I am using Ubuntu 18.04.4 and my Firefox keeps on crashing.

I have tried the following commands :

sudo apt-get remove ttf-mscorefonts-installer
sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer
sudo apt-get install flashplugin-installer

But nothing happen and Firefox is still crashing.

Can anyone help me to solve this issue?

  • Use some other commands, maybe they help ;-)

  • Edit your question and show me ls -al /var/crash. Also, log into another user account (create one if you don't already have one) and see if Firefox crashes there. That'll help tell us where the problem is. Report back. Start comments to me with @heynnema or I may miss them.

  • start in the command line with firefox -p and select a new profile. Maybe one of you addons fails. If it crashes, display the error output
