    RE: Disable the bookmark this page icon in the top right corner.

    Click the three dots and you should see the option to remove it. Right click "Bookmark this page"

    That seems to work. I just dont get why FF wont allow us to remove the icon by dragging and dropping the icon away from the toolbar, just like most other icons. But your solution works.

    I don't get any pop up. There's a ton of about:config tweaks that I use but too many to post here and explain in detail.
    I did some research. Unchecking Allow Firefox to send crash reports to Mozilla doesn't disable the crash reporter and doesn't prevent it from popping up from what i have read.

    I have tried MOZ_CRASHREPORTER_DISABLE in about:config but seems like they removed the command.

    Well FF should not be crashing after a clean install. Try this:

    In FF address bar type about:support then press Enter.

    Try restarting with addons disabled and see if you get the same problems. Also consider using the Refresh option.

    Also visit Google (click this link)

    Click on the padlock and right click the arrow. Click "More Information" then "View Certificate"

    Post a screenshot please.

    My impression is that FF is a bit impatient when it comes to downloading a page or a site. When my internet is slow is when most crashes happen but as soon as I reload that page it opens it. Until v57 that was happening very rarely, mabe a price to pay for increased speed ?

    FF hasn't been crashing for some time, but i remember that it did sometimes before quantum. I just want to disable the crash reporter that pops up when it happens, without sending anything to mozilla.

    The screengrab is there in that link.

    The method to disable the crash reporter is also in your link

    Not sure if it's still valid, (Quantum "57" broke a lot of things), and it's a little unclear as to specifics check the paragraph after Can I disable Crash Reporter?

    this does involve editing the registry and adding (Windows, or Firefox
    variables and setting them, not sure from their wording), so it's something they do not seem to want you to do Obviously if you go this route, backup everything including a the registry and preferably the whole system before you start

    Yeah, im not a big fan of doing it that way, i would prefer a way to change it in about:config.

    I can understand your feelings but it may well be that Mozilla does not want too many users opting out of the telemetry sent after crashes, so are not going to provide a simple About Config option.

    Someone may have automated the procedure that they do offer, but I have not seen anything in my "travels"
