Firefox constantly crashing (ver 94.0.1)

ever since the update for Firefox landed on my Manjaro installation it constantly crashes its tabs.

I cannot see what is causing the issue.
Anyone else here with a samish problem?

I would start with a clean profile and no extensions to rule out uncooperative extensions. I don’t have any problems here with Nightly or the distribution release. 94.0.1-1 was released the other day to Unstable and Testing branches. At very least go to about:support and click on “Refresh Firefox”

Have you tried launching it from a console, and check there for errors?


Agree with the two suggestions above as the place to start.

You can start firefox from the console with the --safe-mode option, which disables themes and addons. Or, you can start firefox from the console with the -P option which will open up a dialog where you can create and select a new/clean profile. Firefox doesn’t have a man page but it does have a --help option. This will determine if the problem exists with a theme, addon, or a preference change, or something else.

Yep, thanks, it was actually an error because of an extension.
