Consistant crashes with 100+tabs

I had about 170 tabs open and now the program keeps on crashing while trying to recover from the crashed session.

Crash Report:

Re: Consistant crashes with 100+tabs

Start Firefox in Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
See Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems and Troubleshoot issues with plugins like Flash or Java to fix common Firefox problems

If it does work in Safe-mode then disable all your extensions and then try to find which is causing it by enabling one at a time until the problem reappears.
You can use "Disable all add-ons" on the Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode start window to disable all extensions.
You have to close and restart Firefox after each change via "File > Exit" (Mac: "Firefox > Quit"; Linux: "File > Quit")

Re: Consistant crashes with 100+tabs

Thanks for the help! When I start in safe mode, I get less crashes than I do in regular mode... I have 167tabs open and 1.6gb of memory in use by firefox. Is crashing because it is unable to allocate pagefile/memory space?
