Since moving to High Sierra my Firefox Browser crashes in sites like Facebook and Twitter. It crashes when it sees a video on the page.

I am on a Retina Macbook Pro and did not convert to the AFS yet.

Anyone else having any issues?

Yes I'm having issue with Firefox too, but much worse. It automatically shuts down the browser at my front page even if I do nothing for a while. With YouTube open, within seconds my Mac will shutdown and ask me to "restart due to a problem". Forced to use Safari for now I guess........

Whenever reporting a software issue, the reporter should always mention the version. Are you folks running V54.01?

very much so. Also on a macbook pro and on a 12" macbook, but I *did* upgrade to APFS. (I doubt that's relevant.) Reported it in feedback assistant as well as to mozilla (many times) before switching to Safari for the time being. (Can't stay on Safari: Need a browser that syncs to windows/linux too.)

That crashed too today though, in a not-going-to-quit way that even force-quit couldn't get over.

Yeah, High Sierra Beta 2 (17A306f) is crashing Firefox 54.0.1. I can't pinpoint exactly what, but certainly when playing either Flash or HTML5. Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, and other sites with multimedia are all crashing constantly. I've had to resort to Chrome, which is working perfectly fine.

Firefox + High Sierra = pretty much no HTML5 content. On my home MacBook (2011) it doesn't play any of it at all, but on my work iMac (2015) it's even worse - video pages will crash Firefox, and even some pages like Facebook or Detroit Free Press will crash my entire Mac with a kernel panic!

Not sure if it's an update from Mozilla or Apple or both that is needed, but definitely a glaring issue. Beta life...

Yep seeing this problem loads. Running 17A306f and FF 54.0.1. Pretty much every site with some kind of multimedia / video causes FF to crash and reboot my Mac. Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and even the site of a local newspaper.

Updating to 17A315i (dev beta 4/public beta 3) fixed FF crashes for me.

Using build 17A315I currently, fixed the problem for me.

Apple also sent an email asking in regards to whether the build has fixed the issue or not which I replied yes.

Hope this helps everyone.

I always assume if you are posting here in the beta forum you are running the latest beta. I certainly would not post unless I tried the latest first.

^^^^But not everyone does. Just a reminder, BTW, Firefox V54.01 is not a Beta, but the last release.
