Ever since the end of February Firefox has had a habit of crashing on me at random, usually just a tab or so but there's been times where the whole browser just ups and crashes. I am using Firefox 73.0.1 (64-bit) on a Windows 7 Professional computer.

1. This mainly occurs when viewing a video (mostly Youtube), scrolling down on pages, or opening or switching to a new tab.

2. Beforehand if there were issues it would take a few seconds to load the tab, now it just instantly crashes.

3. I've tried uninstalling and re-installing, clearing everything, turning off add-ons, and changing options and nothing has worked. At best, I've stopped it from crashing on launch and disabling add-ons.

4. This issue does not happen on other browsers, nor has my computer shown any unusual behavior.

5. It did not start immediately with the new update, which I got the 20th. It started occurring a week or so after.

Constant tab crashing.

Turning off Multi processing but then crashed whole Firefox. Updated graphics, Reset firefox, re-installed Firefox but still crashing.

Tab crashing is not giving any crash reports.

I am on Linux, the kernel version is 3.10.0-663.el7.x86_64 (Red Hat 7.4 beta). I am working through ThinLinc version 4.8.0, Build 5456. When I start Firefox I get a tab indicating a crash. When I am logged directly on the machine, not through ThinLinc, it work fine. I copy the error message I get in my shell from the crash:

Everything worked fine until yesterday. At first it was tabs crashing but that quickly turned into Firefox crashing. I haven't installed anything, haven't done anything that would cause it as far as I know.

At first it was 2-4 minutes the tab would crash. Then it turned into Firefox crashing every minute or two. Now it crashes within a few seconds of startup.

Here's what I've done to try to resolve it. I've updated flash player, graphic drivers. I've disabled add-ons, started Firefox in safe mode, tried clean install, tried different version of Firefox. It's crashing constantly.

What else is there to do?

Firefox version: 63. (I've tried 64 and results are same). OS: Windows 10 64 bit.

Hi, I have a Mac 10.11.6 and for whatever reason I cannot get Firefox to open. I received a message at the bottom of my browser during the last use saying something to the effect of click restore/restart to improve speed. I did this and now Firefox will not open. I get a Mozilla crash reporter screen even when I try launching it in safe mode. I tried the refresh option (by holding shift + option on startup) and still get the crash report screen. I reinstalled it multiple times, tried deleting it and doing a clean install, deleted my profile and created a new one, and even deleted my anti virus program. Nothing seems to be working and I am very eager to get my preferred browser working again.

Thanks very much for your insight!

Dear all,

I am having a severe issue using Firefox on Linux. That is when I use the browser to watch YouTube it is almost guaranteed that the entire system will hang, become unresponsive and then require a hard reset.

I'm using Xubuntu 19.04.

The laptop is a ThinkPad T450. It has a standard configuration except that I installed a SSD. I ran a comprehensive self-test using the Lenovo BIOS' testing feature and everything was given the all-clear. I note that the same problem doesn't occur on my preferred WebKit-derived browser which is Vivaldi.

I'm not the only owner of a T450 in my household. Curiously, this other T450 which runs Xubuntu 18.04 (LTS) does not manifest the same issue. This system also uses Firefox as its browser.

I was advised to check the system logfiles. The only mention of anything likely in the logfiles is the xsession-errors file:

(xfce4-panel:1291): xfce4-panel-CRITICAL **: 21:01:45.450: panel-window.c:2245 (panel_window_active_window_geometry_changed): expression 'WNCK_IS_WINDOW (active_window)' failed.

Reference to my post on the Ubuntu forums: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2426276

I'd greatly value any help to solve this issue. I'm willing to look at other logfiles or send over any additional information that might help diagnose this problem. Anything to help me get back to using my browser of choice!

Kind regards. Thran

Hi Mozilla,

I am experiencing repeated crashes when opening Firefox (both standard and developer versions). The crash happens within 30 seconds of opening Firefox. The behavior just before the crash involves a slight hang, and then a crash.

