As the title says, Firefox crashes exactly once per day. I always find it when I come home from work, which can be anywhere from 8 to 10 PM. It is every single day, not just occasional. More specifically, the Firefox window is missing and all that remains is the generic "Visual C++ Runtime Library" crash box.

My system is a fairly new machine. I just built it earlier this year.

CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 955 black edition (quad core overclocked from 3.2 to 4.1 GHz) Motherboard: Asus M4A785-M RAM: 3 GB DDR2 Video: Zotac GeForce 9800 GT OS: Windows 7 Ultimate (dual boot with Debian Lenny, but the crash is just in Windows)

I know the first thing that stands out there is that overclock, but it's unrelated. I suspected it causing an issue at first, so I ran it at stock specs for 3 days. It still crashed Firefox daily. I believe the system itself is quite stable, I never have problems with other software. My FF version is up to date, although it's been doing this for the past 3 or 4 releases. The only add-ons I have installed are DownloadHelper and Flash Player, but it still crashes if I disable them.

This one's got me kind of stumped. Does anybody have any clue what could be triggering this? It doesn't matter what tabs I have open either, in case anybody was wondering. One day, just to test that I closed Firefox before I left in the morning, then opened it back up with only one tab: google.com ....... still crashed by the time I got back home.

I'd like to know more into how private mode works. Where does the cache/cookies files go after closing firefox in private mode? Are they even saved at all? Lets say i streamed some videos over the net, that has some cache right; does private mode save the info until i close firefox, or it doesnt save it at all? Im sort of a minimalist, i like keeping my system clean and fast. I would prefer not having the files saved at all even when its in private mode...

The toolbar at the top of Firefox shows the forward/backward button, refresh button, and stop button, but all are dark gray and I can't click any of them. Its frustrating because a lot of websites I visit are updated often and a simple click of the refresh button keeps me up to date, but its not possible now.

I was uploading (or downloading, I'm not sure) a music file that was sent to me by email, and the gray box that automatically asks me if I want to download came up, and I accidentally clicked the wrong thing instead of just hitting okay. (there are two options to click - click the little bubble, and I have mine always on the first option) I don't remember what the option was, but now it asks me where to save it and when I hit iTunes, it doesn't go to my iTunes. How do I get the original "would you like to save this file" or "download now" box back?

Just once or twice

I am using XMLHttpRequest to send data to the server, and Firefox is adding 'charser=UTF-8' to the end of the content-type header attribute. I have tried to over write the content-type by adding "mypostrequest.setRequestHeader("Content-type", "application/x-www-form-urlencoded");" But 'charser=UTF-8' is still added.

This started happening a little while ago, so I was forced to switch to Internet Explorer for a little while. Every time I open Firefox, instead of showing the web page, the location bar simply states "Search Bookmarks and History." Also, whenever I try to open another window from a link, it shows a large window with nothing it in saying the same thing in the location bar. I have a desktop computer with Firefox as well, and none of this has happened to that computer.
