Firefox crashing randomly

Firefox has been crashing completely randomly for me as of late. Randomly, when a page loads, the entire thing will just crash completely for no explained reason, and it only crashes when loading pages.

Any ideas?

That happenned to me with a recent upgrade. I did a full uninstall. Removed the Mozilla program folder, and downloaded+installed the latest version from scratch.

Then of course, it always good to have a good backup browser. Because IE sucks so much a$$, Chrome is your best bet, or Opera if you like being esoteric.

Also ensure your OS hasn't all of a sudden taken to blocking FF when launching, which can happen with certain types of malware.

You might want to try creating a new profile and use that for a bit to see if you're using some unstable setting or plugin. They are in separate folders from the binaries.

acdcfanbill's advice has worked for me in the past. Turned out I had a plug-in that pulled in a bad update.
