Since I changed my default search engine to DuckDuckGo my FireFox browser (updated to latest version) has crashed 5 times.
The first time I attempted to go to CP by clicking a quick-link.
The other 4 times it crashed when I attempted to load https://drive.google.com/
I changed my default search engine back to Google and now it hasn't crashed again.
Help! I'm being held hostage by a maniacal search engine!!
I will let it run for a while and do my normal work and change it back to duckduckgo again later and if it crashes again I will really wonder why.
I'm not attempting to break the rule, "correlation does not imply causation", but it is a terrible coincidence.
Oh, Google Drive Tab crashed now and it looks like this ==>
Looks like it is related to running Android Studio 3.2, because more tabs were crashing and I finally killed Android Studio and they stopped crashing. Ugh! https://i.stack.imgur.com/oSgqR.png[^]
Oops, while attempting to save that image, another tab crashed even though Android Studio was closed.
I had just rebooted but maybe I need to reboot again. Argh!!!!
Probably Win10 update that I don't know about.?!?
Okay, Android Studio was still loaded. Had to kill it via task manager.
I changed my search engine back to DuckDuckGo.
Android Studio is getting worse all the time, unfortunately.
Really terrible. I've been running FF for months with no problems.
I'm back and I'm on MS Edge. Let's see if things crash. I'll push it to the limits by running Android Studio too and see what happens.
I changed my default search engine in MS Edge to DuckDuckGo.
I started Androids Studio and was doing some work. Edge is fine.
I clicked a link in Android studio and FF came up (forgot it was still my default browser) -- well FF actually blinked a screen, and crashed instantly. So, the point?...It is a FF problem. I probably do have "low memory" (see this image of current memory free 2.1GB : https://i.stack.imgur.com/advLh.png[^] ) but I don't think FF should crash because of that. But, it seems that it is a huge memory hog itself.
My FF version is Quantum 63.0.3.
FireFox, you've let me down.
It may be a conflict between FF 63.0.3 and Android Studio 3.2 (latest).
When FF crashed that last time, my Android Studio also crashed.
I updated Android Studio today to the latest and it has been since then that both of them are crashing.
That's really quite terrible. Maybe they depend upon some common component??
This would be so rare (using Android Studio and FF) that it will be difficult to determine.
I've fallen down the rabbit hole and it is very lonely.
