It'll be something you've installed like a toolbar or something, that's crashing it. What version of FF is installed? 46.01?

I'm using it to reply, works fine. Look in addons and see whats there (thats not meant to be there). And if ccleaner is installed go to tools / browser plugins / firefox.

Click on save to text file. Copy and paste what comes up in here

Yep still using it no problems. I actually use Firefox, Edge, IE, waterfox (a variant of FF) and on the odd occasion Chrome.

If FF is crashing its got a problem someplace, try running it with add ons disabled, see if it plays up.

Have a read troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode (https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode) If it works OK you have to disable all the add-ons and try again normally, you can then turn them back on one at a time till it crashes again.

FF46.0.1 bl**dy slow on XP, W8.1 and W10 here.

Edge is instantaneous on W10.

Chrome close behind Edge on 3 pcs'.

I do, no problems on three computers. If I want to send a link to someone from Chrome, can't do, Never liked IE.

FF seems to be crashing on program close (loosing tabs), something that has not been prevalent in the past, but otherwise OK.

I could never quite grasp why so many confine themselves to one browser program. The advantages of having several to choose from are significant for me. Aside from checking/testing pages, getting around cookies easily is another advantage. Interesting to see that range of browser programs mentioned by others forumites. (I'd not heard of waterfox before - must have a shufti)

Stable as and been using for years both since both came out i.e Waterfox & Firefox although more Firefox these days now 64bit version finally out.....I use all browsers at work and home and find Firefox always fastest and most responsive etc...No issues....most likely a toolbar or some plugin you have installed etc....Firefox don't like toolbars...

getting around cookies easily is another advantage.

Don't need a second browser for that, most browser's private modes (InPrivate, Private Browsing, Incognito) essentially create a clean slate with no cookies. :)

Just to throw my 2 cents worth in I have started using Comodo IceDragon which is also based on Firefox.
Seems to have reasonable reviews

FF crashing may just be a symptom of an unstable PC . Try uninstalling & re-install the latest version.
Try a refresh/reset

Otherwise ,it may crash if you have 10+ tabs open, on webpages full of crap ,adverts, movies & popups :-)

Still my primary browser on Windows and very happy with it. I haven't read the thread, but I'm sure that someone has given instructions on how to reset FF, that's the first thing to try. :)

Using Firefox 46.01 on Win10 64bit on both laptop and desktop with no problems whatsoever.
I like it mostly because of Ad-Block+, easily customized, and very easy to email a link.

me on many pc's and for many years since it first came out without problems.....and it'll be a plugin most likely causing the issue from what I have found previously...won't be Firefox itself....
