    Hi
    All working fine here... maybe a plugin or extension?

    Tweaked anything in about:config, I do, like peer media (webrtc), disable pocket, disable ipv6 etc. I run ublock origin

    Can you create a new profile using firefox -p and see if it still crashes?

    Turns out it was the background theme. Changed to newer theme and all is back, though I still like the older dark theme better then any I've found yet
