Windows 7: Firefox 19.0.2 Crashes Immediately After Closing

Firefox 19.0.2 Crashes Immediately After Closing

Mozilla doesn't seem to have a clue what's causing the crashes.
I'm running only one other app which is the newest Flash (from Adobe website).
The faulting module is XUL.DLL.
Attatched a couple of files from Event Viewer.
The "after close" crash is sporatic (maybe once every two or three days).
Anyone have an idea ?

Hi bej,

While researching, I came across various instances where 'similar crashes' are reported with 'Mozilla Firefox version 19.0.2'; appears to be a known issue.

You may try the troubleshooting steps listed in this tutorial to see if that helps:

If the issue persists, you may try moving back to install an older version of 'Firefox' to and check results.
Hope this helps.

I didn't do anything to correct the problem, but it seems to be gone.
No after closing crashes in a week so, it's solved AFAIC.

Hi bej,

Glad that 'Firefox 19' has stopped crashing anymore; thank you for the confirmation.
It is likely that either one of the following automatic updates (Firefox/Plugins/Windows/ Drivers/Security Software) fixed the issue.

Do reply if you have any further questions; glad to assist.
