FIrefox repeatedly crashes at startup or just after opening a webpage
Firefox repeatedly crashes on startup or just after opening a new page, I've tried downgrading my browser to FF 18 & the problem still occurs. Firefox won't even run properly in safe mode. I have included the latest crash report: bp-d8715a6c-6208-4420-8df4-cae752130307
Could you try two experiments:
- Start up Firefox with a blank page. Start > Run then paste this and press Enter:
firefox.exe -url about:blank
- Start up in the Profile Manager and create a new profile. Start > Run then paste this and press Enter:
Do either let you run Firefox more normally?
Thank you jscher, the second option worked and it ran fine, cheers for your help.
Hi Spirax, if your new profile works after a restart or two, you may want to start back up in your old profile and use the Reset feature. This is a lot easier than manually copying data to your new profile, although that is another option.
