Hello everyone.

I'm trying this again. Firefox crashed when I was logged in so I'm doing this in Chromiun now. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit. Firefox is 56.0 64 bit. About one week ago, I received a notice about an Ubuntu update so I installed the update as always. After the update, on certain websites, they start to load then Firefox crashes. I was on this site eailer and typing this when I opened another tab to see what plugins were installed and it crashed. I was using Adblock, Noscripts and other plug-ins. I disabled each one, one at a time, and it still crashed. I then did a refresh on Firefox to have only the minimum orginal plug-ins installed. It still crashes. I then totally removed Firefox and deleted the /.mozilla directory and reinstalled. No change.

Now, The default plugins are: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc & Shockwave Flash

    The default Extensions are: Safe Browsing Version 4 (temporary add-in) & Ubuntu Modifications Legacy

If I disable them each by hand, Firefox will still crash. If I disable them by restarting in safe mode, Firefox will work as normal. Here are at least two sites that won't load:

Hope this helps. Many thanks all. Mike

It is video card drivers doing the crashing it seems by the report "libnvidia-glcore.so.304.135". https://www.google.ca/search?q=firefox+libnvidia-glcore.so.304.135&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&gws_rd=cr&dcr=0&ei=uibjWeDTAYGDjwT_jLvwAg Is a older card I would be guessing from what I see from the search. Can you please do if you can running that OS https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/upgrade-graphics-drivers-use-hardware-acceleration Try No Hardware Acceleration.

As per what FredMcD said you did not answer so post is above again. That should be the solution and if it does not work you might need to go to the Extended Release Version https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/organizations/ as your vid card might not be able to handle things anymore.

Please let us know if this solved your issue or if need further assistance.

Try disabling graphics hardware acceleration in Firefox. Since this feature was added to Firefox it has gradually improved but there are still a few glitches.

You will need to restart Firefox for this to take effect so save all work first (e.g., mail you are composing, online documents you're editing, etc.,) and then perform these steps:

In Firefox 54 and below:

  1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu and select Options (Windows) or Preferences (Mac, Linux).
  2. Select the Advanced panel and the General tab.
  3. Uncheck Use hardware acceleration when available.
  4. Close Firefox completely and then restart Firefox to see if the problem persists.

In Firefox 55 and above:

  1. Click the menu button New Fx Menu and select Options (Windows) or Preferences (Mac, Linux).
  2. Select the General panel.
  3. Under Performance, uncheck Use recommended performance settings. Additional settings will be displayed.
    Fx55Performance-disableHWA
  4. Uncheck Use hardware acceleration when available.
  5. Close Firefox completely and then restart Firefox to see if the problem persists.

This did not help. I sent a crash report bp-da64d2eb-3289-48ca-82e6-e70b01171014.

Thanks so far. Mike
