Firefox Crashing/Freezing Constantly and Resetting to Defaults
For the past few weeks, I have been having a lot of issues with Firefox crashing. Every time I try to open up a new tab or load a web page it will freeze. Sometimes this is only for a few minutes, while other times this lasts up to an hour and I have
I tried a complete fresh install, and the problem was fixed for a few days, however, after going for a couple of days without internet access and trying to get online again, the problem returned even worse than before. More than that, now from time to time my Firefox completely resets to default settings, clearing out my "New Tab" page's pinned tabs, as well as removing whichever theme I had applied.
This glitch has rapidly made Firefox unusable for me, which makes me very upset as I far prefer it to Google Chrome. While I don't know that it would help discern the issue, below is also a list of all the extensions I have installed as well as the plugins I have that are always active, (with all my other plugins either being disabled or "ask to activate"). With the exception of "Adblock Edge", I have had all the extensions installed for several months with no issues. "Adblock Edge" itself I only installed after uninstalling and reinstalling Firefox to try and fix my issue. My current Firefox version is 35.
Adblock Edge 2.1.7
Private Tab 0.1.7.3
Adblock Plus 2.6.7
Shockwave Flash 220.127.116.116
Unity Player 18.104.22.168269

Firefox 4 freezes constantly to the point where I want nothing to do with Firefox ever again but I decided to uninstall and go back to v3.6.17 which works properly
I googled the problem I was having and found many other users with the same issues, to which there were some suggested causes and solutions. Unfortunately none of those corrected the severe freezing problem which could take up to 10 minutes to clear.[More]
