How to get Thunderbird v.52 to complete upgrade and stop crashing

Upgrading to Thunderbird v.52 from v.45.8 crashes if you have incompatible Add-Ons. To get the upgrade to complete and stop crashing hold down the SHIFT key in Windows and OPEN Thunderbird. This puts it into Safe Mode, which temporarily disables the Add-Ons. You can go to Add-Ons and disable them. Thunderbird will then start. You can add the Add-Ons back one by one until you find the culprit or culprits. Lightening is one.

internet explorer crashes


If Internet Explorer is crashing , your dilema likely lies with a buggy browser add-on. However, Internet Explorer crashes can have a alot of other causes, including incompatibilities with hardware rendering and possible malware.


crashes are often cause by buggy add ons. you can check to see if that is the problem by running internet explorer with out add ons
To do so, open the Start menu and launch the All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons) shortcut.
If running Internet Explorer with no browser add-ons fixed your problem, you can disable the add-ons one by one to identify the one causing the problem. Click the gear menu and select Manage add-ons to open the Manage Add-ons window.
Select an add-on in the Toolbars and Extensions category and click the Disable button to disable it. Disable add-ons one by one - or disable them all and enable them one by one - until you identify the add-on causing the problem.

malware can often be a problem with applications crashing especially for an browser like IE. so scan your system with antivirus software for sure.

firefox crase every 15 minuts plz fix 4 us


Mozilla's Firefox Internet browser is one of the most popular browsers in the world, second only to Microsoft's Internet Explorer.

As of April 2011, Firefox held a 21.63 percent share of the worldwide browser market. Unfortunately, problems with plug-ins, websites and general operating system incompatibility occasionally cause Firefox to become unstable and crash.

To prevent these crashes from occurring again, the cause of the crash needs to be identified so an effective fix can be implemented.

Take note of the action or circumstance that lead to the crash.
Pay particular attention to the timing of the crash and whether it occurred while launching Firefox, when trying to view a specific website, when attempting to download a file or at a seemingly random time.


Repeat the action that caused the crash to see whether it causes Firefox to crash again. Some crashes are caused by memory problems or other external factors and may be a one-time occurrence.

Repeating the action determines whether the crash was caused by errors within Firefox or if there were other factors involved.

Hold the "Shift" key down on your keyboard and relaunch Firefox.
This will launch the application in "Safe Mode," disabling all plug-ins and themes.

Repeat the action that caused the crash; if the problem was caused by a plug-in or theme then the crash will not occur this time.

Open a new Firefox tab and type "about:crashes" without the quotation marks into the navigation bar.
Press "Enter" to load the Firefox crash log listing.

Select the most recent entry and scroll through it to find the name of the plug-in, theme or other component that caused the crash.

Disable or update the component to remove the cause of the crash.
This information should be contained in the "Details>Signature" or "Details>Crash Reason" sections.

Open the Tools menu in Firefox and select "Add-ons" if you cannot resolve the crash problem by disabling or updating a plug in.
Scroll through the list of installed browser add ons, disabling add ons one at a time in an attempt to correct the error.

If the crash occurs when trying to view certain types of content, such as streaming video or other media files, focus in disabling add-ons that are related to that type of content.

Open the Help menu and select the "Troubleshooting Information" option if crashes occur only when attempting to download files.

Locate the "Application Basics" entry, then click the "Open Containing Folder" link to open the folder containing your Firefox profile.

Exit Firefox, then select the "downloads.sqlite" file in your profile folder and delete it.
This removes your download history, eliminating any problems with the file and allowing Firefox to create a new file when it launches again.

Update Firefox.
Some crashes are caused by problems within the Firefox program itself, such as problems with specific operating systems or crashes that occur only in new Firefox releases.

Updates may contain fixes to these Firefox crashes, eliminating the crash problem once the browser update is installed.
