ex-christian crashing Firefox

Question

Today anytime I try to open the Ex-C forums with Firefox 61, it crashes. Anyone else using FF and having this issue? It gives me the "Gah! Your tab just crashed" message, and if I turn off that feature, it crashes the whole browser. I'm posting this from Chrome. 

It's been fine up to today. I let it auto-submit the crash to Mozilla (several times). The main site opens fine. I also tried "refreshing" FF by disabling all add-ons and creating a new profile. Crasharoonie.

Maybe I'll take a look. I gave up on Firefox years ago.

PLEASE EXCUSE THE ANNOYING COMMERCIAL BREAKS IN THE CONVERSATION:

As with everything these days, the cost of keeping the Ex-C forum up and running has been rising. Inflation? In part, but the primary reason is this: As participation in the forums grows, costs increase. The Ex-C forums will remain free of charge to everyone, but if you believe this little corner of the Internet provides value to you or others, and you feel inclined to help keep us online, please consider making a one-time donation or becoming a regular contributor. Contribution options appear under the "Upgrade" link above, and can be accessed by clicking here.

Oh, and as an incentive (no, you won't be given any bogus promises of eternal bliss), if you do become a regular contributor by signing up for any monthly or yearly patron package, this annoying ADVO will disappear.

And now, back to the regularly scheduled conversation...

I'm considering doing so. I did a fresh install and got the same thing. Oddly, it's been working fine until today. Maybe the new version is doing something stupid.

Nah, I don't even want to open Firefox to look. Why poke the hive? I guess it works fine for lots of people, I'm just not one of them. Good luck.

It seems to be the latest version of FF 61 on Linux. Earlier versions work fine, as does Chrome. I like FF for all of the ad-blocking and add-ons for clearing crap out of Facebook. Ah well, now I know it isn't the sites that are doing anything differently, just lousy programming on the part of Mozilla.

I dropped back to 59 on Linux, told it from the install to not call home for updates, and it is stable and working fine. Mozilla has a cow over anyone recommending this, but their latest version on Linux crashes all the time.
