LM 18.3 Frequent Firefox Crashes

LM 18.3 Sylvia Xfce
Is it just me or has anyone noticed Firefox crashing frequently? It started after the last Firefox update.

Can you try disabling all your Addons/Extensions in Firefox?
Then come back and post if it helped or not. Cheers

Happen to have been downloading some videos this evening with Firefox 69 on my Mate 18.2 test box. No problems.

If your problem has been solved, please edit the thread title.

Can you try another browser, temporarily, and on the same sites that FF crashed on last time.
Try Iridium - just see if it is a browser issue or not.

I may have accidentally fixed it , in preferences>data collection and use, clicking all four boxes. Apparently Firefox doesn't like being locked out of its own browser on my computer.
