Mac OS X High Sierra 10.13.6
Here's the routine with FF on this machine: If FF 68.0.2 is running, after a while I will try to open a new tab and be told "Sorry we need to do one small thing to keep going, FF has been updated in the background, Restart FF" I do so. It opens up a new, clean profile in a new window (About FF now says 68.0.1 in this version of FF, and it downloads 68.0.2 and prompts to Restart FF (again)). At which point it runs "a new helper tool" and re-updates FF to 68.0.2. I then have to mess with about:profiles to go back to my profile. Things then run routinely for a few hours or a day, before the whole routine starts over again.
Alternately, if FF 68.0.2 is not running, if I open it (after opening and closing it several times without issue), I will get a message that "You've launched an older version of FF, Create New Profile or Quit". Create New Profile leads me through the routine above.
Versions of the above routine have happened not just between 68.0.2 and 68.0.1, but also between earlier version updates. That is, this has been going on for months. It does seem in the last couple of weeks that the interval of time has shortened and I'm having to do this routine everyday or even multiple times a day. I have no problems like this with FF on any other machine.
Trashing FF and re-dl'ing from Mozilla. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Cache/Mozilla and Firefox folders. No dice. Trashing FF, trashing Library/Application Support/Firefox/Profiles (and re-signing in to retrieve my existing bookmarks etc and re-setting up View and other Preferences). No dice.
If anyone has any ideas, I'll be grateful, thanks in advance.

Hi Firefox has many crashes, several times a day, on every tabs opened, sometimes only one tab, sometimes all. Tabs are open on facebook, forums, videos, a don't see a recurrent scheme, it happens at any moment, even if I have only one tab open on serveral ones... I tried to start safe mode, doesn't change anything. My device is a recent intel NUC core I3, with 8 GO RAM. My OS is Solus, everything is correctly updated (Solus and firefox)
Last crash report : Firefox 69.0.2 Crash Report [@ firefox@0x1f2ee ] ID: 956dce02-3017-4016-b408-de15e0191009

I know this has been asked before. And solutions included clearing browser cookies, disabling add-ons, resetting the browser, & coping urls and pasting into address bar. The problem is Firefox, not corrupted files. I've completely uninstalled Firefox and deleted all firefox data, profiles, user folders, etc. from my computer. Then used a freshly downloaded installer to reinstall Firefox, with a completely clean profile and no add-ons. I still get this error. I've even tried this with Firefox ESR (Extended support release). This issue needs solved Mozilla! You need to learn to play nice. I hate having to dump my favorite browser, again. This is the third situation since I started using Firefox this type of situation has forced me to dump Firefox completely. Just when I get comfortable with Firefox, it goes back to not working and making users think they are doing something wrong, or the other company has issues. It is usually just Firefox that is broken.
With that realization, I'll have to go with something like Google Chrome, which I hate. At least a virus can be wiped from the hard drive. But Firefox issues are a lost cause.
