It doesn't matter what site I'm on and it even happens sometimes when the browser is minimized and not being used. The window will disappear as if I've hit the close button, then when I start the browser again it usually brings my tabs back up or shows me the "This is embarrassing" window. I'd say it happens about every half an hour.

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The Reset Firefox feature can fix many issues by restoring Firefox to its factory default state while saving your essential information. Note: This will cause you to lose any Extensions, Open websites, and some Preferences.

To Reset Firefox do the following:

  1. Go to Firefox > Help > Troubleshooting Information.
  2. Click the "Reset Firefox" button.
  3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is done, it will show a window with the information that is imported. Click Finish.
  4. Firefox will open with all factory defaults applied.


Further information can be found in the Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings article.
