Gah. Your tab just crashed - Firefox 62

Post by Pierre » Fri Sep 14, 2018 11:16 am

at least that's what the error says . . .

this is on Both LinuxMint 18 & LinuxMint 19 - Mate on both.

the solution, was:
- Help - Trouble Shooting - Refresh Firefox . . this is a common fix !.
with all the add-ons, now gone - FF 62 now works, just fine.
and the Preferences, now give a few changes, on what you're used to :?

put those add-ons back, one at time and see which one is the issue.

I've only had that happen while running Firefox and just having installed an update for it (while it was running). Closing and restarting Firefox was enough to fix it. Didn't happen again.

This was a regular occurrence for me as well.

Last night, for the first time, I actually remembered to close and restart Firefox after updating it, therefore preventing the inevitable crash.
