    Mountain Lion 10.8.3 crashes when opening up Firefox application

    Upgraded to Mountain Lion 10.8.3 in my Mac and now whenever I try to open up the Firefox application it just crashes the whole system. I donít think there is problem with Firefox as it worked properly before. How to resolve this issue now? Please help.

    Dear Friend...

    There might be two reasons behind this problem:-

    1. Firefox history saved history problem.
    2. Compatibility issue with your latest upgraded version of Mountain Lion 10.8.3.

    Try these solution for the problem:-

    1. Most of the time, the internet user never delete the save history from their devices due to which it creates lots of load on the browser which results in these kinds of issue. Same problem happens with you. You also have lots of saved history which you never deleted. So, just got your Firefox settings and delete all the history from the beginning. The refresh your system and restart your browser again.

    2. If the problem still persist, the another issue might be related to your compatibility of your Firefox browser with your OS. If this is the issue then either you download and install the compatible version of Firefox browser in your Mac OS or the best option for you is to download the SAFARI Browser install in your device.
    Safari is the only browser which is truly compatible with your Mac OS and MacBook device.

    Thank you...

    Dear,..........

    some softwares need to be updated ....
    after upgrading the OS....
    so, uninstall the present version and check for latest compatible version.
    Then download it and restart....

    New definitions are required for latest or upgraded OS.

    Hope you may understand..........

    Hi..

    Launch the Firefox browser

    and Select history


    Clear all the history and cache .


    As this reduces the load on the browser and relaunch the browser again .


    upgrade the Firefox to the latest version.

    or else

    Uninstall the Firefox , restart your device .


    this action will clear all the history , cookies , cache .

    Install the Firefox again .

    Thank you...

    Hello Dear Friend ...


    Follow the below procedure carefully


    I think the FIREFOX app has been crashed

    Also it might be installed partially

    So you need to get a New Version

    You can check the Firefox version

    For that open Firefox ../

    Click the "About Firefox" .... there you can see the Version of it


    So you better to get a good one from the following website



    http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/


    That is it

    Problem will almost be solved


    GOOD LUCK

    Re: Mountain Lion 10.8.3 crashes when opening up Firefox application

    first of all clear the cache memory and browsing history

    update the mac firmware or mountain lion

    it may be due to virus attack

    so download an antivirus and scan it completely

    uninstall the current firefox browser

    download a new version of it

    install it and use

    Well dear this problem is happening because of these reasons.
    <>it is due to cache memory is full.
    <>it is because of the virus files which have affected your system.

    <>you should scan your whole system with an antivirus.
    <>fireox which you are using is outdated,so download a new one and install that.
    You will not face the problem again.thank you
