It's a few weeks already. Every single day I have multiple crashes. In fact now I have to type in notepad in case firefox crash suddenly.

I thought it was flash and another addon but no. Due to some reason I reinstalled windows and it still crashes. Now my firefox is 30 beta with only adblock plus and flash active. I read somewhere to disable hardware acceleration but it didn't help. I've been using firefox since I don't even remember, 0. something?? This is the first time I'm seriously considering change. Please, please help.

Try Firefox Safe Mode to see if the problem goes away. Firefox Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode that turns off some settings and disables most add-ons (extensions and themes).

(If you're using an added theme, switch to the Default theme.)

If Firefox is open, you can restart in Firefox Safe Mode from the Help menu by clicking on the Restart with Add-ons Disabled... menu item:

If Firefox is not running, you can start Firefox in Safe Mode as follows:

  • On Windows: Hold the Shift key when you open the Firefox desktop or Start menu shortcut.
  • On Mac: Hold the option key while starting Firefox.
  • On Linux: Quit Firefox, go to your Terminal and run firefox -safe-mode
    (you may need to specify the Firefox installation path e.g. /usr/lib/firefox)

Once you get the pop-up, just select "'Start in Safe Mode" Safe Mode Fx 15 - Win

If the issue is not present in Firefox Safe Mode, your problem is probably caused by an extension, and you need to figure out which one. Please follow the Troubleshoot extensions, themes and hardware acceleration issues to solve common Firefox problems article to find the cause.

To exit Firefox Safe Mode, just close Firefox and wait a few seconds before opening Firefox for normal use again.

Safe Mode also disables the JavaScript compilers, so even if your extensions are minimal, it's worth trying for a lengthy period of time to see whether it is more stable.

Are there particular sites or kinds of documents that trigger the most frequent crash signature, the one involving "SelectorMatches"? When I read the bug reports that have been filed about that kind of crash, it seems to be related to applying styles to deeply nested documents, which I would expect to be pretty rare, but if they happen to be common on a site important to you, that might explain why you keep hitting that issue over and over.

In terms of losing input on websites, an extension like Lazarus Form Recovery might be useful:

Hi Afya, There are a few features that are not disabled in Safe Mode: extensions, themes and hardware acceleration. ^ jscher said this already, sorry for repetition.

Even though acceleration is off? D2write and Layers - do not even show up in the crash report. It also looks like one of the rams are unknown, are your drivers up to date? Upgrade your graphics drivers to use hardware acceleration and WebGL

Please also try a if it is not just one site.
