During class today, Firefox unexpectedly crashed on my Windows 10 PC after downloading a pdf file from my History teacher. Now, when I try to open Firefox, a transparent box quickly appears before disappearing again, not opening Firefox. I have yet to find a solution that has worked.

Firefox keeps crashing, when I boot it up a prompt appears for half a second asking if I'd like to go to safe mode, but the prompt window instantly closes after half a second. I have tried refreshing the app, uninstalling, and reinstalling, and nothing seems to work. The app was working a day before this. How can I get it to work properly again? It is worth noting that I had to ask my parents to allow my computer to use firefox the day before all this happened, but after that, it worked fine. Only now there are crashes every time.

I just installed the Firefox browser using the installer on the official website. When I attempt to open Firefox, even as administrator, the window either quickly opens and closes or doesn't open at all. I have no clue what is happening.

Hello there - hoping for a hand to fix this. Several months ago Firefox crashed while it was in use - void of any update process. Upon reopening, the main window would launch and before any tabs could load it would crash again. I attempted to open in troubleshoot mode with the identical result. I gave it a break and used Chrome but in returning to this issue today the same has occurred. This time after the troubleshoot mode crash, I uninstalled Firefox and re-installed fresh (this was an upgrade from v89 to v92). Upon opening post update the browser crashed again. Each time this happens I have received a crash report screen which I accepted and it was reported as successfully submitted. However, when I open the crash report folder only two appear to have been saved - one old from the first occurrence (6/2021) and one from today(8/10/21). Both of these are linked below for review.

This is on an older Windows 7 machine that honestly I know should be updated but this is only used for light gaming and web surfing and I am not interested in an OS upgrade as I disagree with with the business practices of Microsoft - I find their policies are rather intrusive as a consumer.

I hope I've given enough information about the issue here and my system, thanks in advance for any help!

Firefox ESR doesn't start at all with specific profile: [Child][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

Hello! I am running firefox-esr version 68.5.0esr-1+b1 (from Debian testing) with a bunch of extensions (ublock origin, multi containers, suspend tab, open in browser, all in one sidebar, etc). Yesterday, I was suddenly unable to start firefox. I can see the profile manager and start another older profile, but not the one I really need to open. When I start from a terminal, I see this error message most of the time:

 ###!!! [Child][RunMessage] Error: Channel closing: too late to send/recv, messages will be lost

I have created a new profile and started it with success; after copying all files from the faulty profile, the new one does not start.

I have tried to run with safe mode: still does not start.

I have found https://unix.stackexchange.com/questions/426502/firefox-keeps-crashing-upon-launch/466522 which doesn't help.

https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/recovering-important-data-from-an-old-profile shows me how to copy bookmarks and cookies over. (I am not using any synchronization service.) I would very much like not losing my session (open tabs), but I don't know which file or database is holding it.

I would prefer not to have to spend a lot of time reinstalling and reconfiguring all extensions, but maybe it will be necessary. Thanks for any help troubleshooting this.