I am able to debug with Visual Studio, and can see the following error message: Unhandled exception at 0x00007FF836A36FB1 (xul.dll) in firefox.exe: 0xC0000005: Access violation reading location 0x0000029F7A02DFDC.

I have tried many, many avenues, including: - Freshly reinstalling Windows 10 Enterprise - Running Firefox as Admin - Starting Firefox in Safe Mode - Refreshing Firefox - Reinstalling Firefox - Disabling/Enabling hw acceleration - Running a malware scan - Installing all necessary Windows updates

If I have some time, I will likely get the latest source and run it locally in debug. However, I am a C# dev, and not a C++ dev, so it may not be all that helpful.

Firefox Details: v62.0

PC Details: i7-7700K GTX 1080 16GB DDR4 @ 3200 Samsung Evo 960 EVO

The Firefox AppData folder is empty, and I am unable to find a proper crash report for you, but I do have a disassembly from Visual Studio. It seems to be crashing in _sk_gather_bgra_hsw().

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Please let me know if you need any further info.

Cheers, Keagan

Hello everyone.

I'm trying this again. Firefox crashed when I was logged in so I'm doing this in Chromiun now. I'm running Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64 bit. Firefox is 56.0 64 bit. About one week ago, I received a notice about an Ubuntu update so I installed the update as always. After the update, on certain websites, they start to load then Firefox crashes. I was on this site eailer and typing this when I opened another tab to see what plugins were installed and it crashed. I was using Adblock, Noscripts and other plug-ins. I disabled each one, one at a time, and it still crashed. I then did a refresh on Firefox to have only the minimum orginal plug-ins installed. It still crashes. I then totally removed Firefox and deleted the /.mozilla directory and reinstalled. No change.

Now, The default plugins are: OpenH264 Video Codec provided by Cisco Systems, Inc & Shockwave Flash

    The default Extensions are: Safe Browsing Version 4 (temporary add-in) & Ubuntu Modifications Legacy

If I disable them each by hand, Firefox will still crash. If I disable them by restarting in safe mode, Firefox will work as normal. Here are at least two sites that won't load:

It started 4 days ago that some websites like www.reuters.com didn´t load. Also downloading a file only generates files with 0 Bytes. If he loads a website, then the load sign runs permanently. Today the browser can´t start any more. He only generates crash reports. After he asked me to restore the last session, a new crash reports appear.

Come and IE work. However I hate them and want my Firefox back. Please any hints to resolve this

Hello, my problem is as follows:

I had a session open when i updated Firefox. It closed the browser however Firefox didn't show me any indication that it was updating so i tried open it again. Right that moment the update window showed up and somehow Firefox crashed. When i opened it again, my previous session was lost and i have no way of retrieving it. There is no option popping up in the menu that says 'Restore Session' and other methods that i have seen online are a bit difficult to understand.

Also the sessions i can recover are all after Firefox kinda crashed/Firefox updated so i don't know how to get my old session back. The session i want to recover is before i updated to Firefox 62.0 on the 10th, September. (Time stamp would be around 5:30pm CEST)

Oh and i have seen this thread (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1204253) and i tried doing it, but the session i want back is not there.... does that mean worst case scenario happened and i won't be able to get my session back? ;____;


This may be a dumb question but would reseting my windows version to 9th, September help? I mean it would erase the update i did for Firefox and should (as much as i know <.<) also reset the setting for Firefox to yesterday's ones correct? But would that help since my problem is on the net surface and not a computer problem >.>


ps: i wanted to upload pictures but it somehow doesn't let me, so if you need them, please tell me and i will try to send them.

