The majority of times (80% of the time) that I close Mozilla Firefox v39 I get the Mozilla Crash Reporter. This happens on a variety of webpages and I haven't yet found a similarity. This is never stopping me from doing anything that I need to do but it is a bit annoying to close the browser only to be greeted by a crash report.

This started happening after I was infected with some malware. I have since ran several tests with various free malware checkers and the tests have all shown clear.

I have tried to reset Firefox, update all plug-ins, uninstall Firefox and reinstall, clear all data in the history (everything that can be check-marked) and still the issue persists. I'd rather not do a clean install of Windows for such a small issue as this. I feel this should be easily solvable.
