    Mozzila Firefox always crashing.

    It's been almost 3 months already i've tried everything. Uninstalling it. Installing it. Uninstalling it. Deleted everything that has to do with Firefox. Everytime i get at least 5 "gah your tab just crashed" every hour or so. If i am using Youtube it's worse. I have to close Firefox and then open it again and sometimes it will work but then it starts crashing again an hour later of viewing.

    I've tried Chrome and Edge. Same thing. What could it be?

    How much memory do you have? (Ram)

    maybe his laptop has bad/faulty RAM chips.

    run Memtest86 on that laptop and check for RAM errors. if errors show up there, have the RAM chips replaced with good ones

    Did you at any time disable the System Page File? Or change it's default value? Sounds like you are running out of available memory or it's hitting some mem that's flaky.

    Or maybe a memory leak- gosh, that sounds an ancient problem..

    Does the same thing happen if you create a new user for test purposes, log in as that user and use a browser for 'long enough'?

    When logged in as your current user, please post a screenshot of your task manager showing resource use, e.g. a couple of minutes after logging on and not starting any new programs, then after, say, 30 mins of using your browser.

    What does your Reliability History report? There should be a red x corresponding to the crash.

    Try running this free program and posting a screenshot similar to this:Mozzila Firefox always crashing.-1.png
