Why is my firefox constantly crashing? It crashes at least once a day.

I am using Mac OSX - not the newest version.

Could be an addon not compatible with your version of firefox, or an addon is taking to long to respond, so it forces firefox to crash. Have you tried removing the addons and seeing how firefox behaves?




What version of OSX are you running?



Here's this as well:

On Mac OS X, sometimes a recurring crash pattern is caused by a preference file being damaged Quit Firefox, then go to your user Library -> Preferences, find the file "org.mozilla.firefox.plist" and move it to your desktop (don't trash it; just leave it on the desktop). When you restart Firefox, a new .plist file will be generated. If the new preferences file is working well, you can trash the .plist file on the desktop.
