Re: Firefox crashes

Hello LadyRubyNightDragon,

What happens exactly before it crashes? Open a pdf file? Did you submit any crash reports? If yes, please include the crash id by entering about:crashes in the address bar.

Have a nice day

Re: Firefox crashes

Try to disable hardware acceleration in Firefox (you need to close and restart Firefox).

If you have submitted crash reports then please post the IDs of one or more recent crash reports that have a "bp-" prefix:

  • bp-xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx

You can find the IDs of the submitted crash reports on the about:crashes page.

  • You can open the about:crashes page via the location bar, like you open a website, or open the crash reports page via "Help > Troubleshooting Information".


You can also 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.

Re: Firefox crashes

Only crash reports that have a bp- prefix are usually send the Mozilla crash server, so I removed the report IDs that you added.

All the crash reports with a bp- prefix show a problem with the Flash plugin.

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
