Firefox crashes constantly since the update of 31.0

Firefox always crashes in safe mode and crashes with disabled plugins. I have not accelerated by hardware and I always use Malwarebytes.

Firefox will open and load my home page Google, but as soon as I click on a search result or visit a Web site, it crashes. It will crash if I try to reload a tab. He'll crash trying to reboot from the Crash Reporter. I have to quit Firefox and reopen to my homepage.

Here's the latest report of crash: bp-6fe9b806-516b-4dda-907b-a1b532140806

  • After the last update (today), Firefox crashes constantly. How can I uninstall this last update? I tried to create new profiles and they also crash.

    Firefox worked earlier today (August 19, 2013 6:30 pm EDT). When I opened Firefix after it IS 9, Firefox has attempted to perform an update. No error was given, but now Firefox does not start. Run a Windows 8 machine with all the updates and current security with no malware known on my system software.

    When I try to start Firefox, the system shows the circle of"work", but then nothing. I created a new profile and got Firefox to start, but whenever I try to go to a website, Firefox crashes.

    The last 2 reports of incidents of today:
    InstallTime20130814063812 (content: 1376962029)
    LastCrash (content: 1376969373)

    Firefox IS working with Windows 8 in Mode safe (I got a message saying Firefox had not been closed properly) with a new profile. If I used an existing profile, Firefox would start and then close when I went to ANY website or any just not start. I shouldn't be no CRASH REPORT has been generated, just a code updated in the LASTCRASH file.

    I have created a new profile, turned off all plugins, redonfigured my security suite of network to start automatically and restarted normally. When Windows came, I launched Firefox with the new profile, went to a few sites only to confirm it worked and then activated the security suite. No problems. I then reactivated some of my plug-ins. I had problems again when all the following plugins have been re-activated:

        -- Java Development Toolkit
        -- RealDownloader Plugin
        -- RealNetworks RealDownloader
        -- Shockwave for Director

    With these off and the new profile, FIrefox is now working normally. Thank you!

  • My new sites pinned tab only display full-screen mode. What happened only since the update of Firefox.

    I have my best sites 'pinned' to the new tab. Since the update of Firefox do show that the first four sites (top line) and I can't drag/release those missing bookmarks.

    I have just discovered that the sites are still there but only appear when I select the mode "full screen".

    Is there a way I can restore the page to show two lines of pinned sites without being full screen mode please?

    It seems that there is a regression with 39 Firefox on the new tab page. A bug report has been filed on 4 and the triage team responded.

    I saw the same thing with the difference in mode full-screen during the test of this "change"; the 'missing' line appear in full-screen - but with the resolution of my screen, I could see two rows of tiles, the 3rd rank was not missing mode full screen.

    Overall, I think you should try the new tab extension tools and see how you like it.

    I use that in a number of my Firefox profiles. Profile where I checked this problem which has been mentioned in a number of discussions of the forum over the weekend that I use rarely - I use it see how Firefox works as "installed", before making a change.

  • Firefox is to be slower than Internet Explorer since the update. Why?

    I upgraded to Firefox, which is my absolute favorite browser and is to be extremely slow. I can't get anything done for what is working on my computer. I am running Chrome. Although this browser is faster than my car, he has few options and is much less easy to navigate than Firefox. Can you help me understand why Firefox is having these problems since the update? Thank you.


    The reset Firefox feature can solve a lot of problems in restaurant Firefox to its factory default condition while saving your essential information such as bookmarks and history.

    To reset Firefox, perform the following steps:

    1. Go to Firefox > help > troubleshooting information.
    2. Click on the button 'Reset Firefox'.
    3. Firefox will close and reset. After Firefox is finished, it will display a window with the imported information. Click Finish.
    4. Firefox opens with all the default settings applied.

  • Why do I get restore window when opening firefox since the update

    Why do I get restore window when opening firefox since the update. I don't want to restore but it appears every time instead of my homepage as shown

    A likely cause is that you first close all Firefox Windows and then close the Firefox application.

    Some noted that closing of Firefox (Firefox > Quit) while the browser window is always open works for them.

    I have Firefox 8.0.1 and since the update to it, some sites, I need to go so that Firefox will not accept certificates which is accepted in the previous version. I can not get the permanent exception and must uncheck permanent

    You can use this button to go to the Firefox profile folder:

    • Help > troubleshooting information > profile directory: opens showing the file

    It is not usually necessary to create an exception for the certificates.

    Possible causes are that a server does not send the full (intermediate) certificate chain or self signed certificates.
