    Tested a few methods. None worked to disable crash reporter (app) except this one;

    Delete the files crashreporter.exe and crashreporter.ini from the program directory (exit firefox first)

    Tested by manually crashing Firefox then seeing if the crash reporter application launches and if any crash reports are submitted.

    Manual crash can be initiated like this:

    In about:config change devtools.chrome.enabled value to true

    Open Scratchpad with Shift+F4 (when Firefox is running)

    Switch Environment tab to Browser and run this:

    Code:
    Cu.import("resource://gre/modules/ctypes.jsm");
    let zero = new ctypes.intptr_t(8);
    let badptr = ctypes.cast(zero, ctypes.PointerType(ctypes.int32_t));
    badptr.contents;
    It will crash.

    RE: I want to set focus to google search when i open a new window, instead of the adress bar.

    You can install an addon to set the focus: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/fir...-tab-override/

    RE: Firefox freezes for a few seconds randomly sometimes.

    Try disabling hardware acceleration by unchecking both options here:

    I installed your Luna Theme but couldn't find a way to modify the buttons. That doesn't mean that it cannot be done but the theme seems to use an image overlay.

    RE: I want to change the adress bar click behavior, so clicking the text once selects all the text, so i can start typing the adress of a website i want to visit right away.

    I'm not sure that it's a Firefox issue. I don't have that problem but check this in about:config

    browser.urlbar.clickSelectsAll
    value should be true

    If set to true then check mouse click options in control panel or run your mouse control software if you have any.

    RE: Disable the page actions button in the top right corner.

    You can use this: chrome.zip

    Extract the folder named Chrome and drop it in your FF Profile.

    Note: If you already have a Chrome folder then it probably won't work. In that case you'd need to make additional modifications.

    Folder contains a custom userChrome.css file to remove Page Actions. You need to close FF to make th changes.

    For anyone else reading: Contents of userChrome.css file

    Code:
    #pageActionButton {
        display: none !important;
    }
    Save as UNICODE (Encoding) with file name userChrome.css

    Seems to work, but I was hoping i could do it with a fix in about:config, instead of installing addons?

    Tried it already, didn't solve the problem. With that being said, i havent had any lag since upgrading to FF quantum. Will give it some time before marking it as solved.

    The luna XP theme used to work flawlessly, however an update some time ago broke it, so the back/forward buttons and the menu button is now invisible with the theme installed.

    It only works with the first website when you open FF. If you open a new tab and then click on the adress bar, it will not select all the text with just one click, so you have to mark all the text with your mouse manually and then delete it before you can type a website. This is very annoying. Google chrome didn't have this issue.

    Possibly a DNS Lookup issue - especially if you are using your ISP's DNS.

    RE: Scratchpad.

    In about:config change devtools.chrome.enabled value to true

    With Firefox running launch Scratchpad by pressing Shift+F4

    You only need to do that if you want to test that CrashReporter is disabled and want to initiate a crash manually for test purposes.
