Hello community.
Usually i have a lot of firefox tabs opened and my browser is crashing pretty often.
Today this happened again, but it was in a strange way. Usually it is not responding for some second then crash and then on windows with firefox trouble reports or logs i press restart.
But today it was in other way. Browser was not responding than i got crash and the command prompt (cmd) appear and shows and execute a lot of lines and then close and after that i got firefox troubleshooting window. Soo my question is why cmd appears ? It is normal for firefox to open cmd or might i caught a virus o something ?

Create a temporary new profile to test whether that fixes the problem: http://kb.mozillazine.org/Creating_a_ne ... on_Windows

It's been my own experience over the years that Firefox gets corrupted after 3 or 4 months of use. Creating a new profile usually solves the problem.

Been using this profile since 2008 with no crashes... seems to always run perfectly.... maybe I'm just not a heavy user?...but even with 30 extensions it still keeps on ticking.

Anyway, to the OP... you might also think about typing about:crashes into your location bar/Enter... then copy/paste the two latest crashes to here... copy/paste the links only though.
