Starting around April 20th, I've been receiving up to eight crashes per day of Firefox. I have uninstalled and reinstalled Firefox at least four times, including downgrading the browser to an older version and 100% wiping ALL Firefox-related data. I do a large amount of web development work using Firefox and often have upwards of eight or nine tabs active showing different web pages or different user interfaces to aid in this work, and when Firefox crashes reloading them all takes up to ten minutes (including time to re-find and re-write what I was working on in the first place).
I am using Lubuntu 17.10 with KDE Plasma installed as the desktop environment. Currently, I am on Firefox 58.0.2, however when the crashing started I was using 59.0.2.
The crash reports which I read regularly cite libc-2.26.so, and from hovering over the red bar under it I get "missing symbol" suggesting that the file is missing, but I have verified the file exists several times in various locations across my system. My frustration with this problem keeps growing each time it crashes because at this point I'm fairly certain I've done everything I can to fix this (except asking other people here for assistance).
Here are the five most recent crash reports:
They all point to the same file, though the way it gets there seems to differ.
If anyone has any recommendations or thoughts on why this is happening and what is causing it, I would be very happy to hear them. This crashing has been causing me an unreasonable amount of stress.
If you need more information about my system other than what has been provided, please ask.
