My Firefox Browser crashes frequently on Windows 7, despite me having taken the following measures:
- Install the most recent driver for my video card, which is an experimental one since the support for my video card has been discontinued (needless to say, this didn't CAUSE the crashes, because it crashed already before, when the normal driver was installed)
- Disable all Add-Ons (obviously)
- Disable all possible forms of hardware acceleration or anything like that in the options of Firefox (obviosly)
- Re-install firefox a ton of times, partly re-setting all settings
- Enable swapping space on my SSD, even though I got 8 Gigs of RAM and never do anything computationally intense while browsing, and in fact I never really use up even 3 Gigs of it
- Re-installing Windows completely
- Run a virus scan
I should also say that I repeatedly ran a memory error detection tool, which didn't find anything. Curiously, Chromium will also crash frequently, so that Opera is basically the only browser I can run stably; but Opera won't even let me choose my own default search engine and includes a number of very annoying advertisements, whence I'd rather stick to Firefox if possible. Hence, I'd really be grateful for any help.
The following is a random crash report; it's already a bit dated, but I stopped sending them to Mozilla after a while since they didn't really seem to process it: https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/052f952d-87dd-4915-ae25-eff881170606

I got this macbook
13" early 2008 Processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory 4 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM Graphics Intel GMA X3100 144 MB Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)
I have personas and classic theme restorer installed so I can have the tabs not be on top, and a non moving squirrel picture on the frame. I got the computer used last year, maybe the year before, It's been lightning fast, but I use it for business social media stuff, 30 twitter pages open to monitor hashtag pages. while loading other pages I get script slow errors,
The computer gets HOT the fan is beginning to make noise because it always runs. Even if I open one ONE ebay page (in FF) and let it sit there, it will within 20 seconds stop responding and get HOT. As I write this on safari the machine is running fine fan at slow idle, room temp 82 Humid no A/C.
The computer was wiped, new OS NEW FF 39 new when I set up this machine. When using FF along with Safari or Photoshop 12 I think, they can all be on and working, but FF will freeze, the others will work, and the fan runs so fast it lifts the machine off the table.
I have read and tried so many of the message board fixes, including the about:config tell the flash player not to load in each page repeatedly if not used, no help. I take a screen pic, and then restore it to original if it don't work. Something about a plug-in container. Activity monitor also says FF uses more than 450MB ram Really….? Normal….? 1 tab…? Well safari has 418 MB …..
Done some of the fix it's on the FF help pages, turned off plugins safe-mode still spins up the turbines. Not installed a new FF as there does not seen to be a real fix in doing that from what I have read.
Had this machine for a while, use to work fine, lightning fast, no fan unless watching a movie, now I don't even try using youtube…..
No other add-ons readers, tool bars etc. installed. Ever. I basically do the same thing all the time. Also for some reason even though flash is always manually updated, videos even GIF's on twitter now place an error in the center of the post "your browser does not support video playback"
How can the dam thing use more than 100% of the cpu resources anyway……? WTF ???? Using some of the CPU from tomorrow ????? Some kind of payday loan FF has for the CPU ????
Load_payday_CPU_firefox_interest-rate_120%_ :true ??? Where is it ?
I can load other info if anyone gives me an idea where to get it terminal, activity monitor, air traffic control, what have you.

I`m reading shown below, to solve this, NPSWF32DLL should be deleted in Firefox program files folder by looking for a plugins folder, but i cant find "Firefox program files folder". It also says to delete corresponding flash player.xpt, Could you help please?. My computer is Windows 10-Firefox 49.0.2
""Go into the Firefox program files folder and look for a plugins folder. If you find a folder by that name, open it and see if there is a NPSWF32.DLL file in there. If so, delete that file and delete the corresponding flashplayer.xpt file from that folder. Actually, you can delete that folder altogether - Firefox hasn't had that folder for a number of years now, but will use whatever files might be in there from years ago.""

For those who are not happy with Firefox's removal of the downloads display progress bar in the 25 series, you'll be even more unhappy with the 26 series. Even typing about:config and isetting browser.download.useToolkitUI to true no longer works. I sincerely despise companies that DO NOT provide their users OPTIONS, OPTIONS. OPTIONS! Instead of pissing off a sizable number of people who prefer things the way they were. Stop changing things for the worst! I want to monitor my downloads progress without having to take an extra step by clicking on the "Library" tab. Who are you trying to impress?

I installed addons (e.g. adblock lite, ad killer) and when I shutdown Windows and start it again, the addons disappeared in Firefox. I'm using Firefox 40.0.3 non of addons will stay. I restored Firefox to its original state, installed everything again, also did the Malware scan as suggested on a post and the problem stays. So every time I start Firefox, have to install the add ons which is a bit hectic.
Please help me with some solution.

