My Firefox keeps crashing. I've uninstalled it, reinstalled it, run it in safe mode, and nothing seems to prevent the crashing. I completely deleted all of the old Firefox files before reinstalling it, but even the fresh clean version keeps crashing. The crashes happen almost immediately. I open the browser, try to load a site, and the browser crashes within a few seconds.
I have a similar problem
Currently running Firefox 19
PC is a Dell Optiplex 780 and has Windows XP SP3
I am wondering if it has something to do with the amount or ram on PC. The Windows Task Manager performance constantly fluctuates between about 17 and 75% with Page File usage of 3.01-3.03 GB.
Generally have between 15 and 70 windows open at any one time. Could that also be a problem?
In the Processes tab Firefox shows as using 1,569,534K and this fluctuates all the time!

My Firefox on my laptop was crashing too! I noticed when I reduced my tabs opened from 25-35 at a time to 10-20, things ran a whole lot faster and no crashes occurred. For me, I think it was too many tabs opened and perhaps reducing the amount of opened windows may assist you. Good Luck!
