Firefox crashes after a while in windows x64. Anyone else has this problem ?
Windows 8 x64, x64 and x32 Firefox works fine and stable.
Yeah not a problem here too, except I'm using Waterfox.
the problem is at your end jon7. Have never hangs, not even once. And you didnt say what version and what addons you are using, so.
No problems with crashing, using Waterfox.
Version 14.01. My addons are adblock plus, noscript, pocket, xmarks, last pass, tile tabs. When i was writing the message i had 5 crashes !!!
@jon7 I experienced same issue. Which is resolved now. I had to uninstall flash and installed v11.4.402.265
I have flash v11.4.402.265 installed.
uninstall that and load Flash Player 11.2
Here are the direct download links for Flash Player 220.127.116.11 (Windows):
ActiveX installer for Internet Explorer on 64-bit systems
Plugin installer for other browsers on 64-bit systems
No trouble here. I have 32 addons, too many to list.
add ProtectedMode=0 to %WinDir%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg
Mine looks like this:
I disabled flash plugin and it keeps crashing. Maybe it's not from flash player.
Did you try FF in its save mode? Or reinstall including deleting the profile folder?
how do i delete the profile folder ?
find this folder:%APPDATA%\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles
Ok i did it, but nothing. I reinstalled firefox 3 times but it keeps crashing !! I don't know what else to do. i disabled all my extensions again to check if an extension is not compatible with windows 8.
ok, sorry to hear. How about other browsers?
Your RTM is modified or as came from the factory?
Google Chrome works ok but i don't like it. I use windows 8 RTM Msdn.
Does the Firefox crash reporter come up after a crash? If so, post a link to the crash report that it sent; a look at the stack trace is the best way to diagnose a crash, instead of blindly guessing...
So, it seems, that you are one of the unlucky guys with issues on FF. Perhaps the Metro version will work well in the near future. I'm sorry not to be able to help you any further on your problem
