Firefox 34 is constantly crashing, at random intervals. Sometimes the crash occurs as soon as the browser starts, sometimes it'll be fine for a couple of minutes, sometimes it's an hour.

I am using an AMD GPU with the proprietary driver on Linux.

Flash is disabled.

What I have tried:

Disabling hardware acceleration

Disabling all add-ons

Creating a new profile

Re-downloading the package

Crash signature:

The issue started in version 32-33, I don't remember which.

I don't know if it's related, but HTML5 x.264/MP4 playback has stopped working as well. Now I am only able to play webm video.

The crashes seem to happen more frequently when browsing YouTube.
