Firefox crash!

Hi folks!

For some time Firefox (64bit version) crashes on my PC while trying to visit
websites hosted on sourceforge! As far as I remember I'm suffering from this
problem since version 6 or 7 and it sill persists in version 10.

Is it a known problem?
Has anyone else encountered this problem?
Try to visit this link http://sourceforge.net/projects/free-cad/files/ in Firefox!

Regards
Nik

Re: Firefox crash!

Maybe because of addons, I didn't have problem visiting sourceforge. But, not with github !?
Always crash whenever tried to open github, maybe because of addons that I have.

I have now disabled all add-ons (plugins and extensions) and have still the same problem!

I have disabled the add-ons (plugins: DjView, Gnome Shell Integration, Java Plugin, Shockwave Flash
and extensions: Greasemonkey, Liquid Information, ScrapBook) one by one (and restarted Firefox
each time) until they were all disabled. But the problem still persists.

Re: Firefox crash!

Solved my problem with github, I need to add akamai.net to my noscript blocklist (dunno why?!).
Maybe you got the same problem too, is it because connection from sourceforge or another site ? (It's just specalution)

I have started Firefox even in Safe Mode and the problem exists as before!

According to http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Fir … -safe-mode
if the crash still happens in Safe Mode, it is not being caused by an extension, theme or hardware acceleration.
See if the Latest Firefox issues article includes a solution and, if it doesn't, try to get help with your crash ID.

How can I find the crash ID?

PS: I have found the following description http://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/Fir … this-crash
     But calling about:crashes leads to the error message "The URL is not valid and cannot be loaded!"
     Any idea?

Re: Firefox crash!

I am having this same problem in Gentoo Linux. Firefox, midori and opera all crash when browsing a sf.net project page. Konqueror works.

Any more clues?

Re: Firefox crash!

I had(hopefully) this problem too, and before some days I visited this thread, tried the posted example links and firefox always crashed. Today I visited another similar thread in which suggested to install jre from AUR. So I uninstalled my current jre and installed this from AUR.
Now I tried again the posted link and firefox didn't crashed. So I think that AUR's jre solved it.
Try it.
