Firefox crashes when opening and the crash report I get is Firefox 3.6.3 Crash Report [@ strlen | nspr4.dll@0x15f9f ].

Firefox is crashing or closing unexpectedly
== Description

Firefox 3.6.3 crashes when opening and the Crash Report [[@ strlen [email protected] ]. It was working perfectly fine and the last three days, I am having difficulty in opening firefox. It crashes with the above crash report every time I open. I came across the bad image error and did a clean reinstall multiple times and that did not help. I have firebug and firecookies as an addon.

Usually doesn't immediately crash, although that happens also. Usually hangs, then crashes.
Addons are WHY I use Firefox when it works. I am NOT on the bleeding edge any longer. I could go back to boring, boring, Chrome.

  • Firefox crashes when opening and will not open in safe mode

    Recently FF3 started crashing when opening. It will not open in safe mode as well. I have uninstalled it including deleting the install folder and profile folders as well as registry entries. Upon reinstallation is will still not launch in any mode.
    I have scanned for malware with several scanners and that has not found anything.
    Here is the crash report cause - nsCOMPtr_base::~nsCOMPtr_base() | nsDocShell::SetupNewViewer(nsIContentViewer*)
    Anti-virus is Trend Micro Worry Free for Business. I uninstalled it and Firefox and then reinstalled only Firefox and still get the same thing.
    I do not know what to try next.

  • CS4 all apps are crashing when opening and Mac can't recognize installation CD to reinstall.

    All my CS4 Design Suite applications are crashing when opening. Plus, my Mac won't let me uninstall to reinstall as my G5 Mac OS 10.4.11 won't recognize anything much with the Adobe products. I've been using these apps (legal originals) since January 09 with no problem. Recently received an InDesign file from a PC user that must have been corrupt as it started crashing InDesign. Now everything is crashing. Help!

    You probably don't want to publish your personal info in your posts.
    A PC virus can't affect a Mac. I don't even have virus software.
    since the software does not work in either account there are 2 possibilities. We know its not corrupt prefs because a new account did not work. we know it not some other corruption in the user account. so we have narrowed it down to the actual software or the OS. If it were the applications one or two of them should work. so I would guess it is some thing to do with the system.
    My next step would be to do an Archive and Install of the OS then update. This way you keep all your settings and apps but install a new system and user account. If that does not do it I would reinstall the Creative Suite.

  • .DMP crash when opening a the UDF bar on a customer equipment card CEC

    Anybody every heard of a client crash when opening the UDF bar for a customer equipment card?
    Specifically when using the golden arrows from a service call then opening the CEC UDF bar, it immediately causes a .DMP crash.
    Furthermore, it is only for one user, not for the manager user.

  • Aperture crash when start and the database is damaged

    Hello
    I have been playing around with a trial of Aperture
    My mac crashed when i was importing a big library -my fault, because the hot-
    After that Aperture has not been able to start, until i have deleted the database -moved to a different location-
    Is this the normal behaviour when the database is broken?
    Would be nice if Aperture was able to "keep alive" even when the photo database library was broken
    Something like "Sorry it seems the library has a problem, do you want to create a new one or choose one that actually exists?"

  • CS3 crashes when Opening and saving files - also runs slow

    Today, while using photoshop, it locked up on me & I had to force quit. It then wouldn't open a file either via Bridge or the open menu. I could create a new file, but it would hang while attempting to save.
    I downloaded and ran the FixVCUIFramework, and it allowed me to open and save 1 file, before it started not saving or opening again. Running the Fix again has no effect.
    I switched to another user account, and everything works fine - in fact PS runs much speedier in the 2nd user account than in my main account. I hadn't noticed how slow it had become in opening and saving.
    Any ideas of where to look in trying to repair my main account? I don't want to have to migrate everything over to the 2nd account. Bridge in the 2nd account doesn't allow me to open all my folders, so I'd prefer not to work totally with a new user account.
    PSCS3 10.0.1
    Mac 2GHZ dual 4.5 gig ram
    10 gig external scratch disk - PS running at 71%
    Mac OS X.4.11
    A day without Photoshop is like a day without sunshine ...
    Thanks

    A forced quit WILL create corruption.
    An Archive and Install of the OS will give you a fresh system in your regular account while preserving your settings. Should take you less than 45 minutes.
    But you may want to try deleting your Photoshop preferences and running the 10.4.11 update over your existing 10.4.11 system first. That may work too, and it would be faster.

  • Firefox won't open and the steps in tutorial didn't help nor did uninstalling and re-installing

    Hi,
    I have been thru the tutorial and none of the steps solved the problem I am having with firefox. I just installed it on a new computer and it won't open. It says that it cannot run until process is ended or computer is restarted. Restarting and ending the process don't seem to help. The other tutorial step of deleting the lock file doesn't work either as I could not find a lock file.

