Firefox 29 crashes
My Firefox browser recently underwent an automatic upgrade, and ever since then, it has been crashing repeatedly and I can't do anything with it. I've tried to make sure all the plug-ins are up-to-date, and I'd really rather not clear out my history since I don't want it to mess up my session restores. It was just fine before the update went through, so I'm not sure what changed to cause the problem.
Here are the most recent crash IDs, going back to when the problem began:

Can you try disabling hardware acceleration and see if it still crashes?
- Click the menu button and choose Options
- Select the Advanced panel and the General tab.
- Uncheck Use hardware acceleration when available.
- Click the menu button and then click Exit.
- Start Firefox the way you normally do.
More details here - Turn off hardware acceleration
I saw that suggested to someone else, and did try it! But, sadly, no, that doesn't seem to have made any difference.
Reading more crash reports I see two themes - graphics drivers and websites. Here are some things to try before abandoning your saved sessions:
I too have had frequent crashes since firefox updated itself to version 29. I have Win XP SP 3 and have disabled hardware acceleration and done the reset. The program is still crashing. I have reluctantly installed google chrome as my default browser. Hopefully you can get Firefox back to a useful state again soon! Just in case it is helpful, I include the crash id's from FFX.

Hi- Thanks for your suggestions. I will try running FFX in safe mode for a few days and let you know!
