Firefox v118 just crashed!

I come from Windows 7 and still using it.
But i never run into such stuff under Windows 7 for decades!

I’m confused… two tabs was opened, machine with 64gb of ram

:sweat_smile: we all have our bad days :wink:

Is it still running underneath ?

ps -A | grep firefox

I already restarted it.

15812 ?        00:01:19 firefox

Relax, browser is one of the most complex programs on your system - it will crash eventually depending on your actions or some mistakes / bugs by Mozilla in that case…

P.S. RAM also has likely nothing to do with hard crash :upside_down_face:

If you want to know more about reasons, if lucky - go see error journal

journalctl -p3 -xb

repeated crash ?
anything bad here:

journalctl -S 2023-10-14 | grep firefox

edit: command correction

No need for sudo here :wink:

No, only one. I hope it will not develop into disease.

Having 64 GB ram isn’t really going to help if the hardware is really dated. Windows 7 came out in 2009. What is the hardware?

Dell Precision 7520

This is a laptop from 2017. Excellent Linux compatibility, it was delivered with a Linux (Ubuntu 16.04) option. Don’t worry.

Re: Firefox: Sadly, the quality of FF has gone down over the years. More crashes and bugs than on Windows are to be expected. If it’s just once or twice a day, I recommend to just deal with it.

Have journalctl -f running in a terminal while you use your system as you normally do.
Observe the output if/when you get a Firefox’ crash.

Or install journalctl-desktop-notification-git from AUR. It will automatically notify you if any error occurred in the journalctl log.

When I play to run echo 'Test: Firefox crashes' | systemd-cat -p err, the popup quickly appears on any DE.

Why are running in MBR mode instead of UEFI?

Yeah, this machine is beaut.

Aha, get it, will be helpful to find the root cause

Because there is a Windows 7 installation on the same nvme driver. Unfortunately i can’t ditch it due to heavy use of old multimedia software.