    Right... Back to square one.
    - Open Internet Explorer, go to "www.mozilla.com" and download the installer for Firefox 3.6.12 and save it to your desktop.
    - To uninstall Firefox, first make sure no "firefox.exe" processes are running on your machine: Open the task manager (invoke it by pressing ctrl-alt-del and choosing the appropriate option), click on the "Processes" tab, click on the heading "Name" to sort all running processes by name.
    Scroll down the list and right-click on the first "firefox.exe" process picking the "Kill process" option. If there's more than one of them, repeat for all instances of "firefox.exe".
    - Now go to the directory C:\Program Files\Mozilla Firefox\uninstall and double-click "helper.exe". This should uninstall Firefox completely.
    - Now we're in for the hard part: Go to C:\Dokuments and Settings\[Your User Name]\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles. That's where your profile resides. Unless you're using the Profile Manager, chances are you're seeing just one directory "[random string],default". (In my case it's called "4sr92zjz.default", f. ex.).
    If you got any bookmarks you'd like to keep, open this folder, find the file "places.sqlite" and move it to your desktop.
    Now delete the entire contents of your profile folder--you'll need to configure firefox anew. Do keep this window open, you'll need it again in a few moments.
    Go to your desktop, run the installer, start Firefox once, close it again and move your "places.sqlite" file from your desktop to your profile folder.
    Now double-click Firefox and reconfigure it according to your preferences.
    N.B.: Do get "MozBackup". With this application you're able to save and restore a working Firefox profile--for your next mishap ;-)

  • Firefox crashes when opened through the option "Safe Run for Websites" through Kaspersky Internet Security 2012

    Safe Run for Websites in Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 is for browsing websites without the attack of phising sites from storing the date or key strokes. While accessing my online bank account through the said safe run, firefox crashes with an alert msg. by Kaspersky saying "could not initialize the application's security component. The most likely cause is problems with files in your application's profile directory. Please check that this directory has no read/write restrictions and your hard disk is not full or close to full. It is recommended that you exit the application and fix the problem. If you continue to use this session, you might see incorrect application behaviour when accessing security features." How to solve this technical problem? If anybody has a solution, kindly send the same to my email ID : [email protected]

    Kaspersky 2012 not compatible with Firefox 9 yet, can you also notify Kaspersky Techsupport and Kaspersky forum about this issue?

  • Norton removed mozilla's file, plug-in-container.exe, as infected; mozilla now crashes when opened and is unusable

    I tried to update Mozilla as instructed (from 3.6.16 to 4). Download was interrupted because Norton AntiVirus located a Mozilla program file it determined was infected. That file was "plugin-container.exe " WS Reputation.1. Norton removed the file. I am unable to open Mozilla or any program (everytime I go to use my e-mail, www.juno.com, the system crashes and I have to end juno and mozilla.) Please help - I am otherwise reduced to IE!
    S.E.Evans

    That's a false positive from Norton.
    Download and re-install Firefox 3.6.16 over your current installation, this time don't let Norton delete that file.

  • Firefox "hangs" when opened and will not load first page

    I am running Firefox on Mac OS X and when I open it it hangs and does not load the first page. The whole application does not respond so I can't open it in safe mode or anything. I have to keep force quitting it.

    So no help from any one about this?

  • Why does firefox hang when opening and takes several minutes to come up?

    Why does Firefox hang for several minutes before coming up?

    I am also having this problem. When trying to reboot, I get an endless cycle of the BIOS screen, then "MACHINE ERROR", then back. Running the same dmesg command as snoxu results in a similar error message. I am forced to shutdown by holding the power button. Upon rebooting, I get an error message that all extensions have been turned off (using Gnome Shell). Then I have to logout and login.
    Shutting down and then restarting works fine.

  • How do I get Firefox to stop crashing when opening?

    I've been using Firefox for years but now it keeps crashing when opening and all I get is the Crash Report Dialog Box. I'm using version 3.6.12. Downloading it again does not help. Most important is getting back in to save my bookmarks. Some of the FAQ's mentioned creating a a new profile to get around the crash problem, but doesn't that mean Firefox has to be running to get to the Profile Manager?

    Start Firefox in [[Safe Mode]] to check if one of your add-ons is causing your problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Tools > Add-ons > Themes).
    * Don't make any changes on the Safe mode start window.
    See [[Troubleshooting extensions and themes]] and [[Troubleshooting plugins]]
    Firefox doesn't need to be running to access the Profile Manager to create a new profile.<br />
    So if you didn't manage to start Firefox in Safe mode then you can try the other suggestions in these articles.

    I usually have 30 tabs opened, and the memory rises in a unexpected way, so that when it reaches 1.2GB, firefox crashes. Also If, for e.g. firefox is consuming 700MB of memory (with a lot of tabs opened), and if i close those tabs and leave just 2 or 3 opened, the memory usage does not drop and remains at the 700MB. Thanks for your attention. Regards, Ricardo

    I have the same sort of problem with 30-40 tabs, with memory usage growing until crash. It seems a lot worse after restarting from standby mode on Vista - it's often highly unresponsive for a while, then crashes.
    I have a fair few plug-ins running, one of the benefits of Firefox.
    Is their a way I can log memory use of parts of Firefox, particularly the plug-ins?

  • ADE won't let me read DRM books - 4.0 crashes when opening library books (EVERY. SINGLE. TIME) so I installed 3.0 and now I get an "activation error".  I have it authorized to my ID....WHERE IS THE STAFF TO ANSWER QUESTIONS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!?

    Working on a MAC with a Kobo.  ADE won't let me read DRM books - 4.0 crashes when opening library books (EVERY. SINGLE. TIME) so I installed 3.0 and now I get an "activation error".  I have it authorized to my ID....WHERE IS THE STAFF TO ANSWER QUESTIONS?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!!?!? I have wasted hours on this and I'm getting really annoyed.

    Thank you! This worked. But now I copied my files back, which was successful. But the last file did´t work. I even loaded this file from the bookstore. When I try to load this file, ADE crashes and gives me the following report:
