Firefox crashes

Kuphostiwe

Firefox is crashing all the time. I am using it since Netscape, Phoenix and its first versions..It is worst when I use Gmail - for instance a filter, or if I open more than one Gmail account. Thanks.

Sorry to hear about the crashes. Are you getting the Mozilla Crash Reporter dialog, or the Windows crash dialog? If you are getting the Mozilla Crash Reporter form, your Firefox may have logged some data that would help track down the cause of the problem. You can submit that data to Mozilla and share it with forum volunteers to see whether it points to the solution. Please check the last section of the support article "Firefox crashes - Troubleshoot, prevent and get help fixing crashes" for steps to get those crash IDs from the about:crashes page, and then post some of the recent ones here.

Also and/or meanwhile, could you test in Firefox's Safe Mode? That's a standard diagnostic tool to deactivate extensions and some advanced features of Firefox. More info: Troubleshoot Firefox issues using Safe Mode.

If Firefox is not running: Hold down the Shift key when starting Firefox.

If Firefox is running: You can restart Firefox in Safe Mode using either:

  • "3-bar" menu button > "?" button > Restart with Add-ons Disabled
  • Help menu > Restart with Add-ons Disabled

and OK the restart.

Both scenarios: A small dialog should appear. Click "Start in Safe Mode" (not Refresh).

Any less crashy?

Since you mentioned that you use NoScript, there was a conflict reported with the combination of Firefox 38, NoScript, and Trusteer Rapport which causes crashes. If you aren't doing any imminent online banking, you might try disabling Rapport for a few hours and see whether that helps.

Hi Prasads, the information to the right of the original question shows the poster is already using Firefox 38.0.1, so there isn't any update available.

Primetime is now included with Firefox. It allows you to play DRM-protected content in the native HTML5 video player, if sites support that, if you don't want to use Flash or Silverlight to play it.

If Evernote isn't critical, could you disable that one for a day or so?

You can paste more crash report addresses if you like, in case the causes of the crashes differ.

That one has the signature "OOM | small" which indicates that some process within Firefox wasn't able to allocate enough memory to continue (OOM = Out of Memory). Unfortunately, it's difficult to figure out what Firefox was trying to do when this error occurred to see whether that points to a specific fault. With Windows memory usage at 81% at the time of the crash, it's possible that memory had become fragmented and Windows had to declined Firefox's request for a larger chunk of memory. I'm not sure how to tell. My guess would be that after restarting Firefox, the problem didn't return right away because crashing Firefox often frees a lot of memory.

Okay, then the recently discovered NoScript/Trusteer problem would not be the prime suspect. I actually didn't see any evidence that you run Rapport in that crash report (Rapport likes to inject itself into various Firefox threads).
