[18.1 MATE 64Bit]-Mozilla Firefox/Thunderbird Keep Crashing?

Post by JeZ-l-Lee » Wed Feb 15, 2017 7:10 pm

Hi,

Running Linux Mint 18.1 MATE 64Bit fully updated on an older desktop tower.
I am having frequent crashes (several per hour) of both Mozilla Firefox and Mozilla Thunderbird?
Everything else on the desktop is 100% stable including a VMware Windows 10 Pro 64Bit virtual machine.
(tested all RAM memory for 3 days continuous with bootable MemTest86+ test ISO - no errors)

Desktop configuration:
- Linux Mint 18.1 MATE 64Bit Operating System
- 750watt modular power supply
- ASUS Sabertooth 990FX R2.0 motherboard with current non-beta BIOS
- AMD FX-8320 3.5GHz(4GHz turbo) 8-core CPU
(AMD microcode version 2.20160316.1 driver installed through Driver Manager)
- 32GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM memory
- GigaByte nVidia GeForce GTX 970 4GB GDDR5 Twin Turbo OC Edition PCIexpress graphic card
(proprietary nVidia version 378.13 Linux display drivers installed through Driver Manager)
- Western Digital 1TB SATA primary hard disk drive(system)
- Western Digital 1TB SATA secondary hard disk drive(data)
- D-Link DGE-528T copper gigabit PCI network adapter card
- Dual DVD-RW DL SATA CD/DVD disc drives
- Internal USB 2.0 multi-card reader
- Generic USB wired keyboard and USB wired mouse

Anyone know how to fix the constant crashing of Firefox & Thunderbird?
I don't think I had these issue with last Linux Mint 17.x. - seems to be a new issue with 18.x.
Any help would be appreciated, would like to use above desktop in a software development role.
Thanks!

Jesse

Did you try running them in "safe mode" ...?
