    add ProtectedMode=0 to %WinDir%\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash\mms.cfg

    Mine looks like this:

    Code:
    AutoUpdateDisable=0
    SilentAutoUpdateEnable=1
    ProtectedMode=0

    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?

    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?

    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
