Ubuntu: Ubuntu 14.4 Firefox crashes



Question:

Last week as usual I updated using software updater, ever since then Firefox has been crashing every few minutes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it and still get the same issue.

error Add-ons: ubufox%40ubuntu.com:3.0,%7B972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd%7D:39.0,langpack-en-ZA%40firefox.mozilla.org:39.0,langpack-en-GB%40firefox.mozilla.org:39.0  AsyncPluginInit: 0  BuildID: 20150629114848  CrashTime: 1437249180  EMCheckCompatibility: true  FramePoisonBase: 7ffffffff0dea000  FramePoisonSize: 4096  InstallTime: 1437248944  Notes: OpenGL: nouveau -- Gallium 0.4 on NV84 -- 3.0 Mesa 10.1.3 -- texture_from_pixmap    ProductID: {ec8030f7-c20a-464f-9b0e-13a3a9e97384}  ProductName: Firefox    ReleaseChannel: release  StartupTime: 1437248944  Theme: classic/1.0  Throttleable: 1  URL: https://www.facebook.com/groups/169400596589179/388879494641287/?notif_t=group_activity  Vendor: Mozilla  Version: 39.0  useragent_locale: chrome://global/locale/intl.properties  

This report also contains technical information about the state of the application when it crashed.

Can't figure out what's causing it to crash.


Solution:1

I can guess the cause of the crash is a addon:

error Add-ons: ubufox%40ubuntu.com:3.0,%7B972ce4c6-7e08-4474-a285-3208198ce6fd%7D:39.0,langpack-en-ZA%40firefox.mozilla.org:39.0,langpack-en-GB%40firefox.mozilla.org:39.0  

Usually when Firefox updates these need to be upgraded, and this is usually done automatically, but in this case it won't. To try and fix it:

  • Start Firefox in Safe Mode - you can probably also do this using the command
    firefox -safe-mode in terminal, and then selecting Safe Mode. Then try to uninstall or disable the problematic addons in the Extensions/Languages sections of the Addon Manager. Close Firefox and open it again to see if it worked.

  • Make a new profile (use firefox -P), or reset firefox (use firefox -safe-mode again, but select Refresh). This is issue probably is just with the one addon so I would recommend trying normal Safe Mode and trying to disable it first.