Firefox Suddenly and Randomly Shuts Down

About 1 week ago, Firefox started to randomly and suddenly shut down. It typically happens once, max twice a day and when it happens, it closes all open tabs without giving any warning and without showing any error or crash report. The shut down is triggered by a click, typically a click to open a link, or open a new tab - that is, it does not shut down by itself. Firefox does not reopen by itself, you must reopen it. When it reopens, it goes back to the latest situation prior to the shut down event, ie, it reopens all closed tabs and the closed web links - as if it were a crash. I did not find any particular pattern (ie, websites, time of the day, open apps, amount of time online, etc) - it appears rather random. No other issues reported - slow system, unwanted downloads, opening unwanted links, etc

EVENTS HAPPENED RECENTLY THAT MAY BE RELATED 1. My AV Provider (Bitdefender) sent me a message saying that it is about to stop supporting my OS (Win XP) 2. Yesterday another one of my AV shields (Malwarebytes Antiexploit) reported that an exploit code was blocked in Firefox, but without giving more details 3. Yesterday morning my PC asked me to log in by clicking on my user name. The thing is, I have never activated this option, as the PC is set to go directly onto the desktop, without asking to click on usernames, or typing passwords. After yesterday, it did not do it again.

WHAT I HAVE DONE - Run a full scan with Malwarebytes Antimalware - no issues found - Checked if all the installed plugins were up to date - no issues found - Opened Firefox in safe-mode - currently checking if the issue persists - Checked the Firefox crash log - no crash reported

OVERVIEW OF MY SYSTEM AND APPS - OS: Win XP SP3 32 Bit. Updates are still coming, mostly for MS Apps (Excel, Word, etc) - Browser: Firefox 52.3.0 32 Bit - AV running in the backgound: Bitdefender Free 1.0.21.1109 updated today; Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit Beta 1.10.1.24 updated - AV on-demand: Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free 2.2.1.1043 updated - Plugins: as per list below

I initially suspected an exploit/ malware, but did not find an evidence as of now. Course of action suggested? Thanks.

I had many tabs open at once in only one window. My disk came to 0 bytes of free space and the browser closed suddenly after some time. Even before freeing up space, I could reopen it and even restore my session. After deleting the folder /var/cache and restarting the OS, Firefox just wouldn't open, it just crashes, offer the option to quit or restart but clicking restart just makes the Mozilla Crash Reporter to open again.

Crash ID: bp-cc3c0dc7-ca8c-489c-bc26-6c2410180616

have tried all the fixes this system could throw at me, honestly had tried 98% of them myself already, more then once. anyways my issue is this sites like CNN.com, IGN.com, mozilla.org (and some but not all related sites) will either hang and load very slowly or not at all. This issue just started out of the blue a couple days ago. i did not load any new software or patch anything as far as i know (can't speak for auto-updates) I do not have this issue in IE at all. Things i have tried to fix the situation:

1. Ran malware-bytes, spy-bot, norton anti-virus (also disabled all them to ensure no cofilicts there either)to find mal-ware or virus....nothing found

2. uninstalled firefirefox also deleted firefox folders in C:/users/(username)/appdata/local and roaming as well as from my C:/program files (x86)..I then reinstalled Firefox

3. Disabled hardware accleration and also tried it on.

4. Ran in safe mode

5. ran CCleaner

6. changed my firefox profile

7. reset firefox

8. did a system restore

9. did a registry fix check and repair

I might be forgetting a few but as i said i read ever bit this trouble shooting program threw at me and tried it. I am totally at a loss as i can usualy clear things like this up myself. I would really like to get this working and short of the very unappealing, possibly ineffectual re-installing windows, i am out of ideas.

I currently run Windows 8.1 on my laptop. I upgraded to Firefox 73 a couple of days ago, and now when I open Firefox, I immediately get an error box and the message that "Firefox has stopped working". I have uninstalled Firefox, rebooted my laptop and reinstalled Firefox, but get the same results. I also uninstalled 3 Microsoft KB updates that ran on the day that Firefox initially failed. Nothing seems to fix the problem. I also run Google Chrome, and have not issues with it. Here are the details of the problem: Problem signature:
