I have used Firefox for Mac for several years. I have always had my pref set to "Clear History when Firefox closes" Up until version 32, Firefox would close in a few seconds. Now it takes 2 - 4 minutes to close. I have to quit Firefox separately before choosing "Shut Down", otherwise the shut down is stopped.

I have read articles here that suggest that unchecking the preference for clearing history is a "solution". Giving up the automatic clearing of history may solve this problem, but now there is a new problem. Do I need to manually clear history every time before quitting Firefox? That is not a true solution.

In my case, why did this problem start with v. 32?

FF29.0 crashes when loading with tab groups, loads fine without tab groups. WHY?

I have about 16-18 tab groups (at least I did in FF28.0). When updating to FF29.0, FF crashed EVERY time when trying to load. I finally did a fresh reinstall of FF29.0. After reinstalling my 18 add-ons, I ran Session Manager and loaded a session from before I had updated to 29.0. It had all my tab groups! WOW, it loaded. Well, it loaded ONCE. It never loaded again. Crashes every time. I have saved sessionstore.bak and sessonstore.js at various times. I copied one from before the crashes and FF29.0 works just fine. It just won't work with all/any of my tab groups. Crashes every time while loading. If it won't work with my saved tab groups, I will be forced to go back to FF28.0. That would not be progress.

When I try to watch video on demand on my Xfinity account, Firefox crashes. The message says that shockwave Flash has crashed. If I choose Stop Plug-in, I get "Adobe Flash plug-in crashed." I have to open Explorer browser to be able to watch the shows on demand on my laptop. This problem disappeared when I updated to Windows 10. It seems to have returned. Am I alone with this issue?

Firefox used to work fine on my computer. However, two months ago, it started malfunctioning.

When I open Firefox, it does not respond to anything for about a minute. Then, when I go to a site like google, it continues to act slowly. Often times, it just flat out crashes.

I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling. Same problems.

I've been having multiple FF crashes for more than 6 months - sometimes a week goes smooth, sometimes there's several crashes a day (I'm in QA and use browsers heavily). In some cases only Flash Player crashes but sometimes it's a whole browser session. I updated Shockwave Flash and FF several times and reinstalled both during that period. Local troubleshooting didn't help either. Please see today's Error msg (https://www.dropbox.com/s/mb4bjck9hu3tccc/PluginError.png?dl=0) and a list of submitted reports (https://www.dropbox.com/s/cf0o25qx0i5xw48/CrashReports.png?dl=0) which can't be opened though. Let me know if any more details are needed to troubleshoot and fix the issue. Thanks!

Recently upgraded to Firefox 33.1. I have been using Firefox as my primary browser for the last few years. After installling v33.1, I will be browsing, Firefox will freeze, my screen will go white, and then my screen goes black essentially shutting down my computer. It has happened about 2 time a day. I do not receive an error message. I patiently waited (about 5 minutes before it completely makes my computer inoperable) and the computer or browser does not "unfreeze." Not good.

I am not on my computer often (as I have a full time job), but it causes problems when I am in the middle of researching and writing a graduate school paper! Gah!

I just ran the update for 33.1, so hopefully that will fix the issue.
