    It’s probably a firefox extension causing the problem. Try disabling any extensions you’ve installed to see if that improves stability.

      I’m not aware of installing any ‘extensions’, Mark. What are they?
      Thanks for responding.

    They would listed be under Tools>Add-ons. These add additional functionality to Firefox and if they were written poorly can cause trouble. See if you have any installed.

    Beyond that anything else I’d suggest would come directly from the link I posted above so take a look at that article.

    Mark! Many thanks! I think your suggestion did the trick. Fingers crossed!
