FF on Catalina crashing repeatedly
FF v79 crashes multiple times per day, always when I click on a button, link, or anything. rolling back to v77 did not help. FF Nightly does it too. can't find a fix!
What were you doing at the time? surfing, watching a clip, reading something . . . .

The crash report is several pages of data. We need the report numbers to see the whole report.

Hi Fred, thanks for the quick reply and the suggestion. I have now submitted all of the crash reports that I had not previously sent in. Now when I check on the website about the crash reports, I see that my problem is number one on the list of crashes for version 77.0 on macOS.
Every time my browser crashes with a fatal error, it is because I clicked on something. It does not seem to matter what it was, other than it has crashed on a click on an OK button or a Submit button, it has crashed on hyperlinks that should open a new page. It may be slightly less likely to occur if I try to Open the link in a new tab, but I cannot confirm it. And anyway, that probably wouldn't work when clicking on a button.
I had previously updated to version 79.0 but then downgraded to version 77.0 since the problem seemed even worse on version 79.0. I am also running Firefox Nightly to see if there are any improvements in the works, but it shows the same behaviour and I have also submitted bug reports from that version. I can try to locate a download for version 76.0 and test its behaviour. The problem seems to have gotten more severe in recent versions.
I have looked through all of the crash reports, but with my level of expertise I am unable to identify exactly what is happening, or what actions I can take to prevent reoccurrences. At the very least, I hope the reports are useful for others.

Right, I can see I attached a screen print that was not helpful. Here are the report ID numbers for 10 recent reports. I'm also attaching a screenshot listing a whole bunch more. I hope this is helpful. Thanks.

I rolled back to firefox 76.0 and it seems a little bit more stable. It has only crashed once in several hours of use. The latest crash reports are here:
