I am very disappointed with Firefox because of VERY FREQUENT CRASHES! I have the following crash reports:

I have run Firefox in Safe Mode, and I still get the crashes, often on a Checkout page after getting an order together. My software is updated to the latest versions available, and I have kept my security up to date. If we cannot find a fix to stop all this crashing, I'll have to give up on Firefox as being highly unreliable. Since I am totally blind, RELIABILITY IS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME!

Note that those reports are from last month from an older Firefox version.

The reports look font related (OpenType), so maybe check your fonts or at least the current default font(s) and possibly try to set another as the default font.
If you have a lot of fonts then maybe uninstall some fonts that you do not need.

Make sure all software is up to date.

Start Firefox in Safe Mode {web link}

A small dialog should appear. Click Start In Safe Mode (not Refresh). Is the problem still there?

Being totally blind and not a "computer guru," I'm even more baffled than I was when I wrote my original question. While I know that several of my crashes were from a month or more back - one even back in April - I understood that you folk wanted the whole list of crash reports, so I sent all of them. But several of the crashes were on July 19, 2020, which was only yesterday. As far as fonts are concerned, I have no idea what is an "OpenType font." The only fonts of which I know on my computer are the fonts that came with Windows 10; I haven't knowingly installed any fonts. I also have no idea how to change the "DEFAULT FONT" in Firefox; I thought it just ran in the default font of Windows 10. Please bear in mind, too, that my screen reader (JAWS Version 2020) just reads out the words and cares nothing about fonts, so I am virtually unaware of what font is running. The only thing I know in this connection is that while the Checkout Page to enter a payment method at Radio Shack crashed every time I got there with Firefox, it worked reliably and didn't crash in Google Chrome, though I HATE google Chrome because it pops up so darned many "Notifications" of which I have absolutely no interest. I'd rather use Firefox, but I have to somehow solve the problem of frequent crashing. I wish there were a way to lock down Firefox so that it would display ONLY ONE FONT, no matter what font came from the page I was trying to read. For my part, I couldn't care less about what font comes in; I just want something that works reliably. So I will appreciate any help, especially any EXPLICIT STEP-BY-STEP INSTRUCTIONS on what to try on my HP desktop PC running Windows 10 at the latest version and the JAWS screen reader. Since I don't know of any control I have over the font the guy chooses to send on his website (Radio Shack's Online Store in this case), I need to know how I can make Firefox or Windows 10 use only one font such as a simple Courier typeface (that's the font they used at the office where I worked before I retired). Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

OK, I found one crash report from Firefox 78.0.2.

  • Firefox 78.0.2 Crash Report [@ RtlSizeHeap | NS_FaultTolerantHeap::APIHook_RtlFreeHeap ]

This crash report looks like related to the Windows block list for injected DLLs.

Boot the computer in Windows Safe mode with network support to see if that has effect in case security software is causing problems.
