The two last crashes happened only by clicking on an image file name in the list ! had no time to right-click on it !!!
Those are a lot of different-looking crashes... all but https://crash-stats.mozilla.com/report/index/73e868be-058b-4733-a647-82fe22141227 involve the JS engine, so tentatively moving this there.

What web page does this happen on?

ALL pages ! I did it again :

I chose an image at random on a google search in the "Image" tab and did a right-click on it,

the context menu (CM) comes but NO menu item can be chosen from it ! The CM is frozen ! 

I had to chose another opened Firefox window and go back to make the CM disapear but then... FF crashes !!!

When I right-click (RC) on the image and select "save image as"; the "save as" window opens. I then select a jpg file in the file list and then, the CM froze...

Re precision :

Ps: you should add a "edit/modify" option on the posts so we don't have to add new one each time...
Sorry for the late response: this got triaged to our team, but still fell through the cracks somehow.

In my experience, this many diverse stacks on a single machine points more towards flakey hardware than a software fault. Most of these crashes are in the middle of a heap or stack traversal of some sort. A number of people with similarly diverse stacks have found memory errors by running memtest86 [1] for a few hours.

Is this still reproducing? If so, could you try running memtest86 on the machine?
