Firefox crashes and restarts my computer all the time.

What happens: Suddenly the screen just goes black and my PC boots up again. Like the power was cut for a second.

When does it happen: It started in the last quarter of last year. It happens randomly when firefox is open and multiple times a day! It does not matter whether there is heavy load on the system or just few pages are open and I'm not even doing anything. I think it has happened only once while gaming (but the firefox was open that time). And generally with heavy workloads (gaming/solidworks) the PC runs just fine. Since it started I have done two clean installs of Win 10, "refreshed" the firefox, tried disabling all extensions, disabled hardware acceleration. The crash still happens.

The crash: The windows event has two errors after reboot: Event ID 6008 and 41. The crash happens so suddenly, there are no crash logs when windows boots up. It seemed so odd that I started to suspect my PSU is broken. BUT THEN I used edge browser and my computer didn't crash for a WEEK.

I miss using firefox to sync my stuff between mac, android and windows without having to log into big corporation account. But since starting to use firefox again, the crashes are back just as before.

Any Ideas how to fix this?

Since yesterday, I did the update to FF84, FF permanently crashs - not even the crash manager opens thereafter. I run FF upon a Windows 10 Home 1909 system. I have tried re installation - no effect I have run FF from a differen Account - same problem I have startet FF in secure mode - same problem

I have found the dump files at AppData\Local\CrashDumps but as FF does not run, I have no idea how to analyze it.

I am in despair and soon so far that I switch to Crome...

Has anyone any idea? Thanks, magu

Upon the subject action, Windows 10 takes a system/memory dump, sends it to Microsoft, and automatically restarts. Firefox appears to be initializing for about 3 seconds (after clicking its shortcut) and then the crash occurs. The display of the initial Firefox landing page is not obtained.

The blue screen of death (BSOD) has this message: KMODE EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED

Also, the networking software (NETGEAR) is rendered inoperable and must be re-installed upon Windows restart. Otherwise, my system is stable. Maintenance is regularly applied as it becomes available.

Firefox was a delight to use. But now not so much, as it's unavailable as described above.

If anyone has a fix, or a suggestion for obtaining one, it would be gratefully appreciated. Thanks!

I do not know if there is a solution; but on my Windows 7 this browser crashes the whole OS when I do anything with Google and its features. GMAIL on it gets the most use; and the signin and logging out are times that are worrisome. However, Google crashes all my browsers; so it was not enough to remove Chrome. When SeaMonkey crashes, it only crashes the program without shutting down the whole OS. Solutions, anybody? I am posting on my Mac Catalina, but have to keep Windows 7 running.

Hello, wondering if anyone else can replicate this problem or knows a solution, as its quite alarming that opening a web page should cause the whole system to immediately shut down.

The web page (tbf, advert heavy clickbait nonsense) concerned is:

I just recently moved from Win 7 to Win 10 (x64). The Win 7 install was getting unstable and I was getting blue screen crashes a couple of times a week. I suppose it's possible it was Firefox related, but Firefox seemed to work OK.

Since the upgrade, Firefox has been unstable in a very odd way I haven't seen before. I've been using Firefox and its predecessor Netscape since 1995 when I was using a beta version of Netscape.

Sometimes Firefox will crash and then refuse to restart, but most of the time the problem is I can get it to restart, but then if I close Firefox and try to reopen it, it will refuse to restart. If I copy over a backed up profile it will usually start at least once and may run OK for a couple of days. But when it crashes, I can't get it going again without copying over a backed up profile. Though that can be hit and miss too. Sometimes a backed up copy that worked before won't work, but another backup will.

When I upgraded I was on, I think 70.0 esr, but I upgraded to 78.8.0 esr (both 32 bit) trying to get it stable again. I tried installing 78.8.0 esr x64 and i was able to quit and restart, but it crashed and refused to restart a few hours later.

I tried Safe Mode and it starts in Safe Mode, even with a bad profile, but when I turn off all add-ins in Safe Mode and try to start normally, it won't start if it's not starting. Hardware Acceleration is off (it's been off the entire time).

On the most recent crash I deleted the profile that crashed copied over the last working profile files, but it still wouldn't start. I then went back to the Win 7 installation profile, copied over the crashes and datareporting directories of the profile and it started.

I've tried copying small pieces at different crashes and copying over something that worked the time before sometimes works, and sometimes doesn't.

Has anybody ever seen a problem like this one? And if so did they manage to fix it?

When opening any version after 89, Firefox opens then is unresponsive to any action. I have to force quit. I copied the crash report that is sent to Apple. It is a 500+ page Word document. The only solution is to reinstall v89.0.2 and it works fine. Then not allow automatic updates.

Any suggestion appreciated.

I have an older PC but it was working fine with Netflix and Prime Video until this latest update (v89.0). It seems that when I try to go to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video the browser crashes almost instantly, and usually shuts my whole computer off. It doesn't go to a blue screen, the computer just decides it's time to reboot. Now again, I'm using an older machine (and I can't afford a new one), but this was never a problem until this latest version of Firefox.

I am also not a fan of the aesthetics in this version and I'm wondering if I can revert back to an older version where the crashing was less frequent. Any help would be appreciated.

I have been experiencing lately quite few Firefox crashes that bring down the entire (desktop) Windows OS in a brutal manner: complete system lockup, instant reboots (no blue screen).

These seem related to the audio and video interactions with the host system - streaming musinc online (siriusxm.com) or engaging in graphic intensive activities. This supposition propmpt me to perform few hardware tests - memory, GPU, audio card,etc. Everything checks out fine with the basic test and diagnostic tools I've used.

The worse system crashes have happened while on the https://buckhill.com/tubing-2/snow-tubing/ wesbite trying to purchase passes. Along the way for signing the waiver, the site brings up a graphical pad for capturing the guest's signature using the mouse. Several attempts have ended with horrendous system crashes (I had to locate the hardware reset button on my system, which took a while), never in the same spot in the process. Similar issues have happened on my wife's laptop (Windows 10 OS) while using Firefox on this site. I had to use a different browser to complete this purchase, for both my kids sanity and my system health. (for whomever is interested in troubleshooting this site, just follow the prompts and add guests - the purchase step is the very last one).

I should mention that Firefox' own crash page (about:crashes) shows no sign of any crashes. Other times, the Firefox window just dissappears without any warning, and no traces of crash information in Firefox nor OS event system. My system is configured to save a memory minidump in the event of crashes - there were none.

In this context, I could be wrong, but narrowed the culprit down to Firefox itself. In my opinion, whatever Firefox is doing to bypass OS basic protection mechanisms (and let's be honest - on Windows these can be better) and cause such hard failures are a dangerous vulnerability that should be investigated.

Any ideas and suggestions on diagnosing this or what to capture for aiding with troubleshooting, are appreciated.

Firefox completely crashes my computer. It hangs, and won't even shut down properly. Even when I do shut it down I am forced to open my task manager and force it to shut down. When using facebook it completely ceases to function. It fails everywhere, on many websites, and on several different machines. I was a stubbornly loyal Netscape user, Mozilla user, and Firefox user since the 1990s. I've always appreciated what they've tried to do, but Firefox has become a miserable failure, and I HATE that I am now forced to use Google Chrome or some other monopolist browser. FIX THIS SHIT.
