Details

(crash signature)

I'm using Firefox 14.0.1, though this issue was also present in v13. There are a few bugs that cover similar issues but no exact match.

When I click "View Image" in the context menu, copy+paste an image URL, or click (for example) the "Full-size image" link on a Google Image Search result, Firefox will sometimes crash.

This never happens immediately after the browser is launched, but over time it's inevitable.

I've submitted 20-30+ Crash Reports over the past couple of months. I'm glad to provide more detailed crash info on request (and with specific instructions about how to do so).
Can you provide crash IDs from about:crashes?
Does it happen in Safe Mode (see https://support.mozilla.org/kb/troubleshoot-firefox-issues-using-safe-mode)?

Yeah, it might be related to one of your extensions.
I disabled the "Old Default Image Style" extension and haven't had the problem since.

Marking as resolved, thanks to all who responded.
