Why my Firefox browser crashes all the time?

Question: My Firefox browser is  crashing a few times every hour. It happens more when I open a large size page in a new tab and then try to close it again. if i have a large page open in a new tab, and then i close it, my Firefox crashes. How can I fix this?

Answer: Your browser might be crashing because of one of the following reasons.

  • Addons causing the problem
  • Addons causing the problem after an update in Firefox version
  • Firefox has got corrupted
Solution: 
  • Run Firefox in Safe mode which will turn off the Addons/extensions. If browser does not crash in Safe mode it means that there is an issue within the extensions/plugin you have installed. There is a rare possibility that hardware accelerator i.e video card has some problem. You can test it by turning off the hardware acceleration Tools -> Options -> Advanced / General
  • If an Addon is not compatible with the Firefox version, please uninstall it and test the Firefox again for any crashes.
  • If both of the above solution does not work please remove/uninstall Firefox, delete all the enteries from operation system. Remove all enteries from Registry, Delete all the directories and related files. And then install a fresh copy of your Firefox Browser.
  • McAfee antivirus component Site Advisor can also cause the problem. You can use McAfee unistaller to remove this component.
