Has any one else had problems with firefox crashing?

I use opera too never IE reluctant chrome user. But lately FF seems to crash.
I have my password on this site and as I do not have my little book of passwords I need to use FF.
When it crashes it loses my password and I have to get in through previous history.
Any clues?

Udate to the latest version of firefix, I have had no problems at all with it. It does like to be regularly updated, and I havead a lot of issues with out of date Frirefox installations.

If you are already up to date try the following:

In Frirefox press the Alt key. A new menu should appear at the top of the window "File Edit View History " etc

Click on Help

Select "Restart with Add Ons Disabled" from the drop down

This should solve your problems.

I use Firefox and I can't remember last time it crashed for me.....
Having said that I am on Linux though :hardhat:

If you are on windows, then resetting the defaults, Disable all plugins/addons etc should cure it. Then slowly re-enable any plugins.

Not sure where firefox is with sandboxing on Windows tbh.

I won't use Chrome because it leaks too much information back to google and pesters you to login in all the time :Doh:

No problems.. with FF 29.01 running as provided.

ditch the add-ons, at best they slow down browsers, too many will inevitably cause crashes.