In the blink of an eye, both Thunderbird and Firefox have BOTH STOPPED connecting to the Net. let me share with you what I have done... and what has been unsuccessful this far.
System & Software Pertinents.. Windows 7 x64 System running a i7 Intel CPU, with 8 GB of RAM and a 500 GB Drive. Thunderbird is Version 24.2 Firefox is Version 27.
Here are the specific things that I have done, POST problem, to try and solve..
A) Check firewall settings... BOTH programs are cleared for Bit Passage
B) Check Anti-Virus.... Anti-Virus Disabled.. UNINSTALLED and Registry Cleaned.. still has the problem persisting..
C) Deleted and Reinstalled Thunderbird & Firefox Working Directories (without deleting User Profiles)... Problem still persisting..
D) Created NEW Profile with Profile Mgr in Firefox.. no go...
E) RAN WHOLE System VIRAL/MALWARE Check... .. No infections..
F) FRESH REINSTALLS of Thunderbird and Firefox... NO go...
G) Checked Processes using ENUM and DNS Checks... both check out fine!
H) OTHER browsers connect... OPERA.. Chrome and IE even... Also, Sea Monkey... but not Firefox.
In TRYING to create an e.mail account, Thunderbird's Account Creation interface sits there attempting to connect... no connection achieved...
Any help that you can offer is appreciated!!
Thank you all, in advance!

I had another4 occurrence a few minutes ago. I installed three MS Windows 7 patches, and a reboot was required. After the reboot, Firefox started with only 10 windows - my main window was missing. I ran my script to archive and process the three files - previous.js, recovery.bat, and recovery.js . Then I exited Firefox and re-started it. On restart, all 11 windows were present. I still do not have an answer to these questions :
1) WHY does this occur?
2) When it does occur, WHAT DIAGNOSTICS can I run to help debug this problem? This is clearly a bug in Firefox, and I want it fixed. I assume that I am the only one who is experiencing this problem, and I am willing to do almost anything to help debug this problem when it next occurs.
For those who have not read the other two problem threads - I am always running the latest non-beta Firefox, and I always run with add-ons disabled. This is a Windows 7 Professional 32-bit system.

48.0.2 on Mountain Lion 10.8.5. Fullscreen video on the CNN site plays initially, then stops with a circling round arrow. Lately it has started to do this with that video on the side as you scroll down the screen, as well. Very maddening. No problems on other sites. If I cannot fix this quickly and simply I will have to go to Chrome. Updated flash yesterday, no joy. Suggestions welcome. Thank you

Firefox Version 63.0 (64-bit) Home build PC, 480GB SSD, 2 x 2TB HD's, 8GB Ram.
I have had problems with streaming Channel 4 TV UK for many years. I could only get it to work on Windows. Recently I have Dumped Window 10 - so slow - updates take all day. I now am using Ubuntu 18.04 LTS (using Linux since 2009)
Channel 4 say they Do Not support Linux ?

I tried to create a new user profile to solve the Ugh! Firefox has crashed problem. Now my Firefox application support file has disappeared! And I appear to have lost all my bookmarks. I tried to restore from Time machine. Didn't work.

I'm a little angry right now because I have lost bookmarks of all my life and I need your help to repair it please? I don't know why but somehow, Firefox which I use for years ; (Thx by the way) ; corrupted my data on the run...? I started Firefox again but, no extension, no bookmarks, etc.. I Have kept a backup of all this FF profile, just in case.
My 1st step was to try to get a new profile a import my previous data from Firefox Sync - but somehow , I'm angry at myself again for not understanding how FF Sync work, no data from FFSync updated my data - It stayed like this for a long time , like a new profile without data (I used Xmarks before so I thought it was replacing it).
2nd step: I tried to load all bookmarks-xxx.jsonlz4 located in the bookmarkbackups folder from the FF bookmarks tools (Import / export ; etc). FF seems to see all the bookmarks but can't load them. What is really important here is that FF backed up files for like a month and even my oldest file is unusable : bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 !!
3rd step: I tried to get my data back from FF files, in bookmarks files like bookmarks-2019-01-19-xxx.jsonlz4 from the bookmarkbackups folder. Someone pointed me to use the https://www.jeffersonscher.com/ffu/bookbackreader.html website but all the jsonlz4 files in the bookmarkbackups folder seems corrupted (or the format of files changed and his tool may need to be updated ?)
Example : File name: bookmarks-2019-01-19_2392_mKZssqkWMZt+Mqt-HOi68A==.jsonlz4; Size: 283114; last modified 18/01/2019 à 12:38:42 (failed JSON parsing: SyntaxError: Unexpected token in JSON at position 21928) Note: To try a different file, reload this page Can't seem to acces the step 2 part even after waiting longer
4th step: tried to get old Backup of my FF Profiles with Windows 10 Shadow Copy System, "Shadow Explorer" or "System Restore Explorer" Found 3 backup wich I restored also, all bookmarks seems to get the same problem. I think I'll need to look in to this because It's not official Windows tools, but I'm really disapointed here.. I think I'll put them on md5sum tools to compare them for a start.
5th step : tried to repair my <places.sqlite> a (80MB files) which I found renamed to sqlite.corrupt. With the help of http://www.froebe.net/blog/2015/05/27/error-sqlite-database-is-malformed-solved/ , all I can get is a empty database at the end, but Im not a sqlite expert so if anyone has an idea :-)
So please, any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you. (and sorry for my english)
