Firefox Updates Causing Computer Crashes

Firefox Updates Causing Computer Crashes
It seems over the last six months or so firefox has a new update at least weekly, sometimes , more often. Are other firefox users seeing that. Also, my computer frequently crashes with a blue screen message that  it has encountered a problem. It immediately reboots and is fine......until another firefox update. Is anyone else seeing this?

No I'm not seeing this either in my smartphone or PC versions at this time.

I check occasionally but updates seem less frequent than what you're encountering.

RE: Firefox Updates Causing Computer Crashes
It’s been stable for me, was crashing due to a macOS beta bug about 5 weeks ago, but that was resolved (and not Mozilla’s fault). Firefox has been doing a lot of plugin tinkering though, it could be that you have an obsolete or buggy plugin that’s causing the trouble.

RE: Firefox Updates Causing Computer Crashes
The Firefox updates were a problem for me until I updated my drives to SSD. Many things have been better since.

Now Chrome is the big offender as it tries to protect me from security threats like Apnea Board and does not play nice in Wiki Editor.

I already have an SSD drive. I still have desktop with a mechanical hard drive and the firefox updates never cause a problem with it.

RE: Firefox Updates Causing Computer Crashes
I didn't see if Melman posted it, but I'm guessing he is running Win10. I haven't had any problems with Firefox on both Windows 7 Pro and Linux boxes. It appears that if there wasn't Win10, we wouldn't have any computer problems. I had 2 laptops that had Win10 Pro that are now Linux boxes. They used to get so hot that we'd have to shut them down for fear of starting a fire. With Linux installed on them, they run as cool as if they we off. Also, I happen have the settings for Firefox to turn off the security warnings and limitations.

RE: Firefox Updates Causing Computer Crashes
My laptop that serves as a desktop has Win 10. The issue being discussed isn't affecting mine. FWIW I'm not doing any auto update anything on said laptop. Probably doesn't figure into this but added that info anyway.

Note if we are talking about Windows updates... Dodgy
