Mozilla & Gecko clones Mozilla's Dave Mason, when asked by what the most scary part of Firefox' roadmap is: "It has to be Firefox OS which is a huge step for Mozilla.

Coming from someone who has no issues with Firefox at the moment but has had in the past, have you tried to empty the cache, and if it doesn't work delete your user profile ? (Should be somewhere in AppData, be careful that all settings and extensions will be lost)

I remember that a few times in the past, I suddenly experienced lots of Firefox crashes and had to perform this last operation to restore sanity. This was not caused by browser updates in most cases, so my personal guess is that the combinations of frequent hardware failures and unjournalized filesystems that I had at the time is to blame for this.

Also, if this does not solve the problem and you have extensions installed, you may want to try disabling those one by one and see if some are to blame for this.
