Reproduced with str from comment 0 on Fx 34.0.5 (Build ID: 20141126041045) and 35 beta 8 (Build ID: 20141229214612) on Windows 7 64-bit - Firefox hangs and Crash reporter window appears if TrackMeNot 0.8.13 extension is installed. Encountered same behavior when I remove the addon (no restart required) and close Firefox. Not reproducible with Aurora 36.0a2 (Build ID: 20150111004004) nor Nightly 37.0a1 (Build ID: 20150111030201) e10s enabled/disabled.

I notified the developers of the extension about this.
Hi, Thank you for reporting this bug. I'm trying to gather details about it so I can reproduce it and fix it. Are you using firefox default settings, it seems that there might be some issue if you've check "always run firefox in private mode". Are you using this setting? If not, this might be an unrelated bug. Thank you, vincent
I'm unaware of what FF private mode is, I can't locate where it is set in the options, and I can't find anything relative in about:config either. Please advise
Tim, I think Vincent is referring to a setting in TrackMeNot, not a setting in Firefox.
Tim, Jorge, Actually I was referring to the "private browsing mode". Sorry, if I was not clear. If firefox is running only in "private browsing mode" (custom privacy parameters), then TMN does not run properly (some permission was missing). I've addressed this issue and posted the update on the beta channel: https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/downloads/file/296994/trackmenot-0.8.14a-fx.xpi?src=dp-btn-devchannel Could you please confirm that it fix your problem? If that does not solve the problem then I have to find another way to reproduce it. Thank you, Vincent
Bugzilla will not allow me to install this proposed fix (connection failure). I do not use "private browsing mode", so if the fix was targeting a bug associated with this mode, then it will probably not be corrected in my situation. Thanks, Tim
Tim, Normally TMN should be already be updated (version 0.8.16) and the bug should be fixed. If not, please let me know. vincent
