a scan.

You can also do a check for a rootkit infection with TDSSKiller.

Hi cor-el,

i have tested for malware and the system seems to be clean.

I dont understand this: "Do you have submitted crash reports with a "bp-" prefix that show a crashing thread?"

i will read about the new profile, but as i use ffox for work, and i need to have near 250 tabs always open is hard for me to move it all and test...

for some reason ALL of the latest crashes are:

[@ EMPTY: no crashing thread identified; corrupt dump ]


thank you

Wow, 250 tabs. Are those generally the same sites or do you have to visit a lot of new sites? The reason I ask is that you might consider using NoScript to block extraneous scripts from loading. It does require training, i.e., checking the list of blocked servers when you view a page and approving the ones that should run, sometimes in two or three rounds, so the more new sites you visit the more time it will take.
